Access Systems

Access systems, though simple in function, are complex in their technology. An access system is designed to allow authorised people to enter and to restrict access to unauthorised people. Pinkerton Security are specialists in systems integration, call us for an obligation free assessment.

This is achieved by installing keypads or proximity card readers to entry points.  These are the means that determine if access is approved or denied.  The door in question will have an electric lock, this lock will de-energise if approval is granted thereby allowing access.

An access system can be as simple or as complex as needed.  A simple system can be as straight forward as entering a valid code into a keypad which in turn will de-energise an electric lock to open a door.  An example of a complex system would be presenting a proximity card/token past a reader (no touching parts) and the reader identifying the card as valid or not.  While in the background the data on the card is being processed by a control panel to determine if the person is permitted access to that particular door, on that particular floor at that particular time of the day and on a particular date etc.

The system can be integrated into a building’s automated electric doors to open or close at pre-determined times.  There is also the capability of interfacing into a site’s fire system so all doors will unlock in the event of a fire.

An access system is a very powerful tool to control all access into a building as required.  The complexity of a system is determined by the level of control required.  As complex as a system may appear, for a person wishing to obtain access through a door it’s as simple as swiping a card.
