Our first Access Control systems were installed in the 90’s for the likes of Europcar, the two local Universities and a host of other customers that could afford the new technology. Things have changed a lot since then, and electronically restricting access to a building has become much more cost effective and feature loaded. Now we’re 25 years on, our dedicated team of Electronic Security experts take care of our extensive selection of customers, including our more recently developed intruder alarm installation and servicing specialists.
For the SME’s we offer a cost effective solution to allow staff to enter a building by use of a code or fob, all integrated into an Audio (or Video) intercom system for visitors. Larger buildings and corporations require our more advanced installations; intruder alarm segments activated or deactivated by users fobs, controlled on time zones according to their shift pattern, reporting to a H.R. compatible Time-Sheet software and all covered by an integrated CCTV system recording user movements throughout car park barriers and sensitive internal entrances.
