Choosing a Card Access Control System

Flexible, customizable, and completely secure—that’s the power you have with a card access system. Secure your Edmonton business with a card access system. Professionally installed by Union Alarm.

Once deployed, controlling access to your building is simple with an electronic access control system. With a card access system, you can:

  • Manage which users can gain access to the building by providing Bluetooth credentials, key fobs, or proximity based access control cards.
  • Before opening a door, employees and guests must swipe a valid access control card, enter a personal code, or provide an electronic key fob.
  • Revoke access to specific users, and restrict access to an area whenever necessary.
  • Program time schedules to control when areas are accessible to card users.

By creating user groups, you can manage which employees can enter a specific area (and at which times those areas are accessible). Once you assign a schedule, you can restrict access to user groups when necessary and keep your building secure.

Ever wondered who enters your building and at what time? With a traditional key mechanism, you’ll never know. But a card access system tracks who opens each door, and when. You can protect entrance doors using our electrified locking hardware and electronic card readers.

Plus, you’ll never need to change your keys or locks again. Use the software to reprogram your key fobs or access cards whenever you need to.

Card Access System – Q&A

Say goodbye to locks with keys. A card access system requires the use of a programmable key card, valid credential or key fob to gain entry to your building. Simply swipe the card or key fob at the reader and the door unlocks for an authorized user. When you want to revoke access, you can edit user groups or permissions using the software.

Customer Testimonials


“Union Alarm took over an existing building access system on two of our buildings. Since the initial building access work was completed several years ago, additional door access and security cameras were installed and in recent months, an additional building access system has been added. The service technicians were knowledgeable, took time to listen to the client’s needs and provided cost-effective solutions.”  Card Access System & Camera Installation
