automated door entry


  • Cheaper Insurance
  • Cost-effective and efficient
  • Ability to create zones



Door entry systems are a convenient and secure way to control access to a building or property and provide commercial property owners with the reassurance that they can control, monitor and – if necessary – restrict the movement of people in and around a premises or site.


  • Audio based systems usually consist of a panel outside the entrance door (with one or more buttons) and a wall-mounted handset inside. When a visitor presses the call button, the handset will ring and a two-way conversation can be held. The person inside can then release the door by simply pressing a button.
  • Video systems go one step further and usually incorporate a monitor in the handset and a camera at the point of entry. Available in monochrome or colour, they allow you to see visitors before allowing them to enter the property. You can even use the system to check ID badges by asking visitors to hold them up to the camera.
  • Modular systems can be adapted to meet a number of requirements, from simple one button systems to multiple button panels for multi-occupancy buildings.
  • Concierge systems allow calls to be intercepted from both the apartment and the door panel, greatly improving co-ordination of the facility. Both types of systems can also be set up to open barriers or gates, as long as they use electronic automation.

A range of advanced features can also be built in, including privacy of speech (preventing interference from other handsets), and timers to record the time of calls, door releases, and even the duration of conversations.


All door entry systems can be integrated with existing features, including access control, telephone lines and CCTV. For example, footage from a door entry system can be recorded and monitored along with other CCTV output. A range of finishes are available too, so that modern handsets and monitors can be integrated into existing decor. (from the current ai security website)


Cheaper Insurance
The British Security Industry Authority recently held discussions with the Association of British Insurers and the talks highlighted the fact that insurers would find it useful if the level of security offered on a site is specifically defined.

Cost-effective and efficient
No need to change locks or re-issue keys of they are lost or stolen or staff members leave; all the manager needs to do is centrally reconfigure the key fobs to deactivate them.

Ability to create zones
Systems can be designed and programmed so that access to different areas of the site can be controlled even among staff members.
