Aiphone JO System kits growing in popularity

JO System kits from Aiphone are increasingly being specified by specialist gate suppliers who want the robustness of their automated gates to be matched by the quality and reliability of a video entry system.

The competitively priced JO System is available as a ready to install kit comprising a stylishly designed 7” monitor with touch controls, a gate intercom station and a power supply. If required, there is also an option to purchase an additional monitor.

Arden Gates is typical of many of the companies involved in providing elegant gate systems for luxury homes and who are sourcing the video entry component of the automated gate solution from Aiphone UK Ltd.

Founded in 1991, Arden Gates has grown into one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automated gate systems. Based in Solihull on a 1.5 acre site, the company manufactures its own gates in steel, timber and aluminium, and offers a complete automated gate service from initial design advice, through to the handover of a completed tailor made installation.

“We have installed a number of the JO System kits over recent few months and having found how easy they are to install and how good they look, I would expect to install a lot more in the future,” said Dave Young a Director of Arden Gates. “A high percentage of our orders are received as a result of referrals and recommendations. We are understandably protective of our reputation for providing our customers with solutions that will operate hassle free for many years. The peace of mind that comes from knowing that Aiphone back their products with a three year warranty, has been a major factor in our decision to use the JO System kit.”

Arden Gates had for many years sourced video entry products from an Aiphone competitor. Having established a close working relationship with Advanced Access Ltd, the leading independent trade distributor of Access Control and video entry systems, and an authorised distributor for Aiphone in the UK, Dave Young was persuaded that the price/performance ratio of the JO System kits merited a change.
Commenting on Dave Young’s satisfaction with the JO System kits, John Peddle, Director of Advanced Access said: “We distribute intercom and video entry systems on behalf of a large number of manufacturers. As such, we need to offer independent, objective advice as to what products are the most suitable for specific applications. We are very pleased that the advice and encouragement we gave to Arden Gates has resulted in them working successfully with JO Systems kits which are helping them to profitably maintain the high levels of service they always strive to provide to their customers.”
