Lambeth Living, the South London housing association manages 29,000 homes on behalf of Lambeth Council. It has had door entries replaced at Amesbury and Durrington towers on the Westbury estate in SW8. Both buildings, 160 flats, have had ISM’s Ultimate 3000 audio and video telephone fitted by Harlow based installer, SCCI Alphatrack. After many years of use, the old system was deemed non-serviceable, as spare parts were no longer available. Renewal was the only option for the housing association to keep operational and maintenance costs down. Both towers can be configured as a single exchange, but it is also possible to network them using Genesys, ISM’s patented control room management software. The firms say that the housing association can reduce in manpower on-site, and integrate CCTV, digital recording, fire and intruder alarms.

The door entry product firm says that is was able to reduce installation costs by making bespoke chassis that could be fitted into the decoder boxes on each landing. Video door entry phones, available with a concierge call button, were replaced in each flat using Cat5e cable. At the entrance to each building, Ultimate 3000 digital vandal-resistant panels were installed. Grant Jenkins, Sales Engineer at ISM, said: “We’ve built up an enviable track record over 25 years of installing this type of system into large residential buildings for many local authorities in London.”
