Urmet Domus, a specialist security and telecommunications equipment manufacturer, provided its access control solution for the NEO Bankside development in London, which is poised to become one of the most desirable residential addresses in the world.
Set next to Tate Modern and close to the iconic Millennium Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral, NEO offers an opportunity to live at the very heart of London's cultural quarter.
NEO completes and compliments its riverside location. The development's hexagonal pavilions have been arranged to provide residents with maximum daylight. Its distinctive exterior reflects the district's industrial heritage. Private, landscaped gardens have been designed to integrate with their wider surroundings, enabling the creation of significant, new green spaces. A series of tree-lined routes will provide public access to Tate Modern and the Thames during the day.
Urmet's access control makes it easy to adapt to the changes demanded by a development such as NEO has, with IP video door entry panels controlling perimeter access. The IP entrance panels can communicate with the concierge or directly with the apartments. Residents will gain entry to various access points within the blocks using IP readers connected to the network. Hand-free monitors provide communications with the communal entrance panels and the concierge.
