Security Requirement

  • Following renovation of their HQ, Mercury had the requirement for a new CCTV and Access Control System that could be managed locally or via a web based application. 
  • The client wanted to install a state of the art security system with the capability of being centrally controlled using the latest technology and also be remotely monitored from a monitoring station.
  • Action24 offered a comprehensive solution that would ensure seamless safety & security operations across multiple buildings.

System Solution

After a thorough assessment of the building’s needs, Action24 recognised the complexity of the task at hand and selected Vanderbilt and Hikvision systems as the solution to address these challenges. 

The project tasks undertaken:

  • Decommissioned and removed the legacy system
  • Installed the ACT Enterprise Pro software and hardware using Mifare card readers (allowing cards to be used for multiple applications)
  • Set up satellite buildings using ACT and HIK system – this is managed from Mercury HQ
  • Upgraded the CCTV from an old Analog system to a Hikvision IP system with 4 Mpx Camera with Video Analytics and Remote Audio Challenge 

Action24 chose Vanderbilts ACT Enterprise Pro as the software platform to manage the systems. Over 32 Mifare card readers were installed throughout the main 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 – 50+ 4Mpx Cameras
  • Access Control – 32+ Access Controlled Doors
  • Intruder Alarm – Multiple Satellite Buildings

Looking Forward

Ultimately, Action24’s implementation of these systems provided the client with modernised surveillance capabilities and enhanced functionalities. They now stand equipped to safeguard their assets and operations effectively, both today and into the future.

The successful deployment of this new solution allows the client to monitor activity around their buildings from a centralized platform and also to easily expand the coverage to gain better visibility if and when required.

This was a satisfying project for our team as Mercury are recognised as a leading Irish company with exacting standards. We continue to provide ongoing maintenance of this system and have recently upgraded other Mercury buildings to bring them inline with this system.
