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
Bon Securs Hospital, Galway, has integrated the SALTO XS4 Locker Lock into the drug and medicine cabinets used within a new build extension to the hospital to control when and by whom patient medication can be accessed.Bon Secours Hospital Galway is a 120 bed acute care facility, providing a wide range of surgical and medical services. It is part of the Bon Secours Health System, the largest private healthcare provider in Ireland, and currently admits 18,000 patients per annum, comprising 6,000 in-patients and 12,000 day-cases. A substantial expansion plan has seen 50 new Patient Bedrooms, a Physiotherapy Department, a new Restaurant and enhanced Laboratory, Medical Stores and Office Accommodation added to the hospital.“The XS4 Locker lock is designed to provide a high level of security protection and is ideal for use with drug and medicine cabinets as well as for more general use with hospital staff lockers” said Stephen Foley from Doorware, SALTO’s Irish distributor who carried out the installation at the hospital. “We’ve installed 32 drug and medicine cabinets with the new electronic locks and these now ensure that only authorised, accredited medical staff can access the drugs and medicines contained within them. Every time the cabinets are opened the event is automatically logged via their audit trail facility (the lock continuously records the last 1,000 operations in its memory) giving hospital management a useful security record.”XS4 Locker has been designed to offer the latest in state-of-the-art electronic access control technology in a low cost simple retro-fit format to solve the problem that most lockers, including those routinely used by hospitals, are supplied with very basic mechanical locks that usually offer little in the way of resistance to thieves. It can be fitted to most cupboards and cabinets to control access to any drugs, medicines or other equipment stored on site and upgrading from an existing mechanical lock is quick and easy. The old lock is removed and the XS4 Locker simply fitted in its place. No wiring is required, power is supplied by 3 AAA or optional lithium batteries good for 30,000 openings, and its exterior dimensions are a compact 54mm x 105mm x 28mm ensuring a neat fit and professional appearance. The access reader is built into the locking handle and the ID carrier - key card, wristband, key fob or bracelet – is simply presented to the reader and XS4 Locker will grant or deny access, providing an intelligent solution for high performance locker security in hospitals in a versatile easy to fit package.
