Access Control / Door Entry Systems
Access Control Systems allow authorised persons, residents or staff to securely gain access to a building or area without the use of a key. They are particularly useful in the Commercial sector keeping the building secure but allowing key staff access to restricted areas saving time and lots of money on keys.
Systems start from a single Key Pad or single Card Reader connected to a single lock release going up to a Computerised multi user/card reader system that will even control the Car Park barrier.
Door Entry systems are another variation on the access control theme. They consist of an Outdoor Station connected to an Internal Telephone or Telephones controlling the Entrance Door Lock. Visitors gain access by pushing the buzzer of the Flat or Office required, the resident answers the call on the Entry Phone and presses the "lock release" button if he wants to let them in.
Video entry systems work in the same way except there is a Camera in the Outdoor Station and a Small Monitor Screen in the Entry Phone allowing the Resident to see who is outside.
Another type is Video Entry combined with an Access Control System. This provides ease of access for residents or staff but still maintaining a good degree of security.
Safe & Sound Security Systems has fitted many of the above systems over the years and will be pleased to install a system for you.
Most of the main brands including Paxton, Bewator Fermax, Bitron, Comelit, Videx and Addams Rite (to name but a few) have been used.
