UKAA News Buzz 15/02/22 – Smart Access Control – More Than Clever Locks!

February 15th 2022

YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

EDITOR’S NOTE

It’s hard to believe we’re already seven weeks in to the ‘new’ year, where does the time go? So much has happened since the beginning of 2022, not least the announcement that our good friend Dave Butler has decided to stand down as Chief Executive Officer of the UKAA at the end of April. Needless to say, Dave’s steadying hand will be sadly missed at the helm of the organisation. On a personal note, here at TLJ we’d like to thank Dave for his unswerving help and guidance from the first day we joined the UKAA. We look forward to seeing him again at the BTR Expo in April, and wish him all the very best in his next adventure!

The theme of this latest edition of News Buzz is how Smart Access Control goes ‘beyond locks’. A good access control provider will ensure their system integrates seamlessly with other smart tech in the building; in effect they should become a design and specification partner for your scheme. At design stage they will work across all verticals as a single point of contact for all aspects of access control. In modern schemes, smart building integration is at least as important as hardware specification, and your access control provider should ‘have your back’ here too.

All TLJ’s contactless electronic door locks and access control systems are not only state-of-the-art in terms of security, safety and aesthetic features, but also optimised for smart integration via TLJ’s unique operating platform.

We’re delighted to be able to share how we’re bringing our expertise to bear on a major residential scheme for Long Harbour and Formation Design & Build, at Ashley Gardens in Tottenham Hale, London.

For more information, call us on 01482 8320334 or drop us a line at enquiry@tljlimited.com.

We hope you enjoy the latest edition of News Buzz.

Best wishes,

The TLJ Team
