Verney House, Graceville

Verney House

Beth Eden is a residential aged care facility of 61 beds run by Bethany Christian Care. It has a heritage listed building ‘Verney House’ as its centerpiece which was built in the late 1880s and has several links to Brisbane history.

The facilities management wished to upgrade the controllability and security level of this premises through the implementation of a fully automated enterprise level access control system similar to that being successfully utilised at their other sites. The significant age and heritage listing of this building posed a particular challenge in the automation of the facilities doors and meant that a combination hard wired and wireless door system provided the most appropriate solution.

The Integriti Security Controller® with their Intelligent LAN Access Module® was integrated with Assa Abloy Aperio® wireless door systems via the Aperio Communication Hub®. The system was centrally managed by the Integriti Professional Software® application and ultimately accessible via a floating workstation connected to SkyTunnel®, a cloud based security system hardware connection service over the internet. Dual format cards were able to be provided to facilitate staff access across alternate Bethany Christian Care sites which run HID Prox format.
