SST recognise the importance to your business of ensuring that authorised employees, contractors and visitors have free and easy access to their designated areas, while the unauthorised are denied entry. Control of access reduces the threat of opportunist theft and malicious damage.
An SST access control system can be tailored to your requirements in this area utilising multiple technologies such as swipe cards, proximity tokens, PIN entry keypads and sophisticated biometric devices. Systems can be designed around existing hardware to provide an effective solution for a single or multiple sites.
Our systems can also provide flexible control over users' access rights, perhaps restricting some internal areas to those who have a specific need to be there or restricting by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.
An entry level access control solution would be specified for a stand-alone site, such as a small office based business or independent retailer, with limited employees and visitors and a relatively low risk of forced entry.
A typical stand-alone access control system could consist of a control panel, several door controllers, swipe or proximity cards/tokens and readers, and push to exit buttons. The system could also incorporate video or audio entry devices to verify individuals accessing a protected area with the capacity to accommodate many hundreds of users.
A high level access control solution could be specified for a stand-alone site or a group of sites, such as a school or a business with satellite offices, linked together by a communications network. The application could manage access for hundreds of employees and visitors in an environment with a risk of forced entry.
A typical system would consist of a central PC based controller, door controllers (some remotely networked), swipe or proximity cards/tokens and readers, push to exit buttons and possibly photo-badging software and printers. At points of access, video/audio entry devices could be used to verify identity. The system would be capable of monitoring hundreds of doors and could accommodate several hundred users. All devices would be hard-wired together.
