EVVA ICS locking system protects Sanavita Alterszentrum Lindenpark retirement village, Windisch
EVVA ICS locking system protects Sanavita Alterszentrum Lindenpark retirement village, Windisch

People feel at home where they feel good and are familiar with the surroundings. The retirement village in the centre of Windisch in a park-like environment, is an ideal place to be for people in their third and fourth stages of life. The facility provides different types of living, support and care, plenty of variety and numerous opportunities to take part in group activities. EVVA inner code system Elderly residents with different residential options including care and support call Sanavita Alterszentrum Lindenpark their home. A pleasant and appealing atmosphere within and around the development is paramount – it goes without saying that security is also in the focus. In terms of locking systems owners opted for a combination of mechanical and electronic locking system: EVVA ICS and Xesar. Xesar: guaranteed healthcare Particularly healthcare facilities are highly sensitive areas that not everyone should have access to. A highly secure, yet flexible locking system is required to ensure access restrictions and simultaneously grant medical staff fast access to individual areas. You can flexibly grant and revoke access authorisations. As a result, exclusively authorised users are granted access. Consequently, the existing locking system at Alterszentrum Lindenpark was replaced by Xesar. Safeguarding medical cabinets The electronic solution now also secures medical cabinets including drawers containing toxic substances as well as refrigerated medical cabinets at the corresponding ward facilities. The Xesar wall reader as the updater unit at the main entrance guarantees fast security within the existing virtual network. Xesar wall readers in combination with electronic motorised cylinders (EMZY) have been installed in all outside doors. The project was managed by EVVA Rotkreuz and local EVVA Partner UTO Sicherheitstechnik AG took care of system installation. Securing residents’ properties “Securing the building towards the outside and securing residents’ properties was the primary aim”, Remo Breuss explains, EVVA’s head of sales in Switzerland. “Exclusively authorised persons must have access to medical areas. Xesar can record a precise protocol showing who has access to what and when. The ICS mechanical locking system has also been integrated. "The vast number of different user groups was a particular challenge. The project also required plenty of expertise to comply with the requirements for an escape route concept as per statutory stipulations. The combination of electronic and mechanical locking system was the ideal solution for Alterszentrum Lindenpark.” EVVA technology in the facility 502 ICS cylinders 415 Xesar combi keys 21 e-half cylinders 56 e-escutcheons 162 e-handles 14 wall readers 1 updater unit

More than 200 students in various secondary school types receive tuition and training on their way to becoming high-performance athletes. The secondary school in Vösendorf, south of Vienna, is due to open its doors in September 2014. An educational institution requires a flexible security system. Xesar – the ideal solution EVVA Partner Wehrhan TPS Sicherheitstechnik was one of the first Certified Partners (CP) and the company boasts a comprehensive level of expertise. After having completed partner training, Harald Blauensteiner and his team had been ideally prepared to equip 68 door types with the electronic Xesar solutions and 20 additional doors with the mechanical EPS system. Wehrhan used the executive architect’s plans as the basis to identify all escape and emergency routes and get to work. "Xesar was the ideal solution, the system visually matches the overall image, the school is very modern with sophisticated design featuring stainless steel and subtle red tones", Blauensteiner explains. An additional reason to opt for this system was Mifare DESfire technology. This encryption standard meets very strict security standards and provides ideal protection. It also offers different additional functions, such as time sheets or card payments at vending machines as well as in the canteen. All these functions can help save vast amounts of time during the busy school schedule. The chip’s speed saves additional time. Doors open promptly following authorisation, an important property for users. The school management additionally points out that Xesar is the ideal security solution. "Access from both sides is particularly important in areas where boys must use separate facilities from girls. Xesar also meets this requirement", Blauensteiner continues. Security demands of a school Burglaries in schools are a relatively rare occurrence. In schools, it’s more about losing keys or identification media. Questions arise, such as "how do I handle lost chips?" "How flexible is the system in the event that I would like to add new identification media?" These are all questions EVVA-CP Wehrhan TPS clarified with the school to provide the best solution for the customer. Maximum security technology performance.

The idea for the Solar Decathlon originates in the USA. Since 2002, the competition has been bringing together universities from around the world with the objective of designing and operating an energy-efficient, solar-powered house. The aim is to support solar technologies in buildings. Each year the competition is hosted alternately in Europe and America. In summer 2014, it was held in Paris Versailles for the first time. Twenty pavilions that had been designed by teams of students from 16 nations were made accessible to the public at the "Cité du Soleil". The pavilions were assessed in ten categories by a panel of judges. This year was the first time a Swiss university took part in the renowned competition. The Team Lucerne Suisse faced up to the challenge with the your+ project. The vision of the your+ project is "to strive to sharing resources and efficiently using spaces with our concept of sharing and exchanging. Our living concept involves shared rooms to create a platform for exchanging objects and making mobility more flexible."  "Smart" is the keyword With the "smart sharing" concept, your+ aims at providing more options on a smaller area thanks to an intelligent layout and use of domestic and working environments. The your+ prototype presented at Solar Decathlon Europe 2014 in Paris featured three room types, each with various application options. The three room types are linked by space+, a popular and communicative development tool with a host of potential applications. The prototype was equipped with a sophisticated energy concept which was incidentally also based on the principle of sharing. Innovative project, innovative partner EVVA is a Silver Partner of Solar Decathlon. The project team opted for the innovative AirKey locking system. AirKey turns smartphones and identification media into keys. The system is just as dynamic as customers’ needs and consequently, it ideally suits the your+ project. "We opted for the AirKey locking system because of its flexible programming options for identification media/key cards", Marcel Wyss – architecture student and Student Team Leader explains. The particularly flexible AirKey solutions requires nothing more than a mobile phone or identification media with NFC functionality, the Internet and an AirKey cylinder. Keys are sent online. The AirKey app and the unique EVVA KeyCredits make this smart locking system a user-friendly, comprehensive solution. "Most of all the option to also directly grant authorisations to rooms using the AirKey app sparked a very positive response", Wyss continues. The Solar Decathlon 2014 concluded in mid-July. your+ ranked in an impressive 5th position. The team received particular praise in the following categories: convenience, communication, easy use, architecture and innovative light design.
