Access Control & Intercoms

Access control enables you to control who has access to your building and at what time. Moreover, we have solutions that help avoid problems with mislaid or stolen keys meaning staff can easily get into work without having to wait for the keyholder.

    Protection At All Times

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

    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 even more security risks. We supply and install keypads, card readers, biometric/fingerprint access panels, intercoms, key fobs/proximity cards and other forms of keyless entry units for all types of businesses such as restaurants, cafes, schools, offices and shops.

    Control Who Enters

    Most public facing businesses leave their entry doorways unlocked which in extreme cases can endanger your staff. Remotely controlled access control systems allow staff to come and go as they need with no risk of unlocked doors and ensure any non-staff visitors are vetted before entering.

    Account for Staff on the Premises

    Another bonus of access control systems is that at any given time you know exactly who is in the building as the access control system can tell you who has entered and left in real time. This is imperative in times of emergency as fire registers can be quickly generated in the event of evacuation.

    Our updated solutions are a more cost-effective and convenient way of securing your property. Not only does it provide you with greater control of your access points, but it also allows you to control how many people you can manage in your building.

    As the name suggests, this type of system allows staff and visitors to use either their smartphone, wearable electronic devices and tablet to gain entry to a room. Users will download an access control app which then allows them to use their device as the credentials to move freely throughout your building.
