HVA Foods Access Control

HVA Foods Access Control

HVA Foods, which is renowned for their prestigious achievements in the Tea Industry and their brand of tea known as Heladiv commissioned IDawn Technologies to install an Access Control System for the R&D Department and Accounts Department of the offices situated in Hendala.

With respect to this installation, IDawn Technologies recommends that the Realand ZD2F20 Access Control Unit (ACU) be installed with Bolt Type locking mechanism being placed to secure the doors, which has a holding capacity of up to 250lbs. On the outside of the departments, a key switch was provided as a failsafe, while on the inside a break glass call point was installed for permanent emergency door release in case of a fire or other life threatening situation. A normal exit switch was also placed on the inside for normal operation of the door.

A separate Power Supply with a built in battery backup was put into place to power both the ACU and the Door Lock, with the Door Lock being controlled directly from the Power Supply so that a failure in the ACU will not cause the lock to release.

In addition to the ACU, Door Lock, Power Supply, and Failsafe/Emergency Equipment, as a special offer for HVA Foods, we installed and configured two essential safety and security devices Free of Charge. Firstly we put in place a Magnetic Door Sensor, and an Alarm Buzzer, where the Alarm Buzzer will normally be used as a Door Bell (which is also controlled from the ACU). In a situation where the door is opened illegally (e.g. using the failsafe switch or the emergency switch) the Alarm will sound indefinitely until the door is closed again. In a situation where the door is opened legally, but is kept open for longer than the allowed time period, the alarm will sound again until the door is closed properly.

To make the entire system comprehensive and integrated we provided HVA Foods our Time and Attendance Systems (available in Full Color, and Black and White) which can be monitored and used for report generation using the same software that is used by our ACUs. Integrating the Access Control, and the Time and Attendance Systems together can serve to give a better idea of your staff and visitor movements around the premises.

All reporting and online Data Management is contingent on the availability of a network connection near each ACU and Time and Attendance Unit, which was supplied by HVA Foods in order for the solution go online.
