Boon Edam Keeps Going with More Features Added to the Lifeline Speedlane Swing
Edam, The Netherlands – Today, Royal Boon Edam International B.V announced the release of multiple upgrades to their top-selling Lifeline Speedlane Swing security speed gate. The new features include a Sound Module, Top Mount and Universal Elevator Destination Display. Ever-Evolving Optimised Security Solutions The end of 2018 saw the addition of the Lifeline Boost access control pedestal to the sleek and intuitive series of speed gates, followed earlier this year by the integration of Schindler’s PORT 4 mini transit intelligence solution into the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. Mark de Jong, Senior Product Manager, Royal Boon Edam International B.V. says: "As much as we have been successful with the Lifeline series since its launch in 2015, it is important for us to continue developing the product series in order for us to satisfy our customer’s needs. These new features will allow us to improve not only the functionality of the product but also introduce new integration possibilities to the market." Sound Module – Security Breach Awareness Sound detection is an excellent deterrent for unauthorised visitors. It is easily monitored remotely through a security system, manned by professional security personnel. With the latest upgrade of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing, an audible alarm has been introduced alongside the existing visible alarms to increase awareness of a breach in security. The sound module has five audio scenarios - each with three sounds and adjustable volume settings – providing freedom of choice and flexibility. Top Mount Universal Access Control Stand With technology never standing still, it is important that your chosen security access solution keeps up with the trends and be able to facilitate new technologies in access control, without incurring large additional costs. The Top Mount is a universal stand that can be mounted on top of the Lifeline Speedlane Swing cabinet unit. It can accommodate a variety of access control systems and can be placed on either the secured or non-secured side. The Top Mount is an alternative to the recently launched Lifeline Boost access control pedestal, which is positioned independently in front of a lane cabinet, rather than the top mount which is mounted on the top of a cabinet. Universal Elevator Destination Display Vertical urbanisation is a trend the world is watching closely and seeing unfold before our eyes as both commercial and residential growth goes upwards. The elevator is now expected to be secure as well as intelligent and provide an integral part of a security access solution. As demanded by the market, the universal elevator destination display is a new option available on the Lifeline Speedlane Swing. This option contains 8 LEDs to assign an elevator. These LEDs are externally controlled by the elevator manufacturer and their technology which is integrated with our feature. The universal display can show either numbers or letters and the display can be integrated into the top of the lane for standard lanes or lower down on the side of the cabinet for user-friendly disabled access. All these progressive features are available to order throughout the EMEA, the Americas and Asia regions. Visit Lifeline Speedlane Swing to learn more about the leading security speed gate.

The Power of Two at MIPIM 2019
Edam, the Netherlands, March 2019 – Boon Edam today announce that ‘the Power of Two’ joint elevator destination control solution will be on exhibit at the Schindler stand at the 30th edition of MIPIM – the world’s leading property event. Earlier this year Boon Edam and Schindler PORT Technology released an integrated solution to tackle seamless and secure elevator destination control. This ‘Power of Two’ combines Boon Edam’s Lifeline Speedlane Swing speed gate and Schindler’s myPORT technology (PORT 4 mini). The result is slim, secure and fully integrated transit intelligence. Experience Two Technologies in One Solution From 12 – 15 March 2019, visitors to MIPIM will be able to experience this solution themselves on the Schindler booth. Boon Edam is delighted to be represented, together with Schindler PORT Technology, at this prestigious event in Cannes, and look forward to networking with the world’s leading investment and development community. In addition to the ‘Power of Two’ elevator destination control solution, Schindler will also be giving visitors the chance to experience their digital products live in action as they showcase their cutting-edge solutions which are shaping tomorrow’s cities. Delegates and visitors should not miss out on learning more about PORT Technology and Schindler Ahead – both of which will be discussed during the event as exclusive talks in the conference area. More details here. Seamless and Secure Elevator Destination Control The benefits of intelligent access and transit management, as well as numerous merits of adopting IoT-based connected mobility, are clearly demonstrated in the combined solution. While the PORT device authenticates and guides the visitor or resident, Boon Edam’s Lifeline Speedlane Swing takes care of the entrance management. The Lifeline Speedlane is well-known as the slimmest, fully operational speed gate on the market, and has been developed with aesthetics in mind. It’s smooth, premium glass casing houses intuitive-coloured LED lights which effortlessly glide along the tapered cabinet top to ease the visitors seamlessly through the check-point. By integrating PORT technology into the speed gate, a visitor or resident can be quickly authorised via RFID card or the myPORT smartphone app whereby visitors can be granted access via a web-based colour code. Once authenticated, the PORT’s elevator dispatch algorithm instantaneously allocates the best possible elevator to the passenger.
