Critical doors under constant surveillance
July 2018, Access Control & Identity Management, Retail (Industry)

The Mall of Switzerland, located in Ebikon in Lucerne, has a total floor space of 65 000 mN. It is the second largest shopping centre in Switzerland. Visitors to this ultramodern building complex can take advantage of about 90 stores, 18 restaurants, a multiplex cinema with 12 auditoriums, a large indoor playground and multiple exercise facilities.

The Mall of Switzerland receives up to five million visitors a year. This poses considerable challenges for building security, for which it is relying on Bosch’s experience and expertise. “These days, trends and customer needs change faster than ever before. Buildings have to be able to adapt easily – although this, of course, also poses new challenges, for instance with regard to security,” explains Jan Wengeler, who manages the mall. “But with Bosch as our partner, we know that we can handle whatever comes up.”

For the Mall of Switzerland, Bosch’s building experts implemented a tailored security solution for controlling access to restricted areas. At its core is the Matrix access control system, which features a combination of electronic cylinders and door fittings, plus readers, terminals, controllers and software. A management system with a customised user interface visualises the states of more than 100 doors to let staff quickly and easily monitor and control them.

This significantly enhances the safety and security of guests and personnel, also in complex situations with large crowds. The operators are now facing the future with confidence, since additional parts of the Mall of Switzerland can be quickly and flexibly integrated in the overall system as required.
