WHAT IS ACCESS CONTROL
Access control is the selective restriction of access to and from your facility. It is based on pre-programmed criteria in a physical access control system (PACS) that is uploaded to an access control panel (ACP). Once loaded, the access control system autonomously determines who can or cannot enter or exit and when and where they are allowed to enter or exit. When access is granted, the door is unlocked for a predetermined amount of time and the access transaction is recorded. When access is denied, the door remains locked and the attempted access is recorded. The system also monitors whether doors are forced open by means outside of the issued credential or held open longer than their allocated duration of time.

BENEFITS OF ACCESS CONTROL
Restrict access to authorized users. Manage business risk and mitigate theft or damage. Enforce policies with personnel credentials. Ensure the security of both physical and intellectual assets.
NETWORKED ACCESS CONTROL
Control all your doors easily from a simple-to-use login. Our access control systems are easy to manage and provide all the features a business needs to control access to a building. This includes automatic door unlocking scheduling, user audit trail reporting, user restrictions by hours/doors and an option for remote management of the system from a smartphone app. These IP-based systems simply connect to your existing network infrastructure, just like a computer, without special needs from IT staff.
CLOUD-BASED ACCESS CONTROL
Cloud-based access control systems can be managed and controlled from any computer, tablet or smartphone with internet access. This usually includes an easy-to-use smartphone app. You can make changes from home, on vacation or while away on a business trip. You can add/delete users, open doors and make system changes from anywhere. Cloud-based systems usually require an annual hosting license fee to be managed remotely in the cloud. Access control systems in the cloud also perform automatic backups of your data and events. If your door controller hardware fails or gets a virus, all of your data is safely backed up in the cloud. We offer cloud-based access control systems from several manufacturers including Alarm.com/Mercury, Paxton and PDK. We only partner with proven manufacturers that have solid reputations backed by outstanding warranties.
STAND ALONE ACCESS CONTROL
Affordable Electronic Locking Solutions. Stand-alone locks help you control access to your building or areas of your building at a more affordable cost. These locks can use a keypad or a proximity card to unlock the door. Some offer an audit trail report, if needed. Stand-alone locks work great when you have limited needs and budget. Managing multiple doors with individual standalone locks is not recommended.
