Access Control Systems


Avanti Alarms has the knowledge and experience to design, install, and monitor electronic access control systems for your facilities anywhere nationwide.


Whether your company needs to secure a single door or hundreds of entrances across multiple sites, electronic access control is the most efficient way to do so.


Access control systems are far less susceptible to human error than traditional locks, which leave doors vulnerable if they are left unlocked or a key is lost or replicated.


These are issues that can be avoided by implementing a simple access control system that includes an electronic lock that can only be opened from the outside by authorised personnel using a PIN code or swipe / proximity card, or more commonly visitors using an intercom or biometrics.


When a card or proximity is lost or stolen, its details are simply removed from the system, whereas a PIN code can be changed when employees leave.

Access Control System Installation
  • Gated access.
  • Barrier access.
  • Internal / External turnstiles access.
  • Internal / External door access.
  • Specific zone access.
  • Proximity reader access.
  • Fingerprint reader access.
  • Face recognition reader access.
  • Swipe card reader access.
  • Temperature monitoring access recognition.
  • Temporary access.
  • Time controlled access.

Stand-alone access control is a system in which all of the electronics are contained within the keypad or reader, resulting in an easy-to-manage and cost-effective solution for your company.


Because all of the electronics are contained within the reader, these systems are not recommended for exterior or interior doors requiring high security.


Access is gained via a fob, card, or keypad, and can be installed on a single or multiple doors within a building.


Examples of typical applications include:



An electronic access control system can do much more than just secure the exterior of a site with multiple doors or a business with multiple locations.


It can be programmed to restrict access to specific areas of the building to authorised personnel, control car park entry, record how many people are in an office in the event of a fire alarm, grant temporary access to guests or contractors, record staff attendance, and link to payroll systems.


A networked PC-based system provides the advantages of central control, flexible access permissions, and powerful reporting tools.


Avanti Alarms has a team of skilled, expert engineers who can design a custom solution for your access control system, including doors, gates, barriers, or bollards, regardless of how you gain access to your premises or facilities.


We will conduct a thorough site survey to determine the most suited equipment for your needs.


Importantly, all Avanti Alarms doors, gates, barriers, or bollards solutions may be connected with your access control and intercom systems, allowing you to have complete control over who has access to your facilities, whether at a single location or across many sites.


Gates, for example, can be linked to your CCTV surveillance and remotely triggered, allowing your business to continue running even when you are not present, such as night deliveries.

Biometric access control system

Because biometric access control systems add an extra layer of security, we especially recommend them for sensitive environments such as:



Biometric access control systems use the most advanced fingerprint recognition and fingerprint lock technologies and can be used both internally and externally. They are as quick and simple to use as traditional card or fob access control systems, but they are more secure.


Fingerprint is, of course, unique to each individual, there is no risk of unauthorised visitors gaining access to areas that require restricted access.


Facial recognition software maps the human face by measuring the distance between the eyes, the distance between the chin and the forehead, and other critical identification points. These distinct facial features are converted into a template or “facial print” of a person, which is then saved in a database. Face images are captured by cameras in access control systems and compared to a database of facial prints. If a match is found, entry points can be automatically unlocked and opened; otherwise, entry can be denied.


Retina recognition is a biometric technique that identifies people by using the unique patterns on their retinas. The retina is a layer of blood vessels at the back of the eye. The eye is placed in front of the system at a capture distance ranging from 8 cm to 1 metre.


Iris recognition captures images of the human eye’s venal patterns using digital camera technology and infrared illumination. A usable image of the iris can be obtained from a distance of 5 to 25 cm. Iris scanning technology, when used correctly, can produce quick results with a low false match rate.
