    Which Different Types of Access Control System Can We Offer?

    There are a number of different types of system available ranging from basic stand alone models to hi -tech cloud based networked solutions that can be linked to several locations. Some of the access systems most requested by our customers include:

    Basic Keypad systems: Keypad systems do exactly what they say on the tin, they require visitors or staff members to enter a PIN Number to gain entry to your premises.

    Swipe Card System: This system requires you to supply approved personnel with swipe cards enabling them to gain entry to restricted areas, the only downside of this system is the possibility of key cards falling into the wrong hands.

    While both these systems have now been overtaken by more up to date technology they are still a viable and affordable option for businesses with a single entry and exit point.

    Proximity Systems: These systems require no physical contact with the entry or exit point. Access is gained by the use of a card or key fob that provides a keyless entry solution.

    Biometric Systems: With the advance in technology Biometric Systems have become a more affordable option for business owners. Our biometric systems are based around fingerprint and retina scanning.  this system offers an enhanced level of security and is the perfect choice for sites with multiple entry points.

    How Would Access Control in Southport Benefit Your Business?

    The main aim of any access control system is to improve security. By installing an access control system you can minimise any risk to your staff and protect confidential business information. This can be achieved by only allowing access to people with prior authorisation.

    Irrespective of whether you are a small business with a single entry point or a large organisation with multiple locations we are here for you.  By installing one of our access control systems in Southport you can guarantee that your business, staff and confidential information are protected at all times.

    The installation of an access control system will allow free movement around site for authorised persons, meaning the level of security is increased without any negative impact on everyday business activity. So, whether you are a smaller concern or a multi-national operation, an access control system can offer you the peace of mind that your business remains secure at all times. To find out how one of our tailored access control systems can be of benefit to your operation contact our expert team today.

    Which Access Control System Best Meets the Requirements of my Operation?

    This is obviously dependent on a number of different factors. These include things such as the level of security you need, number of access points, whether you are a single or multi-site operation and obviously the budget you are working to.

    For a small business looking to control just one access point then a stand alone basic keypad or swipe card system would be perfectly acceptable. This cost-effective solution will allow you to adequately control access to your site and mean you can easily differentiate between approved and non-approved personnel.

    If you are looking to control access to a number of locations or areas within them, a networked system is probably more advisable. Networked systems can be managed from a centralised location and cover a number of areas within one or more sites.

    If this sounds like the best option for you then proximity or biometric systems would provide the ideal solution. Whatever type of system you feel meets the needs of your organisation and budget we are here for you. Here at Argus Fire and Security we have a comprehensive range of access solutions suitable for organisations from the commercial, industrial and public sectors. Why not take advantage of our no obligation on site survey and ensure you get the access control system in Southport that matches your exact requirements.

    Testimonials - What Our Clients Say

    “Great service from Argus. On the initial assessment they identified that a burglar could break down our door and enter most of the office without activating the alarm. Argus installed a completely new system for much less than I was expecting, and with their remote monitoring that’s linked to a key holder we have total piece of mind.”

    Mr Nigel Finch

    HR Department - Wigan

    “I purchased a Burglar Alarm from Argus in 2014 for my home. Stephen dealt with this transaction and was very helpful, the system was fitted by Damion to an excellent standard and I am very happy overall with the finish.”

    Mr C Hill

    “After a recent break at my home I contacted Argus Fire and Security to provide a quotation for CCTV. I was very impressed with the rapid response and detailed quotation, the system purchased is of high quality and I particularly like the remote viewing capability from my mobile devices.

    Thank you Argus for a job well done, please pass on my appreciation to your staff for their diligence and professionalism.”
