Access Control Systems

Access control enables you to control who has access to your building.

Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating more security risks

Why do I need it?

Access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost-effective way of controlling any commercial security system, designed for anyone that has access to your building and when that access is allowed.

All businesses have to protect assets and employees whilst allowing people to move freely in the areas that they need. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost or stolen.

How does it work?

Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter. If necessary, doors can be set to unlock during a designated time frame.

Access control also offers flexible control over users’ access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.

Which system is
right for you?

Managing your building

Networked access control

Networked access control offers centralised control of your building from a P.C. This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors instantly, such as opening doors, barring tokens and building lockdown. Other benefits of this type of system are flexible control, allowing different permissions for individuals or group users.

Typical applications are schools, offices and healthcare facilities.

Standalone – offline access control

This type of system may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using a PIN or electronic token and there is no need for a P.C. or network. Unlike a networked system, a standalone system is programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door in the system.

Typical applications are small business premises, storage units and sites with limited users.

Web based access control

Access control with a web-based user interface means that a system administrator can access  the software remotely, from anywhere with an internet connection. This system supports all the functionality of a networked system, with no network required. A benefit of this system is combined surveillance and video management from one unified platform.

Typical applications are schools, offices and healthcare facilities.
