Commercial Access Control

ADT's commercial access control systems keep organisations and large enterprises across Australia safe and secure.

Commercial access control features


ADT's access control system provides you the feature to determine which people have access to specific areas on the premises.

For example, you might want an executive to have access to an area with a higher level of security. Grant access to the relevant people.


Access control can grant access to a premise at differing times.

For example, you might want to restrict access to an office premises after close of day or grant gym users 24/7 access. ADT sets access control settings based on what best suits your business needs.


ADT gathers the relevant knowledge from access control usage.

Notifications and data are generated based on who enters a designated area at a certain time. This feature might benefit you if you are, let's say, a bank, and want to gather insight on when employees access specific assets.

Access control also provides a reporting function that can compile the relevant data based on the insight you want to gather. Keep aware with ADT's access control.
