Access Control Systems
OUR KEY SERVICES
We design, supply and install electronic access control systems to the entire Sydney area, with complete lock security solutions available for clients of all sizes (small, medium or large!) and types (commercial, hotels, education and so on). RFID cards, fobs, fingerprint access, numeric PIN codes, and key overrides available. Typically, your needs will fall into one of two categories:
Standalone applications where only low levels of functionality and
simple programming at-the-lock is required. This type of access control
is recommended for small offices and houses.
Intergrated, networked applications where high levels of functionality
and real-time updates and audit trails are required via a central software
program (with possiblity for remote access online). This type of access
control is recommended for larger properties like hotels, apartments,
commercial buildings, schools and universities.

SHOULD I CONSIDER A WIRELESS SYSTEM?
Our specialty is wireless access control systems, which can be characterised as intelligent, secure and cost-affordable (reduces the need for wiring and electronic components). This of course raises the question: why should you consider a wireless system as opposed to a fully wired system or a mechanical master key system? Here are some reasons why...
FLEXIBILITY: without the hassle of complicated and sometimes infeasible wiring requirements,
wireless systems can fit the vast majority of locks, doors and access points.
COST EFFICIENCY: wired access control systems are often complex and have many
expensive components, including an electronic strike or magnetic lock, an external wall reader, an
internal exit button, and connection to a power supply. In contrast, wireless access control is simpler
and cheaper while maintaining the same amount of functionality: only the mechanical lock requires
replacing with a battery-operated cylinder or escutscheon.
SECURITY: all wireless communication is via encrypted electromagnetic waves, which offers security
against potential hackers. The lock unit itself communicates directly with RFID swipe cards, and the
reliability is extremely high. If the locks are connected to a central controller to establish an easy-to-
modify network, the battery-operated lock unit continues to operate both mechanically and via the
RFID swipe cards if the network goes down (with a wired system, the ENTIRE access control system
ceases to operate if there is a cutoff to the power supply). The memory in the lock is also non-volatile,
meaning that the memory is not wiped off if the batteries go flat.
FUNCTIONALITY: ability to easily control all levels of access including adding/deleting users, setting
scheduled users, and checking an audit trail.
INTEGRATION WITH OTHER SYSTEMS: wireless access control units tend to be compatible with both
other RFID technologies (e.g., HID iClass, Mifare) and leading physical security information
management systems, which allows for the possibility of integration for comprehensive building
