Access Control & Door Entry
Why Use Access Control ?
Access control gives you control over who gains entry to your building.
Keys also do this - so what is the difference?
When you lose a key, you have the expense and inconvenience of replacing locks and all the other keys, or you accept the building is no longer secure. With access control you simply void an individual token from the system. There is no need to replace locks or keys. The security of your building is always maintained.
Why use PC based Access Control ?
Central control - all doors can be controlled from one place
Reporting - an event is generated every time a token is used to gain access
Complete flexibility - access can be granted to users according to time and place
Integration With Other Systems
PC Based Access Control offers tight integration with systems such as CCTV and Intruder Alarms. PAxton net2 and Milestone IP CCTV Systems offer particularly functional access control systems.
In this instance you can relate a door with a CCTV camera. When the door is opened using the Access Control System it is logged. The user can then go to the Log of the door and simply click to retrieve the digital images from the camera at the point in the time of the door opening.

What does complete flexibility mean ?
Using time zones means you can allow or refuse access to different individuals or groups of people, to different doors within set time scales.
You may for example only wish factory staff to have access to offices in standard office hours. The factory staff may be set to allow access from 8am to 6pm, the office door may be set up to only allow access between 9am and 5.30pm for this group of users. Time zones can be created to give groups of people or individuals access at set times of day. Public holidays may be entered - and permissions set against these to allow or not allow access to staff. Issuing cards is simplified. If a department is set up with a time zone of 9am-5.30pm on the office door, a token issued to a member of that department automatically only allows them through the door between 9am and 5.30pm.
Manage Remote Sites
Site Manager software allows control of several remote sites !
You can bar a user from a remote site - effective immediately
You can issue cards for a remote site - effective immediately
You can issue cards for a remote site in exactly the same way as at your head office.
Net2 can be used to control access on remote sites using dial-up via modem or TCP/IP (Local or Wide Area Network connection LAN/WAN). This provides many advantages: If premises are remote from the main offi ce and are not permanently staffed then access can be controlled from head office via the connection.
