Automation is the automatic control of a facility by seamless electronic
systems that control the security, energy consumption, management,
example would be an access system that works together with an individual
door alarm system that works with an outdoor beam system that works with
a hallway lighting control system that gives you a display in the office
of hall movement and also shows the hallway temperatures.
security/control options for self storage facilities.
System: The system is a stand alone base unit in the office with four keypads
that controls the access at two gates to the facility. The access is
joined with individual door alarms using Envirocom's patented Trackit
roll-up door switch sets on all unit doors.
2)Graphics/Custom Light Panel:The unit site plan graphics is
displayed on a 21 inch computer monitor which is scanning the site plan
and showing the door status of all units. This is coupled with
Envirocom's real time light panel, which is a complete facility site
plan silk screened onto smoked plexi glass that shows, at a glance, all
activity on the facility. The activity status of all the climate
controlled buildings entry/exit doors and halls is done with green and
red lights which change from green(door closed, no activity in the
halls) to red(door open, activity in the halls). The light panel
is incorporated into the black plexi glass that surrounds the monitors
on the security wall display.
3)Office/Apartment/Building Alarm System:From the alarm keypad in
the office or apartment the facility can be armed to signal a warning if
an intruder opens any of the doors to the office/apt. or any entry doors
to the climate hallways. An audible warning will also sound if
there is any hallway activity in the storage buildings after the alarm
4)Fire Sprinkler Monitoring:The fire sprinkler system is
monitored 24 hours a day for water line pressure loss. If the
water pressure drops an audible warning sounds and the status light
changes from green to red on the light panel. The monitoring
company is called by the system confirming the loss of water
5)Lighting Control System:The climate controlled hallways do not
have wall timers(that are not energy efficient) to turn on the lights in
the hallways. Envirocom designed an energy efficient self
diagnosing lighting system to control the lights instead of wall timers.
The lighting system runs a self-test on itself
constantly making the system very dependable and easy to maintain.
As soon as a door to one of the climate controlled hallway starts to
open the lights for that area come on and stay on for a programmed
length of time. Motion in the hallway keeps the lights on while
the tenant is inside.
6)Camera Surveillance System:Up to 16 digital cameras with auto iris lenses are viewed on a large display media.
The camera display can be on a 21" to 42" screen. The
16 cameras are routed into a Digital Video Recorder that maintains a 24
hour video stamp for each camera. The cameras can be viewed at the site or
over the internet.
7)Temperature Monitoring and Alert System:The climate controlled
building's temperatures are displayed on the security wall along with
the outside temperature and the special area temperature(wine
storage). If the temperature fluctuates beyond a reasonable
level a warning is sounded. The monitoring company is also alerted.
8)Music in the Halls:Background music in the climate controlled
hallways provides a nice mood setting for the tenants. The receiver can be tuned
to a local station or fed with an auxiliary source. The volume and
tuning are controlled in the office.
9)Intercom System:Normally a intercom station is installed at all
elevator locations and at all keypads. If the project is unusually
large more stations can be installed. The intercom allows the
tenants to talk to the managers in the office during business hours.
10)Magnetic Door Hold Open Devices:Air conditioning is very
expensive. To make an attempt to keep the tenants from propping
the doors to the climate hallways open for indefinite periods of time, a
magnetic hold open device with a 15 minute timer can be installed.
This makes it very easy for the tenant to hold the door open and
hopefully not prop the door open. If a tenant does prop a door open the
managers get an alert in the office indicating which door is open.

not to get caught in the General Contractor's frame of mind. A GC only cares about finishing

We offer our customers a broad range of
services associated with electronics. A "one stop
shopping" theme adopted by Envirocom's owners and staff has proven
to be innovative and successful. Design and installation of new
automation systems are another area that Envirocom specializes in.
The following procedures are typical for a new installation:
1)Design according to the client's specific needs, including:
systems(gate integrated or stand alone)
automation for energy management
access gate and
2)Equipment specification suited for the design
layout during stage 1.
This includes lists with
prices and delivery dates.
3)Purchasing, beta testing and programming of
the equipment are standard.
After expediting all
equipment for a specific job, we set the equipment up in
our lab and test out all
features of the equipment. If a problem does exist
we find it at the lab first,
not at the job. We also
weather proof the equipment
