access control 1Access control security is a vital component of any modern security system. It refers to the practice of restricting access to a building, room, or resource to authorized personnel only. As an access control security contractor, we take pride in designing, installing, and maintaining access control systems to ensure the safety and security of our clients, and their property.

Access control systems can be designed in various uses, from basic key card systems to more advanced bio-metric systems that use fingerprint or facial recognition technology. The primary goal of any access control system is to prevent unauthorized access and protect sensitive information or assets.  In order to design, install, and maintain these systems, an access control security contractor will evaluate your entire plan, from structural environment to functionality and integration aspects. 

Access control systems are commonly used in a variety of settings, including office buildings, government facilities, hospitals, schools, and residential buildings. They can help improve security by preventing unauthorized individuals from entering restricted areas, monitoring employee or visitor movements, and creating a record of access events for auditing purposes, and that’s just the basics.

The process of designing and installing an access control system involves several steps, each of which is crucial to an access control security contractor to ensure overall effectiveness of the system. NDC takes every element into consideration when designing.

The first step in designing an access control system is to assess the security needs and requirements of the property. This involves conducting a thorough security risk assessment to identify potential vulnerabilities and determine the level of access control required.

Next, we work with the property owner to determine the desired features and functions of the system. This includes deciding on the type of access control technology to be used, such as key-cards, bio-metric readers, or proximity sensors, and if any integration of other systems are needed, such as alarms, CCTV, mass notification, etc.  As an access control security contractor, we bear a significant responsibility that we approach with utmost seriousness, recognizing that lives may hinge on our actions.

Once the design phase is complete, our team of experts will begin the installation process. This typically involves mounting hardware such as card readers, locking mechanisms, and control panels at strategic entry and exit points throughout the property, along with any additional add-on that may need integrated.

In addition to installing the physical components of the system, our techs will also assist with support in programming the software and user set up permissions to ensure that only authorized individuals are granted access to specific areas.  This is best done using your in house IT team for security reasons.

After the system has been installed, we conduct thorough testing and calibration to ensure that the system is functioning properly. This may involve running simulations of various access scenarios, checking for vulnerabilities, and verifying that the system is effectively restricting access to unauthorized individuals.

Regular maintenance and servicing of the access control system is crucial to ensuring its continued effectiveness. This should only be performed by the installing contractor, or with the assistance of the manufacturer should you chose to keep it in house.
