Urmet provides security at former foreign missionary college

Residents and visitors benefit from Urmet’s digital video door entry panels, which communicate with touchscreen iModo monitors inside the apartments. The Power over Ethernet (PoE) external panels are Urmet’s Elekta Glass units, housed in a design that has minimal visual impact on the building. 

IPervoice has been installed across the whole location, with its server connected to a dedicated LAN that routes all communication between the external and internal devices supplied by Urmet. This has produced cost-savings for the property management client and is also a ‘green’ approach. The iModo monitors make no dedicated cable infrastructure demands and are simply integrated with general network cable. 

Access control is managed by Urmet’s PC-based concierge switchboard software, with an intuitive wizard simplifying day-to-day operation. Residents at St Joseph’s Gate use proximity key fob tokens with car-owners also using RF cards. The site manager operating the switchboard is presented with simple screen menu options to search for, add, delete and suspend tokens, as well as to generate reports when required.  

Urmet worked closely with the installation company to create bespoke pedestrian and vehicle posts for the entry panels, with the posts finished in a black powder coat to achieve the unobtrusive visual effect desired by the client. 

Mark Hagger, Urmet’s sales and marketing director, said: ‘An unusual feature of this project is that all of the entry panels at St Joseph’s Place are post-mounted. The building dates from Victorian times and is in the Jacobean style. This meant that the visual appeal of the exterior could not be compromised. We have successfully delivered numerous projects for the Berkeley Group previously, although mainly for new-build projects. Consequently, this restoration project was both interesting and challenging. It’s certainly one that we are proud to have been involved in.’
