Nedax awarded the access control system design to Gallagher, and incorporated
the newly emerging HBus reader communications technology to future-proof the installation.
Nedax trained the concierge at CQW to administer both the access control and CCTV systems for programming, reporting, and footage extraction. A long-term support contract is in place which provides software updates, and quarterly testing regimes.
Our work with Clyde Quay Wharf
JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF OUR INNOVATION
Clyde Quay Wharf Apartments was named Supreme Award Winner at the NZ Commercial Projects Award in 2015. This was a design, engineering, and construction masterpiece, which has proved to be a fantastic enhancement to the Wellington waterfront. It was created by LT McGuinness, Athfield Architects, and Dunning Thornton.
Nedax was delighted to be awarded the security contract by LT McGuinness. It specified an extensive system of access control, video intercoms, CCTV and related infrastructure, covering eight buildings. The Nedax design and procurement team created a bold and innovative new design philosophy. The project was also particularly demanding, as the process needed to allow for partial occupation as each block was completed.
Nedax awarded the access control system design to Gallagher, and incorporated the newly emerging HBus reader communications technology to future-proof the installation. Nedax also chose to implement separate controller and load power supplies, and backup facilities, to achieve 100% uptime. Other features included a solid-state low-voltage industrial site server, automated offsite backups, and VPN encrypted remote access. Dual cards were developed by Nedax to allow a single card-2 CHIP solution for Hafele DT700 (TAG-IT) apartment locks, and NXP DESFire EV2 Gallagher T11 series card readers.
Nedax collaborated with Setpoint Solutions, and incorporated 77 Wi-Fi tablets housed in custom wall-mounted support brackets. The tablets supported both video and speech, with remote-release facilities, and full lighting and AC/heating controls with BMS integration. External stations used DTMF web relays for both the front entry and lift releases. A solid-state SIP server was also designed and installed to allow flexible call routing.
A March Networks CCTV system was installed with over 80 IP cameras covering the complex. A specialised server array with DAS was incorporated, allowing for a 12-month online video archive. The server and storage arrays are fully backed up, and are capable of maintaining in excess of 24 hours run time in the event of a power failure.
The networking system developed by Nedax uses 23x16 channel rack-mounted POE switches, installed over 8 blocks with a fibre backbone. The switchgear equipment is powered by a dual-redundant 48VDC infrastructure with battery backup. This has proven to be environmentally sustainable with lower power usage and heat emissions, and reliability has reached the 100% threshold.
Nedax trained the concierge at CQW to administer both the access control and CCTV systems for programming, reporting, and footage extraction. A long-term support contract is in place which provides software updates, and quarterly testing regimes. The system has full reporting capability over IP, and monitors every aspect of the installation – including a host of BMS inputs.
