Dynamic develops single-app building automation system in collaboration with Comelit and ASSA ABLOY

An inclusive building automation system controlled through a single app has been developed by GET Dynamics to provide property owners and residents at luxury apartment development, Live Oasis Deansgate, with more efficient management capabilities. The collaboration utilised Comelit and ASSA ABLOY solutions. 

Debuted at Live Oasis in Manchester, the new smart mobile-first solution enables property owners, YPP Lettings and Management Company Ltd, to manage all 60 apartments via the use of cloud-based technology. Apartment owners can also control all aspects of their home including video entry calls, door opening and apartment automation, using just one app.

Located in the Deansgate district, Live Oasis is designed for students and young professionals. With fully furnished studio, one- and two-bed apartments, it also features a concierge service together with on-site security, all available for residents through the working week and supported by 24-hour CCTV.

YPP Managing Director Omar Al-Nujaifi says: “We worked with each company right from pre-project launch to achieve the desired, integrated result. GET Dynamic specified Comelit to provide fully-functional video door entry, without compromising on style or security, together with advanced access control and digital key functionality by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, all now operable from the main building app, ResiCentral”.

Residents can use the built-in smart hub and app capability to control door entry security and access control, together with lighting, TV, blind automation and room temperature monitoring and benefit from additional features such as air quality, energy efficiency and occupancy monitoring.

Dynamic’s Group CEO James Baird adds: “Our technology and platform is capable of bringing together every aspect of smart building automation in one system. When selecting our specialist security partners, we have a long-established relationship with Comelit and know its video door entry systems are well-designed, robust and offer the latest smart video technology.  The same is true for ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions. When brought together, Live Oasis presented the perfect opportunity to integrate the complete security operation into our app and offer an all-encompassing solution for a more enhanced user experience.”

The virtual door entry and access control was integrated into the ResiCentral platform with ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions technology for the building’s access control solutions from perimeter protection to individual apartments. This also includes the ability for residents to gain convenient access to their accommodations by using personal devices as a secure digital key.

Comelit, with whom GET Dynamic has a close working partnership, was responsible for the IP door entry system installed at Live Oasis, operating from its VIP technology. The system specified comprised two module video VIP entrance panels, together with a multiuser gateway, to allow for visual and audio individual apartment access.

Stephen Wragg, Comelit Business Development Manager concludes: “Right from the specification process, the objective was to utilise latest smart solutions to enable property owners and residents alike a unified mobile experience.  This is where ResiCentral, together with the advances of home automation, inclusive of Comelit’s video door entry, combined to provide a single cloud-based solution. The result helps property developers create safer, smarter buildings and at the same time, enhance the resident experience, taking all-inclusive mobile capability to a whole new level.”
