Access Control Systems – Edmonton

Protect your building 24 hours a day with a card access control system. With entrance controls in place, only authorized users can gain entry to your building. A high-level security system that helps protect your assets, and accounts for all building occupants. We can even provide an app for your smartphone or Android devices that allows you to control the doors of your building remotely!

With an access control system, individuals must present credentials before they can unlock a door and enter your building; this is done using proximity-based swipe cards, an electronic keypad, a Bluetooth device, or by key fob. High-security credentials can further include biometric readers or retina scanners for sensitive areas such as laboratories or server rooms. Additionally, wireless remotes are available for parkade driveways and overhead doors.

Our Partners and Brands

We partner with many of the best access control companies in the world. The manufacturers and brands we promote include:


It’s a security system that electronically controls and restricts access to your building. Instead of a mechanical key, users must provide an authorized swipe card or key fob to gain entry to a specific door, or to access a given area or floor of a building.

Users must provide a valid access card or key fob before they can gain entry to the building. By swiping an authorized credential at the card reader, the system reads it and then releases the door electronically. All entries are then tracked and recorded for security audits if required. Additional features such as biometric (fingerprint) readers, or retina scanners can also be deployed. In most cases, high-security prox cards are used with proximity-based card readers.

If you need to prevent unauthorized individuals from entering your building, you can use an access control system. Manage who can enter your building, and when they can enter (and who doesn’t). Card access is also used to track employees and visitors of your facility. A software audit can further demonstrate who entered the building, what time they entered, and the door/s they have accessed? It can also be used during a safety audit to show who may remain onsite?

You might be wondering if your building or company needs an access control system. The top benefits are as follows:

  • Prevent unauthorized people from entering your building, workspace, or floor.
  • Ensure that building occupants are safe and accounted for.
  • Print employee ID using printable access control cards.
  • Monitor everyone who enters the premises.
  • HR audits – employee time & attendance.
  • Eliminate changing of locks & keys.

Customer Testimonials

When our consulting firm moved into a new office space here in Calgary, we began looking for a Commercial Security System to secure our business. We contacted Union Alarm and they were quick to send someone over to look at our building. Upon completing a walk-through survey, Peter emailed us with a couple of prepared quotes that provided some great options. We chose to install a Commercial Alarm System with Electronic Card Readers for the entrance doors, and we added Surveillance Cameras to protect and monitor the space. Union Alarm performed a precision installation and trained our staff to maintain the access cards & key fobs. This company comes highly recommended!
