An access control system manages the flow of traffic entering, exiting and inside of your business 24 hours a day, whilst restricting access to unauthorised individuals. An access control security system also allows you to identify and manage the people or vehicles entering with information and control settings available in real-time. Personnel can be granted access using system access cards, pin codes, fobs and biometrics that are specifically programmed to allow or restrict them to certain locations.
By installing building access control systems on your commercial property you will significantly reduce your business’ exposure to criminal activity, such as thieves and trespassers, and greatly improve the security of staff, visitors and assets on the premises.
For added security, you can visually identify and communicate with visitors or vehicles by combining your access control system with CCTV and/or
intercom systems. We only recommend market leading access control systems from trusted manufacturers – Advanced technology, premium quality components and modern finishes. Choosing superior access control products gives us the ability to integrate commercial access control systems with other security products like intercoms, CCTV systems and automatic doors, as well as safety systems (e.g. evacuation, fire systems). Types of Access Control
There are three different types of access control: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), Discretionary Access Control (DAC) and Mandatory Access Control (MAC). Each of these systems is managed differently. For example, an RBAC system allows administrators to assign levels of security to users/employees granting them individual authorisation to access specific areas, assets, sensitive data, etc. based on their roles.
