  1. Starting to get that after, what, 12 years? Didn't think of that, thank you, I'm 6'3" so will look at that carefully. If it didn't interfere with the shoot bolt system, it could maybe go at the top of the jamb... Door is all installed BTW.
  2. Pics? I'm not falling for that you know It's a heavy duty steel security door from these guys: https://www.lathamssteeldoors.co.uk/ (maybe you know them?)
  3. I should come here more often! There is a built in mortice lock system with shoot bolts all around plus dog bolts. This will be used to secure the door after closing time. I thought it would be nice to have a mag lock during opening hours to allow staff to come and go with just a blip on a badge reader.
  4. Well the purpose of the maglock is for easy staff entry and exit. Your question suggests I've made some sort of error though. Maybe I should have specified an integrated system at purchase?
  5. Thanks James. For the spacer do you mean the magnet fixed into a plate which is longer/wider than the magnet, allowing you to fix through it around the edges? Edit, just found this:
  6. Howdy, time flies as they say! I thought I'd post here rather than starting a new thread. This extension has taken rather more time and effort than I bargained for. Just moved into the new part but loads of details to finish necessitating long hours and short nights. Got the Doorbird up and running (really great kit, very configurable), extension to intruder and CCTV will be in shortly. Right now fitting a maglock (ML600) to a steel personnel door. Never come up against this problem before: how do you fit this kind of thing to a hollow steel door considering the forces involved? I don't fancy self tappers much as they have a tendancy to move over time. Rivets would be fine but not long enough for the magnet part. Would clinch nuts be the way to go?
  7. Er...you’ve got to love economies of scale?
  8. Just thought it would be interesting to see what you thought from "the other side". Agree that its ironic about the dentists looking for the cheapest price but saying that if they're NHS then there won't be any V8 Vantages in the carpark. Thought the quote from Chubb might raise some discussion too. They're the equivalent of ADT are they not?
  9. Finally found the time to take a look at the Solitaire units and its not very obvious but the contacts on the relays of one of the two (the one that gets activated much more) look a bit burnt. Considering the price I'll just get another unit. Thanks for the tip MrH
  10. Saw this over on the GDPUK trade forums, thought it would be interesting to have your thoughts from both perspectives! "hi. Im new to the GDPUK - posted a query last night and it didn't submit, so not sure I am doing this correctly. However, I am in need of some sensible advice on fire alarms please. We have had a fire risk assessment by Chubb and have been advised to have a fire alarm fitted because we only have domestic ones that are not considered suitable. The recommendation is " a category L4 fire alarm system ...in compliance with the recommendations of the current British Standard 5839;part 1..."We have a quotes form Chubb to place this, at over £4k. they have provided a schematic and are in a position to be able to provide a certificate to show it is at BS 5839.I have given this schematic to a smaller company who have come back with a quote of £3k for the same thing. ( not VAT registered) I am sure this is fine to go ahead with, as it is reaching the standard, and I can see in the Regualtory Reform ( fire safely) order 2005, as a " responsible person " I can employ someone who is regarded as competent " where he has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities to enable him to properly implement the measures" I can see no legislation above this. This company regularly places alarms. I am meeting resistance within the practice, could I please have some sensible advice and help. Thank you in advance.
  11. Strange one, the DygiZone that I installed about 6 years ago with 2 Solitaire units and D-Tect2 PIRs has started making random clicking noises. I've checked the backup battery (3V) and even done a battery-out reset but the damn thing keeps clicking usually when one of the PIRs fires up but sometimes it just starts all by itself. Anybody encountered this before? I'm wondering if it's one of the Solitaire units.
  12. I think I found the answer. The Doorbird is ONVIF compatible so there should be no problem getting a feed to a ONVIF compatible NVR. As far as the SIP thing goes, rather than set up the door station as an extension, it should be set up as a Peer Sip Trunk (in the same manner as connecting two PBXs) then it can be resolved to a ring group.
  13. Where is Happyland BTW? I've never been further North than Birmingham (I'm rather ashamed to say) but I have to get up there at one point, there are some who say it's beautiful part of the country ;-) Actually it's more like like £600 for the door station but if it works as needed then it's a good investment. No-one's vandalised the Aiphone DB I put in-yet. When you say PSTN intercom do you mean a closed system that uses PSTN protocol or actually connected to an analogue internal phone system? The phone system here is IP in the cloud so the second one won't work and it also needs to sound in and be controlled from each of about 12 rooms. The surgery is in France and in France staff cost is huge. As you may know in the UK employers NHS contribution is about 11% of an employees salary, in France it's 100% so 2 salaries paid for 1 employee. Upshot is not enough staff and hence the reason they are "mobile". This means that there is no 1 receptionist, rather an assistant comes to reception as and when needed (cameras very useful for this!). When the extension work is done and I take on more associates and more staff (ouch) there may then be a permeant receptionist but even then dentists often work late here and with the 35 hour week no receptionist will stay this late so everyone in every room needs to be able to communicate with the front door an control access. Compared to the cost of employing a dedicated receptionist a few grand is not a lot of dosh.
  14. If you mean "can you connect analogue devices to the PBX" then yes, it has 2 FXS ports. Otherwise there will be 1 or 2 incoming analogue lines that I'll keep for lifeline's sake.
