Posted on Tuesday, December 10th, 2019 in Blog

Do you service schools & have you heard of the Nexus Lockdown System?

Recent OFSTED guidelines state the LOCKDOWN alert for schools must be distinctly different from the fire alert. We suggest contacting schools in your area for potential site surveys or system installations over the Christmas holiday period.

If the last school holiday period was anything to go by, there was a flurry of orders and schools organising site surveys before confirming installation of the Nexus lockdown system during the Christmas holidays.

If you would like further information on the Nexus range or any marketing material to help you promote this system, please email sales@qedgroup.co.uk or give us a call on 01772 336111.

Nexus Lockdown System

A Nexus system comprises call points with sounder / beacons and sounder / beacons only. The units have a range of up to 1km from each other. All units in range activate when one is triggered.

Many schools will require installation over the school holiday period so now is a perfect time to be speaking to them about NEXUS.

Wireless Innovations for Construction Site Security and Critical Alert

Posted on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 in Blog

Did you know, theft of construction equipment and machinery costs the construction industry over £800 million a year? Most sites have restricted power supply; therefore making the installation of a full CCTV system impossible.

The OCULi Wireless PIR Camera

OCULi wireless PIR cameras work with security guards to alert them of an event via PUSH notifications to their mobile phone. Superior VGA 640 x 480 colour video starts filming in just a few milliseconds after detection. Therefore, guards can decide on the required response. Improved monochrome night-time clarity is achieved using powerful IR LED lighting.

Two lithium D cells power the OCULi units, with an average life span of around 9-12 months. They are supplied with a non-network specific, EU roaming SIM. Tariffs start at £5.00 per month. Also, you can use your own SIM if required (cloud server fee applies).

Furthermore, OCULi units can be self-monitored or integrated with monitoring centres using the Immix, Sentinel or Webeye platforms.

The NEXUS Lockdown Systemnexus lockdown

HSE Fire Safety guidelines (HSG168) require construction sites to have a VISUAL and AUDIBLE alert to fire.

Nexus battery operated units can be quickly installed on a construction site whilst building is in progress and can be deployed as the site evolves.

Activating one NEXUS unit triggers all units within range to sound an audible alert / announcement along with a flashing beacon.

You can site the units 1km apart and external units are weatherproof to IP66.
