GCCTV installs access control systems that work with a wide range of card readers, including biometric smart card, proximity, bar code and magnetic stripe. Flexible design and use of multi-technology companies allows you to mix and match technologies.
Access control is the foundation for premise control and safety. Locked and controlled doors protect property, employees, customers, networks and infrastructure. Access control systems are customized to meet your specific needs, whether it is a one- or two-door system or a comprehensive networked system with thousands of readers and card access. Customers requiring a high level of integration and awareness can integrate access control with other functions such as alarm monitoring, visitor management, photo ID badging, remote lockdown, video intercoms and biometrics.
Whatever access control solution is required, GCCTV will tailor the right solution by taking time to learn your business and your specific security concerns.
Access control systems have several advantages over keyed locks:
With keys, access is all or nothing. If an employee has a key, he can open a door any time of day or night.
With access control, you decide when the doors can be used and by whom.
If a key is lost or an employee leaves, your security is severely compromised unless you re-key all of your locks. With card access, simply tell the system to disable the card in question. All other cards continue to work properly.
Keys can be duplicated. Access cards cannot. You have no way of tracking who has a key.
Keys are anonymous. Access control systems create a detailed audit trail so you know exactly whose card opened a door and when. Your employees know this, too, which discourages inappropriate behavior.
If an employee’s access needs change, the access cards can be quickly reprogrammed. Or, if an employee leaves, you can give his card to a new employee and all the access rights will be reflect the latter person’s rights.
No more “big ring of keys”. With access control, one card unlocks every door the employee is allowed to open. There’s no need for separate keys for each lock. GCCTV even has access control solutions for unlocking lockers and cabinets and display cases.
Whether your system uses turnstiles, proximity readers (also known as card access systems), or biometric devices, GCCTV consultants and installers specialize in minimizing their impact on a location’s design without sacrificing security. The resulting system is effective, convenient, and discrete. We also have tailored solutions for lobby visitor management.
