Maxxess eFusion plays central site management role at Dubai’s landmark Bluewaters Island

30 May 2019

Full integration enabled across security, safety and site management systems

Maxxess eFusion technology is being used to provide seamless integration and easy management of security, safety and site management systems at Bluewaters Island, Dubai.

The region’s newest tourism hotspot, Bluewaters opened in November 2018 and is expected to attract more than 3 million visitors every year. 

The USD$1.6bn project was completed by Meraas Holdings over five years and comprises four luxury residential complexes, a landmark Caesars Palace hotel, a shopping mall and the world’s largest observation wheel, Ain Dubai, as its centrepiece.

Bluewaters’ management wanted to find the most efficient way to integrate all security, safety and building management functions into one easy operating system, with particular emphasis on a solution that would be efficient to use, inexpensive to maintain and robust going forwards.

Following a sector comparison Maxxess eFusion technology was identified as providing the best fit.The eFusion security management platform was chosen instead of a more costly or complex conventional PSIM solution, because it uses versatile, open-technology software.  

Omnix International, one of the leading integrators brought in for the project, says eFusion proved particularly straightforward to work with, offering the advantages of a modular, building block approach and allowing maximum freedom to integrate, customise and adapt to future needs.

“Thanks to its compatibility with leading surveillance, intruder, access and fire detection systems, eFusion proved to be a highly efficient integration technology for the Bluewater project,” says Mr Henry Azoury, Senior Security Design and Engineering Manager at Omnix International. 

The eFusion platform at Bluewaters includes full integration with an ASSA ABLOY Hospitality system. It allows a unified system approach, with a single enrolment protocol for both front- and back-of-house access. The solution enables centralised management of room safes, mini-bars and cupboards, and for control of all alarm transactions.

eFusion integration with the Zenitel Stentofon IP Intercom System ensures that video and transaction data is called-up automatically in the Bluewaters control room as soon as any user press a call button. For maximum efficiency, the system allows the operator to unlock doors and communicate with the user remotely, with full activity logs kept for audit.

With easy integration to the SeeTec Video Management System, eFusion also allows seamless control of all cameras. In addition, cameras are linked to the door access system, with video pop-up triggered by predefined events. The solution also gives the operators complete PTZ control, playback and video functionality.

ID badging and building management systems are also fully integrated, allowing easy operation and control of a wide range of functions including heating, ventilation and air conditioning.

“For maximum efficiency there is no need to switch between different management systems and the eFusion platform is easy to work with, allowing full benefit from integration with individual systems,” says Lee Copland, Managing Director EMEA, Maxxess.

“The eFusion platform is based on technology that delivers robust, reliable performance, as well as being fully scalable as needs change the future.

“We look forward to our continued work with Omnix International, which is providing the world-class specialist engineering services combined with local, customised support that customers value.”
