Access Control Systems

Access Control System Design & Installation


All businesses, regardless of the size i.e. 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 locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the risk for opportunist theft and malicious damage.

Access control systems provide the most efficient and convenient 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 just not returned by someone who leaves your company.

Access control can also provide flexible control over an individual’s 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.

An access control system can provide numerous business benefits as follows;

Keeping a Record of Who is Entering or Leaving

In the case of an emergency, your access control system reports will be able to tell the authorities who was in and out of the office at a particular time.

Time and Attendance

Controlling your employee access can also be a virtual time clock for managing employee time. Knowing when your employees are in the office, and when they have left can be integrated with time and attendance systems. Some packages can even integrate your electronic security system with time clock software to track and record your employee hours.
