Tasked with the installation of the life safety systems along with the other integrated security 

Working with Leadbitter created a secure and safe environment for both the residents and staff alike.  Our integrated systems include the fire alarm, with call and text reporting to the Dect handsets the staff carry, that will alert them if a resident requests assistance using the Nurse call system and also if there is an activation of the fire alarm system.  The site perimeter was covered using CCTV and access control to protect both people and property.

All the apartment doors where fitted with Salto Access Control as where all the main entrance doors giving total security. Integrated into all the rooms, communal areas and offices where telecoms and data services, that offer a "hotel" system to allow internal calls to be made free of charge and a "dial 9" system for all residents with call charges monitored by Extra Care.  

Also installed is a video door entry system that can be viewed by each resident when their house number is pressed along with intercom this ensures that only the people who are welcome in the building can get into the building
