CEM Systems secures King Khalid University Hospital, Saudi Arabia.

CEM Systems, part of Tyco Security Products, announced that the CEM AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) security management system has been chosen to secure access to King Khalid University Hospital, Saudi Arabia. The contract was awarded to CEM Approved Reseller, Best InfoTech Solutions.

The dedicated university hospital opened in 1982 provides 800 patient beds, over 20 operating rooms and fully equipped/staffed laboratories. The university hospital contains a special outpatient building and provides primary/secondary care services for Saudi patients. The university prides itself on preparing excellent doctors for the future and believe education of medical students, interns and residents go hand­in-hand with patient care.

“The CEM AC2000 SE system was our first choice on this project”, said Marwan A. Khater, director of sales and marketing, Best InfoTech Solutions. “With it being installed in numerous facilities around the world, we knew it was a reliable and flexible system that would suit our customers’ need. CEM was very supportive throughout the project; no request was too much, allowing the project to run smoothly.”

“The CEM AC2000 SE system offers King Khalid University Hospital a powerful and fully integrated security management system that is an ideal solution where security is of paramount importance,” said Andrew Fulton, business development director for CEM products. “AC2000 SE software offers a collection of security applications that enhance security and customer operations including AC2000 AED (alarm event display) and AC2000 VIPPS (visual imaging and pass production system)”. King Khalid University Hospital has integrated the AC2000 SE system with a fire alarm system to control all hospital emergency exits. The integration will increase efficiency as it will release the doors automatically for evacuation.

AC2000 VIPPS will allow security personnel at the hospital to produce permanent and temporary ID Badges for medical staff, intern students, residents and other individuals who may access the building regularly. The hospital can then personalise these badges by including their own logo, background image and badge text fields.

AC2000 alarm event display (AED) module enables security to view a graphical and textual representation of the status of the entire AC2000 system. AED responds to all alarm situations in real-time, therefore if a door is forced at an access point such as the pharmacy, an alarm will trigger on the AED screen, allowing security to respond quickly to the event.

The AC2000 Access Levels application will also allow security personnel to link cardholders to access groups eg, resident doctors may be in a higher access group to first year medical students. Resident doctors may have access to certain areas, such as the pharmacy, that first year medical students or research students working in a laboratory will not.

The King Khalid University Hospital installation utilised CEM eDCM 300 (intelligent two-door controllers). The DCM 300 controllers are designed to interface third-party read heads with the AC2000 system and feature an internal database, which stores cardholder records at the door. This means that even if communication is temporarily lost between the DCM 300 controller and the AC2000 SE server, the controller will continue to validate cards ensuring a zero system downtime policy.
