Managed access control

State-of-the-art access control systems


Create a safe environment for staff and customers in your business with a comprehensive access control system. Allowing only authorised personnel into specific areas helps deter opportunistic theft and prevent accidents. Commercial access control equipment can be integrated into other security infrastructure, such as your intruder alarm system, ensuring your business is completely protected.

Physical access control


Effective access control solutions ensure that the only people who can unlock a door to a specific area are those with the correct credentials to do so. Instead of conventional door locks that work with a key, personnel must have the right kind of access card or device, which has been pre-programmed with our access control software.

Alternatively, a unique physiological or behavioural characteristic of each member of staff can be used as an extra level of security within the door controllers. As fingerprints and irises cannot be transferred to others, biometric access control is becoming increasingly popular for commercial properties.
