cleave point apartmentsMul-T-Lock UK’s innovative Smartair access control system has been fitted to enhance security at the desirable Cleave Point Apartments, for the benefit of residents and management.

Cleave Point in Barnstaple, constructed by the Newland Homes Builders and owned by Cleave Point Management Company Limited, offers an exclusive purpose-built development of 24 stylish apartments, situated in the valley of the River Taw.

However, access to the premises was becoming increasingly difficult to restrict to residents with the existing locking system, and conscious of offering the highest level of security, property owners contacted local Mul-T-Lock specialist Keyhole Surgery to recommend a cost effective solution.

Keyhole Surgery suggested the installation of Mul-T-Lock Smartair electronic handle system as an all in one high performance stylish security solution that could provide instant access control.

The Directors at Cleave Point Management Company Limited said: “Smartair appealed to us because of its design and would complement the property’s security. Its ability to operate as a standalone solution was also a great feature as no hardwiring or modification to the door was required.

“Smartair was installed with no disruption and residents have found it really easy to use. From a management perspective, access for maintenance staff is equally simple to grant or deny, saving us valuable time and resource that we can now utilise to further enhance our property and offerings.”

A battery-powered unit, Smartair is a cost effective standalone solution that is easily installed to existing locks and key systems, reducing the inconvenience of hardwiring a full access control system.

David Pearcy of Keyhole Surgery added: “When the Directors contacted me to recommend a security solution, I had no hesitation in suggesting Smartair because of its adaptability to suit any accommodation and offer instant access control. Its features make it a simple and intelligent way of upgrading the controllability and security level of any premises, whilst also solving key management issues, without compromising on aesthetics or style.

With Smartair installed and programmed, cards or fobs can be easily added, amended or removed with an optional shadow card to enable users to delete operators one-by–one, in a change of home ownership.

Ian Thresher, Mul-T-Lock Regional Sales Manager concluded: “Smartair was specifically designed to overcome many of the obstacles traditionally associated with access control systems, as an intelligent device with ease of use at the heart of its design. When this is combined with its stylish finish and ease to install, programme and use, it is obvious to see why it is the perfect solution for property developments such as Cleave Point apartments.”

CCTV Van_01Security just where it is needed – Together with the company Securitas, Dallmeier has developed a surveillance concept in which vans have been fitted with the very latest in video security equipment. Many of these versatile CCTV vans are already on the roads throughout the UK and Ireland, in the service of the popular retailer Marks & Spencer as well as other operators.

The deterrent effect of video surveillance is indisputable: Many potential offenders are discouraged by a clearly visible video system, so illegal activities can often be prevented before they are even committed. If an incident should take place, however, CCTV systems can be used to provide an accurate reconstruction of the sequence of events and to identify the individuals involved. But suitable mounting sites are not always available at the locations where video systems are needed. Or it is not worthwhile to set up a permanent installation because the need for heightened security only exists at certain times. Now there is a perfect solution for precisely these situations: CCTV vans. These vans can be deployed flexibly for use at precisely the time and place where they are needed. Dallmeier and Securitas have developed and successfully implemented this concept together.

Flexible surveillance unit

Each CCTV van is equipped with four high definition dome cameras, which are mounted on the four sides of the van. The vehicles also carry a mobile PTZ camera mounted on a hydraulic mast that can be extended to a height of 15 m. The PTZ camera is equipped with a 20x optical zoom, enabling more distant objects to be observed in detail as well.

The images from the cameras are recorded on a VideoNetBox, which is built into the van with minimum space requirement. The PTZ cameras can be controlled via a laptop running management software from Dallmeier, which also allows live images and recordings to be analysed conveniently inside the van itself. Remote analysis can also be carried out from anywhere in the UK or Ireland via a 3G network. And sequences of interest can also be downloaded remotely. In this respect, the PRemote-HD function – a routine developed by Dallmeier with which HDTV streams can be displayed even with low bandwidths – is very useful.

The capability of analysing via iPhone or iPad, made possible by the “Dallmeier Mobile Video Center” iPhone app, affords even greater mobility and flexibility. Special transcoding is used to optimise the image data for the iPhone and at the same time ensure a high frame rate. The app includes the intuitive operation typical for iPhones, including multitouch zoom. The individual cameras are displayed in a list with preview images for maximum viewing efficiency.

CCTV Van_02Ingenious concept

The CCTV vans stand ready to be deployed anywhere in the UK within 12 hours. And it is not only the video equipment that is state-of-the-art; the van itself is a masterpiece of design engineering.

If anyone approaches the CCTV van, an alert is sent automatically to a control centre, so the security personnel immediately receives a general view of the situation and can call a watchman on site if necessary. Even the question of power supply has been solved inventively: The battery has a service life of five days, so the van is particularly well suited for use in locations where an external power supply is not available. The battery begins recharging automatically as soon as the vehicle’s engine is switched on. Of course, it can be charged with normal mains power as well.

Multiple deployment scenarios

Whether as a versatile extension for a permanently installed video system or as a standalone system, the CCTV vans have already proven their value in many situations. At concerts or demonstrations, in car parks or to prevent the theft of copper from railway and power supply facilities: the CCTV vans serve as an effective deterrent and provide invaluable help in the investigation of incidents.

The retail chain Marks & Spencer also relies on this flexible technology to protect its property from break-ins and shoplifting, as confirmed by David Watson, the Glasgow Branch Manager for Securitas: “Here, the van was particularly effective in the car parks. And we have already received a follow-up order for more vans with the Dallmeier equipment installed.”

Neurorehabilitation robotsOpengear aiding scientists’ work with stroke patients by providing instant out-of-band access to dispersed robots

Opengear, a leading provider of critical infrastructure management solutions through advanced console servers, remote management, monitoring, and cellular out-of-band products, today announced that Interactive Motion Technologies has successfully deployed Opengear’s remote management gateways to each of its internationally-located InMotion neurorehabilitation robots. Using Opengear’s solution, Interactive Motion has been able to perform remote maintenance of robots in hospitals all over the world from the company’s headquarters in Boston.

The results of using Opengear’s cellular-connected remote management have been transformative: service calls can now be completed from the Boston office, and minor robot updates no longer require a tech to travel and be on-site, rendering what had been huge cost and time expenditures associated with travel for minor updates unnecessary. Interactive Motion is currently investigating additional opportunities to integrate Opengear’s solution as a part of their product.

Interactive Motion selected the Opengear ACM5004-G-E for maintaining the systems of InMotion robots worldwide via secure cellular out-of-band connections. InMotion robots have been at use in hospitals around the world for over a decade, with some models still running on legacy versions of Ubuntu or Red Hat Linux. These systems are not on the Internet or even local Ethernets, are out of date with security patches, and cannot be connected to hospital networks. Because the connection Opengear uses is not Internet-based but done via cellular out-of-band – and because Opengear’s gateway provides secure tunneling – the security of the older systems in use is protected. Additionally, the value added by a low cost gateway and $20/month cell service means Opengear’s solution easily pays for itself by saving technician time and travel costs.

“It’s exciting to see Opengear technology deployed in a way that not only saves a business time and money, but also gets to play a role in helping rehabilitate stroke patients via the extraordinary InMotion robot,” said Todd Rychecky, VP Sales Americas, Opengear. “On the business side, the trouble and costs of traveling internationally for trivial maintenance issues are exactly the kind of burden our cellular out-of-band gateways with secure tunneling are designed to solve. All Interactive Motion had to do was ship the gateways with instructions to plug them in. Now, the ACM5004-G-E makes it so their technicians can access the robots from home, and they’re doing nine out of every ten service calls with no travel required.”

InMotion robot-assisted therapy helps moderate to severe stroke patients reacquire and improve motor skills in impaired upper limbs. Leveraging the brain’s incredible neuroplasticity, an InMotion robot will guide a patient’s arm through a range of motions, assisting the movements as needed. These motions cause the brain to rewire its neurons, and relearn how to control the body. The robot takes the patient’s own movements as feedback, tapering off its assistance as the patient’s brain learns and regains motor control. In this way, InMotion robots take patients from an utterly passive role to an active role, so that by the end of therapy the robot is adding zero assistance.

In the practice of ensuring that these robots stayed fully functional, maintenance issues would arise. Hard drives would fail, or researchers would ask for new customized features. To maintain these systems, technicians would travel out to the sites. In some cases, this meant a $5,000+ expense and overseas travel to delete a single character in a code string: a simple three-minute job if they had remote access. Now with Opengear, they do.

“We call the Opengear product ‘a @#$*ing miracle!’” said Dr. Daniel M. Drucker, Scientist at Interactive Motion. “It feels like magic. The idea that I have this robot I’ve helped to make, and I expected I’d never be able to connect to again unless I traveled to where it is and typed on the console; suddenly I’m able to take this box, ship it and have them plug it in. And now I’m here in Boston, type a couple commands, and a minute later I’m connected and able to issue commands on this robot. And it’s going over the global cell network.”

For Interactive Motion and the hospitals and patients using their robots, Opengear’s remote management solution improves operational efficiency and reduces mean time to repair. Rapid robot repairs mean patients are not left waiting. Researchers asking for special experiments and features can have those delivered quickly and remotely. Technical staff can better invest their time where it’s most valuable: developing technology to serve patients.

ASSA ABLOY Partners with SyntegroA new, upgraded version of Syntegro’s SynGuard system incorporates Aperio®, CLIQ®, and Hi-O™, leading access control technologies from ASSA ABLOY. SynGuard is now able to manage doors with different types of ASSA ABLOY locking system within a single, 100% web-based software platform.

SynGuard’s Aperio® integration incorporates the latest online and offline wireless escutcheons, cylinders, and locks from the Aperio® range. Online access is enabled by ASSA ABLOY’s 1-to-8 Aperio® hub (RS485 or IP), an IP-hub managed by a SynApp IP-Controller which can manage up to 32 Aperio® devices or a combination of 16 Aperio® devices and 64 doors.

Where battery-powered locks are not practical, ASSA ABLOY’s eCLIQ keys and locking cylinders offer another wireless solution. Lock power is provided by a battery in every eCLIQ key, not inside the lock itself: eCLIQ keys incorporate high-security 128 AES encryption, and contain no mechanical coding. Security managers control the update of access rights via a wall-mounted or mobile device connected to the SynGuard system software.

Wired access control is provided by ASSA ABLOY’s Hi-O™ product range, a long-term, intelligent door locking solution designed for customers with high security requirements. Hi-O™ integration enables connected doors to share encrypted information via ISO-standard CAN data communication with the SynGuard software. Components available from launch include solenoid and motor locks, exit buttons, door pumps, and badge readers.

“Thanks to ASSA ABLOY’s integration with Syntegro, SynGuard customers will be able to manage multiple ASSA ABLOY access control technologies within one application,” says Piet van den Bossche, Aperio® Business Unit Manager at ASSA ABLOY Belgium. “In particular, our Aperio® wireless access products can extend the reach of access control much farther into a facility, and at an affordable price.”

“Close cooperation with ASSA ABLOY, and integration of their access control products in SynGuard software, offers genuinely customized solutions,” says Werner Schraepen, Business Development at Syntegro. “All these lock systems can be managed from the same SynGuard software platform, created with open development tools.”

keynoteAccording to Closed Circuit Television, a new Market Update from business intelligence provider Key Note, the UK closed-circuit television (CCTV) market grew in value by 3.1% in 2012 and 5.8% in 2013. Key Note anticipates growth was driven by economic recovery and increased business confidence which has been fuelling demand for updated equipment and parts.

New construction activity and business investment levels are strong indicators of demand for CCTV systems, as it provides major opportunities for CCTV businesses. Government figures show that construction output in the UK increased by 1.6% in 2013, while business investment in the UK decreased by 1% in the same year.

Last year, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) announced radical measures to reduce the recurrence of abuse and neglect in British care homes by allowing the installation of hidden CCTV cameras. A leading care home provider, HC-One, became the first care home in the UK to install CCTV cameras in its care facilities. It is highly likely that CCTV in care homes will become more common in coming years.

Key Note forecasts the UK CCTV market will increase further in 2014, by 3.8%.
