Access Control Systems

One of the first steps in providing effective security is access control. Access control limits who can enter certain areas and provides a record of which areas are accessed and when. This helps protect your building, your assets, your information, and your people.

Our access control systems software is user friendly and can be combined with other security features, like surveillance cameras and intrusion detection devices, to provide a more complete system. Access control provides a cost-effective alternative to keys, which can easily be copied or lost, thus compromising your security. Alternatively, biometrics, cards, and other credentials can easily be cancelled, added, or modified with the click of a button. You can manage your access control yourself, either on-site or remotely, or have Centric host and/or monitor it for you.
