Card Access Control | Edmonton

Choosing a Card Access System

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

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

  • Manage which users can gain access to the building by providing Bluetooth credentials, key fobs, or electronic access cards.
  • Before opening a door, employees and guests must swipe a valid access 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.

By creating user groups, you can manage which employees can enter specific areas (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 times? With a traditional key mechanism, you’ll never know. But a card access system tracks who opens which doors and when. You can protect entrance doors using electrified locking hardware and electronic card readers.

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

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
