Commercial Access Control

ADT's commercial access control systems keep organisations and large enterprises across New Zealand safe and secure.

Commercial access control features


ADT's access control systems allow you to easily determine which people have access to specific areas on your premises.

For example, you might want an executive to have access to an area with a higher level of security or need to employ custom permissions across multiple office locations.


Access control allows you to grant access to specific areas and assets at differing times.

For example, you might want to restrict all personnel from accessing office premises after business hours, grant gym users 24/7 access or prohibit users from logging in during a set window.


ADT's access control systems gather invaluable insight from notifications and data generated based on who enters a designated area at a certain time.

From monitoring employee log-in times to the frequency of customer movement, our built-in reporting feature helps businesses uncover opportunities to improve safety, satisfaction and performance.

Keep students, staff and assets safe across multiple campuses with access control systems from ADT. Provide students and staff access to the areas they need such as classrooms or libraries at the times they need. Many university students have benefited from having afterhours access to a library knowing that unwanted visitors have restricted access because of the right access control system.

Government and military facilities oversee sensitive data and information, assets, and important personnel, and may need to restrict building access. Access management ensures that only sanctioned personnel are granted access to sensitive areas. A comprensive 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.

There are many dangers and coordination involved with the maintenance of a construction site. Ensure only the right personnel have access to a site. ADT also caters to mining sites with commercial access systems. For example, if a blast is planned, ADT can ensure access to dedicated “safe areas” away from the blasting site. The desired activity or blast won’t occur until all employees are tapped into the safe area.

Commercial Access Control FAQs

What is an access control system?

An access control system is a commercial security measure that allows for the controlled movement, accessibility, and monitoring of people within a physical premise.

An access control system typically leverages equipment such as readers, biometric scanners, key fobs, or other tools to determine who can enter a specific area and when.

Why are access control systems important?

Access control is important to protect your premises from unwanted threats and breaches while ensuring your employees, students, visitors, contractors, and personnel on-site feel secure and protected.

These security systems also help safeguard sensitive information, company data or rooms that should otherwise be restricted.

What are examples of commercial access control systems?

There are many types of access control that can be employed.

For example, access control mechanisms for large commercial premises might use doors with security locks, card readers, key cards, key fobs, biometric scanners with fingerprint recognition or facial scanners.

ADT incorporates a range of access control solutions to curate a protected system best suited to you.

How do I install an access control system?

Access control systems are best installed by security professionals as there might be a wide and unique range of factors to consider based on your individual business or organisation's needs.

For example:

  • How do you want your central authority to function?
  • What access control policy do you want to use?
  • Do you want to integrate an access control system with other security systems/security technology?

Access management also needs to be integrated properly into an already existing security setup and professional installation can help avoid costly mistakes.

How much does an access control system cost?

Because commercial access control systems must be custom fit, the cost can vary greatly.

For example, pricing can be influenced by 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.
