CSI | Why Access Control? 

Nothing is more vital to the health of an organization than making sure that its people, material assets and operations are safe and secure.

CSI | Access Control

Asset Protection

Access control addresses the full scope of risks that might arise, including risks that other security systems such as burglar alarms and intrusion detection are simply not designed to handle.

By preventing people from entering places where they do not belong, access control protects against theft as well as liability and disruption to your operations.

Access control can also integrate with other security and operational systems to give you a comprehensive, cohesive management tool.


One of the biggest advantages that our access control systems offers is the ability to determine quickly who may have gained access to critical areas before and after an incident. Even our smallest, single door applications have reporting available that shows an audit trail of door access activity, while our mid-range and large-scale systems can provide in-depth, user-defined documentation.


Access control enhances security by eliminating the need for keys, which are easily lost or duplicated and disappear when terminated employees fail to return them. By using our access control cards or fobs you can quickly and conveniently adjust or delete privileges any time an employee’s status changes. If you install our access control software on a networked system, you can even perform these tasks from a remote location. Avoiding the annual expense of re-keying a facility is just one of the many financial benefits you will accrue from investing in an access control system.


Profitability at warehouses and distribution centres depends on efficiency and security, making sure the right people are in the right place at the right time, and keeping out those who should not be there. Our access control systems help you do this, controlling access to improve employee productivity and punctuality.


Certain work environments can be hazardous, especially where there is heavy equipment or intense activity. Our access control systems help you ensure that only authorized individuals enter these areas.


By restricting who gains entry to your property, our access control systems limit your exposure to liability for “slip and fall” cases while also reducing the risk of workplace violence and more. With litigation and work-related assaults costing businesses billions of dollars each year, organizations simply no longer can afford to do without this kind of protection.
