Force 3 Security Ltd offer a complete range of products including Card Access, Biometrics, and Intercoms, all designed, installed, and maintained by trained experts.
Card and Fob Access Control Systems
Card and Fob Access Control Systems are the most common types of access control systems available and they can be employed on a standalone basis or across multiple sites using a fully networked solution. Cards and fobs for these systems can vary greatly from magnetic swipe cards to secure RFID and Smart Cards, in all cases encrypted data is held on the card and fob to be read by access control readers that will release secure doors providing the card is valid for access to that area. The access control data is held on a secure database that is either contained on site or at a centralised location for multiple site operation, user’s details are entered onto the database and this information is then transferred to the access card or fob. Access can be restricted to certain doors at specific times of the day and increased security applications can utilise Read and Pin which require the card holder to swipe and enter a 4 digit security code. Advanced features such as anti-pass back require users to swipe in and out of buildings so eliminating tailgating and giving exact details of who is and isn’t in the building enhancing both the security and safety of the buildings occupants in the event of an incident as a detailed muster list can be printed or people can be required to swipe at a designated muster point to ensure everyone is accounted for. Smart Access cards can also be integrated into building systems such as cashless vending, computer terminal security, and photocopiers.
Biometric Access Control Systems
Biometric Access Control Systems offer an enhanced level of security as they use fingerprint, retinal, or facial information rather than cards and fobs to grant entry to a premise. Biometric Access Control can also be incorporated into Card Access Systems offering a cost effective method of adding this increased security at critical points while allowing card access to less important areas. Users are required to enter their biometric details at special enrolment terminals which accurately gather the biometric information required, this data is then held on a secure database that is either contained on site or at a centralised location for multiple site operation, users details are entered onto the database and this information is then transferred to the biometric terminals situated at each secure door location. Users then present themselves at these terminals and their biometric data is then cross refined with the security database
Security Intercom Systems
Security Intercom Systems offer an easy and extremely cost effective method of granting remote access to a perimeter or building. Intercoms can be audio only or audio video and they can transmit via designated cables or across the GSM network when fitted with an appropriate mobile telephone SIM card (audio only). Systems can incorporate multiple intercom points at various doors and can transmit to multiple handsets or to offsite security control locations providing remote concierge services across multiple sites. Units incorporate relays that can be connected to external devices such as gates and barriers, electronic locks, and access control systems which allow the person to remotely release these devices one they have verified the identity of the person calling.
