Boon Edam Australia Business Development Manager Darren Assey at the 2019 Security And Government Expo

Boon Edam showcases the future of entrance security technologies at Security And Government Expo

Boon Edam’s combination of architectural elegance and functionality has drawn the attention of the Government sector at this year’s Security And Government Expo (SAGE) in Canberra. Boon Edam – which is a global leader with more than 140 years’ experience in entrance security and architectural revolving door technologies – showcased its latest technologies, including speedgates with integrated lift destination and facial recognition. They were among a complete suite of security technologies contained in architecturally harmonious formats used by Fortune 500 companies, Government organisations, legislatures and data institutions globally. “The Government sector is constantly looking at ways to enhance security, so that they can protect valuable data and assets, as well as meet their duty of care obligations for staff and visitors to their building,” said Boon Edam Business Development Manager Darren Assey, who was on-hand at the SAGE show to discuss the latest developments and advances in the entrance security industry. Boon Edam and its dedicated ACT technology supply, installation and maintenance partner, have extensive Government sector experience, with local and international installations across all levels of government that elegantly combine top security with aesthetics that blend in with their surrounds. Boon Edam entrance security technologies used globally by Government organisations, Fortune 500 companies and household names include speedgates (Lifeline series shown left) and security revolving doors and portals (Tourlock 180+90 high security revolving door shown right) Government sector trends “Government organisations at SAGE had widely varying interests, depending on their security needs, but across all levels, access control was essential. The people I spoke to needed to ensure that they knew who was entering their buildings or facilities, for the safety of people, data and assets inside,” said Mr Assey. “As we look toward 2020, Government organisations are keeping a keen eye on cost-effective technologies that enhance security, efficiency and provide new advances that work reliably in service.” “Boon Edam’s service commitment, where we aim to provide a level of after-sales service and support previously unmatched locally, was very well received by the Government sector. They need to know that any company they do business with can back their product and provide swift assistance, service and maintenance.” Lift destination partnership with Schindler “Our new lift destination partnership with Schindler port technology drew particular interest from forward-thinking organisations looking to improve efficiency, control traffic flow and ensure building security,” said Mr Assey. The new global partnership, known as ‘The Power of Two', delivers an integrated system that greatly enhances transit efficiency, especially in high rise buildings with multiple lifts, and including public and private facilities throughout the Asia-Pacific and Australasia.  Seamless integration of speed gates and lift destination helps manage people flow and minimise waiting times.  “The time between entering a speed gate and reaching the lift (typically 5-10 seconds) can now be utilised to call the correct elevator, using Schindler’s industry leading destination algorithm. Security is enhanced throughout the entire process, with Boon Edam Speedlane Lifeline speed gates preventing unauthorised personnel entering a waiting lift,” said Mr Assey. “One result of this more efficient entry system is that traffic congestion is decreased by up to 50%, which can make a considerable difference in medium to high rise buildings where large numbers of people are transiting through the building each day,” he said. “The new partnership has considerable benefits to customers throughout Australasia, by combining the best technologies from leaders in their individual fields and making them readily available from one source.” Specifiers, architects, builders, refurbishers and security specialists will now have access to the harmonised technologies through the national and global networks of both organisations.” Facial recognition “The other trend already creating a buzz in the industry is facial recognition. Facial recognition itself has been around for a while, but its meaningful integration into entrance security technologies is something that Boon Edam has given a lot of focus in recent times,” said Mr Assey. “Unlike early forms of facial recognition paired with speedgates, Boon Edam has integrated the facial recognition camera into the top-plate of the gate, meaning that it doesn’t create a visual eyesore, and can’t be bumped or knocked out of position like cameras mounted on top of a gate,” he said.   The latest Boon Edam Lifeline speed gates have the ability to integrate most quality facial recognition camera technologies under the top-plate of the cabinet. Not only is this sleeker in design, with the camera ‘hidden’ from view, but it also prevents the camera from being knocked out of  alignment – a common issue with cameras mounted on top of a speed gate. “Additionally, our technology is ‘agnostic’, meaning it will work with most quality facial recognition cameras, and the user isn’t locked in to one technology for future years. With the rapid advance of facial recognition technologies, this is a major asset for organisations considering integrating this technology into their security entrances.   For more information, please contact: Boon Edam AustraliaDarren Assey - Business Development Manager T +61 (0)426 703 326E darren.assey@boonedam.com

Boon Edam Keeps Going with More Features Added to the Lifeline Speedlane Swing

Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V announced the release of multiple upgrades to their top-selling Lifeline Speedlane Swing security speed gate. The new features include a Sound Module, Top Mount and Universal Elevator Destination Display. Ever-Evolving Optimised Security Solutions The end of 2018 saw the addition of the Lifeline Boost access control pedestal to the sleek and intuitive series of speed gates, followed earlier this year by the integration of Schindler’s PORT 4 mini transit intelligence solution into the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. Mark de Jong, Senior Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "As much as we have been successful with the Lifeline series since its launch in 2015, it is important for us to continue developing the product series in order for us to satisfy our customer’s needs. These new features will allow for us to improve not only the functionality of the product but also introduce new integration possibilities to the market." Sound Module – Security Breach Awareness Sound detection is an excellent deterrent for unauthorised visitors. It is easily monitored remotely through a security system, manned by professional security personnel. With the latest upgrade of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing, an audible alarm has been introduced alongside the existing visible alarms to increase awareness of a breach in security. The sound module has five audio scenarios - each with three sounds and adjustable volume settings – providing freedom of choice and flexibility.   Top Mount Universal Access Control Stand With technology never standing still, it is important that your chosen security access solution keeps up with the trends and be able to facilitate new technologies in access control, without incurring large additional costs. The Top Mount is a universal stand that can be mounted on top of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing cabinet unit. It can accommodate a variety of access control systems and can be placed on either the secured or non-secured side. The Top Mount is an alternative to the recently launched Lifeline Boost access control pedestal, which is positioned independently in front of a lane cabinet, rather than the top mount which is mounted on the top of a cabinet. Universal Elevator Destination Display Vertical urbanisation is a trend the world is watching closely and seeing unfold before our eyes as both commercial and residential growth goes upwards. The elevator is now expected to be secure as well as intelligent and provide an integral part of a security access solution. As demanded by the market, the universal elevator destination display is a new option available on the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. This option contains 8 LEDs to assign an elevator. These LEDs are externally controlled by the elevator manufacturer and their technology which is integrated with our feature. The universal display can show either numbers or letters and the display can be integrated into the top of the lane for standard lanes or lower down on the side of the cabinet for user-friendly disabled access. All these progressive features are available to order throughout the EMEA, the Americas and Asia regions. Visit Lifeline Speedlane Swing to learn more about the leading security speed gate.
