In today’s climate of fickle threat levels it is vital to ensure that only authorized personnel have access to restricted areas. Electronic security can help achieve this. Our access control solutions have particular features designed to meet the needs of an aviation environment from the advanced monitoring of doors to reduce false alarms to the ability to have a portable reader that can be used to validate staff at remote areas of the airport where cabling infrastructure does not exist. If the identified threat level increases, the operation of the system can be changed to reflect this, meaning individual access levels can be automatically amended and security levels heightened. Beyond the security environment the access control system can be used to help in areas from Health and Safety by allowing only trained operators to use certain equipment to “green” initiatives such as “carpooling” where staff share cars to get to work and the access control system can monitor this to provide reports which can be used to help meet the airports carbon footprint target.
