Access Control Systems for a Secure Home
Access Control as part of a Home Automation System
Integrating Access Control systems in to a home automation system makes perfect sense – not only can actions be performed when a caller rings the door bell but you can view the intercom system from any touchpanel in the home. Bringing lights on by the front door can gently illuminate visitors to increase security but the same system can also prepare the home when you arrive. Imagine opening the front gates, or garage door, and the home bringing on the lights as you like them, brings the heating up from it’s away mode and opening down stairs blinds – all preprogrammed to your wishes and automated so you don’t have to lift a finger. You could even be greeted by your favourite radio station playing in the kitchen. Access control systems add huge amounts of convenience to the home – determining who has access and at what times increases security hugely. Our systems allow different key fobs to have different access rights – grounds staff can access external buildings but not the core buildings, cleaning staff only have access during the day etc. Our access control systems also allow viewing and two way communication with the gate intercom system from anywhere in the home through a Crestron touchpanel. This level of integration allows any room in the house to communicate with the gate.
