Biometric Security

Once confined to science fiction movies and dreams of the future, Biometric Security Systems could be the ideal solution to your security needs.

Biometric technology identifies individuals automatically by using their biological or behavioural characteristics.

A Biometric is a measurement of a biological characteristic such as fingerprint, iris pattern, retina image, face or hand geometry; or a behavioural characteristic such as voice, gait or signature. Biometric technology uses these characteristics to identify individuals automatically. Ideally the characteristic should be universal, unique to the individual, stable over time and easily measurable.

Following a discussion with our security engineer, we will advise on the best Biometric system for you. Different Biometrics will be more suitable for different applications, depending on whether the aim is to identify someone with their co-operation or from a distance, without their knowledge.

Our bespoke Biometric systems mean that this ingenious technology can be applied to a number of different applications such as access control and door entry.

Card Swipe Security

Swipe card readers offer a low-cost, flexible, easily maintained means of controlling entry to/exit from, premises.

Easily adaptable, they can be fitted to many different internal and external doors and to other entry points, such as gates and barriers. As each card is individual, you can restrict access to specific areas, for example, computer server rooms, and can automatically record who went where and when.

The occupants of a building carry a small swipe card that incorporates a magnetic stripe storing individual identification and access policy data. Unlike proximity reader systems, the card is read by physical contact with a reading head on a dedicated reader located outside a door, turnstile or other entry barrier. The user swipes the card in the reader and may then be asked to key in a PIN number as further validation.

There can be hundreds of cards on one system and individual users can be easily added into the system. Lost, broken cards and cards allocated to people who have left the organisation, can be effortlessly deleted.

External card readers can be housed in a weatherproof, vandal-resistant casing, making them long-lasting and resilient.

Our experienced team of security engineers can integrate your swipe card readers with a range of other door entry technologies including:

  • Electric gates and barriers
  • Rising bollard systems
  • Proximity readers
  • Biometric readers
  • Audio entry systems
  • Video entry systems
Keypad Entry Systems

Locks and keys allow you to secure your building, but when keys are lost or stolen, the cost of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be a considerable expense. Keys can also be copied, further reducing the security of your buildings and assets.

A simple keypad entry system from EFT Systems will greatly increase your security and will guard against the costs associated with mishandled keys and locks.

Our experienced team can ensure that the right keypad system for your business is installed, incorporating such elements as time control and automatically updating entry codes, further increasing your security and safety.

Proximity Reader Security

Proximity readers are an alternative method of access control to more traditional systems such as swipe card readers. They allow a person access by checking card/fob data from a variable distance. No contact is necessary between the card/fob and the reader, therefore the time taken to gain access approval is greatly reduced.

This type of system is ideal for turnstiles or secure areas with high volumes of traffic.

Our experienced team of security engineers can integrate your proximity readers with a range of other door entry technologies including:

  • Electric gates and barriers
  • Rising bollard systems
  • Proximity readers
  • Biometric readers
  • Audio entry systems
  • Video entry systems
