Located in Naperville, Illinois, CityGate Centre is home to fine restaurants and inviting bars, a four-diamond modern luxury hotel & spa, 285 luxury apartment residences, and even Class-A office space. It’s home to hundreds and a workplace for many more.
But such a bustling community brings big security and safety concerns. That’s why CityGate Centre turned to the team here at LaMarco to make sure everyone who lives, works, and enjoys all that their property has to offer is safe.
For LaMarco’s role, we brought our many areas of expertise in life safety solutions to the Lincoln at CityGate Centre project, solutions that focused on their multi-family residences there and included integrated fire alarm systems, CCTV-IP cameras, wireless locks, state of the art access control solutions, and area of rescue plans.
When it came to access control, we partnered with Livly, an all-in-one AI application for optimizing apartment management, enabling smart access, and designing resident experiences that help increase efficiency and build resident satisfaction. Livly’s mission is to excite residents with a custom mobile app, events, a private Community Feed, keyless entry, and amenity bookings, all of which fit seamlessly into the growing requirements of this community.
In addition to all of those features, their tool integrated with another one of our other partners, Allegion, who we turned to for all of the smart locks used throughout the premises.
Both of these systems, focused on making life easier and safer for residents, were then buttressed by our cloud-based CCTV-IP cameras, giving management a 360-degree view of the property. With the ability to review footage remotely and share with authorities quickly, these cameras added another layer of security for residents who knew the premises as a whole was safe and being constantly monitored.
We also developed state-of-the-art plans to ensure that their fire alarm systems were fully integrated and on the cutting edge of technology. Our NICET-certified professionals supported the property through design, permitting, setup and installation, then on through technical support and training, and finally into post-installation monitoring.
Ongoing fire system monitoring and rapid alarm response is critical to protecting buildings and the people who live and work within. But monitoring isn’t always enough.
Whether a facility is looking to fulfill code requirements or simply add another layer of security to protect building occupants, multi-story buildings must be equipped with emergency intercom systems as well as reliable two-way communication to ensure people with limited mobility or a disability are safe in emergency situations. That’s where our Area of Rescue solutions provided comprehensive and intuitive communication tools, ready for when they may be needed the most.
