SmartSecure Adopted by South Wales Social Landlord

Smartsecure Tai Tarian Project


As the result of a successful tender, Carl F Groupco is supplying hardware to Tai Tarian, one of the largest social landlords in Wales with responsibility for over 9,000 properties. The prestigious contract which supports all Tai Tarian’s hardware needs for  maintenance, renewal and new build across its full housing stock includes SmartSecure, Carl F Groupco’s electronic door locking and access control technology.

Carl F Groupco’s Smart solution is being used by Tai Tarian for independent living accommodation and the adaption of properties for social needs. A major advantage of SmartSecure reported by the social landlord is in the area of access: where tenants have mobility constraints, the ability to control who enters the property is a practical solution that gives peace of mind.

Commenting on the adoption of SmartSecure, Steve Meredith, Tai Tarian’s PVCu Production Manager said:

“The technology is empowering. Tenants find it easier to use than traditional locking systems because they don’t have to move to open the door. Carers and family members also benefit from ease of access.

“Support is important, particularly with adoption of Smart technology, and the service from Carl F Groupco is outstanding. The Regional Sales Manager and his colleagues who support us are excellent – the team is extremely responsive, they answer all our questions and always follow up on our enquiries.”
