Iveagh Court, Dublin

Iveagh Court


Iveagh Court, located in Dublin, is a multi-use facility, which began construction in 1994 and was completed in 2002. As one of the architectural landmarks in the city, the complex comprises office spaces and six floors of residential apartments. As technology evolves, so does the need for a modern access control system. The existing on-premise access control system had become outdated, prompting the decision to approach Electro for the installation of a cloud-based access control system – Avigilon Alta. This case study highlights the successful transition to Avigilon Alta, emphasizing the installation process, the advantages it brings, and the benefits realized by Iveagh Court.


Iveagh Court faced the challenge of upgrading its access control system from an obsolete on-premise solution. This challenge included ensuring the secure management of access for a complex housing both office spaces and residential apartments, while embracing the modern technology trends in access control.


Electro Automation was entrusted with the responsibility of upgrading the access control system at Iveagh Court by implementing the Avigilon Alta solution. The installation process was marked by its seamless execution, which even included the disengagement of the old system.

Furthermore, Electro Automation ensured a smooth transition for Iveagh Court by providing comprehensive training to the personnel involved. The initial training phase was followed by a practical, hands-on learning approach, which allowed the staff to become proficient in operating the new system.

An outstanding advantage of the Avigilon Alta system was the ability to utilize a person’s smartphone for access in case of lost fobs or keycards. This added layer of convenience ensured that residents and employees could maintain secure access even in the event of access credential loss.
