Adic installs top security solution at HQ
Abu Dhabi, January 10, 2013
Abu Dhabi Investment Council has installed the AC2000 SE (standard edition), an access control and integrated security management system, from UK’s CEM Systems at its Al Bahar Towers headquarters.
AC2000 SE was selected to secure the premises by CEM approved reseller, Tyco Fire & Security UAE, as part of their security solution which comprises of access control, CCTV, intercom, perimeter and physical security.
“Abu Dhabi Investment Council at Al Bahar Towers represents another prestigious win for CEM in the Middle East” said Philip Verner, regional sales director, EMEA, CEM Systems.
“CEM AC2000 is being used as the preferred security system for many large scale infrastructure and government projects throughout the Middle East where security is paramount.”
“CEM’s AC2000 proved the best solution for the Council because it is a feature rich system with the flexibility to be tailored and integrated to third party systems to meet the client’s requirements” said Craig Menzies, Tyco Fire & Security UAE.
The system secures both of the Al Bahar Towers, as well as the shared parking, ground and mezzanine levels.
A custom lift control interface was developed by CEM allowing identification and special access for VIP users requesting lift call. Lift cars are then assigned on a priority basis.
The system at Al Bahar Towers utilises powerful AC2000 software modules including AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display) which provides a real time graphical representation of events and alarms occurring throughout the system.
It also includes AC2000 VIPPS (visual imaging & pass production system) which allows the Council administrators to produce professional quality permanent and temporary ID passes.
AC2000 Failover has been used at Al Bahar Towers to create a system with a high level of redundancy. AC2000 Failover provides the ability to create and maintain a copy of the main AC2000 server. In the event that the main server fails, the AC2000 Failover server will immediately take over until such times as the main server is restored.
AC2000 SE is supported at Al Bahar Towers by CEM’s industry leading hardware.
The installation utilises the S610s card reader which offers intelligence at the door with an offline database for card validation even when communication with the host server is temporarily unavailable. – TradeArabia News Service
