Access Control

Access control is a vital tool for institutions who need to restrict access to their site to authorized individuals only. It has also become a way to track employees, site visitors and in some instances school pupils in the event of an emergency. Various solutions can be provided such as:-

  • Vehicle barriers
  • Gate entry systems
  • Key fob/badge scanning devices
  • Biometric (fingerprint) systems
  • Automated gates/bollards
  • Facial Recognition terminals
  • Number plate recognition access control gates

Smye-Rumsby Limited specialise in designing bespoke solutions to meet the needs of our clients. Many of our access control solutions use an open standard. This gives us and our clients the ability to mix and match the best hardware and software and to integrate them seamlessly with other systems, including your surveillance system. You can use them for everything from basic identification and entry control to advanced access management.

Use them with any hardware. You’re not tied to proprietary hardware. In other words, you can use open-standard components of your choice from any supplier.

Integrate them with other software and systems. Your network camera analytics solutions, HVAC solutions or time and attendance solutions, are just a few possibilities.

Save money and reduce total cost of ownership. Wherever possible we try to use your existing IP network to power your access control systems ensuring that costs are kept as low as possible.

Enjoy scalability and flexibility. Start with what you need and easily grow and modify your solution as the needs of your business change/grow.
