Security at a large medical practice

The increasing number of false alarms issued by the old wired alarm system - which used motion detectors to monitor just the interior of their large practice in Hamburg - prompted the medical team to install a new danger detection system. They chose a wireless system because of the great flexibility this provides. Following extensive measurement of the two-storey practice, the team decided to install the Secvest 2WAY system from ABUS. The easy-to-use codechip system won over the doctors and staff at the practice.

Challenge and solution

Problem-free functioning despite the large number of technical devices

  • Thanks to 48 wireless zones, a sufficient number of detectors can be trained in

Monitoring of the cooling of the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

  • A monitoring switch was connected with a Secvest wireless detector, which triggers a technical alarm which notifies the monitoring station via the wireless alarm panel if an emergency occurs
  • Use of a wireless water detector which monitors any leaks in the cooling unit

Easy and secure to operate
