Certified Urmet system products have been tested as a critical component of a Premier LPS1175-SR2 doorset.


Guideline considerations at a glance:

Vandal resistant panels

Urmet’s vandal resistant panels have been tested as a critical component within an LPS1175‐SR2 doorset.

Access Control

Our access control systems are fully programmable with access restricted to the nominated system controller who can delete lost or stolen proximity cards or key fobs via remote access.

Video entry monitors

Urmet video entry monitors display the image of the caller before the call is answered, so the resident can choose whether to answer the call and release the door. The monitors permit live audio‐visual communication.

Self‐resetting exit system

Our vandal‐resistant, stainless steel self‐resetting exit systems are available surface or flush mounted and are suitable for use with fail safe releases and maglocks to provide an important aid to egress in the event of an emergency.

CCTV integration

Urmet door entry systems can integrate with CCTV cameras to record colour images of people using the door entry panel and store these for at least 30 days.

Mifare Plus with AES 128 bit Encryption

Our electronic keys are security encrypted to protect against unauthorised copying, and are sufficiently robust to avoid constant replacement.

Data logging for visitor and resident

Our access control system has the facility to record and identify the location, user, type, time and date of every system event. This information can be stored for at least 30 days.

Lift destination control

With lift management, the lift can be called and sent to the desired floor, improving security by restricting the areas which visitors can visit.

Building Compartmentation

Our access control systems and lift management software can be used to restrict access to the communal areas and relevant residential floors only.
