NEWS & PRESS RELEASES
“Third Millennium is supplying
some of the most security-
conscious organisations in the
world, and now has the perfect
showcase for its technology.”
When Third Millennium, a world-
class manufacturer of sophisticated
access control technology, was
looking to protect its own premises,
it turned to Evolution, a world-class
integrated security and fire
solutions business, to provide the answer.
Evolution has an established reputation for excellence having
worked on many high-profile projects, designing, specifying,
integrating and maintaining
systems in some of the most demanding environments. Some of
these projects have specified Third Millennium readers. Its brief
was to deliver a solution that not only provided the highest
levels of security, but also served to showcase Third Millennium
readers and their capabilities in the best possible light.
Peter Jones, Managing Director of Third Millennium, chose
Evolution both for its proven technical prowess, and its
reputation for working in highly sensitive areas: “We have been
operating for some 20 years, and due to the nature of the
business we have always been relatively covert,” he explains.
“You won’t find our name emblazoned on the building, in fact we
are situated in a business centre, in a multi-tenanted building.
Our part of it has always been secure but it was time to upgrade
to a higher level of security.”
Evolution devised a solution based on the S2 NetBox VR
Quatro, a security management system which allows all access
control, event monitoring and video surveillance to be managed
through a single, user-friendly browser interface. Key
personnel can therefore quickly and easily manage who comes
in/out of the premises, with a full audit trail. Two cameras
monitor the front and rear entry points, with access controlled
by four Third Millennium RX Series RFID readers. The RX
Series is a range of readers that combine sophisticated
technology with clear aesthetic appeal, available as a gloss finish
polycarbonate/ABS in either black or white. A subtle feature of
the reader is the shadow line backplate, a simple design
mechanism which offsets the reader a few millimetres from the
mounting surface, making the unit appear to ‘float’ against the
Being Bluetooth-enabled readers, Third Millennium employees
can choose what type of pass they use. Some are opting for a
‘traditional’ Third Millennium card, whilst others are using an
app on their mobile phone or their smart watch.
Having specified Third Millennium readers on many occasions,
Evolution knows the technology well, including its integration
capabilities. John Wust,
Joint Managing Director at Evolution, says that they also
understood their client’s need to keep the existing IT
“We centred the solution around the S2’s Quatro since it can be
deployed as a standalone IP system that does not require
software or client licences, ideal for this kind of site. Keeping it
separate from the IT system was also something that the Third
Millennium team wanted.”
With a single box design, which minimises installation and
maintenance costs, and with a licence for up to four cameras,
the system has proven both being flexible and economical.
