A sophisticated security system equips federal agencies or other government organisations with the power to control, manage and monitor the movement of all relevant employees and visitors.


Financial institutions such as banks face numerous challenges such as possible breaches, theft and trespass.

The reliability of the physical security of a bank also plays a role in forming the perception of the institution's reputation.

What is an access control system?

An access control system is a security system that enables the controlled movement, accessibility, and monitoring of people on a site.

A control system utilises different technology such as readers, biometric scanners, key fobs, or other tools to regulate who can enter a certain premise and when. It is also worth investigating what access control policies you want to employ.

Why are access control systems important?

Access control is important to protect your site and its personnel from unwanted breaches and threats. Access control provides a central authority system that can control the level of access available to occupants and at varying times. Access control ensures employees, visitors, contractors, and personnel on site feel confident and safe.

This type of business security can protect access to sensitive information, company data or rooms that should otherwise be restricted. Access control systems heighten the security in your building and control and grant access based on specific needs.

What are examples of access control?

Physical access control dictates the access, movement, and monitoring of physical spaces. Many types of access control can be employed like doors with security locks, keypads and a key fob.

Access control software such as biometric scanners with fingerprint recognition and facial scanners that determine user credentials can also be incorporated.

How do I install access control?

Access control should be installed with the expert help of security professionals to ensure it is properly integrated into your existing security setup.

There are also a wide range of factors to consider based on your individual business or organisation's needs. How do you want your central authority to function? What access control policy do you want to use?
