Parking Barrier with access control system

Parking

The parking control module allows a simple capacity control for your car park. It ensures important members of staff and visitors will always have a parking space. Once the set capacity is reached the access control system can deny access and send a signal to a display panel to notify people the car park is full. The car parking module is ideally coupled with our long range reading solutions as this allows the barrier to open automatically when your car approaches. 

Lift Control

The lift module allows you to restrict which floors a cardholder can access from the lift. The cardholder enters the lift and places his credential on a reader within the lift cab. The cardholders permissions would dictate which floor buttons can be pressed.  Lift destination control is especially useful for buildings containing multiple tenants.

Site Planning

Multi-Site

The multi-site module is ideal for applications where access at many sites need to be managed centrally. For example this module is highly useful for organisations with several independent branches that wish to let local branches view and control only their own sites, while still retaining the ability for overall management to be done from the site headquarters. The Multi-Site module allows all the records in the database (controllers, readers, cardholders, etc.) To be divided into the different sites. Each user of GuardPointPro can be authorised to view/modify one or more sites.
