What is access control?

Access control is about controlling access of staff or visitors to specific areas within your premises. Instead of the usual lock and key method, access control secures your building electronically. Access control systems can make the most of keypads / proximity devices and readers instead of locks and keys.

To gain entry, you can use either PIN numbers, Proximity cards and fobs, or for a more secure option, use the combination of RFID Proximity & PIN. These systems provide ease of use for low traffic areas or high levels of flexibility over security in heavy traffic locations such as shops, hotels offices and communal doors for rental accommodation and HMOs.
