Fermax Electrónica S.A.U. news
Evelina has had many different brands of door entry system, as is often the case with NHS Hospitals spread across the UK. Managers at Evelina wished to have a standardised system across the wards in order to improve operating efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. Upgrades needed to be quick problem free and cost-effective. Each independent ward utilises a self-contained door entry system to control security critical access to their busy nursing area. The Maternity Ward provides a good example of a security critical area that requires an intuitive and cost-effective system to control access with the ability of a ward receptionist to permit entry and exit via an audio-video communication link. User-friendly features Fermax Area Manager Andy Saxton worked closely with Evelina’s nominated installation company to ensure that the Fermax system design using DUOX and VEO met the hospital’s needs. Based on 2 wires with aesthetically pleasing profiles and user-friendly features and functionality the Fermax DUOX system with VEO video monitors was a perfect match for the hospitals requirements. Purely digital in nature, the DUOX 2 wire system functions perfectly using most types of cable which meant that it could be retro-fitted onto the existing system infrastructure, thereby avoiding the excessive costs of re-cabling. Equipped with the Photocaller function which allows for the time and date stamping of visitors, the Fermax DUOX VEO monitor delivered the ideal solution.

Fermax is delighted to have been able to offer an ideal, cost effective solution to allow installation partners to complete a successful upgrade of a large apartment complex in Nottingham. Working with its approved partner FSE Security systems and involving over 90 apartments at Marina Park Nottingham, the challenge was to upgrade an old third-party audio only system to a modern audio-video system with the minimum of disturbance to residents and without incurring excessive high cost. By using the Fermax 2 Wire Duox system with SKYLINE surface mounted panels and VEO-XS flat screen hands-free video monitors, the installation was completed using existing cables throughout, achieving major reductions in time and material cost. Benefit of image storage Residents were delighted to be able to upgrade to the new Fermax VEO-XS monitor using innovative 2 wire DUOX technology offering the high-quality performance of a purely digital system. As well as its modern, slimline design, the VEO XS hands-free monitor offers the added benefit of image storage and retrieval using the PHOTOCALLER function, enabling residents to view images of visitors and callers to their apartment whilst they were not at home. A delighted installer commented: “The cables were a selection of cat 5.8 core alarm cable and flat twin 0.5 mains flex; all cables suited the DUOX system which was easy to install and easy to program. Most of all it was user friendly which to me as an installer is the most important quality.”
