Successful Trial Of Intratone Access Control Leads To Portfolio Roll Out

Latest News Fri, Apr 20, 2018 8:52 AM


A trial of Intratone access control systems at Network Homes’ sites across London has been so successful that it resulted in zero faults over two years.

Network Homes is an award-winning housing association with 20,000 homes across London, Hertfordshire and the South East. Proximity readers and fobs were installed by Delta Security in 319 apartments across 19 blocks in 2015; High Frequency (HF) receivers for car park access have also been trialled.

Paul Grady, Electrical Contract Manager and Neville Tucker, M&E Project Manager have managed the project to date. One of the principal objectives for installing the new system was to simplify key management, especially when granting access to contractors:

“Previously, staff had to escort all contractors on site which was very inconvenient. Now this can be managed remotely. The cloud-based fob-reader system has significantly enhanced control over who has access, for how long and to which properties. Changes made to key fobs are immediate and can be made from anywhere,” Paul says.

The new system also benefits the residents. If a user loses their fob, the operator is able to immediately establish its identity and disable it for future use. A new fob is subsequently activated and then despatched. Every time a fob is used the data is sent back to the remote operating platform, giving operators an overview of that particular gate or secured door’s activity. Any unusual activity is therefore easily identified and monitored.

“The Intratone system gives us complete control and visibility. It also means we don’t have to approach a third party whenever a resident has lost a fob, or someone moves out. We have been so impressed with the potential time and therefore cost savings that we have started a gradual roll out across all our sites,” Neville adds.

Daniel Bacon, UK Sales Manager at Intratone says the cloud-based fob reader system is ideal for multi-tenanted, managed properties: “The system provides best-in-class security, alongside flexibility and ease of use. We are extremely pleased that the installation is serving as a good example of how access control can make life easier for managers and residents alike.”

Network Homes is intending to use Intratone equipment on its new developments and as replacements for planned upgrade works to some of its 20,000 homes across London, Hertfordshire and the South East.

Intratone is one of Europe’s largest access controls specialists and manufactures a range of cost-effective door-entry and access control solutions designed around the customer need. Its systems are installed across a range of Housing Association, Social Housing and Private Properties throughout the UK and Europe.
