Surfs Up For Gallagher, Johnson Controls At South Maroubra Surf Lifesaving Club.

Surfs Up For Gallagher, Johnson Controls – Gallagher Security and Johnson Controls have partnered to donate a Gallagher SMB access control and security system to South Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club in Sydney.

Established in 1959, South Maroubra Surf Life Saving Club was in desperate need of a future-proof, access-control solution that would enable them to continue their dedicated service to keeping Maroubra Beach safe, while training the next generation of life savers.

The club’s former security system was cumbersome and failing due to old age and corrosion, and it needed a solution that was modern, secure, and very user-friendly.

Surfs Up For Gallagher, Johnson Controls At Maroubra – The club contacted SMSLSC member, Andrew McCabe, director government & defence Pacific at security integrator Johnson Controls, who approached Gallagher Security.

“I reached out to our partner Gallagher who we have a 25-year plus relationship with – I knew their Gallagher SMB (Security Made Better) solution would be a great fit for sports clubs and community facilities,” McCabe said.

According to national SMB manager for Gallagher Security, Greg O’Neill, the Gallagher team was keen to support the club by donating an SMB solution.

“With the Johnson Controls NSW Systems & Service teams taking care of the installation as part of their MyGiving program, the club has been brought into a new era of security and access control with a next generation cloud-based system that can be easily managed from a smartphone,” said O’Neill.

With the largest Surf Life Saving ‘Nippers’ program in the country and multi-use premises, a solution that enabled easy and quick installation was critical. Johnson Controls was able to install the Gallagher SMB system within a day. The cloud-based security system had an immediate impact on the club’s systems and processes, with a reduction in administration of more than 2 hours a week – significant time savings for an volunteer organisation.

Gallagher SMB is an app-based security solution that simplifies and streamlines security for businesses. Offering ease of use, improved efficiency, remote access, lock downs and upgrades, easy installation, and round-the-clock support.

Gaining access to the club with SMB with smart phone or fobs for those without smart phones is now easy, while management can handle access for deliveries or emergencies remotely. Free upgrades can be managed via remote access, saving the not-for-profit club time and money.

Most importantly, according to McCabe, the partnership between Gallagher Security and Johnson Controls enables club members to focus on what’s most important – keeping people safe on the beach.

“We are proud to have shared our time and smart building solutions to provide security to club members and club visitors at SMSLC,” McCabe said.
