Victoria and Stobhill Hospitals
Glasgow hospitals, Stobhill and Victoria are two of Scotland’s
largest hospitals, each featuring four floors covering 30,000 square
metres and providing care for 400,000 patients. CEM Systems
supplied the new £100 million hospitals with a fully integrated
IP solution using the CEM AC2000 SE (Standard Edition) system.

AC2000 SE (Standard edition)
Installed by ADT Glasgow, the AC2000 SE system also provided
the integration platform for over 26 Intellex DVR’s (Digital video
Recorders) and Honeywell Galaxy Intruder Alarm Panels.
As part of the prestigious public/ private sector partnership
project, the new ambulatory care hospitals at Victoria and Stobhill
represented a significant investment in National Health Services
(NHS) and marked a new era in patient care.
CEM IP readers...
Using CEM EtherProx card readers within the design of the
AC2000 SE system, CEM provided the hospitals with a flexible
and versatile IP based security solution. The EtherProx reader

Keeping patients and staff secure…

of extreme importance due to patient safety, criminal
threats and increased attacks on staff. CEM Systems
have provided Stobhill and Victoria with an advanced
future proof security solution and will continue to support
both Glasgow hospitals in their future security needs.
