Access Control

London Fire & Security’s consultative approach to access control is to find the ideal combination of new and emerging technology that will protect your people, buildings and assets.

We’ll study how staff and visitors access your premises and then recommend an approach that meets your exact needs and the threats you face. This may involve your employees identifying themselves with a pin code, swipe or proximity card, or presenting themselves to a biometric reader.

Most importantly, our system designers and engineers will focus on the overall benefits an electronic security system will offer for single or large/enterprise level multi-site locations.

We’re acutely aware of compliance regulation and we will create layered access control that combines multiple mitigating security controls to protect your resources, data and property.

We can protect you against the ‘insider threat’ and employee malpractice such as card pass-back and ‘buddy clocking.’ We work within the Equality Act (formerly DDA) balancing protection against intruders with ease of entry for legitimate individuals.

London Fire & Security creates layered access control solutions combining multiple complementary approaches such as:

Keypads or contactless proximity readers and fobs (inc. MIFARE)
Biometrics (palm, facial, iris, voice & gesture recognition)
‘Right to be there’ profiling on employee role, seniority, zone & time of day.

Our systems can give rapid return on investment (ROI) by doubling as time & attendance reporting.

Our designs are scalable and we’re agile in moving with trends such as Cloud, Access Control as a Service (AcaaS) and Near Field Communications (NFC). London Fire & Security swipe card systems can also be used for cashless vending and ‘follow-me’ printing, technology designed to improve the operational aspect of your business.
