    Integrated access control with building management systems

    Integrating Commercial Access Control Systems with Powerful Software

    When fitting out premises with several controlled gates or doors it is usual to link them to a PC-controlled system. Intuitive and sophisticated software links the card-issuing system with a personnel database. This allows security staff to issue fobs or cards, linking them with personnel and other information and defining personalised or role-based access levels.

    Time and attendance packages can be added to the basic system to allow effective and efficient access control management. Cards can also include photo ID using fast ‘magicard’ printers, with the computer linked to a webcam and instant card printing to speed up security clearance for new starters. Our team will discuss the right options with you for your organisation when we meet.

    Access Control FAQs

    Access control security encompasses a system specifically devised to manage and regulate entry to physical spaces, such as buildings, rooms, or facilities. Its primary objective is to guarantee that only authorised individuals gain admission to secure areas, thereby thwarting unauthorised access and bolstering the overall security of the facility.

    Utilising diverse methods like access cards, biometric door entry systems, or PIN codes, access control security systems verify presented credentials against a database of authorised users. If the credential is validated, access is granted; otherwise, unauthorised users face denial of access or may trigger an alarm, alerting security personnel to a potential security breach.

    Integration with other security systems, such as surveillance cameras, intrusion detection, or intercoms, is common in access control security. This integration offers a comprehensive security solution for a facility, enabling security personnel to closely monitor access activity and promptly respond to potential security threats.

    Access control security finds widespread application in diverse settings, including government buildings, airports, hospitals, industrial facilities, as well as commercial and residential buildings. It stands as a crucial element in overall security measures, safeguarding individuals and property from potential security vulnerabilities.

    There are various reasons why implementing an access control and door entry system in your business or facility may be necessary. Here are some of the most prevalent ones:

    Improved security: Door entry systems for businesses offer a superior level of security compared to traditional locks and keys. They can be programmed to permit entry only to authorised personnel in specific areas, while also maintaining a record of individuals entering and leaving. This feature aids in preventing unauthorised access and serves as a deterrent to theft and other criminal activities.

    Convenience: Access control systems prove to be more convenient, particularly for larger facilities or businesses, compared to traditional lock and key mechanisms. Instead of dealing with the distribution and management of keys for each door or area, these systems enable centralised access management. Additionally, the system facilitates easy addition or removal of access for employees or visitors as required.

    Compliance: Certain industries or facilities, such as healthcare establishments or data centres, are obligated by law to implement access control systems. These systems assist in ensuring that your business or facility adheres to relevant regulations or standards.

    Cost savings: Over time, access control systems contribute to cost savings by reducing the necessity for re-keying locks or replacing lost keys. They also mitigate the risk of theft or property damage, thereby minimising the likelihood of expensive insurance claims.

    Peace of mind: The assurance that your business or facility is secure and well-protected can offer peace of mind to both you and your employees. Access control systems play a role in averting security breaches and provide a documented history of access activity for potential incidents or investigations.

    In summary, an access control system can deliver numerous advantages to your business or facility, including heightened security, convenience, compliance, cost savings, and peace of mind.

    The frequency of maintenance for an access control system is contingent on various factors, including the system type, usage intensity, and environmental conditions. Generally, it is advisable to engage in professional maintenance checks for access control systems at least once annually to guarantee their proper functionality.

    Several factors influence the recommended service intervals for an access control system:

    Usage level: Systems that experience frequent use may necessitate more regular maintenance checks to verify the optimal functioning of all components.

    Environment: Access control systems exposed to harsh conditions, such as extreme temperatures, moisture, or dust, may require more frequent maintenance to safeguard all components from potential damage.

    Type of system: Different access control systems may exhibit distinct maintenance requirements. For instance, biometric access control systems might need more frequent checks to ensure the accurate capture and verification of user data by biometric readers.

    Manufacturer recommendations: The manufacturer of the access control system may offer specific maintenance guidelines based on the system’s design and features.

    In addition to the yearly maintenance checks, promptly addressing any issues or malfunctions with the access control system is crucial to prevent further damage or security breaches. Regular cleaning and testing of your office door buzzer system also play a vital role in ensuring proper functionality and proactively averting potential problems.
