Networked access control systems provide affordable and expandable access control solutions for schools and small businesses. They also offer a multitude of administrative benefits, including time and attendance software, fire roll call reports, security lock down and anti-pass back. You can integrate a networked access control system with your fire and intruder alarms and expand it as your business grows. Add new users, new doors and even new buildings as and when required.
The main networked access control systems West London Security (WLS) installs are Paxton, TDSi, Vanderbilt SiPass, BPT Impro, Honeywell Pro-Watch and Salto. They are all advanced, PC based access control solutions with their own user-friendly software. They offer centralised control of sites from one to hundreds of doors and allow upwards of 50,000 users. You can tailor access rights to groups or individuals quickly and easily. You can also generate reports with a few clicks of the mouse.
Each networked access control system uses single-door or dual door architecture, so one or two doors have their own controller. That is what makes installing and expanding a networked access control system so much easier than other access control systems. You can easily add a single door to the system, regardless of where it is, with minimal programming. This is possible if the door is in a completely separate building, or even overseas.
Networked access control systems are compatible with a wide range of readers. These include proximity, keypad, HID, Mifare, biometric and marine. Marine readers are waterproof up to a depth of 30 metres, so if you want to secure the entrance to your underwater hideout, you can. You can fit one or two readers to each door, allowing read-in, read-out access control for higher security facilities. If read-in, read-out is not required, you can use any type of push to exit button to allow easy exit. Networked access control systems are also able to operate any type of electric lock.
Networked access control systems also provide advanced features for added security and easy administration. They provide site graphics, so that you can see a visual representation of your site and system on your PC. IP CCTV system integration is also possible so you can record footage of persons entering and exiting secure areas. Finally, triggers and actions allow you to specify which triggers produce which outcome. So that for example, the unlocking of a specific door triggers a specific camera to record.
