Electronic card, badge, or key fob:

One of the most common forms of business access control for employees; users simply swipe their card or badge on a reader at the access point to gain entry. Because these are pre-activated and issued to individuals they can be tailored to allow employees access only to the areas they need to go, improving internal security and restricting sensitive areas. Proximity tags, cards, and also magnetic swipe cards can be customised with your company’s logo. And, with the addition of Photo ID technology, may also serve as a photographic ID Badge.

Biometric Access Control:

These, sometimes controversial, systems provide the highest level of access security. Readers are placed beside an entry point to scan fingerprints, handprints, or retinas and compare them to an approved database.

As above Access control can 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, or doors can be set to actually unlock during a designated time frame(s).

Standalone – or offline Access Control

This type of system may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is typically gained by using a PIN or electronic token, and there is no need for a PC or network. Unlike a networked system, a standalone system is programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door on the system.

This solution is ideal for smaller sites with a relatively small number of users. Token management is simple and the system can be extended easily as your requirements change.

Networked access control

Networked access control offers centralised control of your building from a PC. This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors instantly, such as opening doors, barring tokens, and building lockdown. Other benefits of this type of system are flexible control, allowing different permissions for individuals or groups of users.

Ideal for sites managing multiple doors and users. The system can be extended easily and offers advanced features such as event reporting, energy-saving, and integration with CCTV and other systems.

Choosing your system

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, access token, or Biometric pass, is unable to enter.

Door Entry Solutions

A door entry system is an important component of your home or business security infrastructure. Operating on its own, or in conjunction with your other Clear Sound Security Access Control Systems Coventry, it serves as a doorbell and intercom to give you control over who enters, and at the same time, acts as a secure system for controlling access to the premises.

Typical solutions include:

Audio buzzer system: Visitors press a button that activates an internal control unit. The user can then speak to the caller through a telephone handset or microphone. If access is granted the operator simply presses a button that releases a lock on the door. This is the cheapest and most common security door system.

Video door entry system: In addition to the above, this combines a security camera at the point of entry and a monitor at the control panel (as well as a buzzer and microphone), allowing the operator to visually identify the visitor.

Mobile phone and internet door entry systems: Again, in addition to both the above, this is an increasingly popular option which permits remote control of entry points from anywhere in the World with an Internet connection.!

Other considerations
Fitting a ‘trades’ button will allow access to some areas at certain times and will be useful for deliveries and collections.

Do you need to make accommodations for disabled users? Can a wheelchair user reach the buzzer or be seen by the surveillance camera?
