Fermax are delighted to have been able to offer an ideal, cost effective solution to allow installation partners to complete a successful upgrade of a large apartment complex in Nottingham.

Working with its approved partner FSE Security systems and involving over 90 apartments at Marina Park Nottingham, the challenge was to upgrade an old third-party audio only system to a modern audio-video system with the minimum of disturbance to residents and without incurring excessive high cost.

By using the Fermax 2 Wire Duox system with SKYLINE surface mounted panels and VEO-XS flat screen hands-free video monitors the installation was completed using existing cables throughout, achieving major reductions in time and material cost.

Residents were delighted to be able to upgrade to the new Fermax VEO-XS monitor using innovative 2 wire DUOX technology offering the high-quality performance of a purely digital system.

As well as its modern, slimline design the VEO XS hands-free monitor offers the added benefit of image storage and retrieval using the PHOTOCALLER function, enabling residents to view images of visitors and callers to their apartment whilst they were not at home.
