Accrington and Rossendale College

Accrington and Rossendale College prevents expensive false alarms using COREBOX®

Date: 16/11/2011

Accrington and Rossendale College are saving money using 4i Security’s innovative COREBOX® solution.

When the college underwent a £16 million refurbishment project, the building desperately needed its outdated security system replacing.

The system had proved to be unreliable, with false alarms occurring on a weekly basis.

After a number of false alarms, the college had lost its police response – putting both the site and security staff at risk.

4i Security installed the innovative COREBOX® solution – with an intruder and access control system, integrated on one platform, across three buildings.

The top priority was to provide a safe and secure environment for staff and students - particularly after hours when the college is vulnerable to intruders.

Previously, there was no lock down service for after hours.

The size of the campus meant the security guards could not monitor all activity to and from the buildings.

COREBOX® resolved this by providing integrated access control functionality to manage after hours’ activity.

COREBOX® also provided an enhanced level of access control using existing ID swipe cards and thumb print verification to ensure only authorised personnel could access the campus.

This combination prevents unauthorised access, even if a swipe card was lost or stolen.

Additional COREBOX® features included Internet control of the system, alarm notifications, monitored emergency lighting control, temperature monitoring and flood control.

Haydn Gordon, Facilities Manager of Accrington and Rossendale College, said: “We selected 4i Security to install our integrated intruder and access control system because they were the only installation company that fully understood all our needs.”

“They had the technological expertise and experience to deliver a solution that met all of our requirements and then some.”
Matthew Brough, Head of IT and Technology at 4i Security, said: “COREBOX® is an innovative security and health & safety solution.

“It takes away the headache of managing multiple standalone systems - such as burglar alarm, access control, fire alarm, health & safety compliance, time management, lone worker, CCTV systems and more - by providing you with one fully integrated, automatic package.”

COREBOX® constantly monitors and resolves issues automatically, and you are always made aware of any potential problems or unresolved issues.

The system does everything for you, eliminating forgetfulness, increasing efficiency, saving you time and money while increasing security and profitability.

Matthew said: “Best of all, you don’t need to buy the whole system - just the health & safety solutions you need.”
