Having worked in the Telecare and door entry industry for over twenty years, Network Communication Systems Ltd (NCS) not only know their market extremely well, but have also gained vast technical experience in their field. The Doncaster-based company design and manufacture several of their own systems, each of which has its own unique advantages over the warden call, door access control and Telecare equipment offered by some other manufacturers. These extra features mean that aside from the clear benefits of using NCS systems, such as their reliability and ease of use, there are several other advantages that you may not know about.
Free tenant-to-tenant calls
The NCS-designed, PBX-based Xenon warden call system provides multiple simultaneous speech paths. This means that in addition to alarm calls and door entry calls, tenants can also make unlimited calls to each other without charge. There are very few, if any, of our competitors’ systems that can offer this functionality, making it a very desirable feature.
Prepared for the IP switchover
It is predicted that in the very near future, Alarm/Telecare systems will move away from traditional analogue networks, making way for the more modern internet-based IP technology to be adopted. Although the equipment will not be much different to actually use, there will be a huge fundamental change in the way it operates. Offering many new features and facilities, NCS are aware of the impending changeover, and have ensured that the Xenon system is future-proof, as our wiring and core equipment already supports the transition to IP. Our systems are also able to accommodate features such as Broadband and Telephony.
NCS Door Entry panels come with their own integral fob reader fitted as standard; so one does not have to order a separate standalone access system. Fobs are programmed via the panel, meaning that no master programming keys or paper records to determine which fob is programmed to which property are needed. Additionally we only require one master door controller, regardless of the number of reader panels (doors). The majority of other systems require an expensive door controller for every two doors.
