Dean Turnbull, CEO, Next Edge.

Integrator Next Edge has integrated access control, alarms, audio and IT solutions for multiple Fitness Playground sites, most recently at Marrickville, in Sydney.

The system at Marrickville incorporates Inner Range Integriti controllers and expanders with several legacy Concept panels, as well as HID readers, Hikvision turnstiles, Hikvision cameras, Hikvision NVRs and iVMS, a range of locks, duress buttons and more.

According to Next Edge CEO, Dean Turnbull, the company integrated core subsystems using a Next Edge-developed management solution called GymSync, which it has licensed to Fitness Playground. Turnbull said the installation had its challenges, but the team was very pleased with the results.

“Every Fitness Playground gym is architecturally designed, with each property given a theme that must be applied to everything across the site, including the form and function of the electronic security solutions,” Turnbull said.

“This was a challenging integration, with complexities of space and access, as well as the need to customise in layers to meet the overriding aesthetic demands of the site,” Turnbull said.

“Fitness Playground is delighted with their system, particularly with the new Hikvision turnstiles, which our techs found very easy to integrate with Integriti with no compulsory involvement from the manufacturer – a situation that too often crops up with some other turnstile providers.”
