Fully networked systems also allow for remote buildings to be connected and linked to your systems too, so you have full control no matter where you are based.
Access cards or employee ID badges allow teams to gain entry to secure areas and restrict people from particular areas.
For example, you can grant different levels of employees or different teams within a business different levels of access, i.e., not everyone should have access to the room where private and confidential information is held.
We have a wide range of incredible systems to suit all budgets and to satisfy all risk assessments.
We’re experienced in installing wireless controllers and readers, too – make sure to call us today to find out more.

Intercom systems – whether this is audio or video, we offer it all. Again, ranging from a single handset system to over 100 units suitable for larger-scale projects.
Video door entry – now you can screen callers before allowing entry into the building. With two-way speech, single and multi-door systems available, these systems are suitable for homes, flats, and business premises and are available as internal and external panels.
Visitor management – this type of door access control system is great for schools, colleges, etc., as you can take quick visitor sign in as well as photo badge printing, with a simple touch screen interface, and notifications (ideal for fire evacuation checklists); this type of system meets all inspection criteria.

Installation and maintenance
Door access control systems are electronic security networks that businesses install to help manage people’s movement in, out, and around business premises.
Ultimately, the access control installation process is relatively straightforward in its design as it aims to allow the monitoring of individuals within the building. Controlling who has access to what areas and creating restricted areas where necessary.
Administrators of these systems will also manage permissions, so access to certain areas is only granted to those who really need it.
However, these systems must be regularly maintained if they are to be kept in good working order and to a high standard that is compliant with current regulations.
We offer competitively priced servicing and maintenance packages to suit all businesses – call our team on 0113 265 9790 to find out more.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does the access control system work?
A digital network, access control systems manage entry in and out of designated areas using the tag, tag reader, and access control panel, working together to create a seamless, automated experience.
The tag (key card/key fob etc.) uses wireless technology and RFID signals that, when presented to the reader (control panel), pick up on encoded radio waves that will then unlock/release the door. i.e., once the tag is recognised by the reader, entry in or out is then authorised.
Each tag contains unique information, so it can be programmed to different users, allowing you to authorise different access levels.
What does access control include?
Depending on the access control system you opt for, you will find locking hardware, door readers, door controller, control panels, sensors, and software to manage data and information, all included.
These elements combined help verify usernames, passwords, PINS, biometric scans, etc., identifying all the security features you have previously identified and pre-programmed.
Access control systems can also include multifactor authentication, where you can use fingerprint software with pin access, for example.
Providing you with flexibility, convenience, and a high level of security, access control systems will include access cards, key fobs, and even apps downloaded to smartphones.
How much do the access control systems cost?
The type of system, requirements, number of doors to be included, the complexity of the security system, authentication method, and even the brand of access control system you opt for will all affect cost.
Typically, keyless door entry systems cost between £500-£800 per door. You also need to factor in installation costs and the control system (approximately £300).
You should also factor in ongoing maintenance and repair costs to ensure your system continues to operate at a high standard.
With the long-term benefits outweighing the short-term investment, contact UK Red Security for further information on access control system pricing.
What is an access control system?
An access control system ultimately grants access to authorised personnel to a building and the rooms within it.
An access system works when a key card, fob, or pin is entered or presented, unlocking doors, and allowing people to enter locations with ease.
Suitable for various businesses, access control systems help protect data, equipment, and people, by determining and controlling who can enter and leave rooms/buildings, understanding where people can go, and even when they’re allowed access.
An electronic security feature identifies who has authorisation and who enters and exits the building, Access control systems improve efficiency and security.
What are the types of access control systems?
Determining how permissions are assigned and controlled, access control systems include:
Discretionary – least restrictive, access rights and permissions for all users
Mandatory – recommended for those looking for good or high security, assigning permission you have sole discretion.
Role-based – permissions set based on role in the organisation
Rule-based – i.e., permissions set for certain times on certain days.
Types of access control systems include key cards, key fobs, mobile, biometrics, swipe cards, and more.
You also have the option of a single door or a fully networked system.
