Access control systems are about more than monitoring and controlling entry; they are an integral part of any security system and give you a convenient platform to manage your facilities. If you still secure your facilities with conventional keys and locks, consider this about keys: keys cannot track people who are accessing your building nor the time, and, when keys go missing, replacing or re-pinning locks can be extremely expensive. Access control systems solve all of these problems and many more, including:

  • Enforce a facility or area lock down from any PC, reader or dedicated key switch
  • Integrate motion detectors, glass break sensors, door contacts, panic buttons into your system for monitoring alarm conditions from a single interface
  • Call up live video in the event of an alarm when integrated with a compatible CCTV software
  • Arm or disarm an intrusion panel via the access control system
  • Trigger a wide range of devices using auxiliary output relays to trip such items as sirens or strobes all based on certain events/conditions
  • Create maps with active icons to annunciate system status, control doors, call up video, show employee photos as they pass through protected doors, and much more
  • Manage and track visitors within your facilities
