Action24 ensure security for IPC House

Providing state-of-the-art security system for landmark commercial building

IPC House is a multi-tenant, landmark office block on Shelbourne Road in Ballsbridge, Dublin. This new build development sought a comprehensive security solution that would ensure seamless operations and blend with the modern architecture of the building. Action24 were commissioned to provide an Intruder System, CCTV and Access Control.

Security Requirement

  • The client wanted to install a state of the art security system with the capability of being centrally controlled using the latest technology for this new multi-tenant office building on Shelbourne Road.
  • After a thorough assessment of the building’s needs, Action24 evaluated the necessary technology required to carry out the project.
  • Hikvision and Vanderbilt were selected as suppliers for their advanced systems. A good fit for the client’s security requirement.
  • All of the systems chosen have smart technology to allow remote operation via the systems portal and or App.

System Solution

Action24 chose Vanderbilts ACT Enterprise Pro as the software platform to manage the systems. Over sixty Bluetooth enabled card readers were installed throughout the building. ACT 1500 IP door controllers were selected as the backbone of the system. The security systems are integrated through ACT Enterprise giving the client one point of control for all their security systems. 

  • CCTV – 90+ 4Mpx Cameras
  • Access Control – 60+ Access controlled Doors
  • Intruder Alarm – 90+ Detection devices around the building
  • IP Video Intercom – Multiple door entry points with Induction loops for hard of hearing

Access Control Improvements

  • Bluetooth Readers are a secure and flexible identification solution to allow bringing the access credential to Android™ and iOS® smartphones.
  • Bluetooth® Low Energy is transforming the future of access control and removes the need for a physical card.
  • Mobile Credential use is on the rise and removes the burden of keys, cards or a lock and key while embracing the power of smartphone technology.

Looking Forward

The successful deployment of the new solution allows the client to monitor activity around the building from a centralized platform and to easily expand the coverage to gain better visibility if and when required. At the same time, we can provide users at each location with custom access permissions to view and manage their own areas.

The implementation of these systems by Action24 provided the client with modernised surveillance capabilities and enhanced functionalities. IPC House now stands equipped to safeguard assets and operations effectively. It is a dynamic system that can evolve with changing circumstance and/or requirement.
