There is such a myriad of choice when it comes to security entry. Most of us can’t afford the systems like the one at Buckingham Palace; several hundred soldiers with very big hats and building a moat around your premises is pretty expensive and a little archaic.
Fortunately, there are many less expensive options for the rest of us. This choice however can make things a bit confusing for customers. That is where we can help. Our knowledge and expertise can help guide you to the right solution for your premises to give the level of security you require.
DDA Compliant / NACOSS Gold Standard / User Friendly
Entry systems are the most interactive part of the security industry. The components that make up the system have to be placed practically for ease of use but at the same time without compromising the security. If a system is not designed correctly it can cause users to get frustrated and find ways to circumnavigate it, e.g. objects placed in doorway to stop the door from locking.
There are many regulatory considerations that must also be adhered to. The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) stipulates acceptable positioning of entry system components to ensure that not just your able bodied clients and employees have easy access and safe egress from your premises. VWS can design your entry system to NACOSS Gold standard and ensure you are DDA compliant and most importantly, secure.View Portfolio Get In Touch
Door Entry / Access Control / Fire & CCTV Integration
Security Entry is in many cases an integration of two different systems, Door Entry and Access Control. A Door Entry system is probably the simpler of the two and is the part that lets a visitor to your premises, call you from a panel at the front door to inform you of their arrival and subsequently allows you to grant them entry from the entry phone within your premises.
Access Control requires the visitor to have a form of ID such as a fob, pin number, swipe card or fingerprint. Access is granted when the system is presented with the ID and it checks with data stored in a controller that acknowledges the ID as one registered, issued and valid for that entry point.
Integration is also very common with other disciplines. This could be a trigger from the entry system when someone is at the door requesting entry that they are captured on CCTV to give better verification, an activation of an alarm system when a door is opened without permission or commonly to a fire system to unlock doors automatically in the instance of a fire.
VWS has vast experience with integration to help you get added value from your security systems.View Portfolio Get In Touch
