An access control system allows you to control who has access to your premises.
Access control systems can operate gates and barriers, and doors, and are available in various installations including telephone and video entry systems or computer-controlled systems operated by magnetic cards or proximity readers.
These security systems can be installed in a variety of premises including offices, factories and industrial sites, schools and colleges, hospitals, hotels and care homes. An access control system can also be connected to Building Management Systems (BMS). LNS Fire & Security install and maintain a wide range of access control systems to suit your specific site and provide a safer and more secure environment for you and your employees.
How does an access control system work?
Each type of access control system works differently and a free site survey will help to determine the most suitable type of system for your site.
There are three types of access control system:
A standalone system - the simplest, most cost-effective system
A door entry system - this enables entry for visitors who can’t access the site via the access control system
A PC-networked system - that allows access to be tailored for each individual and is controlled via the relevant software
Each system enables complete control over who can access buildings and sites and specific areas can also be set up to be accessed by selected people
