Access Control

In security terms, Access Control is a system that authorises a person to enter through a door or give them access to a particular  area. Access control systems can be:

  • Wired so changes are made instantly to a single door or multiple doors on multiple sites
  • Wireless which is a cost effective approach and enables you have access control in areas where cables are hard to run.
