Access Control & Door Entry Systems
Whats the difference?
Access Control Systems
Access Control Systems are electronic systems that restrict access through a door by requiring an authorised user to be in possession of a hand hand token, or swipe card, or have to enter a code into a keypad etc
Once the correct token etc has been presented an electrically operated lock will open and allow the person to enter.
After a short delay the lock will shut.
These systems do not need anyone to be inside the property to answer a call.
Door Entry Systems
Door Entry Systems are electronic systems that restrict access through a door by requiring someone to authorise access , this is usually by the caller pressing a button outside the property, this in turn creates an alert on a handset within the property, the occupant can then speak to the caller and remotely open the lock.
|What if I don’t want to be disturbed ?||Systems can have “privacy buttons” that you can set so that callers will not be able to disturb you.|
|Can someone get in without contacting the occupant ?||Yes, you would have a key to open the lock as normal.|
|I’ve bought a system already – will you fit it ?||Yes, but please make sure it is suitable.|
|Can the electric lock be fitted to all doors?||No, this is the tricky bit, a yale type lock is generally required or the job gets much more expensive.|
A recent customer asked JEM to fit a system where her Grandmother had suffered a serious fall and had difficulty in walking, to reduce the risk of another fall we fitted a system whereby the lady could speak to a caller outside, confirm if she wanted to allow access and open the door without having to get up.
The system was fitted in half a day with very little noise or disruption.
