Security Integration Case Studies

“Team Nedax always supply the best in workmanship and along with Gallagher systems the best result for our clients Projects...This looks another example of the great work that Tony and his Team produce.”

GM.Architects & Planners Ltd

Convention Centre (Takina) Wellington


Nedax were awarded the security contract to design and install a Fully Integrated Access Control; IP Intercom and CCTV system in February 2020 and  Nedax worked closely in a collaborated approach with the main contractor LT Mcguinness; WCC Takina Project Director and Willis Bond to provide a beautifully crafted and innovative solution with workmanship matching or exceeding recently completed contracts.

Our success relies heavily on a constant stream of communication between our team and our clients, always maintaining clear expectations and we strive for more with in depth analysis of design prior to implementation and post installation reviews.


Nedax designed and installed bespoke cabinets and trunking systems which were deployed in the eight communication rooms. Trunking systems were measured ; fabricated and test fitted for accuracy prior to being powder coated both on external and internal surfaces prior to final installation. Nedax engineers carried out a detailed volt-drop analysis of cable lengths and architecture due to the large building footprint Consequently a special run of 4mm high density copper cable was designed and purchased to ensure volt drop was within Nedax performance tolerances.

Nedax also reviewed fire door construction and advised on the most suitable locking devices that were compliant with egress requirements on fire escape pathways. Nedax reviewed the CCTV design and suggested a change from the specified Bosch system to a Hanwha Wisnet system that provided advanced features and included a high level interface to Gallagher which seamlessly integrated into the WCC sitewide Gallagher system. Cameras were stripped and housings were etched and powder coated black by Metal Immersions to match architectural requirements. Nedax worked closely with WCC IT and Omega Networks to provision Gallagher; Jacques Intercom and Milestone CCTV transparently into existing networks.

Nedax engineers worked closely with WCC Safe Cities staff and trained them on the integration of Milestone CCTV viewable within a Gallagher premier platform which allows user definable views; live viewing and recorded views. Additionally Milestone Smart client software was installed on operator workstations to allow export of recorded footage. Architectural Graphical plans were provided and loaded with alarm definitions and camera icons to provide advanced operator experiences with a primary focus on efficiency that encourages situational awareness and allows for a more accurate and timely Operator response.

Nedax introduced Gallagher Bluetooth Credentials to Takina; LTM; Te-Papa staff and contractors and managed the roll out with a special feature set to allow auto doors to have operating modes changed from auto; secure and hold open mode all from the BLE Gallagher app. Nedax engineers also created a design to remove all interface relays and timer interfaces from the auto door control system to maximise operational reliable runtime and negate corrosion issues and subsequent call outs. Additional modifications were suggested and installed by Nedax to the motorised autodoor locking methodology on exit routes to ensure guaranteed fail safe operation on fire alarm or Breakglass activation.
