Keyholder – when the alarm is triggered, the alarm receiving centre will contact your chosen keyholders
Text Alert – when the alarm is set off, an SMS message is sent to notify your appointed contacts of an intrusion

They are one of the most used security systems for businesses right now and there is a wide range of types of systems readily available to match your requirements.

Types Of Access Control Door Systems
There are different kinds of Access Control Door Systems and each one works differently. Elite Fire & Security are experts in the types available and will be able to recommend the ideal system for your property, business, needs and budget.
Keypad Entry Access Control Systems
Key Fob Entry Access Control Systems
Card Entry Access Control Systems
Fingerprint Entry Access Control Systems
Retina Entry Access Control Systems
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access Control Systems
Keypad Entry Access – This form of access control system makes use of a keypad with a numerical keypad for entering and exiting. Businesses and homeowners can change the numeric code at any time if necessary.
Key Fob Entry Access – This is when somebody who has been given permission to access a property or an area uses a wireless remote control key fob to open the entry point, similar to a car key fob. The fob is battery operated.
Card Entry Access – Access to an access point or door is controlled by a keycard that contains a security token. An installed keycard reader opens and closes the door when the card is touched against the reader or swiped through a swipe reader.
Fingerprint Entry Access – Biometric (fingerprint and retina) entry access control systems are growing in appeal because they are considered more secure due to the fact that the entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to any individual who isn’t authorised. A fingerprint entry access control system allows authorised individuals to gain access very quickly while preventing unauthorised persons from doing so.
Retina Entry Access – Biometric (retina and fingerprint) entry access control systems are a growing market with lots of organisations using them due to the fact that they are seen as more secure access systems. The entry code, fob or card can not be passed on to anyone who isn’t authorised and only allows access to authorised individuals.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Entry Access – Access control systems that use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) allow entry to authorised individuals. Radio waves are sent out by the RFID control reader, and radio waves are transmitted by the RFID tags (cards/fobs). Whenever the card is within range, the antenna within it captures the waves and broadcasts a notification that contains a unique number from the chip, which allows access.
Access control door systems have the same purpose of enabling or rejecting entry or exit but they do so in different ways. You can have an access control door system in a business property, home or if you have land that is protected by secure fencing and gates which allows you to control who enters. The systems can be developed and fitted to doors, gates, barriers, turnstiles and much more.
Access Control System Benefits
They allow quick and easy access or entry to any individual authorised
They restrict entry to those who are not authorised
You can identify who has entered and when (record of entry)
They can regulate areas within a building or property quickly and remotely
They are difficult to break into and gain entry without having the authorisation
They offer protection to people inside a building
