Salvation Army - TLJ & AI Security work together to provide access control solution
TLJ's stand alone key card locks have proven to be a great success at Booth House in Whitechapel, London. TLJ worked closely with the Essex based company AI Security throughout the duration of the project; from the initial site survey, during the installation and training and continue to do so throughout the ongoing after sales support.
The site houses over 220 residents and has various zones and areas within the building. The requirement was for a cost effective access control solution which would provide a high level of security whilst being easy to use. The system needed to accommodate medium/high levels of traffic for staff, residents and management. Hard wiring access control readers to each door was not a feasible option and combination locks would not fulfil security requirements. The TLJ access control system allows key card entry without wires and is managed from a central PC.
A selection of products were installed including; TLJ Infinity key card locks on the individual bedroom doors and TLJ access control readers on cluster doors and sliding entrance doors. AI Security installed the full system over a 1 week period having received prior training from a TLJ engineer. Each lock was commissioned once fitted to the door enabling the whole project to run smoothly and the property to remain fully open.
TLJ's Technical Director, Luke Martin said "Our trade account allows the access control companies and locksmiths to make a margin on the system with the added option of installing it themselves, or utilising the TLJ installation team. The TLJ Infinity locks offer all the advantages of a hard wired access control system but without the cost, mess and complication of wires or wifi hubs. Cards are issued centrally, audit logs of entry are maintained, lost cards can be cancelled and time/date restrictions on access are flexible."
