Not all doors are equal, and some will need a little extra attention when it comes to security. Perhaps your business is open to the public and you need a secure area for staff only, or maybe you need to log data relating to who has accessed certain areas of the building at particular times; whatever the reason, door access control may be the answer to keeping your business premises secure.

There are different types of door access control, with one of the simplest being a mechanical digital lock. This comes in the form of a push button combination lock with a set code that you provide to employees and staff who are authorised to enter the area. These basic systems can also offer a key override, multiple user codes and anti-tamper functions, and are simple to install and use. 

Installing a proximity reader is also an option – this system allows users with a programmed card to enter the area, remaining secure even if the card or access fob is lost as it can be quickly and easily deleted from the database. You can install either one or multiple proximity readers, all of which can be accessed using the same card. For an added layer of security, readers that also utilise a PIN code are available. 

For general access or entry, a dome button may be the answer. These are often found in schools, hospitals and buildings where exits and entry doors are in constant use. Fire doors can be secured with a break glass unit, dissuading staff and the public from using the door as a general exit route. 

Door access controls can also be set up with an activity tracking system. These systems manage all your access controls and doors over single and multiple sites, giving you the peace of mind that you are able to remotely protect both your employees and your clients or customers, regardless of your own physical location. This type of system is intuitive and scalable, allowing for further facilities, doors and users to be added at any time.
