Access Control

A fully comprehensive range of access control systems. 

An access control system is a means of restricting access to a property, building or room unless otherwise authorised. The flexibility of each system allows you to determine who is allowed to enter a building and when. 

Due to the vast options of access control, only a few are shown below.

Wireless GSM Intercom

Try the benefits from our GSM range, there are fewer telephone related costs associated with our GSM range, although call charges can be more expensive than land line calls. There is no line installation cost or any line rental charges. The GSM range requires either a Pay-As-You-Go or Contract SIM card.

It is recommended that the SIM is from one of the main network service providers (Vodaphone, 02 and T-Mobile). Vodaphone and 02 are our preferred network service providers purely for the fact of seemingly better network coverage and quality of customer service experienced by us. The cost of the calls are dependant on the tariff applied by the network provider. Most calls will be well within 60 seconds so by the second call charges are preferable. 

A single user or small site would probably benefit from Pay-As-You-Go SIM while multi-user sites would be advised to use a contract SIM. The contract SIM will have a number or free minutes as part of the 'package' making calls from the Telguard free up to the air time provided. 

The key to finding out how many minutes to get on the contract SIM is to use Pay-As-You-Go initially and at the end of the first month, the amount of credit used will give an indication of how many minutes were used and so a contract SIM can be purchased to cover the call pattern.

This becomes even more flexible where the resident has a cordless phone! The running cost of the Telguard is limited to the telephone line rental and a local rate phone call each time a flat is called. Our range of systems even now include GSM-based systems so that a land line is not required, all the calls are made to the flats via the mobile network.
