Access Control

Protecting your building and the assets it contains often means more than simply locking doors and checking windows. Many facilities require stricter security measures or have certain zones that need to be more highly guarded than others.

With a reliable access system, Activo can help you protect a single location or any number of locations from unauthorized individuals. Whether your business consists of one facility or hundreds, our access control systems—often referred to as keyless entry or card entry systems—can help you confidently manage access to each and every area.

Our access control solutions are engineered to be flexible and reliable. We can work with you to build a new system or retrofit an existing one, integrating individual components (like keypads, surveillance cameras, and intercoms) to form an effective and defensive access control infrastructure. We offer preventative maintenance contracts and honour all manufacturer warranties, giving you peace of mind in the event that an element in your system goes down.

Access Control Key Considerations

What type of system will I require?

There are a variety of factors you need to consider.

  • Level of Security: Some facilities will only need to use keypads and access cards, while higher security locations could benefit from biometric and facial recognition tools.
    • Integrations: Access control systems can be designed to work with the other components of your security system (CCTV, intercom, etc.) depending on your needs.
    • Technology: Options to consider include hardwired versus wireless, maglocks versus electrified locks, and more.

How can I keep track of who is (and has been) accessing my facilities?

Our access control systems can make it possible to establish accountability through audit trails and reports. For example, an audit report will show you when and where the following actions took place:

  • Date and time of all entries.
  • Tampers with the system.
  • Denials of entry.

With accurate audit trails you can easily associate every user with their actions throughout the workplace. In the event that security is breached, you will be able to track who was at the specific location to correctly identify the error and address the individuals involved.

Are today’s access control systems compatible with legacy infrastructures?

If you need to make upgrades to an existing access control system, our security technicians will work with you to source components and products that will keep your system functioning properly.

What types of service and warranty contracts do you offer?

We will work with you to create the contract to suit your needs, whether you’re looking for one-time service or need ongoing service and preventative maintenance. We honour all manufacturer warranties, giving you peace of mind in the event that an element in your system goes down.

Can access control systems be integrated with other parts of my security system?

Access control systems can be designed to work with the other components of your security system (CCTV, intercom, etc.) depending on your needs.
