Access Control


What exactly is Access Control? Essentially, what it says on the tin. The term ‘Access Control’ refers to a system that controls, monitors and restricts all movement in, out and around a building or other location. It can cover people, assets and vehicles.

And why should you consider installing an access control system? The benefits are many and significant. For example, you can:

  • Exclude intruders who may cause loss or damage to your property
  • Reduce the risk of your staff or visitors suffering personal injury
  • Speed up access to your building as visitors don’t even need to swipe a card.
  • The system uses RIFD – Radio-Frequency Identification – to access their card. Simply be standing nearby is enough. They don’t even need to take the card out of their wallet!
