Access Control Systems from IDS Security

Who can open your doors? The decision is yours.

Access control systems (also known as door entry systems) can be installed at any entry or exit point to ensure that only certain individuals can pass. Depending on the type of system in use, authorised personnel may unlock doors by swiping an ID card, entering a passcode, or even scanning their fingerprints.

Whether you’re looking to secure a single ‘staff only’ area or set up a multi-site network of computerised access control points, the IDS team can design and install a system that suits your requirements. Give us a call on 029 20 753 251 to request a quote for your door entry system.

Access Control FAQs

What is access control?
Access control is a method of controlling and regulating:
  • Who has access to a property
  • When they have access
  • Where they can enter / exit the premises
An access control system from IDS Security will help to keep your property safe, reducing the likelihood of theft and discourage unwanted visitors. We can also enable you to monitor and record the movement of visitors.
What access control options do IDS Security offer?
We offer a range of access control systems, including simple single-door standalones as well as multi-door systems, card readers, PIN pads, key fob systems, biometric readers, wristbands and smartphone technology.
What’s the difference between access control and traditional locks / keys?
An access control system allows you to decide who can and can’t enter your building, just like a normal lock-and-key system . The main difference, however, is that an access control system allows you to disable any cards or fobs that get stolen, lost, or if the holder no longer needs access to the premises. Access can be revoked without having to worry about a physical key being handed back in.
Where can access control systems be installed?
An access control system from IDS can be used wherever it’s needed. Common locations include doors, gates, garages and lifts. The great thing about our access control systems is that they do not have to be installed in just one place – they can be used for multiple entry points.
Are there different levels of access?
Levels of access to our control systems are completely customisable to your needs. We will work with you to identify the levels needed to make your system work best for you.
Is there a limit to the number of people I can store on the access control system?
The number of people that can be stored on your access control system is again completely customisable. Depending on your requirements, we can offer a system that stores thousands of people or just a few authorised individuals.
What is a biometric reader?
A biometric reader is a system that can uniquely identify a person using biological traits such as fingerprints or facial recognition. Biometric readers help to increase security, since the profile scan will need to match the electronic profile stored on the system’s database.
Will my access control system fail if there is a power cut?
Your access control system will have a battery backup for all readers and locks, so in the event of a power cut, they will still be usable.
What happens if a card/fob/wristband is lost?
In the case of a card/fob/wristband being lost, your system administrator will be able to disable access so it can no longer be used with your system unless it is reactivated by the administrator.
What if there is a problem with my access control system?
If you experience any issues with your access control system, please contact us on 029 20 753 251, where one of our engineers will be able to assist you 24/7. Your system is able to be managed locally or via our online diagnostics where we can help to remotely fix any problems you may have. We also offer any reports and auditing that you may need.
