Access systems

Our door entry systems are designed by us for you. With your needs and requirements understood we can provide door entry systems that are both secure and convenient.

Access control systems can be a bit of a minefield with a huge choice of technologies available, from simple keypad locks to PC based fingerprint biometric access control systems.

We will discuss the various technologies available with you to ensure we specify the right system for your needs. Some of the systems we offer are:

Digital Keypads

Internal & external keypads are a simple and effective means of controlling access, with simple step by step instructions provided to change user codes to maintain security.

Card Swipe & Proximity Access Control

We install a variety of stand-alone or PC based swipe card and proximity access control systems. Proximity systems allow users to simply present their card or keyfob to a reader to gain access.

Intercom/Door Entry Systems

We install a wide range of intercom systems from a simple one button audio intercom through to multi-door video intercom systems. We often integrate intercom systems with other access control systems to provide controlled access solutions for both visitors and staff or residents.

Biometric Access Control Systems

There are many Biometric Access Control systems available, including fingerprint, palm or hand, iris, facial recognition and vein. At STF Solutions Ltd we recognise the importance of installing Biometric systems that are quick and simple to use yet highly effective. Based on this, we have decided to concentrate our Biometric efforts on biometric fingerprint reader technology only.

Closed Circuit Television (CCTV)

STF Solutions Ltd can provide a professional CCTV design, installation and maintenance service. Our company installs the latest CCTV systems and equipment for all types of businesses however large or small.

Standard systems – Full 1080p high definition to deliver the highest resolution pictures over standard coaxial video cable.

Network (or IP) systems – These CCTV cameras result in less cabling and being able to power the CCTV cameras down the cable or via standard power supplies as with standard systems.

Remote Viewing – With most standard and all network systems you can watch live CCTV over the Internet on your laptop or iPhone, iPad or Blackberry etc.


Analytical Intelligent CCTV Systems

Traditional forms of detection such as PIR’s or beam detectors pick up ALL movement within the scene of an image, therefore they create many false alarms. Our analytics can be programmed to detect People or Vehicles ONLY. The system will reduce the number of false alarm reactive call outs from a key holder by displaying ONLY authentic causes of activation.

The Smart Wire analytics feature works by a virtual line drawn on the image to identify when a person enters a restricted zone from a specific direction. An alert is ONLY created when a person’s feet actually crosses the virtual line.

With this system, even low light levels and night time poor images can be analysed for movement. Our system also has a Smart Monitor facility to detect objects left or removed from a scene.

Images are then transmitted to a central station where the images are received with a red box highlighting the cause of the activation. This results in a huge reduction in false alarms and site attendance rates.

TWC Transaction without Customer

This system is also used in supermarkets to display an alert when the till (POS) drawer has been opened by a cashier when there are no customers in the checkout area.

These are just some of the many features offered by our Analytics System, for more information or a demonstration please contact us for further details.

What is the best access control system?

The best access control system depends on the business you operate in and what suits the building you work in.
Small and medium sized sites with a small number of users requiring access control would benefit from a stand-alone access system. This uses a numeric code, PIN with a keypad or by presenting a proximity or magstripe token to gain access into a building.

How much does an access control system cost?

The price of an access control system depends on the size of the site and the amount of access doors which require installation.

What is access control in computer security?

In computer security, access control offers central control via a network. Instructions can be sent to the access systems at each of the doors, giving a business flexible control and allowing you to grant permission to each individual user. Tokens used by the individual to get access into an area can also be managed through the computer, either allowing or blocking access through a door. The system can also be extended by adding features, such as integration with CCTV systems.

What is biometric access control system?

A biometric access control system, programmes access through fingerprint readers, retinal eye scanners or hand geometry readers.

How do access cards work?

Held near an electronic reader, the chip sends data to the antenna coil, which transmits by radio frequency signals back to the reader unit. The data is then checked by the reader to see if it’s correct and a sound indicates whether access has been allowed.

Why is CCTV used?

CCTV is used for surveillance and monitoring, either on the inside or outdoor of a property. The use of video cameras can catch people committing theft or monitor traffic.

How can I access my camera remotely?

To watch your CCTV cameras from anywhere using internet, firstly you need to find the IP address of your security camera, the WAN IP address of your home network and the camera port numbers.
Once you have obtained all the information, to set up an IP camera for remote viewing, open your web browser and enter the URL address, which consists of your WAN IP address and the port number.
You can then access your IP camera online.

What are video analytics in CCTV?

Video analytics are the use of scientific algorithms which automatically detect objects, such as people or vehicles that have been captured via CCTV video images.
