Access Control Systems

Our range of door access security systems covers a multitude of building types and project applications. From simple stand-alone door controllers for a single door to complex, multi-site applications covering hundreds of doors and thousands of users, our product range has been developed to meet the vast majority of applications.

With the option to integrate with other systems and database applications, our powerful access control solutions can also seamlessly integrate with other security, building management, HR and IT systems.

Standalone Systems 

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 magstripe token, depending on which type of reader is installed.

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

Typical applications

  • Small business premises
  • Sports clubs
  • Storage units
  • Any small or medium sized site requiring access control

PC Based Systems 

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.

Reports may also be generated to see who went where and when. Many systems allow control of additional buildings via existing LAN/WAN. PC based systems are increasingly being used to control other services within buildings, for example intruder alarms, fire doors, lifts and lighting.

Typical applications

  • Small/medium premises
  • Large corporate premises
  • Multiple-site premises
  • Government buildings
