Visual Annunciation System
Recently we engineered
a system for a local psychologist office.
The buildings front lobby doors and elevators would lock down every evening, and only tenants who had a code could access the doors and the elevators. Adjacent to the doors we installed a keypad inside a phone box. The keypad was just a typical IEI 212se. Clients of the psychologist could enter a code which would turn on an illuminated alert system in each office contained within the suite, four offices in all. The psychologists would know at this point that there was a client waiting at the lobby door needing to enter and come up to the top floor of the building by a bright blue indicator light mounted just below the ceiling. The psychologist can choose to let the client in by pressing a remote control. This would simultaneously trigger the front lobby doors to unlock granting the client access into the lobby, and also triggering the elevators to grant access to the top floor for a brief period of time. The client could then freely enter the building and go up the the psychologists waiting room. Once in the waiting room the client is greeted with a control panel which is used to announce their presence in the waiting room. By selecting the button for the psychologist they are there to see, a corresponding green light comes on in the office of that doctor to let them know that their patient is in the waiting room.
The whole thing was designed and built by TA Security. The psychologists can have clients come in after the building locks down at night, with minimal disturbance to their sessions, while retaining building security.
Museum Access Control Display Case
This is a museum display case. When the access control system on it failed we were asked to rebuild it from scratch. The body of the cabinet is made of a 1" thick bullet proof synthetic material. The door has ten solenoid bolts. The mounting of the keypad in the glass limited our choice of equipment so we went with an original Corby System. The keypad had to not only unlock the door but have the functionality to turn on the lights and the heater in the display case.
