Residential Access Control

An intruder alarm is working 24/7, protecting your home against any uninvited visitors.

Whether you need a simple, convenient key-code or a high-security full retina scan, access control is key to a safe and comfortable home environment. armex provide a variety of solutions for granting access, all of which can be applied to a wide variety of locking and automated systems in your home.

What are the Benefits of a Access Control

Difficult to replicate – A physical key can easily be replicated and used by unauthorised personnel. Whereas, in contrast, a keycode or biometric token cannot be lost/replicated, replicating a proximity token will present a challenge.

Monitoring access – The tools to monitor the history of exit and entry through access-controlled doors,  recording identity, time and location.

Protect assets – It should go without saying, implementation of an effective access control system is paramount to ensuring the protection of your families assets.

Settling disputes – In the unfortunate event of a crime, access control can provide significant evidence towards identifying the offender, as the token used to grant access to the building will have been recorded by the system.

Types of Home access Control

Keycode access control requires simple four or, six-digit code be entered into a keypad situated at the point of access. Following the installation of a key code access system, all doors controlled via the system will automatically lock after door closure, those without knowledge of the 4-6-digit pin will find themselves unable to enter.

This is a cost-effective access control solution; however, it does bear the risk of becoming compromised if the code is shared. This form of access control can be administered via an on-line or offline system.

One of the most popular methods of granting access. A system user will be required to carry a proximity token in order to grant access. Proximity tokens are available as one of many different formats, these include cards, keyfobs, wristwatches, mobile NFC and BLE. The system user will swipe/present their proximity token against a reader at the point of access.

This is a slightly higher cost solution than keycode, however, the user benefits from improved security and administration features, for instance, the ability to add and delete proximity tokens as and when required. Online administration also allows for flexible access management, such as restricting access to specific areas, only accessible to those with the relevant authority.

A potential risk associated with this format of access control is that ‘keys’ can be all too easily lost or stolen. Should a lost or stolen proximity token be reported immediately the access rights can be withdrawn instantly. However, the security of your property or its assets is reliant upon how quickly the missing token is realised and reported.

This form of access control is viewed as one of the most secure methods. Biometric access control systems can read a fingerprint, retina or even an individual’s face. A system user will present either their eye, fingerprint or full face, to a reader mounted in a convenient location at the point of access.

This is a top of the range solution, ideal when unique identity tokens are essential. This system eliminates the need for numerous proximity tokens and is ideally suited to large organisations or high traffic areas.

Any of the above access methods can be combined in any way required in an online solution, only keycode and proximity are supported in offline solutions.
