CEM Systems Ltd
Innovative Access Solutions
Securing healthcare facilities around the world…
CEM Systems from Tyco, (the security brand of Johnson Controls) is a leading provider of access control and integrated security management systems. With 30 years’ security experience, CEM Systems uniquely manufactures both the AC2000 access control hardware and software and performs high level system integrations to suit project requirements. As such, the CEM AC2000 solution provides one of the most comprehensive, resilient and flexible security systems available today and is used by many leading hospitals throughout the UK.
CEM’s intelligent range of IP card readers/controllers and biometric solutions not only provide hospitals with high levels of security but also assist beyond access control to improve site operations. Smart intelligent devices such as the revolutionary CEM emerald touch screen access terminal are proving ideal for healthcare facilities. emerald is a highly secure smart card reader and controller combined, with an additional fully integrated VoIP (Voice over IP)intercom in the one device. This saves hospitals costs by removing the need to purchase a separate intercom solution from the access control system.
As an edge device, emerald also uniquely offers hospitals a range of intelligent door modes and smart applications’ for use directly at the secure door. These applications can be used for functions beyond access control such as hospital ‘Room Booking’, integrated staff ‘Time & Attendance’ or for Ward managers to locally change staff or temporary worker ID access levels right at the applicable door.
Using a series of emerald adverts and configurable checklist mode questions, healthcare premises are also using emerald to improve site health and safety. For example healthcare cardholders can be prompted to wash their hands before entering a hospital area or theatre, or can be visually notified if a particular hospital zone is under quarantine.
