Comelit Upgrades Door Entry at Luxury Residential Development
Comelit recently upgraded the door entry systems at the luxury Collection Place development to ensure residents can respond to requests via mobile technology - but without compromising the aesthetics of the building. Based in the district of St John’s Wood, Collection Place is a high specification portered development comprising 14 luxury apartments.
Home automation and integration specialists Advanced Integration invited Comelit to present custom door entry systems, as part of a security upgrade programme of works. Specification included bespoke brass video flush panels with video monitors and smart capability to manage from a mobile, incorporating full links to dedicated 24-hour concierge services.
“Every element of our development, set in heart of our beautiful St John’s Wood, was created to present residents with a high-end luxury lifestyle, from specification to security and privacy. We are always looking for best ways to maintain and futureproof this expectation," says Kem Rashica, Estate Manager of The Collection Management Limited and Harrods Estates Asset Management. “Advanced Integration highlighted the opportunity to present smart door entry systems and recommended Comelit, as a brand renowned for delivering on design and style without compromising on technology or security. The installation was seamless and residents are now delighted to be able to manage their home from the convenience of their mobile.”
Maria Tsiftis, Chief Operating Officer at Advanced Integration added: “When it came to upgrade the door entry, we wanted to incorporate a visual, smart capability, without affecting the style or ambience on site. Being a residential development, we also had to be conscious of any works programme not causing disruption to daily lives. Comelit responded with a bespoke specification, including high end entrance panels, monitors with video capability and concierge systems, enabling a combination of door entry and messaging. Being involved from the design stages ensured a smooth delivery and beautiful custom finish befitting to this luxury development.”
Comelit designed the door entry systems for Collection Place to operate through its innovative ViP system, which offers a powerful all-encompassing opportunity for residents to receive video intercom calls on a smartphone.
“St John’s Wood is one of London’s most upmarket residential locations, and Collection Place has been established in the elegant villa style housing that is synonymous with the area," concluded Sam Arnold, Business Development Manager at Comelit UK. “Any enhancements to door entry had to be delivered to complement this lavish attention on detail, but also serve discerning homeowners who want the advantages of service and latest technology.
By working closely with Advanced Integration, we have delivered a sleek and functional, smart security solution to accommodate these requirements.”
