Access Control

Electronic access control provides a secure, convenient, flexible and cost effective way of controlling who has access to your building at what time. Access control gives organisations, the reliable security they need with added useful features.

All businesses – from small, medium to large – have assets that need to be secured from theft. There is also the issue of protecting staff and their property. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day, which can often open up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Electronic access control provides the most efficient and cost effective way of securing your building and assets. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or simply not returned by someone who leaves your company. Barred tokens will not allow access through the controlled doors, which will eliminate the need to get all of your locks changed when keys go missing.

With our range of product partners we can design, install and commission access control applications, ranging from controlling a single entrance door to managing a large complex site.
