Secure Access offers the latest IP-based technology when designing, installing and servicing access control. Secure Access has the latest network (POE) door controller for a single door that is scalable to hundreds of doors as well as stand alone and basic access control systems.


Choosing an office access control system is an important financial decision for most companies. The cost is  important, but the access system also needs to match your business and office security requirements and be completely reliable and secure.


Secure Access is focused on designing  access control systems that are fit for their purpose, containing the important features that are necessary for well-run organizations. Our commitment has resulted in our products winning a reputation for reliability and ease of use.


Implementing an access control system can feel like a big change in company practice. The access control should give the benefit of additional security without requiring time-consuming administration. At Secure Access, our systems are intuitive and straight forward to administer. The increased security is a benefit to all.


Secure Access is committed to making sure that our customers are satisfied – from the design stage, installation, and ongoing service, it is our goal to make sure that we meet our customers’ expectations.


Stand alone access control


This type of system may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is granted by using a code or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a proximity, smart card, or mag-stripe card, depending on which type of reader is installed.


Stand alone access control security systems are programmed at each door. If credentials need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door on the system.


Typical Applications:

  • Small business premises
  • Small Storage units
  • Community Swimming Pool Areas
  • Any small or medium sized site requiring access control



SERVER based access control systems


Referred to as 'PC based' or 'IP Based' access control, these systems may be used to control one or many doors in a building. Access is granted by using a code, keycard, badge, RFID prox card, or PIN with a keypad. PC-based access control offers central control, via a network.


This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors. An attempt to use a keycard at an access control system can be barred from all of the doors instantly. Another benefit of this type of system is flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals or groups of users.


Reports may also be generated to see who went where and when. Many systems allow control of additional buildings via existing LAN/WAN or remotely managed over the internet. PC-based central monitoring systems are increasingly being used to control other services within buildings, for example burglar alarm system, fire doors, lighting, security gates and parking gates.


Typical Applications:
  • Small/medium Businesses
  • Large corporate Businesses
  • Multiple-site Businesses
  • Government buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Universities
  • Parking Decks/Parking Lots


Computer based access control systems are great for medium to large sites as they make managing large numbers of doors and users easy. The system can be extended very easily, and advanced features such as event reporting and integration with video security systems and other systems make investing in a card access system much more than just a replacement for a bunch of keys.
