We strongly advise installing access control as it allows you to have total control over who can enter your building.
Buildings secured by locks and keys are usually left unlocked all day, presenting the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage. Electronic Access Control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets.
Any door controlled by the system automatically locks when it is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter.
Access control also offers you flexible control – e.g. all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but internal areas may be restricted if required.
If an employee leaves, or loses their entry fob, this can be easily deleted from your system with minimum disruption. Compare this with the hassle created by lost keys and locks having to be changed, and you will see access control is the ideal solution for your business.
There are two main types of Access Control system that we recommend:
Standalone access control
This is used to control access on one or many doors in a building. Access is gained by using either a numeric code, a PIN with a keypad or swipe card/fob. Systems are programmed at each door, so if access needs to be barred or codes changed, then this must be completed at every door on the system. We find this system is most popular with small business premises, sports clubs and storage units.
PC based access control
This is used to control one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using either a numeric code, a PIN with a keypad, or by a swipe card/fob. PC based access control means that commands given are sent to each of the doors instantly. Another benefit is flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals or groups of users. Reports may also be generated to see who went where, and when. We find this system is most popular with small / medium and large corporate businesses, multiple-site premises, Government buildings, school and car parks.
