Access Control SystemsElectronic access control systems today range from standalone single door controllers to complex, networked, multi site systems integrated with closed circuit television systems, intruder alarm systems and other building control systems. Campbell Elliot Security are able to provide leading edge access control systems and advice on choosing the right access control solution, taking into consideration options such as proximity tokens or cards, biometrics, staff & visitor identification badge production, security systems integration capability IP or conventional comprehensive user traceability and muster point reports.
Card / Fob Entry Systems
Systems range from standalone to multiple readers controlled by a PC.Cards / Fobs can be programmed to only allow access into authorised areas. The system can function to provide an audit trail of events as to whom and what time personnel have entered the premises and the ability to search for personnel through a building.
Visitors to the building may be pre- booked in, badges can be printed and ready for them to arrive. Access through the building may require an escort for the visitor to gain access to restricted areas or the visitor may have been granted access to common areas such as reception and lift lobbies. Contractors working within the building can be granted access rights with the system programmed to disable their card/ fob after completion of their works.
The access door controllers can be varied from standalone door controllers that provide access to a single door to either 4, 8 ,16 access door controllers that can provide access rights up to 16 doors within the same complex. Where the access system is managed by a PC and software, should there be a loss of communication to the host PC from a local access door controller—all data information to make card access decisions and input/ output decisions are stored in the local door controller and saved in the battery back up memory, once communication is restored—the door controllers will update the host PC of all data transactions. Modular upgrades with add on readers, inputs and outputs are available should there be a requirement to expand the system at a later period.
