Smartair brings simplicity & reliability to Geneva care home

London, UK

Because Smartair puts ease of operation at the heart of its design, even vulnerable and non-technical users at Notre-Dame can work the new access control system without any difficulty.

Round-the-clock resident care is an essential part of a retirement home’s remit. It demands an access control system which responds in an instant to resident needs or unexpected incidents. At Les Résidences Notre-Dame in Geneva, Smartair wireless electronic access control from Assa Abloy delivers just that.

Smartair addresses all the needs of both Notre-Dame management and its residents, because it supports complex, individually tailored authorisations, every site user has access only to the appropriate areas. Varied user profiles including staff, residents and visiting families are all easily accommodated. So, while trained medical staff can enter all rooms, as well as areas where medical supplies are kept, for example, a resident’s credential will only open the door to their own room and the home’s common areas.

Access rights can be programmed, amended or deleted remotely and immediately — a function that’s particularly helpful when keycards or other Smartair credentials like fobs and wristbands are lost. Instant reprogramming also enables care staff to address resident needs and to resolve incidents right away.

Notre-Dame staff and residents also appreciated the ease with which Smartair wireless technology is installed. Residents experienced minimal disruption to their daily routines. No special wiring is required, as new Smartair escutcheons were mounted directly onto the existing mechanical locks.

As well as the wireless locks, the system comes with wireless communications hubs and user-friendly Smartair software to set up and run the access control system wirelessly. Smartair wireless cylinders, wall entry keypads, PIN pad-equipped escutcheons, cabinet locks, energy saving devices, and safes are also available.

And because Smartair puts ease of operation at the heart of its design, even vulnerable and non-technical users at Notre-Dame can work the new access control system without any difficulty.

There is no access control trade-off between simplicity and security. With Smartair wireless locks, residential care homes can have both.

Dahua Technology launches ePoE IP system

Dahua Technology Co., Ltd. is launching a system of extended Power over Ethernet (ePoE) devices including cameras, network switches and network recorders. Dahua ePoE IP system supports up to 800 metres between the ePoE camera and the ePoE network switch or ePoE NVR with an embedded switch. It overcomes the limitations of traditional Ethernet and POE (both restrict cable distances to around 100 metres (328 feet) between network ports) and eliminates the need for Ethernet extension devices or additional network switches.

The future is here - when surveillance meets AI

What will the world be like when surveillance meets AI (Analytics Intelligence)?

According to an IHS report from September 2016, security camera shipments continue to grow at 14.1% CAGR and are predicted to reach 190 million units in 2020, despite revenue growth having slowed to 8.1% CAGR. There are just too many cameras and video footage to be digested by human operators. Most security video footage is erased or over-written without being watched. Video Analytics (VA) Technology was once perceived as a solution to automate the utilisation of abundant video footage resources. By means of identifying and tagging the appearance of certain patterns in a video, the VA or AI system could perform search and run statistics on it.
