Biggest ever residential IP door-entry project
With privacy and security two key issues, LOCOG (London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralypmic Games) took possession of the 12 completed residential plots at the Olympic Athlete Village in April 2012. Main contractors for the project, Lend Lease, in conjunction with the Olympic Delivery Authority, appointed Urmet Domus UK back in 2009 to provide an IP-based platform for the door-entry systems at the village.
The system proposed by Urmet was IPervoice. All of the configuration details were taken from the installers before the IPervoice equipment was delivered. This meant the system could be built and programmed, all off-site. This off-site preparation was of great benefit to the individual contractors as there was airport-style security at the Olympic site. As a result, making sure the system was pre-configured and pre-tested beforehand made it less time-intensive for the installers as there was no need for them to keep going back and forth through security. Once installed, the network was then fully connected and switched on. Any cable faults were adjusted and the system was soon up and running, problem-free.
