STANDALONE ACCESS CONTROL
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 the type of reader fitted.
Standalone systems are great for smaller sites with a relatively small number of users, token management is simple, and the system can be extended easily as your requirements change.
PC-BASED ACCESS CONTROL
‘PC-Based’ or ‘Networked Access Control’ systems are used to control one or many doors in a building. You gain access to the property 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 the type of reader fitted.
PC-based access control offers central control, via a network. Therefore, a signal from the PC is used to send commands to each of the doors. A token can be barred from all the doors instantly.
Another benefit of this type of system is that it provides flexible control, thus 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. Call us today and let us show you how these systems can protect you.
PC-based systems are great for medium-to-large sites as they make managing large numbers of doors and users easy. The system can be extended very easily, and advanced features such as event reporting and integration with CCTV and other systems make such a system much more than just a replacement for a bunch of keys.

Service, Maintenance & Support
After installation, we provide ongoing care and support.
Maintaining and servicing your access control systems are vital for upkeeping security. Overtime, as doors, latches, card readers and card become worn out, they can create a loophole in the system. Employees joining and leaving – as well as promotion – can create a messy database with out-of-date privileges. Our regular maintenance packages help keep security tight and your employees safe.
Upgrades are needed every so often. Not only does it make sure your security is the best, it also saves costs. In the long-run, it is cheaper for you to upgrade a system over time, rather than rip out and install a new one.
