CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, has announced that Honeydew Dairies has selected CEM’s AC2000 Lite security management system to secure its factory and warehousing facilities in Nottingham Road, KwaZulu-Natal. The system was supplied by CEM approved distributor, Mustek and installed by CEM installer Brandfin Trade.
Established in 1994, Honeydew Dairies has grown from a small dairy farm to a large dairy producer with depots throughout the region and a fleet of 80 transport vehicles.
“Brandfin immediately chose CEM access control as the best overall solution for the job,” said Alistair Mingay, MD, Brandfin Trade. “CEM’s AC2000 Lite system was selected by Brandfin as it not only offers integrated biometric security for staff and visitors, but also offers us the capability to integrate with future time and attendance systems.”
CEM AC2000 Lite system installed at Honeydew Dairies is supported using CEM’s S610f fingerprint reader. The reader has been installed at turnstiles on site to provide biometric access control at the pedestrian entrances to the site. The S610f is an intelligent IP card reader and offers three levels of security – card, PIN and biometric. As an integrated solution the S610f reader eliminates the need for a separate biometric system as fingerprint templates are captured at the same time as other cardholder details are enrolled on the AC2000 system. The S610f reader successfully provides multiple layers of access control at the factory.
“AC2000 Lite is an ideal solution for Honeydew Dairies,” said Andrew Fulton, director of global sales, CEM Systems. “Not only is it easy to install, it is affordable and provides a range of powerful software features and functionality such as ID badging and central alarm monitoring to enhance site operations on a daily basis.”
The system at Honeydew Dairies uses AC2000 software modules including CEM’s AC2000 VIPPS (Visual Imaging and Pass Production System), which allows factory security to produce colour coded passes and access rights for administrative, warehouse and factory staff as well as day visitors. AC2000 T&A (time and attendance) module has also been installed offering easy to read reports of employee IN and OUT times.
Using the AC2000 AED (Alarm Event Display) module, Honeydew Dairies management team has a graphical display showing all access control points and activity on the system. This real-time display alerts personnel when a controlled goods door is opened and allows them to critically stop unauthorised exit or entry.
Alongside the AC2000 system, Brandfin installed automated gates for vehicle access as well as various turnstiles to control access into the different zones of the factory. The vehicle access is also monitored by a mixture of PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) and fixed video cameras which integrate with the factory control room to allow or deny access to arriving vehicles.
The installation at Honeydew Dairies was carried out smoothly and efficiently by CEM Installer, Brandfin Trade. Brandfin Trade was selected to install the system because of its wealth of experience in supporting IT as well as cameras, access control, integration, and control room monitoring. Brandfin Trade was aided in the installation at Honeydew and have proven competency in the CEM AC2000 product range through certified training at the CEM head office.
