A door entry installation can range from single door used by a small number of residents, to a fully integrated, digitally controlled security system providing multiple door access to a large number of residents. The installation can be designed to exact requirements with audio or video identification and key, code or proximity access. All door entry installations are designed with disabled users in mind but, we are also able to install systems which will meet the specific needs of disabled and hard of hearing residents.
Audio Door Entry – Often considered to be the “low cost” option, our audio door entry installations are by no means poor quality or unreliable, we prefer to call it the “good value” option. The audio system consists of an entrance panel which allows visitors to call a resident and be identified audibly via the intercom. The resident receives the call though a handset which has the facility of unlocking the main entrance door.
Residents can gain access to the building using a master key, a keycode on the entrance panel or a proximity key, often called a keyfob. If the keypad code is compromised or a proximity key is lost, it is easy for a nominated person to update the system.
Video Door Entry – This installation offers a higher level of security than the audio system, as the resident is able to see and talk to the callers before opening the door. In this case the entrance panel has a small high resolution camera placed behind a protective glass shield. The audio and video signals are then received by the resident through a telephone handset, in real time, with a mono or colour LCD display. Once the caller is visually identified the door can be opened by pressing a button on the handset.
As with all our security and TV installations they can work as part of an integrated system enabling the resident to view the camera images from the door and other CCTV cameras on their television.
By carrying out a full site survey on existing properties or using building plans for new developments, alongside in depth consultation as to the end user requirements we will develop a Door Entry system specifically designed for the property. Using the equipment detailed above and ensuring risk assessments and method statements are in place, our engineers will work with you to ensure the installation goes as smoothly as possible. We pride ourselves on the quality of our workmanship, however if a problem should arise after completion our commitment to excellent after sales service will ensure you remain a satisfied customer.
