Access Control & Door Entry Systems

Commercial Key Fob Door Entry Systems

Key fob door entry systems are a modern, secure and effective means for businesses to manage access to and from their premises.

Customers who invest in a key fob door entry typically use these access control systems to track and monitor time, attendance and employee productivity. This data enables you to protect staff and visitors during emergency situations as well as monitoring productivity across your workforce; lateness, toilet breaks and unauthorised absences.

For businesses currently using traditional key-based door entry, fob door entry systems reduce the cost of replacing locks and doors when keys are lost. These systems also mitigate the security risks associated with lost keys and former employees still having access to the building.

Video Intercom Systems

Video intercom systems, otherwise known as video door entry, provides businesses with an additional layer of security at the front door. In many commercial settings, video intercom systems, have overtaken older audio-based intercoms.

In commercial environments, a video intercom allows reception and other front-of-house staff to see who’s at the door before letting them in. This provides added peace of mind to an effective access control policy,
Furthermore, video intercom systems are highly effective for businesses and premises that have a high degree of visitors and deliveries and are widely used across high-security sites, where remote access may be required.

Keyless Door Entry Systems

Keyless door entry systems are a modern, secure means to control access to and from your premises.
They allow you to mitigate the risks of lost keys and the costs associated with replacing door locks.

Not only can traditional keys be lost, but they can also be cloned creating additional security risks for your business.

Keyless door entry systems can be programmed to give your staff and visitors permanent or temporary access to your entire building or certain designated areas.

Audio Intercom Systems

Audio intercom systems are effective in securing and providing access to a range of sites and commercial premises. Typically audio intercom systems are used by businesses to grant front door access and manage the flow of traffic across large sites.

If you are looking for a trusted, easy to operate commercial security system, where access control is a necessary requirement, an audio intercom is an excellent investment for many businesses.

Effortlessly tailored to suit a multitude of applications, audio intercom and audio door entry systems offer exceptional, robust door access together with coded door entry.

IP Intercom Systems: Video & Audio

IP intercom systems control access to your building in a secure cost-effective way. These commercial intercom systems operate either via video or audio.

When looking to secure commercial premises, IP intercoms provide a range of technical benefits including flexibility, easy installation, performance, scalability and an improved corporate image.

In terms of their practical applications, IP based door entry systems are used to grant main door access, manage the flow of traffic to and from a site and helping monitor deliveries to a business

Like with all access control systems, the core focus of IP intercoms are to keep track of who’s accessing your building, when and where.

We engaged Safeguard Systems to design and install an internal CCTV and access control fob system to protect our premises, staff and car park. These guys worked with me to give me the system I needed, and worked to challenging deadlines. Great company, top people.

Sand Communications

I've partnerred with Safeguard 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.

Stuart Anstie

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, the remoter viewing capabilities and I've had no reliability issues either.

Harry Timbrell

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.

    Frequently asked questions

    What is access control and how does it work?

    Access control is a modern, electronic form of security. Access control enables a business or organisation to manage entry to, from, and around a site.

    For example:

    • A company can provide universal access to all staff via its front door
    • They can restrict access to certain internal areas – server room, stock rooms, areas holding hazardous materials, and more
    • Car park access can be managed in several ways to only allow pre-approved vehicles or individuals who have an entry code

    Furthermore, access control systems will supply live data covering who is in or out of the building

    The different types of access control systems are:

    • Door access systems
    • Intercoms
    • Time and attendance systems
    • Gate automation
    • Company car park access control

    Let’s take a quick look at each:

    Door access control systems

    This covers key fob, key card, swipe card, biometric and smartphone-based door entry systems.


    A video intercom is useful for managing deliveries and granting visitor access. Audio intercoms are used generally to manage the flow of people internally within a building or site.

    Time and attendance

    These access control installations help businesses with a keen eye on lateness, or where individuals are working remotely and need monitoring.

    Gate automation

    ANPR cameras, key fob, and keypad systems can be used to manage access to s business or residential property.

    Car park access control

    You can manage access to your company car park via ANPR cameras, key fob and keypad systems. Many companies deal with and manage unauthorised access, so one of the above systems will help manage this nuisance.

    This really depends on a multitude of factors.

    Typically, the cost of an access control system will be decided by:

    • The cost of the hardware
    •  The cost of labour

    In context, if a company needs to secure 10 entry points it will likely be a lot cheaper than one requiring 25 doors, car park access control, and several internal intercoms.

    If you are looking for an access control system installation, give us a call today to see how we can help.

    Simply put, by an access control installer.

    At Safeguard, we have a team of professional access control installers. Each access control installer is DBS checked, and SSAIB approved.

    An access control installer should be able to fit the following systems:

    • Door entry systems
    • Intercoms – video and audio
    • Time and attendance systems
    • Gate and car park barrier automation

    If you are thinking about doing it yourself, be careful. A small residential system is one thing, but installing a door entry system at an office block or other commercial site requires a professional.

    Although the primary role of an access control system is to manage door entry, it covers so much more.

    In addition to doors, access control covers:

    • Gates
    • Car parks
    • Internal elevators

    Yes, a good access control system should have a ‘battery backup’ plan in case of emergencies. This will help the system to continue.

    Furthermore, an access control system can be set to enable the site to be locked down in case of an impending emergency or a threatening individual approaching the building.

    If an intruder is already in the building, if the system is designed to do so, part of the building can be locked down to isolate the threat.

    Safeguard operates across the South of England. Our access control systems installers cover:

    • Hampshire
    • Berkshire
    • Wiltshire
    • Oxfordshire
    • London

    Our access control installers are all SSAIB approved, and DBS checked.
