EFT | Access Control

EFT Systems are an experienced installer and maintainer of all types of access control systems.

‘Access Control systems can be simply defined as the process by which authorised people (residents, staff, security) enters and leaves the premises and when.’

Access control can include lock and key, but more frequently in the modern security industry, means sophisticated electronic turnstiles, gates, wireless locks and other barriers.

Keys can be lost, stolen and copied, leaving assets vulnerable and requiring a replacement can be expensive.

Modern access control systems provide flexibility in respect of access rights. For example, access to certain internal areas or specific time periods.

Access can be based on biometric solutions such as facial, fingerprint and iris recognition.
