What is Access Control?
Access control is quite literally about controlling access to your premises, or a specific area of your premises. Instead of the old lock and key method, access control secures your building electronically. With tokens and readers instead of locks and keys you say who has access, when they have access and where exactly they can have access to.
- Complete control
- Flexible security
We understand that access control does not need to be complicated. Our access control systems look professional but are also really easy to use. Paxton systems are so user friendly they require minimal training to run and are designed to make life as easy as possible for you. They are so convenient, you will wonder why you ever used anything else before.
More Key Features on Access Control
Huge bunches of keys are common for some sites, but if the keys get lost imagine how many locks would need replacing to make your site secure again. The cost implications are huge. With access control, each staff member, or visitor, is issued with one token or card to gain access through any door, gate or barrier.They simply present their token at a reader and access is permitted or denied, as appropriate. There is no need to change locks if someone loses their token. This gives you total confidence that your premises stay secure, something that is just not possible with a lock and key system.
• Decrease the risk of opportunist theft• Track who was where, and whenThe security and safety of your staff and assets is serious business. No one wants to think that staff are at risk while at work and there is no better way to protect them than with an intelligent, reliable, access control system.Should an incident or a crime take place on your premises, your access control system allows you to isolate certain areas and even track who was in a particular area at the time.
• Restrict areas to certain groups or individuals• Protect your building• Save money on night-time securityWith access control you can restrict specific areas of your premises to certain groups of staff or individuals. You can even give users access rights specifically for certain times of the day or night.This gives you control over the security of your site around theclock and means you do not need to spend money on night-time security. You can rest assured that your premises are protected, even outside of normal working hours.

Instead of searching for your keys when you approach a door, imagine if it automatically unlocks as you reach it. Our hands free technology is a great way of improving movement around a site or simply getting you out of the rain faster!The reader on the door picks up the signal from your token, be it stored about your person or in a handbag or pocket. The door then unlocks without you having to present your token directly to the reader.
- All doors are controlled directly from one or more PC’s

- Pinpoint where staff members and visitors are in the building
