Boon Edam Keeps Going with More Features Added to the Lifeline Speedlane Swing

Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V announced the release of multiple upgrades to their top-selling Lifeline Speedlane Swing security speed gate. The new features include a Sound Module, Top Mount and Universal Elevator Destination Display. Ever-Evolving Optimised Security Solutions The end of 2018 saw the addition of the Lifeline Boost access control pedestal to the sleek and intuitive series of speed gates, followed earlier this year by the integration of Schindler’s PORT 4 mini transit intelligence solution into the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. Mark de Jong, Senior Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "As much as we have been successful with the Lifeline series since its launch in 2015, it is important for us to continue developing the product series in order for us to satisfy our customer’s needs. These new features will allow for us to improve not only the functionality of the product but also introduce new integration possibilities to the market." Sound Module – Security Breach Awareness Sound detection is an excellent deterrent for unauthorised visitors. It is easily monitored remotely through a security system, manned by professional security personnel. With the latest upgrade of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing, an audible alarm has been introduced alongside the existing visible alarms to increase awareness of a breach in security. The sound module has five audio scenarios - each with three sounds and adjustable volume settings – providing freedom of choice and flexibility.   Top Mount Universal Access Control Stand With technology never standing still, it is important that your chosen security access solution keeps up with the trends and be able to facilitate new technologies in access control, without incurring large additional costs. The Top Mount is a universal stand that can be mounted on top of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing cabinet unit. It can accommodate a variety of access control systems and can be placed on either the secured or non-secured side. The Top Mount is an alternative to the recently launched Lifeline Boost access control pedestal, which is positioned independently in front of a lane cabinet, rather than the top mount which is mounted on the top of a cabinet. Universal Elevator Destination Display Vertical urbanisation is a trend the world is watching closely and seeing unfold before our eyes as both commercial and residential growth goes upwards. The elevator is now expected to be secure as well as intelligent and provide an integral part of a security access solution. As demanded by the market, the universal elevator destination display is a new option available on the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. This option contains 8 LEDs to assign an elevator. These LEDs are externally controlled by the elevator manufacturer and their technology which is integrated with our feature. The universal display can show either numbers or letters and the display can be integrated into the top of the lane for standard lanes or lower down on the side of the cabinet for user-friendly disabled access. All these progressive features are available to order throughout the EMEA, the Americas and Asia regions. Visit Lifeline Speedlane Swing to learn more about the leading security speed gate.

The Power of Two

Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. and Schindler PORT Technology join forces to present a solution that elegantly combines speed gate security and transit intelligence.   Two Technologies. One Solution As a global leader of elevator destination control systems, Schindler’s PORT Technology has rapidly expanded its footprints into mobility solutions within buildings. The PORT Technology offers its users secure access and seamless journeys throughout an entire building. It, therefore, made perfect sense to combine PORT with Boon Edam’s leading and unique welcoming and secure entrances, creating one slim, attractive and cutting-edge solution that answers the needs of both: the secure and seamless efficient movement of people. Seamless and Secure Elevator Destination Control By integrating PORT into the speed gate, a visitor or resident can be quickly authorised via RFID card or the myPORT smartphone app whereby visitors can be granted access via a web-based colour code. Once authenticated, the PORT’s elevator dispatch algorithm instantaneously allocates the best possible elevator to the passenger. While the PORT device authenticates and guides the visitor or resident, Boon Edam’s Lifeline Speedlane Swing takes care of the entrance management. The Lifeline Speedlane Swing has been revolutionising the security industry since 2014 and is well-known as the slimmest, fully operational speed gate on the market. The speed gate has been developed with aesthetics in mind, and it’s smooth, premium glass casing houses intuitive-coloured LED lights which effortlessly glide along the tapered cabinet top to ease the visitors seamless through the check-point. Tailgating Detection with Style This product effectively detects tailgating, and the aesthetics can also be easily adjusted to either blend in or stand out, depending on the needs of the elevator lobby area. Jeroen Thuis, Group Business Development Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "We strongly feel that partnering with adjacent industries in today’s connected world is a must to continuously offer the best solutions to our customers. With combining the most sophisticated elevator control systems and the number one speed gate, Schindler’s PORT Technology and Boon Edam offer the best of both worlds in one - seamless integration of secure entry management and elevator destination control."

Flexible Security in Corporate Co-Working Spaces | Trend Report

With the rising trend of corporate office real estate moving towards shared working environments, it stands to reason that an effective security strategy needs to be developed in line with this pattern and ensure that the safety and security of everyone are catered for. Sharing is Caring Across the globe, big names such as WeWork and Spaces are well established, and many more can be seen popping up in all major cities. What we also see is not only freelancers and start-ups taking advantage of these places but also larger companies are now setting entire floors aside to allow for employees to encourage like-minded people to collaborate and innovate and breath a new lease on life into one company. The current thinking is for corporates to start to plan to incorporate co-working into part of their growth strategies – allowing people from all kinds of departments the choice to work on projects with others outside of their normal roles. In the Netherlands, we have seen a marked increase in this working space trend since 2008. During the economic crisis, many people were left without a fixed job and had to begin their own businesses as a way to survive. The above map graphic takes the statistics from CoWorker.com (https://www.coworker.com/search/netherlands) people registering their co-working spaces and clearly demonstrates the surge in this lifestyle and work choice within a relatively short time-frame. The concept of shared working spaces has evolved rapidly into what was once perceived to be a bit ‘new-age’to a booming industry where the demands are to have a secure, modern facility which is well-managed. These buildings are often in prime locations in the city and need to provide cutting-edge technology and amenities to retain the inhabitants Welcome Yet Secure The beauty of shared spaces is that people flexibly use them. They come and go without being on a schedule and need to have freedom of movement. The challenge for real estate owners is to ensure this freedom is not compromised by enforcing heavy security measures which would not only create the wrong image but could discourage use of these shared creation points. "WeWork has helped us expand by giving us a level of flexibility we'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere,” says McKenzie-Landelle, a member at WeWork 41 Corsham St. “We've gone from two to 16 people, and WeWork has had the perfect solution for every team size and problem we've thrown at them." A reliable infrastructure in these environments is one of the most fundamental demands and security is top of mind in today’s unstable political climate. Different people have different security needs so, as a building owner,  you need to consider who you are catering for and what their specific needs might be. Some groups like to have access to work 24 / 7 with no limitation to access of the shared facilities, while others like to have the flexibility to work between the shared space and home (and leave items safely behind). Not all Security is Equal A co-working ecosystem has many options to consider. Below are just a few (each with their own pros and cons): A manned reception desk to handle access passes and queries Access control on the main door connecting to a central security point Night-locking revolving doors High security revolving doors for a keyless approach CCTV Cameras Lockable storage cabinets or areas Smartphone access for convenience Sufficient lighting to give a sense of security to those working late Security speed lanes for seamless and attractive access in the reception area Building location – in a ‘good’ area Safe emergency egress and evacuation plan Secured and trusted Wifi such as VPN and guest Wifi for visitors / non-members A carefully thought-through visitor policy Maximising Security To optimise your security in these very public areas is critical. Having a modern, trusted security workspace management software which integrates with all of your products in all areas is the secret to success. People are demanding user-friendly access and want to have a hassle-free entry, billing, visitor management etc. It is important for your members to know they will be safe in the event of a fire, emergency or active shooter event as well as security within the walls of their chosen work environment. A layered approach to security is also an effective approach, starting with an access controlled security revolving door, which is designed to prevent piggybacking and tailgating security breaches and work independently of a security guard. Further in the ecosystem, you could install speed lanes and even a high security portal at the entrance to very sensitive areas where confidential collaboration needs to happen or where sensitive data is being stored. You could even look at lower forms of security such as tripod turnstiles or full height turnstiles if your building caters for outside spaces as well.
