Fully Integrated Access Control; IP Intercom; CCTV; Intruder and IP Network

Nedax who commenced operations in May 1987 are delighted to have designed a fully integrated system with levels of sophistication innovation and workmanship unmatched in the industry.

All design and installation was handled by Nedax staff headed by Cameron Phillips as Project Engineer and supported by Sunny Sandhu as site Technical lead manager.

Our ethos with Nedax was to design a system of unmatched reliability and about creating engineering solutions and enhancing the performance, productivity and durability of the overall system.
We are indebted to Wayne Scott local BDM for  Gallagher in providing the necessary equipment and software to support our quest to create this masterpiece.


Nedax were not inhibited by specification considerations. From the outset the Nedax aspiration was create a world leading system with innovation and quality not seen in the security marketplace utilising 48VDC instead of 230VAC to power rack equipment ; servers ; workstations ; routers ; monitor displays which excludes the requirement to have 230VAC outlets at monitoring locations ; safety requirements being that extra low voltage powered equipment are present at staff locations ; less power consumption and increased equipment life expectancy .

The Nedax management philosophy was from the outset establishing quality ; productivity and competitive position and consistently improve the system of production and service.

Nedax themes were that customers recognise that quality as an important attribute in products and services and recognise that quality as an important differentiator between their own offerings and those of our competitors.

Nedax call this Quality Differentiation .These themes are prevalent amongst Nedax staff and have become more significant including quality culture ; the importance of knowledge management and the role of leadership in promoting and achieving high quality.
