Working in partnership with Enterprise Security Technologies, Videx has successfully installed a complex door entry management system at Connaught House, which provides private residential housing and commercial office space right in the heart of London.

The key access control requirement was to provide a secure and easy-to-use system with 24-hour video door entry for visitors, affording a clear image of the person(s) arriving.

Talking about the installation, Ben Davies (South East sales manager at Videx) explained: “Most residents at Connaught House are internationally-based, some of them as far away as Saudi Arabia and India. They use their apartment as a London base, but mainly live elsewhere. Providing secure and convenient access control on site was a top priority for this project.”

Davies continued: “A key aspect of the project was to install a system that’s specifically designed to meet the client’s needs. A bespoke panel was created such that the old panel could be replaced using existing cables without any unnecessary expense or time spent on making alternations to the surrounding brickwork or repairing damage realised by a completely new installation.”

Enterprise Security Technologies recommended and installed Videx’s flagship VX2200 digital door entry system to ensure the security of the building as a whole.
