Protecting staff, students, and assets

    Controlling who is where on your premises could not be more important in schools, colleges, and universities.

    At Chris Lewis we leverage the most innovative integrations and technology to make this process simple and fast. Controlling access to everything from dorm rooms and halls, to classrooms and even cupboards, we can help ensure only authorised individuals access certain areas of your campus. 

    School Access Control

    We do the fundamentals of access control better than anyone, but we don’t stop there. Our team of experts specialise in making technology work for you through intelligent integrations that support all areas of your educational environment. For us, access control is about more than just a key fob, it's about using technology in the constant battle to keep your students, staff, and assets safe- all in the simplest way possible. 

    Reduce the number of keys you carry by switching to access control cards, allowing entry to everything from the front gate to classroom cupboards

    Immediately lock all entrances and initiate lockdown procedures with ease, regardless of where you are in the world

    Smart Cards grant access to classrooms, dorms, libraries, and more. All based on the individual, cashless vending is even an option! 

    Keep an audit trail to see where individuals have been and at what time, adding an additional level of security
