Integration with Access Control
WLS has implemented various integrations to enable the client to achieve maximum benefit from the respective systems’ functionality. The fire alarm system, for example, has been integrated with the access control system and this allows all doors to be automatically unlocked in the event of fire to ensure no one is trapped inside the building. To avoid nuisance alarms, the fire system has also been integrated with the DDA system, so that the latter will only be activated when there is a fire alarm event.
WLS has also integrated the fire alarm system with various building services such as the lifts, air conditioning, toilet vents and the mechanical control panels, to help facilitate an extensive cause and effect strategy.
Two-way interaction between the access control and intercom systems provides smooth, seamless use of the doors no matter which of the two systems is used to gain entry, whilst thanks to the integration of the access control and intruder alarm systems, unauthorised users are prevented from entering the building unless the intruder alarm is unset.
