The fitness academy is Athboy’s latest training facility, offering a personalised approach to fitness and helping members to improve in areas such as nutrition, cardiovascular and strength and conditioning. Established in 2017, the fitness academy contacted SenSys Technology for help with their CCTV, VoIP, Wi-Fi, network and security setup.
Critical to the security and safety of the site, we proposed an Avigilon IP CCTV security system which was paired with Avigilon’s 2 Megapixel internal domes and for the external cameras we used Avigilon’s 2 Megapixel bullet cameras with onboard self-learning video analytics. The cameras are recording to a highly redundant Intel server with redundant power supplies, backup operating system hard drives and failover storage drives.
The external cameras with Avigilon’s onboard self-learning video analytics are covering the perimeter of the building and report back to a 24/7 monitoring station when intruders are detected in the regions of interest. Through the use of Avigilon’s advanced video analytics, false alarms are virtually eliminated and detection levels are highly accurate when intruders enter the site. Intruders are then deterred through live audio announcements made via an external audio speaker system which is linked to Avigilon control centre.
Access to the building by staff and members is critical so we proposed and implemented a Paxton IP access control system and a Paxton door entry system. This included a number of door controllers in the building which were networked back to the on-premise server where the Paxton Net2 software was installed.
The Paxton door entry system included a video intercom which was installed at the front reception and three Net2 entry monitors, located on the gym floor, reception and upstairs office. The video intercom calls through to each location when the front reception is unmanned and provides HD quality video to the monitor. Staff can then give access through a release button on the monitor. The intercom also has a built-in keypad to allow staff access to the building in the event of a lost key fob.
For the intruder alarm system, we proposed and installed a HKC hybrid system which allows the use of wired and wireless sensors and PIR’s.
The Fitness Academy is a place where network mobility is a must, with the use of tablets, smartphones and laptops, having internet access available through-out the building was a must. We proposed the use of a Sensys Technology own brand cloud managed WIFI system. With this system, we were able to provide high speed 802.11AC access points which are remotely managed from our secure cloud, giving us the ability to make changes to the system from a central dashboard anywhere in the world.
With all state of the art gyms and fitness centres, a high-quality audio system is required to give extra motivation to members when the going gets tough. We proposed and installed a high-quality Yamaha sound system which was broken up into three different zones. The system was paired with in ceiling speakers in the changing rooms, reception and upstairs offices and on the gym floor we recommended six wall mounted audio speakers which were matched with a professional grade audio balancing switch.
For the networking infrastructure, we proposed a Meraki security appliance to tie all of the systems together. This allowed us to converge our entire network systems together and to separate network traffic from the IP CCTV, staff LAN and also gave us the ability to implement quality of service which ensures the VOIP phone system takes priority on the network due to network latency. By separating the network traffic and implementing VLAN’s on the network switches, this ensures network performance is running highly efficiently.
