The Links Lifestyle Resort, created by Sea Spirit Lifestyle is a 199-home resort in South West Rocks on the mid-north coast of NSW. Located near the mouth of the Macleay River, South West Rocks offers residents easy access to nearby recreational areas that include stunning surf beaches, Trial Bay and the Macleay River, which opens up a myriad of possibilities for boating and fishing enthusiasts. The area is steeped in history and is situated on the traditional lands of the Dunghutti people.
Opticomm deployed a smart city network solution. Resident, staff, and community facilities are connected to the Opticomm fibre network which is distributed across the resort from a central Smart City Hub™, which houses the application server computers. Community assets are connected via Smart City Nodes™, many of which are housed in over 36 smart poles which are being deployed in the construction phase between stages 5 – 12.
The Opticomm network is connected to the fully automated front gate as well as the pedestrian entry, and a dedicated golf cart gate which can be securely accessed by a code, card, or the vehicle number plate recognition system for frictionless entry. Visitors to the resort can use a video intercom system from any of the gates to contact residents via the Opticomm network.
Solar panels across the resort are connected to the Opticomm network to enable solar power to be managed on hot days, enabling sustainable electricity generation while ensuring a stable energy grid.
As well as being able to access a wide range of facilities, residents at The Links are connected to the Opticomm fibre network that offers internet speeds up to 1Gbs from over 50+ Retail Service Providers. The Opticomm network supports a wide variety of applications across the resort – including a community TV network for interactive virtual yoga classes, CCTV for safety, and security and community Wi-Fi with a customised splash page.
When complete, the resort will be home to a vibrant community of over 350 connected residents that live in a safe, secure and sustainable environment enabled by Opticomm Smart City technologies and connected by the Opticomm Fibre Network.
