Doing more than just controlling access
Our access control systems do more than just provide preventative measures against unauthorised individuals entering your property. Here at Chris Lewis, we use technology to help automate your business, make life easier, and keep your assets safe.
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 business. For us, access control is about more than just a key fob, it's about using technology in the constant battle to protect your business, your premises, and your assets- all in the simplest way possible.
Doing more than just granting access
Our key strength is our ability to seamlessly integrate your businesses technology together, increasing not only the security of your business, but also making it more efficient.
Our Access Control solutions are able to be fully integrated with your CCTV systems to allow entry to areas of your site based on facial recognition, eliminating the need for fobs. When integrated you will also have the potential to use number plate recognition to control access to car parks.
Another key advantage of integrating your CCTV with Access Control is that the system, when designed to do so, can identify if an individual is in a restricted area, before immediately notifying the relevant members of staff.
Through the use of number plate recognition technology, our integrated Access Control systems can work in conjunction with your gates and barriers to keep your car parks safe whilst retaining a log of all entrances and exits, along with what time they were on your premises.
By integrating your Access Control systems with your HR department (and potentially even their software) you can keep timesheets for staff members and even conduct roll calls, giving you a clear understanding of who is on your premises, what time they arrived, where they have been, and what time they have left.
What's more, you can even receive notification and keep a log if individuals are arriving late, staying late, or attempting to access unauthorised areas, giving you a better overview of the movements of individuals in your business.
Got a visitor on-site just for the day? Control where they can access and for how long they will be granted entry, increasing security and helping you manage your premises more effectively.
In today's current climate, knowing who was on your premises and when is an invaluable asset in the fight against COVID-19. Our Access Control systems make contact tracing incredibly easy and can help reduce the risk of infection, and operational downtime within your organization.
