PowerSeries Neo Delivers Around-the-Clock Security for Millworks Custom Manufacturing

Learn how PowerSeries Neo overcomes tough installation challenges to meet the evolving needs of a Toronto furniture manufacturer

Challenge

Millworks Custom Manufacturing needed to secure its 140,000 square foot facility, but the building shape, steel construction, and expansion plans ruled out a traditional security system.

Solution

Millworks Custom Manufacturing and All Seasons Security chose Tyco Security Products’ DSC PowerSeries Neo; a scalable, hybrid wired-wireless intrusion system with PowerG technology.

Ever Noticed How You Need the Newest Technologies to Service the Oldest Buildings?

The irony isn’t lost on us, either.

For many years, the 90-year-old 1898 Wycliff Condominium complex in Atlanta relied on inexpensive, standalone smoke detectors. But recently, residents of the three-floor brick complex became worried about the risk of fire, prompting the search for a new solution for the building’s common areas.

WyCliff Condo

That’s when it became clear that the brick exterior walls and concrete interior walls, and the old, unsuitable wiring in the walls and ceilings, would make installing a hardwired system extremely challenging and costly.

Protex Security Systems, a local systems integrator, recommended a modern system that would elegantly blend into the ornate decor with no need to open up walls: Tyco Security Product’s hybrid PowerSeries Neo intrusion system. The combined wired and wireless alarm system easily covers the large common areas, providing reliable detection and transmission of fire alarm signals without compromising the historic nature of the multi-unit residence.

Read the full case study about the special features of their choice, and why they were necessary to maintain the building’s Southern charms and keep the residents safe.

Case Study: DSC’S POWERSERIES NEO PAIRED WITH ALARM.COM PACKS A POWERFUL PUNCH FOR TRAVIS UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT IN CALIFORNIA

Read how PowerSeries Neo handles a complex employment roster and associated security for a number of school buildings for the Travis Unified School District in Vacaville and Fairfield, Calif.:

The Challenges

The Travis Unified School District in California,  includes five elementary schools, two of which are within the perimeter of Travis Air Force Base, a middle school, comprehensive high school, alternative high school and a community day school. The constantly –changing roster  implies many time-consuming processes each time a single person was added.

School

Being able to remotely monitor alarm activity was high on the district’s wishlist to cut down on physical check-ups on sounding alarms to determine whether they were real or false, The district also desired to be able to control their security system through a single easy-to-use interface. Another challenge to both personnel time and the school’s budget was the maintenance required on the individual door sensors. Insufficient battery life required batteries to be changed out every two or three years on the alarmed doors. Additionally, the school district was under a mandate to eliminate phone landlines as its alarm system
backbone.

Solution

Working in concert with its integrator, Alarmtech in Vacaville, California, the Travis Unified School District selected DSC’s scalable PowerSeries Neo hybrid solution to cater to the complexities which their campuses presented. Combined with a user-friendly online management system and Alarm.com’s intuitive app, Travis Unified School District were able to cut down on valuable time and money formerly spent on managing and maintaining the system.

Benefits

  • Most reliable communication over a multiple-site set-up

  • An easy-to-use administrative tool to handle high volume of personnel-related changes

  •  Control of the system through a single easy –to-use interface with Real-time monitoring

  • Reduced maintenance costs
