Comelit’s Award-winning IP Door Entry System chosen for Battersea Power Station development

29 Jun 2017

Residents at one of the UK’s most iconic and keenly sought-after developments – Circus West at Battersea Power Station in London – are using a state-of-the-art IP video entry system from Comelit. With designs that are both aesthetically stylish and technically sophisticated, it is little wonder that the new development has attracted attention from potential purchasers from all over the world. The door entry system from Comelit selected to provide access to the site offers the cutting-edge design and ease of installation that perfectly mirrors the expectations of the aspirational clientele who will soon call the Battersea Power Station development home.

Phase 1 of the ground-breaking development comprises of 865 apartments at the Circus West site and features Comelit’s IP-enabled ViP entry system that resides on a shared network. The apartments are fitted with ICONA monitors, while more than 50 entrances are equipped with a mixture of 3one6 Sense flush-mounted panels, Vandalcom digital panels and Vandalcom single button panels. User-friendly help points have also been fitted in car parking areas to enable residents to communicate with the concierge/security office.

The ICONA monitors inside each apartment feature a 16:9 4.3-inch colour screen with capacitive, touchscreen and swipe activation. Available in flush-mounted, wall-mounted and desktop versions, these concave-shaped, satin-finished monitors have high acoustic fidelity, while the monitors sport clean and elegant styling in scratch-resistant polycarbonate and brushed metal edges, complementing the contemporary and striking design of the apartment interiors.

Award-winning entry panels The 3one6 entrance panels comprise a contemporary, intuitive and highly customisable solution. They feature an LCD graphic display, housed in 4mm mirror-finish or brushed steel, and concealed loudspeaker. Winner of several design awards, 3one6 Sense was the first entrance panel to use capacitive technology.

Harnessing the benefits of IP technology, the ViP system is integrated into the development’s shared network, enhancing the performance of video communications. The network itself, supplied by Skanska Konnect, incorporates the site’s access control system, as well as the Comelit video entry system, which comprises over 900 devices. Being IP-based, the system has no distance limitations and can provide an unlimited number of users with simultaneous video and audio communications.

The on-site concierge is able to manage calls made from call points to apartments, and can also directly call individual apartments. Residents are also able to contact the concierge via the intercom directory on their ICONA monitors, and can communicate with the other apartments via the same directory, which can be programmed by the installer on request.

Circus West … and the rest
Due to open this summer, Circus West is going to be one of London’s newest residential sites, located between the historic Power Station itself and the 200-acre Battersea Park. As well as the apartments situated within eight blocks, the development will feature a select range of independent shops, restaurants and cafes at Circus West Village. Residents will also have access to private gardens and a residents’ club with a bar, private dining area, library and screening room.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have been chosen to take part in this iconic and exceptional project,” said Francesca Boeris, Comelit’s Managing Director. “With our emphasis on cuttingedge product design and aesthetics, we are proud to be associated with a development which showcases some of the best designers in the world.”
