Card Access Control Systems – Calgary

Entrance Control Solutions – Since 1990

Calgary businesses and office complexes rely on Union Alarm for card access control systems and certified entrance control systems to safeguard their premises. A typical entrance control system integrates electronic card readers and electrified locking mechanisms to fortify the entry points of a building. This combination of technologies enables…

  • Individuals and visitors to gain entry to your building using electronic access cards and key fobs.
  • Staff members to present their access control cards or key fobs at the card reader to unlock a door.
  • Administrators to program doors, managing user groups, and assigning time schedules to specific areas.

Utilizing enterprise software, card access control systems enable the creation of user groups, granting control over individuals’ access to particular doors and times. Card Access Control Systems then apply time schedules to designated areas and groups, limiting access cards during secure periods.

Furthermore, the electronic entry system generates an audit trail of door entries, detailing the identities of individuals and timestamps. Lastly, card access control systems offer the ability to reprogram key cards or key fobs through the software, facilitating their reuse and eliminating the necessity to rekey locks or change keys.
