Liberty Life invests in IP-based Axis surveillance as well as building management solution
New KwaZulu Natal regional headquarters takes a serious approach to security
“We are very impressed with the quality of the installation and the phenomenal clarity of the camera images.“ Willem Visser, Property Risk manager, Liberty Properties.
The glorious, sun-kissed suburb of Umhlanga Ridge, north of Durban (South Africa), is home to Liberty Life’s plush new regional office. The 11,000 square meter building was designed and built with an emphasis on environmentally-friendly features and energy-saving technology, as part of Liberty’s commitment to the national Energy Efficiency Accord. Liberty Properties’ stringent security and building management system criteria necessitated the installation of a sophisticated, effective surveillance solution.
ML Technologies (Pty) Ltd, a company specializing in high tech network solutions, was awarded the security and building management installation tender issued by Liberty Properties. Various Axis network cameras were installed in strategic locations to maximize the efficiency of the system. ML Technologies was instrumental in designing a surveillance solution, using Axis network video products, as well as the Honeywell EBI solution which effortlessly meets the uncompromising security standards set by Liberty Properties.
The central control room, situated within the Liberty Life development, is able to maintain strict control over the movement of persons entering the premises, thereby reducing the security risks associated with modern day buildings. Axis network cameras are used to monitor vital areas throughout the building, while the EBI system is used to monitor and control equipment, such as extraction fans, standby generators and water levels, ensuring that swift action can be taken to avert possible incidents or malfunctions. All critical areas of this vast building can be accessed via the surveillance system, providing peace of mind for visitors and staff alike.
