    We do the fundamentals of restricted access better than anyone, but we don’t stop there. Our team of experts specialise in making technology work for you through intelligent integrations that support all areas of your business. For us, physical access control is about more than just a key fob; it's about using technology in the constant battle to protect your business, your premises, and your assets- all in the simplest way possible. 

    Use your mobile phone to gain access to everything from the front gate through to hidden cupboards. 

    Stop illegal parking and keep cars safe with number plate recognition integration. 

    Biometric access can use fingerprints and facial recognition technology to control entry. 

    Solve HR headaches by keeping timesheets and conducting roll calls with integrated access software. 

    Doing more than just controlling access

    Our key strength is our ability to integrate the latest access control systems with the rest of your business to increase security and efficiency.

    Take your security to the next level with an intelligent cloud based solution. Designed to give complete freedom and flexibility of access privileges, in a user-friendly way. 

    These intuitive systems are perfect for managing large sites, or for companies with multiple premises. Get real-time insights and don't clog up your server room! 

    Our Access Control solutions are able to be fully integrated with your door entry systems and CCTV systems, allowing entry to areas of your site based on facial recognition, eliminating the need for fobs or keycards. You'll also have the potential to use number plate recognition (ANPR) to control access to car parks.

    Another key advantage of CCTV integration is that the system can identify if an individual is in a restricted area, before immediately notifying the relevant members of staff. Plus, it can notify you of tailgaters and be used to visually verify access events! 

    Using number plate recognition technology, our integrated systems pair with your gates and barriers to keep your car parks safe. The management system retains a log of all entrances and exits, along with a timestamp for when they were on your premises.

    Ensure all entrances are secured with automatic electronic access control, ensuring locking of doors when the alarm is set. 

    If an alarm is triggered when you are away, you'll be able to lock all internal doors and trap intruders on-site until the police arrive. 

    With access cards or control systems you can keep timesheets for staff members and even conduct roll calls, giving you a clear understanding of who is on your premises, what time they arrived, where they have been, and what time they left.

    What's more, you can even receive notification and keep a log if individuals are arriving late, staying late, or attempting to access off-limit areas, giving you a better overview of your staffs' whereabouts. 

    Need a visitor on-site just for the day? Control where they can access and for how long they will be granted entry, increasing security and helping you manage your premises from afar.

    In today's current climate, knowing who was on your premises and when is invaluable in the fight against COVID-19. Our systems make contact tracing incredibly easy and can help reduce the risk of infection, and operational downtime within your organization.
