ACT empowers NHS Trusts thanks to unified access control solutions

by Brian Sims

Executive Alarms has installed ACT’s access control equipment on more than 450 doors in a roll-out across multiple hospital sites in both Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire. The project covers facilities ranging from an £11 million centre for adolescents with mental health problems in Headington to a brand new adult unit in Aylesbury.

The Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and the Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust are using the latest version of ACT’s management software. Designated ACTenterprise, this is a role-based platform with functionality available to end users according to their specific needs.

The software is highly intuitive with the look and feel of a web browser experience. Full integration to ACT’s own VMS solution, ACTviquest, provides additional real-time security.

Executive Alarms and ACT created a role-specific database structure for the clients who were then able to populate it from their existing software without any re-keying. This is a feature of ACTenterprise that’s of great value to customers in terms of RoI.

The NHS Trusts are using ACT’s ACTproMIFARE1040 proximity readers. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation, they’re also IP67-rated.

This project boasts a flush-mounting option which reduces the potential for self-harm by ‘factoring out’ ligature points.

Readers are being used with door stations and controllers from the ACTpro range.
