Standalone Access Control keypads
A cost-effective way to control access through just one door or gate. A standalone access control keypad is exactly what it says – a one-door controller with a keypad. This door access keypad allows the user to enter a passcode or PIN, and an integral relay operates an electric lock to unlock the door. Typical features include a timer setting to allow the door to remain unlocked for a number of seconds, allowing the use to pass through, before the lock engages again.
Multiple users can be set up so they can all have their own PIN, which allows the operator to disable a single user’s PIN, without affecting other users (e.g. if the user has left the company). By incorporating a standalone key pad to control access to an entry point, this is by far one of the simplest and most cost effective system, as it’s easy to install and operate and does not need hours of reading to understand how to install, unlike a “full-blown” access control system with sophisticated “bells and whistles”.

Standalone Access Control Systems for Single Door Entry
If you need more control than a standalone keypad can provide, but don’t need an enterprise-sized access control system, then a standalone access control system may be the right solution for you. These systems offer features like user access history, reporting, time zones, and holidays, all of which can often be managed from your computer, to eliminate the need to go to the keypad each time you need to add or remove a user.
Standalone access control systems are a great option for businesses with a single door or a small number of doors, that don’t need to be connected to an intricate centralised system. They are also a good choice for businesses that need to add access control to an existing building without having to make major changes to the infrastructure.
Remote-Managed Access Control
Remote-managed access control systems are a great way to improve security for UK businesses and property owners. These systems use the mobile phone network to transmit data, which makes them ideal for medium and long-distance installations. As a result, these are a popular choice for gate entry systems as they eliminate the need for long cable runs.
Remote-managed access control systems easy to manage, as you can use a website portal to update settings and add or remove users. This means that for door entry in apartment blocks, you don’t have to be on-site to make changes, which can save you time and money.
Web-Based and Cloud Access Control Systems
Traditionally, access control systems were based on a central server that ran essential software and communicated with door controllers at each door. However, there is now an efficient alternative in the form of a cloud-based system that can be managed via a website.
With a cloud-based system, there is no need to purchase and maintain a computer server. This can save businesses money on hardware and maintenance costs. Additionally, cloud-based systems are automatically updated by the manufacturer, so businesses don’t have to worry about keeping their systems up to date.
If your business doesn’t need the top features of an enterprise-level access control system, then a cloud-based system may be a good option for you. Cloud-based systems are scalable and can be easily adapted to meet the needs of growing businesses.
We offer a range of cloud-based access control systems for UK businesses. Contact us today to learn more about our solutions and how we can help you secure your premises.
Networked Access Control Systems for Enterprises
In an enterprise environment, there can be many doors and people to manage. To effectively manage all of these, you need a central point of management, which is where networked access control systems come in.
Networked access control systems connect doors and users to a central database through a network. This allows for centralised management of access control, as well as all concurrent access by multiple administrators.
Networked access control systems are also typically the most feature-rich systems available, making them an ideal choice for enterprises that have complex requirements.
If you are considering a networked access control system for your business or site, we recommend that you take a look at the systems we have chosen. The features can seem almost infinite and sometimes confusing, so if you need any help, guidance, or just some information, please let us know as we will be glad to help.
