Electronic Access Control
Electronic access control provides the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets. Installing an access control system means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or just not returned by someone who leaves your company. Barred tokens will not allow access through the controlled doors.
Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a designated time frame.
Access control can also offer flexible control over users’ access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.
PC based systems
PC based access control solution from Complete Security, will give you control over who has access to your building. With Complete Security you can control access on hundreds of doors for up to 10,000 users. Our software allows you to manage this in a logical and intuitive way.
Complete Security is one of the most economical access control systems on the market. There are no hidden costs such as per seat licences; the software may be loaded on all the PC’s in a building if required. The standard version of our software, which includes all the features most organisations will need, is free.
Perhaps even more importantly your investment is future proofed. Adding additional doors in your building as your needs change is straightforward and cost effective. In addition, all new innovations to the system are designed to be backward compatible. Software upgrades are free.
Complete Security software gives you full control over the system from your desk. Any instructions given to the software are immediately updated at all the doors. Adding users, barring users and changing users’ access permissions are all done from the PC quickly and easily.
If your company has several buildings, access to all of them can still be controlled from one location. Complete Security will control many buildings in different locations using TCP/IP across your existing network.
Access permissions may be set individually or by department. This makes setting up different permissions for different groups of people quick and straightforward. Some areas may be restricted to only a certain group of users. Shift patterns may be set for departments, and those permissions are allocated instantly when a new user card is issued.
An events screen allows viewing of ‘real time’ events as they are happening. Monitor who is where in a building, if doors have been left propped open or a door been forced. In addition to the ‘live’ information, reports can easily be created from the software.
Complete Security software can be loaded onto one or many PC’s in your organisation. Different administrative rights may be given to each user. Perhaps the Systems Manager would be the only person who could alter users’ access permissions, but it may be convenient for your receptionist to be able to issue cards for visitors. Up to five PC’s on a network may administer the system simultaneously.
Complete Security may be used with a choice of PROXIMITY, Hands free, CARDLOCK (magstripe) readers and TOUCHLOCK keypads. Complete Security systems are also compatible with a range of 3 third-party readers, including biometric readers.
Complete Security has even more to offer!
All of the above are the essentials of a good PC based access control system. Complete Security however, offers even more functionality.
Nominate those who have permission to unset and set the intruder alarm. When they present their token to the door, the alarm will unset prior to the door unlocking. If the alarm is set, only these nominated people will be able to access the building. This easy-to-use feature helps prevent false alarms.
Through its easy-to-use ‘Triggers and Actions’ function, Complete Security can send SMS or emails when a specified trigger happens. Get an SMS message sent to your mobile if a door is forced; have an email sent to you when staff arrive late!
View IP camera images
See who is at the door, before you let them in. View what is happening throughout your building.
Control lighting and heating
Turn lights on when you arrive in the morning; turn them off when the alarm is set at night – easy with ‘Triggers and Actions’.
Hands free access control enables any Complete Security door equipped with PROXIMITY readers to achieve hands free ranges of up to 2.5m. Doors are converted to hands free simply by wiring a hands free interface between the reader and control unit. Hands free tokens are then supplied to users who require hands free access. Both standard Complete Security and hands free tokens will work on a Complete Security-equipped door.
Door entry systems

The video telephone allows the resident to view a caller at the entrance, speak with them and have control of their access.
