When site security is important to you, turn to the door entry systems we provide. Based in Wymondham, Norfolk, our company offers access control solutions that help you to monitor and restrict the movement of people, assets, and vehicles in and around a building.
Our access control systems help you to prevent the loss or damage of capital assets. What’s more, they reduce the risk of personal injury incurred to staff and visitors.
The applications of access control solutions range from controlling a single entrance-door, to the management of a large, complex site. Physical access control systems are comprised of 3 main components.
A physical barrier prevents unauthorised personnel from gaining entry, and provides a means of granting access electrically. Physical barriers include:
In the case of doors, a magnetic door sensor may be added in order to monitor the door’s position. An alarm may then sound if the door is left open, or is opened illegally. Because there is no means of ensuring that only one person passes through a door when it is unlocked, strict rules must be put in place to deter authorised users from allowing unauthorised people access through the door.
The physical barrier is electronically controlled by an access controller. This is combined with a reader in order to identify people by their credentials. This may take the form of a keypad, card reader, or a biometric scanner. Together, the access controller and reader provide the ability to identify an individual and authorise or deny their entry.
Access controllers may either be stand-alone, or networked to a master PC-based access control system, which manages the user database for all access points. The PC-based system software can update each controller with the details of each individual’s access rights.
PC-based access control systems offer a number of additional facilities, such as providing a user’s location, carrying out attendance and usage monitoring, visitor management, and automatic door unlocking during emergencies or specifically assigned periods.
The identity of an individual is determined by a credential. This could be a PIN code, access card, key fob, or a unique human characteristic such as a fingerprint. In some cases, combinations of 2 or more of these credentials may be used to identify the person. As with the fire alarm systems we install, we offer a number of services in relation to access control solutions. This includes:
Free quotes are provided for the affordable services we carry out. What’s more, every member of our team is extensively checked via the Disclosure and Barring Service.
