Site and workplace security are a serious concern and controlling how employees can access a restricted area can be important to their safety and security. Depending on the level of security required, the RS Components range of access control kits contains everything you need to vet and allow door entry in all workplace applications.
What is a Door Entry System?
A door entry system or access control system is a way to control the access to and from an area and includes both residential and commercial buildings. There are a lot of door entry systems on the market and they usually are a mechanical or electronic way of locking a door until a correct trigger is activated. The trigger could be several things such as an:access code for a keypad - code or password needs to be keyed in manually for entryintercom system - very common and come in many designskey card or fob - found in proximity readers, can be replaced easily if lostbiometric trigger such as fingerprint identification - are very secureThey are effective solutions for ensuring entry only to vetted personnel, with codes or ID cards able to be customised in ways that typical physical keys are not.The RS Range of door entry systems has vandal proof card readers and code locks for outdoor locations, as well as sophisticated fingerprint readers.
What is a Video Door Entry System?
A video door entry system has an added video camera element that allows you to visually confirm the entrant. With video door entry, you can use digital video or CCTV to monitor the physical characteristics of the would-be entrant before unlocking the door with a remote lock-release. They are typically paired with phone or intercom systems so that an entrant can be further vetted by audio if needed. Video door entry systems are excellent ways of remotely vetting security doors that might have unexpected or unverified visitors.
Random Stop and Search
No matter how sophisticated a door entry system, sometimes security presence and physical searching is unavoidable. Random stop and search person selectors are ideal for when you need to search people before entering or exiting premises. Whether you are concerned with personnel bringing contraband items into a restricted area or leaving with company property, it is sometimes impractical and often aggravating to search everyone coming or going. A random stop and search person selector can be set to only alert at pre-selected intervals, ensuring that there is no discrimination in the searching process.
