Amthal secures St Albans School by upgrading security systems to create a secure environment

Amthal has created a scalable programme of works to upgrade security at St Albans School and ensure staff and pupils can inspire learning and develop values and skills to the highest standards, in a secure environment. With former students including the renowned Professor Stephen Hawking, St Albans School, ‘the first school in Hertfordshire’ has a rich history as a celebrated independent boys’ school and co-educational Sixth Form. With an architectural mixture of buildings dating back from the Roman-era cellar, to modern extensions built in the 1990s, alongside a well-equipped field study centre and sports facilities, the grounds-care team was keen to ensure security was kept up-to-date. Co-curricular facilities Amthal was able to present an all-encompassing solution right from the perimeter systems through to CCTV and internal access control" Gary Douglas, Estates Manager at St Albans School commented: “As a school catering for over 860 pupils, it is our priority to deliver a robust level of security for everyone who works and learns here. In addition, the historical significance of the School is something we are immensely proud of and we are committed to ensuring the buildings and facilities are cared for at every level.” “With a view to upgrading our security to enable smarter solutions, Amthal was able to present an all-encompassing solution right from the perimeter systems through to CCTV and internal access control. These enhancements were carefully planned into a programme of works that is scaleable to work around learning timetables and the continued projects designed to further our excellent academic and co-curricular facilities.” Right security systems Amthal worked closely with the team at St Albans School right from the initial design process, acting in a project management capacity to ensure the right security systems were selected to suit the school. Not only did this require solutions that offered the smartest capability for the perimeter systems, where Avigilon CCTV was installed, but also working within school buildings and including Paxton Access Control that could be installed seamlessly, all without compromising on the historical ambience of the architecture throughout the site. Today, St Albans School is one of the leading day schools in the country, a centre of educational excellence" Paul Rosenthal, Sales Director at Amthal added: “There has been a school on the Abbey Gateway site for more than 1,000 years. Today, St Albans School is one of the leading day schools in the country, a centre of educational excellence, occupying a campus that has been transformed and continues to grow.” Expandable solution “It is an absolute privilege as a local company to be on board to support the Estates Team to secure the School. We were very careful in our planning and design stages to structure a full team approach with leading suppliers, and present an expandable solution with the capacity to integrate with the requirements of this very impressive multi-dimensional educational institution.” Independently owned, Amthal Fire & Security is dedicated to satisfying end user needs for security safety and convenience offering design, installation, service and remote monitoring of advanced electronic fire & security solutions, including intruder, Fire, Access and CCTV systems. Amthal Fire & Security is accredited by the Security Systems and Alarm Inspection Board (SSAIB) United Kingdom Accreditation Services (UKAS) and British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE.)

Aiphone launches improvements to IX2 IP intercom and security system

Aiphone has announced significant improvements to its full IP IX intercom and security solution. The new and upgraded features built into the new IX2 series include improved audio and camera functionality, large touch screen monitors and communication with up to 9,999 door stations. IX2 IP intercom and security solution “With no server or licence fees, the IX2 system offers highly affordable P2P full IP video entry security, internal communication and multicast paging,” said Wyatt Taylor, Managing Director of Aiphone UK Ltd. “Utilising its ability to connect directly to a network, all these functions can be implemented between remote locations over large areas.” “However, what elevates IX2 above other traditional and IP intercom systems currently available for large scale installations, is the ease at which it can be integrated with third-party systems. As a result, we are able to provide a totally integrated intercom and security solution, including access control, IP network cameras and video management software (VMS), such as Avigilon, ExacqVision and Milestone, as well as Lenel Onguard access control management software out of the box and without the need to buy any licenses.” Scalable solution offering video entry security IX2 has the capacity to provide communication with a practically infinite number of intercom stations IX2 has the capacity to provide communication with a practically infinite number of intercom stations. Video entry security, internal communication, emergency stations and multicast paging are all able to be implemented between remote locations over large areas and distances, making the IX2 system an ideal solution for education campuses, as well as any other type of application involving multiple locations such as airports, railway stations and parking facilities. Key features of IX2 include: No wiring-distance limitations: LAN and VPN connections enable implementation over extensive areas and between remote locations. Peer-to-peer configuration results in space savings, reduced installation time and lower cost. Simply connect the units to Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches. No need for a dedicated server, with the additional benefit of eliminating the risk of system downtime due to server malfunction. 7-inch handset with a touchscreen which can be used in domestic and commercial environments. Hands free touch screen monitors. Picture in picture video can show the door station camera and an overhead camera simultaneously. Video intercom between master monitors. Newly designed IX panels which comply with DDA regulations, e.g. offer clear visual guidance and a blue halo button. Audio and video SIP Integration with Cisco IP phone systems. ONVIF compatibility provides the option for images captured by call panel cameras to be integrated with a video surveillance system. SD card slots on panels and monitors enable video and audio data to be recorded and backed-up. Call log facility on each handset provides data trails. IX2 is also equipped with some advanced functionality rarely found in other IP Intercom POE systems. These include: Call queuing Up to 20 calls can be queued and prioritised on an IX-MV7 master station When multiple calls are made to the same monitor station, the IX2 system places the calls in a queue which is displayed on the LCD screen. On the calling end, users are given notification that their calls are in the queue. Up to 20 calls can be queued and prioritised on an IX-MV7 master station. The importance of each call, e.g. normal, priority or urgent, can be indicated by the display of respective red, amber or green colours on the master station. Higher priority calls are moved automatically to the top of the list. Call transfers Calls and conversations within the IX2 system can be transferred to up to 10 other IX-MV7 monitor stations. The transfers can be done manually or through a variety of system settings. With Delay Transfer, for example, the system automatically transfers calls which are not answered within a pre-set time. An Absent Transfer feature immediately calls another IX-MV7 master station when someone is away from their desk, whilst Scheduled Transfer automatically transfers calls to another IX-MV7 master station during pre-determined times, e.g. out of hours.
