Access control and door entry systems allow you to control who enters your premises and when. This can be done via a user operation ie: answering an audio or video call unit or automatically using a wide range of reading devices locally at the entrance or connected via a central control unit.
British security Technologies can design a system to suit almost all situations and budgets. The most common devices used are either audio or video call points at the entry door linked through to a reception area. A visitor will call on arrival and the person responsible will answer the call and typically open the door using a button on the answer unit.
The next level up from this will combine the call points with either a card / token reader or pin code unit. This will ensure that regular staff can move freely through the entrance without having to call and visitors can be screened.
Moving on from this would be a control system that reads cards / tokens at many doors throughout the premises. Each member of staff would have a unique card and the system can be programmed to automatically allow only authorised members of staff to enter areas that are necessary for their work and restrict them from unnecessary areas. These systems would typically sit on the existing IT network and be controlled via the receptionist, who could also issue visitor passes that only allow the access to the necessary parts of the building.
In very high security applications ie: IT rooms and very sensitive areas, the above systems can be combined with biometric readers to ensure that the correct person is entering the area.
British Security Technologies can specify the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of access control systems. Whether you require a new system or your existing system needs upgrading, we offer a full range of services.
