Our Partners and Brands

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






This security system electronically manages and limits access to your building. Instead of using a traditional mechanical key, individuals need to present an authorized swipe card or key fob to enter a designated door or access particular areas or floors within the building.

Prior to gaining entry to the building, users are required to present a valid access card or key fob. Upon swiping an authorized credential at the card reader, the system processes the information and electronically releases the door. All entries are meticulously tracked and recorded for potential security audits. Furthermore, additional features such as biometric (fingerprint) readers or retina scanners can be implemented for enhanced security. Typically, proximity-based card readers are utilized alongside high-security prox cards for most applications. Learn more here…

To deter unauthorized entry into your building, consider implementing an access control system. This system enables you to regulate who can enter your premises and the specific times they are permitted access, as well as who is restricted. Card access functionality also facilitates tracking of both employees and visitors within your facility. Through a software audit, you can accurately identify individuals who entered the building, along with the timestamps and accessed doors. Moreover, this audit trail can be invaluable during safety audits to ascertain individuals who may still be on-site.

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.

How Access Control Systems Can Help Secure Your Business

It’s clear that you need a way to manage employee access; otherwise, your business is at risk. With a visitor management system, you can:

Easily manage employee access

When a new employee joins your business, you can give them access on day one. And if someone decides to leave, you can revoke their access just as fast. Access control allows you to manage who can gain entry to sensitive areas of your building.

With role-based access control, you can set up permissions and restrictions for employees and guests. Manage who can gain access (and during which times).

Track user activity

If something goes missing in a restricted area, you need to know who was last in there. Your access control software will keep a log of the people who entered, including the date and time.

Customer Testimonials

Recently, I received a referral from my network installer suggesting Union Alarm be considered to install the security systems for our new business office in Sherwood Park. I contacted Graeme Browne to arrange a survey of our new building and quote us on a few different options. Peter Gallant attended our site to review our needs. They responded with the recommendation of an Integrated Card Access & Business Alarm System with a separate option to monitor our Fire Alarm Panel. Upon receiving their proposal, I was happy to see they were very competitive in terms of pricing.

On top of that, they had such active communication throughout the process I decided to proceed with them as the installer of choice. Peter was quick to arrange the installation and took care of everything in a very professional manner. We are quite pleased with the service and expertise they demonstrated, and would absolutely recommend this company for any alarm protection and card access control systems! | ICT Card Access Control & Business Alarm System w/ ULC Monitoring
