VingCard Elsafe's VISION Locking System Installed At
University of Limerick Student Housing


Modern Accommodations at Ireland Institution Boasts Electronic Security
Technology With Flexible Access Management



Paris – September 26, 2011 – VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, has installed its VISION locking system at all 424 student apartments at the newly renovated Plassey Village housing complex at Ireland’s prestigious University of Limerick. VISION by VingCard provides reporting capabilities to enhance the property's security, with all access logged to ensure that anyone entering or leaving the buildings and their secure areas is automatically documented

Plassey Village, located just outside the main university gates, features terraced houses of four to eight beds each clustered around landscaped courtyards in a comfortable, communal environment. Individual houses within the complex offer private single bedrooms and fully outfitted kitchens and dining areas, along with cable, high-speed Internet access and a resident manager.
 
Originally completed in 1992, the university-owned and managed Plassey Village complex was entirely refurbished in time for the 2011 academic year. The university decided to implement VingCard’s VISION locking system—designed for ease of installation in retrofitted buildings—for its slate of electronic remote monitoring capabilities. VISION tracks all attempts to access any housing unit, giving residents at Plassey Village the same level of comprehensive security found in the university’s academic buildings. Furthermore, the installation of VISION allows Plassey Village student residents to gain access to facilities throughout the campus with the same card that operates their residential locks.
 
The cutting-edge yet cost-effective VISION system uses intuitive touchscreen technology and menu-driven software for user-friendly operation, and with plug-and-play connectivity, an intuitive graphical interface and menu-driven software, VISION is simple to install and to use. The system’s modular software can be easily updated with the latest technological enhancements.
 
VISION's report templates and flexibility make it easy to quickly extract information about which keys have accessed which doors, and the dedicated portable LockLink interrogation and programming unit lets management view the last 600 locking events from the entry log audit trail. The VISION system is based on a robust and advanced client server SQL database, ensuring fast and reliable operations and preventing the system from crashing in the event of a single terminal outage. Database files are protected by high-security encryption.
 
“The VISION access control system is a brilliant option for building managers who want to add technologically advanced security to existing facilities in a cost-effective way, and that is exactly what the University of Limerick has done with Plassey Village,” says Christian Hénon, president of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Europe/Middle East/Africa. “More flexible than most systems on the market, VISION allows management to control exactly who may unlock which doors and when, ensuring that the and guests are safe and secure at all times.”
 
VingCard Elsafe is the world leader in developing locking systems for the student accommodation industry, offering user-friendly security systems that meet the unique operational needs of academic lodging facilities. For more information, visit www.vingcardelsafe.com .
