A building for the future

Business center opens with Axis door controllers and cameras under an innovative concept to better accommodate new technological developments

“Encryption is important for system security, both for access control and for video surveillance. All Axis devices support encryption, a feature that isn’t available in an analog environment. The security in the solution’s details made the difference.” Lincoln Castelo, technical director of Beco-Castelo Construções.


Inspired by the most innovative property developments in the world, the A&A Philippi Business Center was designed to provide tenants with the latest in building management and monitoring technology. The developers of this 14,000 m² business center in Florianopolis sought to invest in systems and equipment that would remain up-to-date over the long term and enable integration with new systems and technologies as they emerge, enhancing its structure with cutting-edge developments.


In its design, Axis partner Unisec, as integrator, developed a strategic monitoring plan that covered all accesses and traffic areas in the condominium. Instead of presenting the customer with a proposal to install only the video surveillance system, Unisec offered a comprehensive solution that includes 42 fixed IP cameras operating in conjunction with ExacqVision Enterprise, a software package from Axis partner Exacq Technologies. The solution also employs 12 AXIS A1001 Network Door Controllers for use with Wolpac gates, and 20 HID card readers from HID, another Axis partner.


Everything went perfectly in Unisec’s first deployment of Axis access controllers. The integrator needed only one technician and two days to complete the wiring and installation for the 12 controllers and 20 card readers. The Axis door access controller made it easy to integrate components that are not usual in the market, such as the garage door. This controller also allowed a specific software to be created for the project, thanks to the ability to access the API and development material. Because the controllers are powered by a PoE switch (which requires less conduit and infrastructure, ensuring a more robust environment with more space availability), the customer was able to improve the finishes in the property.
