Access Control

Door Access Systems

When you are choosing an access control system, it is a very important decision for most companies. Not only is the cost important but the system needs to be reliable and match your needs for your business.

Access control lets you control who has access to your building and when. Essex Alarms can install an electronic access control system that will provide you with the most convenient and efficient way of securing your building.

All businesses have assets that need to be protected, this also applies to the staff you have in the building and their personal property. Any premises that are left open and unlocked are obvious targets for theft and malicious damage.

Installing an electronic access control system will mean that you won’t ever have to get keys copied or change old locks again. With this kind of system tokens are used and issued to allow any access through controlled doors or turnstiles. Tokens can be barred from the system if an employee leaves your company or if someone has lost or not returned a token. Any barred tokens will not gain access through any controlled doors.

Access control can also offer flexible control over users’ access rights. An example of this would be when staff can gain full access at the main entrance to a building but will have restricted access to internal areas if those people do not have a need to be in that area. Access can also be restricted by certain times, only granting access to particular personnel at different times of the day.

One of the access systems Essex Alarms supplies includes features that are necessary and important for any size of organisation. The  systems we fit have award winning reputations for ease of use and reliability.

This system type can also be used to control access on more than one independent door in your building(s). Entry access is gained by using a PIN or numeric code on a keypad, or by a magstripe token or proximity. This all depends on the type of reader that is fitted.
