Access Control

An integrated system designed around you

Access Control Systems for Homes or Businesses

MRFS Group is market leader in the installation of electronic access control systems in London and nationwide. We provide design, installation, service and maintenance, supplying innovative products that exactly match customers’ requirements.

These systems provide flexible security and control over who may enter a site or building and when. The solutions we supply cater for one door up to hundreds across multiple sites, making sure your assets are secure at all times.

Installing an access control system may mean you never have to change a lock again. Tokens or cards allow admission through controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or not returned by someone who leaves your company. Barred tokens will not allow access.

Once such equipment is in place, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token/card is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a pre-set period.

These systems also offer flexible management of users’ access rights. For example, all staff may gain admittance through the main door of a building but admission to certain internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there; or entry may only be granted to particular users at certain times of day or night.

Access control systems may need to be integrated with fire detection systems for compliance purposes and door/gate automation and door entry for security and convenience.

At MRFS Group, we have access control systems to cater for all sizes and scales of business. Paxton is one of our partners in this field and its range consists of the Compact, Switch2 and Net2. Should your preference be with another preferred manufacturer then please contact our sales team on 0500 288 999 and discuss your preferences.

Compact range

This option is ideal for smaller sites and internal doors that require lower levels of security, and we offer a practical standalone system. The compact equipment is easy to install, comprising an integrated reader and a control unit that simply connects to a lock and power supply. Administration is also straightforward. These systems come in magnetic stripe, keypad and proximity variants, with card packs for token management provided.

All components of electronic control are contained within the keypad or reader and the compact range is both user-friendly and cost-effective. This type of system is not suitable for exterior doors or high security interior doors. Choose from a range of TOUCHLOCK keypads, CARDLOCK (magnetic stripe) readers and proximity readers, and enjoy the convenience of accessing your building using a code or pin, or by presenting a token to the reader. These systems can be fitted to single or multiple doors, with the option to add more.

Switch2

For premises that require security at a higher level such as apartment For premises that require security at a higher level such as apartment MDU’s (multiple dwelling units) and schools, we offer the Switch2 standalone system. This includes a separate reader and control unit, allowing the unit to be installed outside the premises, reducing opportunities to tamper with it and boosting the security of the premises. The Switch2 system offers an administration token management system like the Compact range and also has proximity, magnetic stripe and keypad varieties, making it suitable for both small and medium-sized sites.

Switch2 systems can be fitted to one or many doors in a building. Further doors may be added. If you are choosing a standalone system but may want to upgrade to a PC based system in the future, Switch2 is the right choice: only the control unit would need to be replaced. Readers and other hardware are compatible with both systems.

Net2

This is a PC based system and is aimed at large businesses with hundreds of doors and up to 50,000 users. It provides easily controlled, centralised administration, even when installed in the most complex of premises. The intuitive software gives customers the ability to tailor the system to their needs at the click of the mouse, giving access to groups or individuals.

Users can also generate reports containing complex information about who has entered certain areas of the premises, making it easy to pin point incidents. And you can view real time footage via an events screen to monitor who is in your building and where.

There are no hidden extras such as per seat licenses, making Net2 one of the most cost-effective systems for access control, and you can load it on to every PC in your building, if required. Net2 offers central control, flexible access permissions and accurate reporting – and all controlled from your desk. Any alterations you make from your PC take place immediately such as adding or barring users and changing permissions.

If you have multiple buildings anywhere in the world, you can control access to all of them from one central location using TCP/IP across your existing network. Permissions for access can be set individually or departmentally, so allowing access to a number of groups is quick and simple, as is setting shift patterns.

In addition to having the flexibility to add the Net2 software to any number of PCs, you can also give different administrative access to each user, and up to five PCs on a network can administer the system simultaneously.

Net2 can be used with proximity, hands free, CARDLOCK (magnetic stripe) and TOUCHLOCK keypads, and is also compatible with a variety of third-party readers, providing ultimate versatility.

All the above are the essentials of a good PC-based access control system but Net2 offers even more functionality.

Burglar alarm integration

Nominate those who have permission to unset and set the burglar alarm: when the user presents their token to the door reader, the alarm will unset prior to the door unlocking. If the alarm is set, only those nominated will be able to access the building. This easy-to-use feature helps prevent false alarms.

 

SMS/email messaging

Through its easy-to-use Triggers and Actions function, Net2 can send SMS or emails when a specified trigger occurs. Get an SMS message sent to your mobile if a door is forced, for example.

 

View IP camera images

See who is at the door before you let them in. View what is happening throughout your building.

 

Control lighting and heating

Turn lights on when you arrive in the morning, turn them off as the alarm is set at night – easy with Triggers and Actions.

 

Hands free

Hands free access control enables any Net2 door equipped with P series proximity readers to achieve hands free ranges of up to 2.5m. Doors can be converted to this method simply by wiring a hands free interface between the reader and control unit. Dedicated tokens are supplied to users who require this type of access. Both standard Net2 and hands free tokens will work on a Net2-equipped door.
