Managing user access in and around the building
The Government Building is designed to be a world-class modern structure to host the Houses of Parliament and their constituents.
Construction began in 2001, completing in September 2003. It has now been remodelled in 2020 with SPG Controls assisting with the security improvements.
The Government Building comprises 5,000 sqm of space divided into various sized offices over 9 floors.
Challenges Faced by Government Building
Monitoring and controlling user traffic
A reliable system with little or no downtime/outages
A short project implementation period
Web-based/Mobile apps – providing mobility of usage under cyber security requirements

The ARCO Solution is an intelligent, centrally-controlled, network designed primarily for managing numerous users with various access levels to a variety of security doors. A fully configurable User Credential system determines who is allowed to enter or exit along with where and when they are permitted to do so.
Smart Building Management
The S1000 Smart Controller was installed to monitor and automate alarms and access control rights to areas and doors. There is automatic data collection from readers and other devices within each location. Security in each area can be fine-tuned using Scheduled Access, Anti-passback, Duress Alarms and Dual Authentication options.
Consolidated Cloud-based Monitoring
The ARCO Platform is a web-based application that resides in either a central location or cloud and provides the collection point for all events from the S1000 Smart Controller. The software monitors security/access alarm, user activity, data gathering from the readers connected to the controller located at each door, and prioritises events for multiple operator workstations.
Comprehensive User Access Control
Interactive dashboards and graphical screens provide easy management and data consolidation showing the current and historical status of secure areas. There is the ability to drill down to view the current status and system configuration at any location, enabling timely management of alarms and proper escalation of emergencies. Details of the recorded history stored in the system can be used for analytics and performance enhancements.
