ievo have provided their fingerprint readers for RamCo Electrical Ltd, based at St Georges House. RamCo Electrical Ltd has expanded with a range of disciplines from fire & security to multimedia applications to become a one stop wiring shop for domestic, industrial and commercial clients.
The previous access system consisted of a card based access control system. The system needed replacing for several reasons including the lack of a computer based server set up. This meant that the recording of access events was via printout only. With the vast number of daily events within the building the storage of the printouts was a significant problem. The new ievo® system involved 12 ievo micros used internally and two of the more robust ievo ultimate readers used externally. The readers were installed at three points across the building; at the server, at the main reception desk and within a tenants suite.
Through a custom designed lift interface board the ievo micros were integrated within the lift cars allowing users access only to the floors where they worked. The user enters the lift and selects the floor they wish to gain access to. Before the lift can operate the user is required to place their finger on the ievo® reader to confirm their access rights. Once the reader has authorised the print the user is then taken only to the floor they are permitted to access.
