Government and military facilities oversee sensitive data and information, assets and important personnel and may need to restrict entry to certain areas.

Access management ensures that only sanctioned personnel are granted access to sensitive areas.

A sophisticated security system equips federal agencies or other government organisations with the power to control, manage and monitor the movement of all relevant employees and visitors.


Financial institutions such as banks face numerous challenges such as possible breaches, theft and trespass.

The reliability of the physical security of a bank also plays a role in forming the perception of the institution's reputation.

Access control systems empower banks to manage visitors, lockers, employees, and vaults, but also protect confidential customer data and valuable assets on the premises.

What is an access control system?

Access control is a commercial security system that enables the controlled movement, accessibility, and monitoring of people on a site.

Access control systems utilise different technologies such as readers, biometric scanners and key fobs to regulate who can enter a certain premise and when.

Why are access control systems important?

Access control is incredibly important to safeguard your business and its personnel from breaches and unwanted threats. Access control also provides a central authority system that can control the level of access available to occupants at varying times.

Employees, visitors, contractors, and personnel feel safe and confident knowing they are always protected. Access control systems also protect access to privileged information, company data or rooms that should otherwise be restricted.

What are examples of access control?

Access control utilises technology such as biometric scans, electronic locks, keypads, and access cards to regulate access to a specific physical premise. Biometric technology employs the use of fingerprint scanners and facial recognition to determine the identity of a user and either grant or limit access.

ADT incorporates a range of sophisticated technology to curate a protected system best suited to you. Get in touch to find out more about our range of options.

How do I install access control?

Access control should be installed with the expert help of security professionals to ensure it is properly integrated into your existing security setup and avoid costly mistakes.

There are also a wide range of factors to consider based on your individual business or organisation's needs. How do you want your central authority to function? What access control policy do you want to use?

How much does an access control system cost?

Factors to consider include the size of a premise, the traffic, the value of assets, the level or access rights you want to grant and the range of technology you want to employ.
