It’s All in the Design Details
Select components of MiMa system were designed to serve dual purposes with the additional benefit of cost reduction. Examples include door contacts serving both access control and intrusion alarm functions, and video surveillance cameras and access card readers at the exterior of the building operating in unison to enhance perimeter security.
The solution also includes innovative features that were expressed as ‘what ifs’ by the client then brought to reality by ESCC’s technical team. For example, at YOTEL N.Y. the intercom panic buttons connects customers directly to the security desk. And at MiMa, security and concierge personnel are able to control the entire system through touchscreen monitors.
To ensure the project averted any major hiccups, ESCC personnel worked closely with the end user, general contractors and electricians to provide onsite knowledge and decision-making proficiency. The integrator dedicated field technicians, project managers and IT specialists specifically so that the entire undertaking could progress as flawlessly as possible.
In designing the systems, ease of use for the end customer and its employees was top of mind for ESCC. To that end, touchscreen interfaces were selected and the integrator extended comprehensive training sessions to building staff. ESCC’s meticulous and creative design resulted in system front-ends that are clean and intuitive, while the back-ends are complex yet organized to satisfy all necessary and requested functions.
“The dual-installation of MiMa and YOTEL New York exemplifies ESCC’s ability to handle any and all projects presented to us,” says Karl Tyson, director of operations. “Working hand-in-hand with our client, we designed an integrated system that fulfills their current needs yet provides the capacity for future expansion and enhancements.”
Sure enough, the delighted client has contracted with the integrator for additional work and is also passing along the good word to colleagues. Bravo, ESCC, bravo.
