Access Control Systems
that Make Your World Safer
See how our Access Control Systems can help you.
When securing access to a commercial property, government facility, school, or factory, scalable access control is an essential component.
Whether centralized management or compartmentalized control is required, Active Solutions works with you to analyze and present the solution best suited to your needs and environment.
Identifying what is important to your organization helps stakeholders secure sensitive areas and easily audit ingress and egress to controlled areas while minimizing inconvenience for your personnel.
By creating a centralized area of control, managers can easily adjust the safety parameters on doors or sensitive areas for staff or visitors.
Touch-free access minimizes viral and bacteria transmission, improving employee health and convenience and ease of access.
Smart credentials reduce deployment time and replacement costs and allow for instantaneous management of credential addition, modification, or access credential cancellation. Smart credentials improve overall user satisfaction.

Access Control Systems
With so many options in the market, choosing the correct access control system for your facility is a process. Let our team guide you through that process and identify your specific requirements.
There is a variety of nontraditional “keys” that are used with electronic access control systems:
- RFID fobs and cards
- Eye, face or hand biometrics
- Smartphone as a credential
- Smart card
Access Control is Critical to Security
Traditional locks and keys have limited applications for securing a facility. Keys can be copied or lost which represents a breach in security. In addition, retrieving keys from former disgruntled employees can represent a risk that many companies cannot afford.
By moving to nontraditional “keys,” a facility opens up significantly better opportunities to control the movement of employees, to protect sensitive information or data, to safeguard business assets, and to monitor the flow of personnel.
Goals of electronic Access Control
Loss Prevention & Risk ReductionRestricting access is the first step to loss prevention and reducing risk. An access control system protects your most valuable assets, whether inventory or personnel.
Access control systems allow administrators to manage where people can go and when. This control can include granting temporary or emergency access from a centralized onsite location or even authorized remote or mobile devices. One-touch facility lockdown is an important option. Automated access management can reduce manpower requirements with better control through systematization.
Audits & Reports
Automated systems track the time and date of entry, the people who accessed an area, whether access was granted or denied, and which area was entered, including forced entry alerts. This allows you to identify patterns within your system or analyze incidents.
Access control systems can be integrated with your video surveillance system, providing instantaneous live video of access events in a control center or on portable devices. Instant access to archived video from access control log files provides for streamlined investigation of events.
Integrate Access Control Systems with Video Security
Pairing a video security system with an access control system can enhance the return on investment for loss prevention. Many companies may need to have a live feed or historical data on entry points or secured areas. Because we are able to provide integration across a broad range of products, we can build out a system that protects your assets, clients, and properties.
Integrate Access Control Systems with Data Security
Single sign-on systems tie into your personnel management and Active Directory servers that control the flow of information in real time. Access control systems can augment the sign-in with multiple forms of credentials such as biometric requirements, cell phone keycodes, Bluetooth proximity, or other forms of contactless or multi-factor authentication.
Integrate Access Control Systems with Building Automation
Access control systems can conserve power and reduce load at times of inactivity. You can meet LEED certification requirements or qualify for tax breaks based on your building’s efficient management of integrated systems like HVAC and lighting.
