Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab, a new Dubai statement resort from Jumeirah Group, is using Maxxess eFusion technology to provide access control and enable integration of third-party security, safety and back- and front-of-house systems.

Jumeirah Group selected Maxxess eFusion following a competitive technology evaluation. According to the company, its platform allows off-the-shelf integration with more than 60 leading technologies including video surveillance, fire, building management systems and site-specific applications and hardware.

Jumeirah Marsa Al Arab, opening this year, will include 408 rooms, four super penthouses, a premium yacht club and marina with 128 berths, nine high-end villas and an extensive resort landscaped with infinity pools and beachfront at the heart of Dubai’s largest private beach.

The integrated Maxxess solution at the resort, implemented by Telematics, encompasses 256 controllers to manage guest doors in the hotel and penthouses and external access for the private villas, staff entrances, gatehouses, car parks and goods-in areas. Integration with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, allows them to use traditional credentials or personal smartphones to access hotel rooms, safety deposit boxes and secure closets.

The surveillance system, comprising over 700 Hanwha Techwin cameras provides a full audit trail of room access and allows services such as room cleaning to be delivered efficiently with no disruption to guests. Integration of Hanwha Techwin’s Wisenet VMS ensures coverage of the hotel’s interior and exterior areas, including landscaped gardens, private beach, pools, integrated leisure and wellness facilities and signature restaurants.

Integration with the Zenitel IP video intercom system and the resort’s fire system, ensures efficient management through eFusion’s single user interface. This removes reliance on siloed systems, eliminating control room inefficiencies and gaps in security.

In the event of an incident, such as a forced door, fire alarm or system health check issue, eFusion will automatically pop-up up the nearest camera views, enabling operators to visually verify the incident and initiate an appropriate rapid response.

“This landmark project builds on a continuing run of success that cements Maxxess’s position as a technology leader in the luxury hospitality sector in the UAE,” commented Lee Copland, Managing Director EMEA, Maxxess.

“Our simple and fair license fee structure is also ideal for large, statement developments as it lets customers mix and match best-in-breed systems and offers a future-proof platform that makes it easy to bring new technologies online.”
