AEOS, Nedap’s access control system, has been granted an acceptance test certificate by Kone – a global leader in the lift and escalator industry. This is a big step forward for both security and access management, as AEOS can now be integrated with each of Kone’s six lift types.
Integration in action
The first project to benefit from this type of lift integration will be Three Snowhill in Birmingham in the UK. This new landmark has 18 stories and a floor space of 420,000 square feet. A high-end, multi-tenant new office building, it will sit in the heart of Birmingham’s financial district.
GBE Fire & Security has chosen Nedap Security Management to equip the building with AEOS, providing functionality including access control, lift destination control and vehicle identification. In total, 240 doors will be fitted with the AEOS software-based system, which was developed and built by Nedap.
Ross Bale, security specialist at Nedap Security management says: “Three Snowhill will become a busy hub with a high volume of local people working there and visitors coming from far and wide. We’re proud to make a significant contribution to the safety of everyone that will be using the building in the near future.”
The official opening of Three Snowhill is expected to be in March 2019.
