    Quality access control solutions

    Access control has been around for some time. It started with a lock and key – nowadays you will find intercoms dotted around. However, at WLS we have been at the forefront of its developing technology for over two decades. We work closely with Honeywell Security UK – the leading experts in the industry. This allows us to offer some of the top technology from Paxton Access and other top manufacturers. If you’re looking for the best, you’ve come to the right place.

    Why A Fob Access System?

    Key fobs and cards are an extremely common keyless method of authentication. They’re reliable and easy to use. Once programmed, a person can simply touch or swipe to unlock doors. They give you a great level of security and mean you can provide people with different levels of access. Much simpler than an easily forgotten key code or ring of a dozen keys for each door. Programming them allows each person to have access to different areas too. This increases security greatly and you’ll always be aware of who is who.

    Keyless Entry Systems

    There are three main keyless entry types. You’ll find them in different properties but they’re all used to secure rooms, assets and buildings. You might want to invest in:

    • RFID (radio frequency identification) – operating proximity door locks, via a card reader or fob access system
    • Biometric access control systems using fingerprint or retina scanners
    • Access control card readers, using smart cards or swipe cards

    The one you choose will depend on what security level you’re looking for, your budget and your personal preference. Have a chat with one of our team today to see what we can do for you.

    How Do They Work?

    When the fob is close enough to the reader, the system verifies the person’s programmed information and will either grant or deny entry. Depending on their credentials, they may be allowed in certain areas of a building but not others. This is why it’s such an effective security measure. You can keep areas restricted to certain personnel and make sure no one goes further than they should. Some systems have a greater range than others, with active proximity tokens working up to two metres away. Others may require direct contact.

    Advantages Of A Fob Access System

    Many businesses are switching to keyless access systems because there are so many benefits.

    • Convenience – Completely customisable and only one fob or card is required for an entire building. No lost keys!
    • Access records – Keep note of who accessed a room or system and when. Great in case of an emergency.
    • Security – Reduce unwanted intruders and theft with a tight security system.
    • Access multiple areas – Centralised control, allowing people to come and go freely with ease and move through the building efficiently.
    Remote Access

    Often when running large businesses, you may have offices in different locations that need to be managed. Fob access systems can be updated from anywhere in the world. (You just need an internet connection.) This allows managers to update credentials and increase or decrease security levels for certain people and areas of the building at any point. Should you need visitor passes created or to enrol an employee – it’s so simple to create new cards or fobs for them so they can get to work!

    Biometric control allows you to identify users by means such as fingerprint scanners or facial recognition. This eliminates the concerns of a fake ID or simple intercom systems when you can’t see them. They are a quick and easy to use alternative that can be programmed to work in all conditions. Even if a finger is greasy, dirty or cold, our biometric access control systems will recognise the person. It’s the option that gives you the highest level of security and peace of mind.

    IP based video door entry systems work with remote access for live video and playback via a mobile smartphone or tablet device. they can be integrated with access control systems for a complete security solution. This allows you to see and speak to the visitor before granting access. This style of intercom usually has an access button on the same console, so everything can be done from one place. Many people prefer this as it gives you an extra level of precaution from a voice-only intercom.

    TDSi’s DIGIgarde PLUS is an attractive and cost-effective fingerprint reader combining all authentication modes: PIN, card and fingerprint into one unit. This allows you to choose your required level of security. DIGIgarde PLUS has a high-resolution optical sensor and an extremely quick matching algorithm. An IP65 rating means it’s water resistant, allowing internal or external installation. Other features include tamper protection and PoE (Power over Ethernet) ready, so it does not require a separate power cable.

    Emergency call-out for a faulty house alarm. Boss Matthew was very helpful on the phone, especially given my vague description of the system. The engineer was round within a couple of hours and sorted things very quickly. 10/10 would definitely recommend.
