Planning and installation
Thanks to the system’s openness, we do not need to take every single detail into account in advance. That greatly reduces the time and effort.
Siedle Access makes many items simply superfluous. For example, long conversations with customers to find out exactly what they want. In the past, that was essential to prevent planning errors. But with Access, the standard response to customer requests is “yes”. The range of the system is the same as that of the network – the limits are very wide indeed. The same applies to the number of users or entrances. They are almost unlimited and can be extended at any time, even retrospectively. Intimate knowledge of the building structure is also not required for planning with Access since the system is both scalable and flexible. Even if the main parameters change, for example the number of users or the required visitor frequency, the topology of the Access system remains the same. Audio, video, client software or connection to a telecommunications system?
Simply plan the structured cabling and network sockets and the rest takes care of itself. You already have a network? Great – in many cases Siedle Access can simply be installed in existing structures.
What qualifications are required to plan an Access system? Very good knowledge of the network – and very little specific Siedle
Siedle Access not only uses the protocols from the IP world, its infrastructure and installation material consist almost exclusively of standard network equipment. The only exception is the connection between the controller and door station. Apart from this, the entire installation can be produced, tested and approved using the same network equipment found in many other applications, from the computer world and building automation to media control. Even the indoor call stations are installed using conventional network sockets. That means that any installer who is familiar with networks can also install an Access system.
And we also have a solution for cases where standard planning is not quite enough – if the network socket is positioned towards the bottom of the wall, a special surfacemounting version of the indoor stations can be connected to it using a patch cable. Or the customer may decide that he prefers the elegant table-top version.
