Access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible, and cost-effective way of limiting who can access your building and when that access is allowed. All businesses have to protect assets and employees while allowing people to move freely in the areas that they need.

Access control solutions

Which access control system is right for your business?

A reliable access control system is essential for the security of any business. Choosing the right type of access control for your business can be a bit of a minefield. Businesses looking for new access control systems have three main options regarding where the system resides and how it is managed.
Option 1

Standalone access control

Standalone access control is usually one or two small units wired directly onto a door panel to control access to the door. There is no need for a PC network; you don’t have to secure every door within your building, only those you wish to. User tokens can be added to the system in seconds by presenting an enrolment card to the door. The administration is straightforward and can be done in a matter of minutes.

Staff and visitors are issued with electronic tokens instead of keys. If someone loses their token, they can be simply barred from the system by presenting a shadow card to a reader. This ensures that if the token is found, it cannot be used to gain entry and compromise the security of your building.

Option 2

Net2 access control system

Paxton Net2 access control system is designed with simplicity and is easily scalable depending on your current or future needs. This system enables immediate execution of commands issued from the PC, such as opening doors, barring tokens, and building lockdowns. Networked access control offers flexible control, allowing for different permissions for individuals or groups of users.

Our Net2 software is intuitive and comes equipped with a range of features that move beyond the basics of locking or unlocking a door, enabling a more comprehensive approach to access control.

Option 3

Paxton10: All-in-one access control

Paxton10 provides next-generation access control and video management on a single platform. Combining access control and video management on one user-friendly online interface means you can easily manage your site’s security. In addition, a simple web-based user interface represents a system administrator who can access the software remotely from anywhere with an internet connection.

All-in-one access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost-effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed. In addition, video management provides surveillance of your site, increasing your facility’s security without complicated integrations.

Frequently asked questions

Here are the most commonly asked questions and queries when businesses like yours are considering one of our commercial access control systems.

Access control pertains to the application of policies and protocols that govern the admission or denial of an individual’s physical entry into a building, location, or specific sections and chambers. These mechanisms can be employed on any limited entry points, such as portals, fences, gates, turnstiles, and even elevators. They can either be a rudimentary, autonomous system that controls one or two doors, or an intricate, interconnected network that encompasses numerous structures.

The access control system is designed to regulate the entry of individuals into a specific site or building, as well as into specific areas within those premises, and to do so efficiently without causing delays for authorised individuals.

We offer various options to cater to your business’s access control needs. Our solutions include top-of-the-line door intercoms, card and proximity tokens, and cutting-edge biometric and facial recognition technologies from leading manufacturers.

It also serves as a safety measure by preventing unauthorised individuals from accessing hazardous areas or equipment, mitigating associated risks.

Today, we examine the best cloud-based access control systems available on the market, aimed at aiding business owners and property managers to select the appropriate system for their buildings and communities.

Cloud-based physical access control systems, or smartphone-based systems, enable users to manage and gain entry to a building via cloud-connected applications and devices. These systems have replaced on-premises access control systems due to their ease of management from anywhere using desktops and mobile devices. Cloud-based systems are also easier to use and scale, reducing operational burden and cost. Additionally, they offer a wide range of additional features and overcome the limitations of keycards and other legacy systems.

A proximity system is an access control mechanism that utilizes encrypted RFID technology in the form of fobs, cards, or other devices. When the device is presented to the reader, the reader transmits the device’s code to the access controller. The controller then compares the data presented to the system’s database and either permits or denies access based on the match. The system’s database can hold highly specific information, allowing access only to designated individuals at a particular time or date for a specific door or location.

We understand the importance of implementing secure access control systems to protect your business premises. Our proximity system solution, which utilizes encrypted RFID technology, provides reliable and efficient access control, ensuring only authorized individuals gain entry to restricted areas. Our team of experts can assist you in selecting the most appropriate proximity system to suit your specific needs, and we provide installation and maintenance services to ensure your system functions optimally.

Access control systems come in different configurations, and choosing the right one for your business can be overwhelming. Here are some of the access control system options we offer:

Basic or Standalone System: This system is a straightforward way of controlling one or two doors and consists of a physical server and a connected computer located on the business premises. This system is ideal for smaller businesses or specific locations that don’t require connectivity to other sites.

Networked System: This system involves two or more systems networked over a building, several sites, or even worldwide. It is managed centrally with a data server and networked computers. This system is perfect for businesses with multiple offices or sites.

Local Cloud-Based System: This system holds data in an on-site server and is accessed via a portal website. The hardware and system are on-site and accessed through the cloud from anywhere. This system is suitable for smaller companies requiring flexibility.

Cloud-Hosted System: In this system, the access control server is managed at an off-site data centre, while physical access control, such as key card readers, is still in place on-site. This system is ideal for businesses that prefer to outsource the management and maintenance of a networked access control system or need the flexibility to manage many remote sites.

Fully Managed Cloud System: This system involves a monitoring centre that provides real-time building access and fully manages your access control. It is entirely cloud-based and enables a remote security company to manage the complete system for you. This system is ideal for businesses that require an entirely cloud-based system.

We understand the importance of selecting the right access control system for your business. Our team of experts can work with you to determine the most appropriate access control solution to cater to your specific needs.
