Whether it’s unwelcome parents-in-law, salespeople or someone that you consider an actual risk, you should be able to control who can enter your property. No one likes being surprised by an unwanted guest, and if you are worried about how secure your property is, it may be time to start thinking about access control systems. If you’re not sure what access control is, we can help! Keep reading to learn more:
What Is Access Control?
Access control is the security system installed that allows you to regulate who can enter a property. This could be control over a single internal door or a fully computerised multi-site network of control points. By choosing a method in which people can enter a property, you choose who has the authority to enter - even without someone manually guarding the door or carpark, etc. Access control can be installed in residential or commercial properties, wherever you think may benefit from this extra security measure.
What Access Control Can I Install?
There are various options for an access control system. At IDS, we have a selection of advanced access control systems to choose from, so each of our customers can pick something that suits them and their specific requirements. Some of the systems we supply are:
Key Fob Security Systems
This popular choice is a simple way to install an access control system to your property. A key fob system reduces the need for a manned security system as those provided with fobs can let themselves into the building. The fob works as an electronic key, however, unlike a key you can control when the fob authorises or declines access without having to change your locks. This is great for residential and commercial buildings where there are a number of people who need access.
Biometric Access Control Systems
Biometric systems may sound futuristic, but they are very much a part of today’s security options. They authorise access through human characteristics such as fingerprints or palm prints. This cutting edge technology gives you access control over who can enter the building without you having to authorise their attempts each time they try.
Automated Barrier Systems
If it’s a car park rather than an entrance you would like to control, an automated barrier system is perfect. These barriers can be controlled by radio, or as a part of a fully integrated access control system. If you want to manage what cars enter a car park this is the system to choose.

Access control systems are the perfect way to limit an individual's ability to enter a certain area or property, without restricting accessibility and flexibility for those with granted access. Some of our most popular solutions in this area, are our key fob security systems, which can be used to provide adaptable security to homes and businesses.
Some benefits of key fob access control systems include:
