Best types of door entry system
Once you've considered the answers to the above questions, it's time to decide what type of door entry system is best for you! Let's take a look at some of the door entry systems we offer and explore why they might be the best for your property...
Key Fob Security Systems
- One of the simpler door entry systems on the market, key fob security systems are easy for everyone to use. You'll often find key fob door entry systems outside blocks of flats, although they can be useful when employees need to pop in and out of the office frequently too.
Video Door Entry System
- Ideal for monitoring your property while you're away, our video door entry systems are the best for residential properties. You can see who's ringing your doorbell without having to answer the door, and you can keep a close eye on people behaving suspiciously.
- Security barriers are a physical blockade between your property and the outside world. Generally, this might be considered a bit of a strange choice for a residential property where most people would install a gate or fence. Security barriers work wonders in private car parks, making them the best door entry system for commercial properties.

A smart card access control system is a type of security system where each authorised individual is issued a unique smart card that gives them access to various places and/or services.
Smart card systems can be used in many different ways on all sorts of different premises. Examples include:
- Workplaces with restricted / staff-only areas
- Private car parks
- Apartment buildings and other residences
Smart cards also make it easy to identify who is entering / leaving your premises. This can be useful for keeping attendance records and other administrative tasks.
