Siemens has won a contract to provide a security solution at a prestigious development on one of the most prized pieces of real estate in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The solution is an integrated security management solution from Siemens that uses open architecture and protocols to bring together every aspect of security into a single homogeneous system. The system enables the complete interoperation of access control, video surveillance, intrusion detection, network video recording and other security sensing systems on a single platform. It is perfectly suited to deliver centralized risk management, security control and coordinated responses to evolving security needs on challenging sites all around the world.
This customer site is an exclusive residential and commercial development set amidst privately owned parkland. Planned to become an iconic development within Kuala Lumpur's prestigious city center, it includes several condominium towers, a serviced apartment building, a luxury hotel and office towers. There is a number of niche retail outlets around the development and a 1.5-acre landscaped park at its heart. Not surprisingly, the development is considered a high security risk because of the desirability and value of the properties and the lifestyle that residents and visitors will enjoy. The developer wanted a system that was expandable and future-proof and turned to Siemens as a manufacturer and systems integrator to provide it.
The contract involved Siemens Building Technologies Division supplying, installing and commissioning networked video surveillance, access control, integrated security access and visitor management systems. It also included the installation of elevator control, panic sirens, door status monitoring, vehicular access control and offline guard-tour systems. Most importantly, the sub-systems were all integrated by the Siemens integrated system.
