Access Control

If you are managing a number of doors or access points and staff needing to get in and out, consider an access control system.
Increase your security, personalise access, reduce your costs and manage it all with ease!

Personalise Access

Access Control enables you to customise access for individual users

PIN codes, and proximity tokens are allocated to staff, and access areas and times can all be managed remotely, and managed in real time as necessary.

Manage remotely

Have greater control over access priveleges from where you are

Access Control frees you up from having to be on site, or location to manage access, giving you more time for other tasks. Allows you to respond to access issues faster!

Increase Security

Access Control enables management of greater levels of security

With Access Control systems doors can lock automatically, doors left open can be identified and all up you're safer. Knowing this in real time is a bonus!

Save time and money

Access Control can significantly reduce the cost of managing access and security

With no key cutting costs, or rekeying locks when keys are lost, you are already in the black. Add the ability to turn access on and off from where you are, and know who is in and out of your space, and you'll save stress as well!
