Access Control Systems

Access control systems are designed to permit the free flow of authorised movement into any premises or location, whilst denying entry to unauthorised visitors or personnel.

MCS Security offer a range of access control systems which can be operated through swipe cards or pin codes, proximity readers or even biometric readers where the device reads the users finger print.

The added benefits to your business are:

  • Full control of who goes where and when on your site
  • Central control of all your doors and secure areas on your site
  • Important high security areas are monitored and secured easily
  • All staff movements are recorded, with detailed reporting
  • Monitor your doors with site graphics and CCTV integration
  • Reduce the risk of forced unauthorised entry into your building.

Systems can be designed to control one to multiple doors or locations.

The Access Control can be integrated into other systems such as CCTV Cameras and Security Alarms Systems within the building.

It can also be used as a time clock for employees to log on and off.

The Issues of Using Locks and Keys

Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys may also be copied, creating even more security risks.

All businesses, whether small, medium or large, have assets that need to be protected from theft.There is also the issue of protecting staff and their property. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.

A Smarter, Easy to Use Solution

Electronic access control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets. Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again.

Cards are issued to allow access through the controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or just not returned by someone who leaves your company.

Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access card is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a designated time frame.

Access control can also offer flexible control over users' access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.

In addition to protecting property, an access control system can provide peace of mind for personnel who are able to work in a safe environment.

Reduce Costs and Track KPI's like Employee Attendance

Reports produced in connection with an Access Control system can provide details of where personnel and visitors are in any site at any time for fire evacuations. An access control system can even manage employee time & attendance.
