On Point - Interphone Delivers For Sutton Development

Interphone, the security systems and building technology integrator, has completed an advanced project for Ardmore Construction at the high profile Sutton Point development.

Interphone was appointed to design and install the integrated security systems, which includes fibre infrastructure, BPT door entry, PAC access control, IP-networked CCTV and an IRS communal aerial system with SKY Q.

 

Award winning

The installation has been recognised by the UK Outstanding Security Performance Awards with Interphone nominated as a 2019 finalist in the Outstanding Security Installer category.

“Through the effort and commitment of our team the project was successfully completed on-time, within budget -  and notwithstanding design changes in the building along the way,” said Albert Dwek, Sales Manager at Interphone.

In particular, the Interphone project team took the decision to move to fibre infrastructure to improve performance and ensure it could deliver a high-specification security system. As a result, the company created a fibre backbone network, which allows CCTV images to be viewed in true 1080p/4k without compromising any other components of the system.

Interphone worked closely with services engineers QuinnRoss Consultants throughout the project. Michael Keenleyside, Electrical Engineer at Quinn Ross said: “Interphone was flexible and adaptive throughout the design and installation phases of the development, which ensure that any changes to system requirements were handled quickly and efficiently.”

 

CCTV

The CCTV solution incorporates a site-wide, IP-networked camera system and full-perimeter PTZ (Pan Tilt and zoom) camera system from HIKvision. The full-perimeter system runs in real-time over three towers, three remote stations and two virtual concierge points with interlock ability. The external PTZ camera images, recorded onsite, are also shared with the local police. This means the management company can keep the site secure for its residents, while allowing the police to protect the area in and around the development against crime.

 

Access control

The PAC access control system enables all management tasks related to the tenants and staff to be administered from the central computer as and when required, ensuring the highest level of security around the site and added peace of mind. Meanwhile, BPT’s XIP door entry system offers significantly greater compression, providing the clearest and highest quality AV currently available, even with the significant background noise. The added PCS concierge facility also has improved switchboard software performance, delivering full control of building communications at two desks, so the system will never be engaged and never miss a visitor call.

Picture: Sutton Point is a new community at the heart of the London Borough of Sutton.
