Types of Access Control

Access control installation greatly improves the ability to manage your facility’s security by replacing traditional keys and locks with electronically controlled doors. No longer will you need to replace the locks when an employee loses a key. We can design an access control system that will monitor and control entry to your building and provide a database for reporting. At the helm of your card access system, you can easily add, edit, or delete users, or even grant employees certain levels of authority to access specific parts of your office. Temporary access can also be granted for maintenance, cleaning personnel, or any other business needs. A few of our access offerings include:

  • Fingerprint Readers: Any type of fingerprint authentication solution is highly beneficial for small and big businesses because it takes away having to carry an extra card and they are quickly processed
  • Proximity Card Readers: This option is affordable and easily integrated into any access control system and allows you to choose which type of security you’d like to use—i.e. smart cards, fobs, or tags
  • Smartphone Bluetooth Systems: This is a type of keyless entry system, allowing you to unlock doors with your phone using Bluetooth. With many, you won’t even need an internet connection to get into the building
