Access Control Systems

Access Control – combining security with convenience

With over 40 years of experience in access control, the CIA’s workforce and visitor management systems are skillfully designed to suit sites of all sizes and complexity – everything from a single site to multiple site enterprise. Its primary function is to help make life easier while increasing security and protecting staff and property.

Being both NSI NACOSS Gold certificated and an MLA approved locksmith does give us the edge over many other access control installers. We’ll work with you to select the right technology for your application, from PIN number keypads, swipe cards and key fobs, to complex biometric systems, from brands like Paxton and Comelit and will install your system with unsurpassed workmanship.

Whether it is master key suiting, a simple stand-alone electronic solution or a sophisticated networked system designed to integrate with other existing security installations, such as intruder alarms and CCTV, CIA can deliver.

We cover the South of England (view full coverage area), including Berkshire, Dorset, East Sussex, Hampshire, Surrey, West Sussex and Wiltshire.
