Access Control

As the world becomes more digital and buildings more intelligent, homeowners and businesses are looking at more efficient ways to secure buildings.  Access control enables you total control on who has access to your building. Locks and keys also allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable.


Access control, professionally installed by Amthal Fire & Security, offers the complete portfolio from simple audio entry to iris recognition readers, through biometrics and video entry systems to provide the most efficient and convenient way of securing your home, or business.


Additionally and quite simple, access control offers a secure, convenient, flexible and cost effective way of controlling who has access to your building and when that access is allowed.  When considering an access control system to secure your premises, safeguard your property and sensitive data you need to be sure you identify and permit entry to only authorised visitors during specified times.  This requires a tailored solution designed around your specific requirements.


Amthal offers a complete range of access control systems starting with the simplest audio entry system through to highly sophisticated video, biometric and iris recognition readers.  PC based systems can also be integrated with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology.  From single sites with one door to multiple sites with hundreds of doors, any of our systems can be linked to PC based software and managed from a single point or site.  Amthal will design the most appropriate system for your specific requirements, complete the installation, commission and hand over.  We can also provide personalised ID cards printed with your company and employee details.


An access control system essentially gives you the ability to control, monitor and restrict movements in and around a building, an area or a site.  You can manage and protect your staff, visitors, stock, assets and vehicles.  You can then enhance the safety of your staff and visitors and reduce the incidence of theft and vandalism.  In the instance that you should quickly need to remove access from one of the users then they can be removed from the entire system at the touch of a button. Access is instantly removed from all areas covered by the access system.  This is cost effective, simpler and quicker than having to change locks and re-issue new keys to other users.  An electronic access control system allows the creation of an activity log of all users that have gained or tried to gain access through any door at all times.  Access control systems can also be integrated with CCTV installations giving visual footage for all entry and exit through a controlled door.


All our access control systems are designed and developed to the highest quality standards under current British and European legislation.  They are installed, maintained and supported by our experienced and skilled service team.
