We use the latest technology- including proximity cards and tokens, smart cards and biometrics – and source from the leading, global names in access control.

Multi-site, access/ID solutions have changed the way security, property and even HR managers look at access control systems. By providing a fully-integrated, centralised, networked access control solution organisation-wide accountability is now achievable.

Biometrics increase access control security

The application of biometrics for ID, particularly in higher risk environments, is becoming increasingly important as an integrated feature within access control systems and smart card schemes. We can source appropriate biometric technologies (iris, fingerprint, face, voice etc) according to your specification or from our own worldwide contacts with major biometrics developers.

ANPR strengthens vehicular access control

Combining the power of CCTV, computers and pattern recognition software, ANPR is a versatile and vital facility both as an additional mode of access control and as a general security/safety audit tool.

Number plates can be read, logged and database archived for search/retrieval and audit purposes, as well as acting as event triggers to open barriers, signal security alerts etc.

Fire Crest Security provides ANPR with single and multi-lane capabilities to meet a stand-alone need or to bring significant added value to CCTV and access control risk management solutions.

Door entry:

Residential developments without adequate security are potential magnets for vandals, drug dealers and other criminals. This is not only distressing for residents but also potentially costly for local authorities that have to foot the bill. As crime continues to be a big issue, the duty of care for Housing Associations and Local Authorities to protect their residents comes under greater scrutiny, with increasing pressure to provide a more secure environment and enhance quality of life.

Our comprehensive range of Door Entry systems runs from simple, single door entry to a fully integrated, centrally controlled security system with multiple door access. You have the flexibility to select handsets, entry panels and controller options, including two-way speech, colour video, digital keypads and alarm input facilities.

All businesses, large or small, have valuable assets that need to be protected from theft but also protecting staff and their property. Commonly buildings secured by lock and keys doors are left unlocked during the day. This is a potential risk for opportunist thieves or malicious damage.

Access control systems provide efficient and convenient security of your building and assets, it also saves time and hassle having to change locks.

They can offer flexible control to users’ and their access rights. Most staff would need access into the main building, there may be internal areas with restricted access, IE persons who need to be there only. You may have a restriction that is set to specific times of the day or night.

Understanding your requirements is part of finding the right solution for you.

Security Systems are present in most building or premises. This ensures a level of safety, even if the premises are occupied. Security systems act as a safe guard for owners and managers.
