Access control provides security by giving flexible control over who is allowed to enter a building. A typical access control point, can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or other physical barrier, where access is electronically controlled.
The solutions we supply and install will keep your buildings, employees and assets secure. From one door up to hundreds of doors across multiple sites, our engineers can design and install a system to meet your needs.
Door entry solutions provide greater security to residents and buildings through caller verification. Speech based systems are available that can meet the requirements from a block of retirement flats to city wide schemes that link multiple tower blocks into one centrally managed system, including control of CCTV equipment.
Standalone 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 numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a proximity or magstrip token, depending on which type of reader is fitted.
These systems are programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door on the system.
PC Based Access Control
Referred to as ‘PC based’ or ‘Networked’ access control, these systems may be used to control one or many doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, by presenting a proximity or magstripe token or by ‘possession’ with hands free tokens depending on which type of reader is fitted. PC based access control offers central control, via a network.
This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors. A token can be barred from all of the doors instantly. Another benefit of this type of system is flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals or groups of users.
