For Security You Can Depend On Since 1979


Access Control


Access Control Systems (using cards, fobs, cell phones, pins, biometrics, etc. (“credential(s)”) are designed to augment and work seamlessly with good physical security (Doors, Gates, Locks, Parking Control, Security Guards, Burg and Fire alarm systems and Video security systems). An access control system simplifies management of access to the building.

Access Control Benefits:

Restricted access can be programmed and changed instantly with the click of a computer mouse to the individual or group (i.e. managers, IT dept., payroll or HR departments, cleaning crew etc.) credential holder by door, day of the week and/or time of the day. No need to retrieve the credential or rekey the locks.

Audit trail of who came and went through each door, and when is a feature unmatched by standard locks. Used to control and track access to Entry doors, Internal Office doors, Computer rooms, Filing Rooms, Stock Rooms, Warehouses, gates and other critical business areas, a computerized door access control system is focused on helping you manage your businesses most critical assets, your employees and visitors.

No need to manually lock and unlock doors (and no risk of forgetting or not properly locking a door) at the beginning and end of business. Doors controlled by an access control system may be automatically unlocked in the morning and locked at night on a schedule, or when the intrusion detection system is disarmed and rearmed.

Standard Door keys can be lost, lent out or duplicated. Keys do not need to be made and distributed to employees or contractors. Credentials (either permanent or temporary) are issued to the respective party, and that is it. An Access Control System eliminates the need to re-key & re-distribute new keys whenever an employee is let go. The potential risk and costs associated with a misplaced or stolen key is significantly reduced.

By adding  access controlled door(s) or gates and issuing authorized persons credentials such as Card Keys, Key Fobs, Patches, NFC Cell Phones or by using Biometric readers (fingerprint, hand, retina or facial recognition):

  • You can assign an individual user’s access to (1) or many door(s) restricted by time of day and day of week
  • You can assign an individual user’s access based on a group level they are assigned (Owner, Manager, Supervisor, Sales Rep, Office staff etc.)
  • You can assign a user’s access to selected doors
  • You can remove a user’s credential from the system with a stroke of the computer mouse
  • An event log entry is create every time a credential is used or attempted to be used at the wrong time or after being fired and removed from the system.
  • Access Control greatly increases your employee’s safety by restricting access to your facility to currently authorized personnel only.
