What is the cheapest way to install biometric access control on my office?
Here at Sensor Access, we understand the need for security on peoples buildings so to reduce the cost of people wanting to install biometric fingerprint based access control systems we have launched our new Guardpoint 10 access control system which when used in conjunction with our 4 port controllers results in a significant fall in price.
Why is it cheaper with Guardpoint 10 and the 4 port controllers?
Normally if you install a biometric access control system for a building with 40 doors you would also have to install 40 controllers (one for each door).
With Guardpoint 10 and our 4 port controllers you only need to buy 10 controllers as opposed to forty, it doesn’t take a mathematician to see how this reduces the total cost of the installation.
Sensor Access is proud to announce that the company Elcon Nova has been awarded “Technical Excellence of the EMEA region”. Elcon Nova is a long-standing partner of Sensor Access in Egypt.
Elcon Nova was given this award based on:
- Adding value to the GuardPoint solution with bespoke integrations. For example CCTV integration, creating custom T/A applications, and an application that allows transactions to be added manually for people who have forgotten their card.
- Implementing GuardPoint’s Advanced features such as actions and processes, redundancy, integrated alarm management, counters and sophisticated reflexes using commands from other solutions.
- High-quality hardware installations with further customization with hardware meeting specific customer needs. For example, making a multi-controller power supply and housing.
The CEO Mr. Hazem Al Far and his team have the passion to provide customers the best of breed solutions backed up by 1st class installation and after-sales service with sites running successfully for its entire lifespan.
The new 2018 brochure from sensor access features our new GuardPoint10 Software. Learn what makes GuardPoint10 a cutting edge and pioneering access control software. http://www.sensoraccess.co.uk/guardpoint10/
Sensor’s GuardPoint software integrates License Plate Number Recognition (LPNR) – a full number plate reading and recognition system for vehicle access control such as car parks, reserved areas and airports.
This module plays an essential role in managing and restricting traffic and personnel flow to and from your site, with overall monitoring of staff parking.
How does it work?
A special camera is needed that is designed to act as a reader in a vehicle access control situation. As a car approaches, the camera reads the license plate which is then matched against the database of license plates previously entered into the access control system (GuardPoint). If there is a match, the corresponding user ID is sent to the access panel associated with the gate, and is granted access.
License Plate Number Recognition is a highly accurate system, capable of reading vehicle number plates without the need for human intervention regardless of time of day, speed of vehicle or climate. This is accomplished through the use of high speed image capture, detection of license plate characters within the images provided, and the decoding authorisation process. All user data is stored in your present access control system.
The Benefits of LPNR:
– Control multiple locations/barriers in different car parks
– Recognise all license plates with numbers and letters
– Fully comprehensive reporting features
– Fast and efficient access control
– Fully automated functionality: reducing overall labour costs
– High quality and functional cameras: ensures shorter queues in peak times getting in or out from work
– Housing: designed for easy mounting on walls and poles
– All sourced images can be exported to JPEG format
– Monitors number plates both day and night

The Guard Tour module is often overlooked in the GuardPointPro access control system.
This module allows you to utilise your existing access control system for guard patrol tours, as well as allowing you to accurately monitor times and movements of your security personal.
How does it work?
The Guard Tour facility allows various points on the premises to be defined as checkpoints which make up a ‘Guard Tour’. These points may be simple alarm points such as push buttons and key operated systems, or specific readers where the guard must pass a badge.

The Benefits of a Guard Tour include:
Simplicity – all information is stored in the Guard Point Software, accessible at any time including a history log of all guard tours in secure databases
Accountability – ability to track and create digital footprints of employees as well as achieve real-time management and guard-tour monitoring
Automation – ability to configure reports to be sent to clients in real time
Data Analysis – allows for the remote monitoring and analysis of data, with the option for real-time notifications
Remote Management – ability to relieve time-consuming paper procedures of assigning tasks and managing multiple areas, offering data interoperability and extensive management and communication

UK and EMEA Sales Manager
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Barrett to Sensor Access as our UK and EMEA Sales Manager.
Paul has over 25 years of experience in the security industry, on both the installation and manufacturing sides of the business. His knowledge in how to manage a security company has allowed him to demonstrate what he feels are important issues and challenges for our customers.
Since Paul has joined us in September, he has been focusing on who our customers are and how we can best assist them in gaining contracts, increasing their margins and securing maintenance contracts. With this in mind, we have employed a new route to market that will allow companies to differentiate themselves, and a genuinely different partner programme that rewards companies with more than just a glass paperweight and a pat on the back.
Paul has said: “The Sensor Access control products already stand out from the crowd: quality built hardware, feature rich, with an intuitive and reliable software used by both engineers and system users alike – a characteristic considered a rarity. I genuinely believe that we and our customers have a fantastic opportunity to change the Access Control market for the better. Of course, it often comes down to pricing and margins but ultimately it is about a company’s reputation and how it values its customers. Value is what we will be offering our customers and this will allow them to do the the same for theirs.”
