Access Control Systems And Automated Door Entry For Your Business

All businesses, from small, medium to large, have valuable assets that need to be secured from theft. It is also important to protect your employees and their belongings. It is not unusual for building that are still secured with locks and keys to be open all day. This leaves them vulnerable to security breaches.

At Mittens Electrical, our service suite covers a wide range of quality security systems. Each designed for specific protective functions. Depending on the nature and value of the asset you want to protect, we have

different options for you to choose from. We can also install an automated door entry for your commercial establishment. Our products include:

Keypad Entry

An entry level access control system starts with a digital keypad entry and electric clock. They are a convenient and cost-effective way to control access. If an employee leaves the company or has a status changed, the code can easily be changed.

We install Keypad entry systems, which are mainly programmable codelocks for 1 – 2 doors. They can set up to the same code for both doors or separate codes, depending on your request. Keypad entry systems also feature door control and alarm output. Our company has various automated keypads for doors, gates, barriers and delivery bay shutter doors.

Swipe Card Entry

The next level of access control is swipe cards or proximity cards. These can be used to enter secure locations or rooms. Do you have a high-level research lab or a sensitive factory plant? Swipe cards provide a swift entry for authorised personnel only. They are low cost and easy to maintain. Swipe cards can easily be installed on many entry points including doors, gates, barriers and delivery bay shutter doors.

Each card is a single unit, therefore restriction to certain rooms is easy. In conjunction with a PC system, card holder movements can be logged when they enter access controlled doors. Mittens Electrical believes in delivering quality at all times. Our swipe card entry systems are first-rate and perfect for any business type.

Proximity Readers

The beauty of contactless technology is that it promotes convenience and saves time. Mittens Electrical installed proximity readers offer a complete, low-cost method of access control. The distinctive identification programmed into the integrated circuit device reduces the possibility of copying or damage.

Our proximity readers also comply with the Disability Discrimination Act. They can include doors, delivery bay shutter doors, gates and barriers. The standard read range of our proximity cards is approximately 100mm. But we also have longer ranges that allow a hand free entrance. They are great options for sophisticated work environments including factories and labs.

Biometric Entry

Biometric entry systems are probably the most secure form of access control in a high security company. They work by utilising an individual’s unique characteristics such as fingerprint identification, voice recognition or retinal scan.

At Mittens Electrical, we store a template of certain physical attributes in an electronic memory. They automatically authenticate the holder when they leave or enter a building. Biometric security systems are extremely reliable because each unit is programmed to just the one individual.

We also provide PC based control, door intercom systems and video intercom systems depending on the peculiarity of your business premises.
