Savoy Circus given VIP treatment

Comelit’s latest VIP door entry technology has been installed at the redeveloped Savoy Circus accommodation, allowing students to receive video calls via their mobile phone.


The site in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, vacant for almost 20 years, was previously home for the Savoy Circus and has been redeveloped in a conservation area. It now stands at 7-storeys and presents 306 studio apartments, complete with communal spaces including a café, student lounge, arcade and gym.

Under construction company Tide Construction system integrators selected Comelit to create a bespoke door entry finish, using its VIP technology.  With ease of install a major advantage, on completion, the system allows students to receive visual notifications to smart phones.

Pat Blanche, M&E manager at Tide Construction Limited, said: “Abzorb recommended Comelit as one of the leading security brands in audio-video intercom, presenting a simple way for students to receive smart door entry notifications, even when they are not at home.”

Abzorb installed Comelit’s latest VIP system on site, integrating with the building management system to enable a seamless door entry experience and maintenance through VIP’s dedicated management software.

Operating via two multi-user gateway systems on-site, students can answer calls from the main door via their smartphone with full video communication using the dedicated Comelit app.
