Access Control Systems

What is Access Control?

Access control is quite literally about controlling access to your premises, or a specific area of your premises. Instead of the old lock and key method, access control secures your building electronically. With tokens and readers instead of locks and keys; you say who has access, when they have access and where exactly they can have access to.

• Simple
• Modern
• Complete control
• Flexible security

Halls understand that access control does not need to be complicated. Our access control systems look professional but are also really easy to use.

Why choose access control instead of locks and keys?

• Convenient
• Economic
• Modern
• Secure

Huge bunches of keys are common for some sites, but if the keys get lost imagine how many locks would need replacing to make your site secure again. The cost implications are huge. With access control, each staff member, or visitor, is issued with one token or card to gain access through any door, gate or barrier. They simply present their token at a reader and access is permitted or denied, as appropriate. There is no need to change locks if someone loses their token. This gives you total confidence that your premises stay secure, something that is just not possible with a lock and key system.

With access control you can restrict specific areas of your premises to certain groups of staff or individuals. You can even give users access rights specifically for certain times of the day or night. This gives you control over the security of your site around the clock and means you do not need to spend money on night-time security. You can rest assured that your premises are protected, even outside of normal working hours.

Instead of searching for your keys when you approach a door, imagine if it automatically unlocks as you reach it. Our hands free technology is a great way of improving movement around a site or simply getting you out of the rain faster! The reader on the door picks up the signal from your token, be it stored about your person or in a handbag or pocket. The door then unlocks without you having to present your token directly to the reader.
