Access control & door entry system for a school

Safeguard Systems were asked to provide a quotation for an access control and door entry system for a reputable independent school.

The school needed an improved system for managing attendance and knowing who is in and out of the building at any one time.

Furthermore, they needed a system that would be easily manageable, administered and could have students and staff added to it simply.

Having worked with many schools in the past, we knew we would be able to design and install a system meeting all of their requirements and budget.


The door entry system design and recommendations

Safeguard Systems had a surveyor attend site to understand the client’s full requirements. The client required the electronic door entry system to cover the main entrance for pupils, the reception area and staff entrance.

The system would need to provide general access via the main entrance whilst restricting entry to the staff access area.

Considering internal resources, and the requirement for the system to be easily manageable, we opted for Paxton Net2. The installed system would comprise of:

  • Fobs & fob readers
  • Maglocks and push to exit buttons
  • Emergency break glass units

Full training would be provided for assigning and deleting users.



School access control and door entry system: Project outcome

The system was installed on time and against a challenging deadline. Our engineers are used to working around the needs of schools and their staff.

Full training was delivered on administering the system, adding and deleting users, and how to track who is in and out of the building.

The client was delighted with the project turnaround timeframe and the school now has an effective access control and door entry system to help manage the flow of staff, pupils and visitors.

I needed to upgrade the CCTV system at my premises after a series of attempted break-ins. My site is a rural location with a lot of outbuildings.
After being caught short In the installation of my original system with regards to the standard of install and the cost I carried out a bit of research into what system would be best for my site so I had some kind of idea before contacting professionals for quotes. The end product was far superior to what my original idea of what I wanted was and their installation was low-key and unobtrusive.

I chose Safeguard in Swindon recently to retrofit a Victorian cottage with CCTV - no small job owing to the construction of the building. I was very impressed with the skill with which the techs installed the necessary cable runs, once finished their work was almost invisible! The quite advanced pro-grade camera system has required a certain amount of follow up support to train me how to use it properly and I have found them to be patient and very was necessary.

Chris and the team are fantastic, we had them in at work to upgrade the office security, install CCTV and alarms at a new facility and now they have done my home. The job was done quickly and to an extremely high standard. Would recommend to any and all, and I have.

I couldn't be happier with the team at Safeguard Systems. I've worked with them on several projects before and I wouldn't go anywhere else for a quality security system installation. Our client, a high-end hair salon required a full studio design and fit-out along with a highly effective CCTV system to help protect and watch over their premises.

We are a trustee organisation responsible for a recreational facility and its associated pavilions and buildings. We approached Safeguard systems to upgrade our security CCTV systems. The customer experience has been first class from start to finish - Steve provided expert advice which was supported by a detailed quote delivered ahead of time. The installation and follow up service has been first class, with a special mention to Jordan.

Safeguard Systems fitted a complete camera and intruder beam system for my storage compound, started the job very quickly and explained what was possible clearly. Really happy with the system because i can access the cameras on my phone from anywhere which is a big help, and I've had no reliability issues either. Steve and Chris were very nice and professional. Will be using them again to extend the compound shortly.

I got in touch with Safeguard Systems to help secure our warehouse unit with an intruder alarm and CCTV system. They were incredibly helpful and came out to conduct a survey on our premises when others just wanted to provide a quote over the phone.
