Securing a Residential Development in Essex

Company News, Front-of-House/Security, Vertical Markets, EMEA, Residential
CCTV and access control specialist Delta Security has further enhanced security at a private residential development in Woodford, Essex, following the installation of a new security system which includes audio-visual access control and aluminium security doors.


The access control solution serves 30 apartments and comprises Videx door entry functionality and an Intratone cloud-based fob key system. Each resident now has an LCD video screen connected to their handset allowing them to see and hear who is attempting access. The system has been extended to include both the front and back trade entrances providing additional convenience for residents accepting supermarket and online deliveries. 


The highly-secure Intratone key fob system provides each resident with access to both entrances, with fobs distributed to individuals and fully explained to residents prior to installation. Management is able to programme fobs on site using the software provided, updating access as and when required.


Craig Tranfield, resident board member, responsible for the project says the fob system is ideal for a development of this type:


“Previously keys were given to residents’ family members and there was no way to manage the number of keys distributed or cancel a key if it went missing. As each fob is coded we are able to cancel any that are lost, and indeed re-programme them if they turn up! This system allows us to allocate access to additional doors for those with a responsibility for both blocks. It is a wonderful system – highly secure, easy-to-use and with numerous useful features.”


Also installed are new external, aluminium security doors that were chosen for their robust durability and light-weight, yet highly-secure build structure, as well as their suitability for the premises which is in a conservation area.


Craig adds that installation went well: “Delta Security liaised well with residents and feedback was positive. Dave Mundy, the Operations Director at Delta Security, was on site on numerous occasions answering questions and ensuring the project went as smoothly as possible.”


Sharron Brandelli, Associate Director Property Management at Strettons, the company that manages the development, says the project was a significant investment, and undertaken to ensure a high-quality, long-lasting security system was in place to meet residents’ needs:


“Security has been significantly enhanced, providing peace of mind for residents, families and management. Delta Security and its engineers have provided an excellent service and a secure, easy-to-use and convenient system that works well for all stakeholders.”
