Five new products from Castel at IFSEC 2019
Castel has been working with many technology partners over the past year - such as CCure, Victor, Milestone, Genetec, Wavestore and FLIR - to provide seamless and integrated solutions across a wide range of third-party products and systems. This has led to a series of new products being developed and launched at IFSEC International 2019 in London (stand IF2526, next to 'The Park').
A new intercom with integrated Bluetooth reader, an award-winning emergency notification system and new refuge call points will be among an array of solutions from Castel on show at this year's IFSEC International.
Castel's new intercom has a built-in Bluetooth reader providing a secure way of gaining access, and it's available on the new generation of Xellip full IP/SIP audio video intercoms. The user-friendly design allows you to open doors from a distance and manage the credentials of users more efficiently - all from a smartphone or tablet.
The Smart Tamat emergency notification server acts as the nerve centre of an alarm notification, mass notification, nurse call or lone worker monitoring system. It delivers immediate and relevant notifications to security personnel and first responders, providing two-way communication and helping to generate co-ordinated responses to emergencies.
The new vandal-resistant, stainless steel intercom for refuge areas features two-way communications, an illuminated call button, three LEDs to help comply with disability legislation and an integrated induction loop.
Castel's custodial stainless steel master station features an anti-ligature design (it can be re-cessed into the wall), anti-tamper components and is vandal-resistant. It also integrates with surveillance cameras around a building and features an additional display for video verification.
Finally, a new two-way video intercom features an outdoor display for extra clarity even in bright daylight, enabling the use of sign language and helping to comply with disability legislation.
"We are thrilled to be unveiling some exciting new products at this year's IFSEC International," said Atmane Bensghir, Business Development Manager for Castel UK and Ireland. "The depth and breadth of our product range - and the harnessing of current technology such as IP communication and Bluetooth - demonstrates the growing importance of two-way audio and video in an increasing number of applications, and shows that Castel is much more than an intercom manufacturer."
