Colne Valley Security design, install and maintain access control security systems for domestic and commercial customers throughout Essex. Integrated access control solutions go one step beyond the role of a traditional intercom system. This kind of network stores information about who enters your site and prevents unauthorised visitors from accessing parts of your building by means of personalised digital permissions.

What is Access Control?

The purpose of access control is to grant entrance to a building or office to those who are authorised to be there. Long gone are the days for a deadbolt lock; businesses now require some modern and high-tech, a bespoke system that is able to control who passes through their doors and to monitor and manage access. Electronic access control systems help to provide quick, convenient access to authorised people whilst denying access to unauthorised ones.

Why Use an Access Control System?

Locks and keys can secure a building, but if they happen to get lost of stolen, the inconvenience and expenses of changing an entire buildings locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys can even be copied, which creates an even higher security risk.

No matter how big or small your business is, there will always be assets that need to be protected from theft, and the issue of protecting staff and the property. Not having the correct level of security can open up the possibility of an opportunist theft or someone to cause malicious damage.

The obvious reason for using such a system would be for the physical security to monitor who has access to the building, but there are also several other reasons why businesses might need a bespoke access control system, including:


  • Hospitals, doctor’s surgery and health insurance companies need to comply with health data regulations.
  • Banks, insurance companies and any businesses that accept and process credit cards are subject to PCI credit card data regulations.

IP Data

Businesses that deal with privileged data and intellectual property, such as software developers, entrepreneurs and start-ups need to control who comes into their facilities and which areas they are allowed access to.

Electronic access control provides an efficient and convenient way of securing a building and its assets. Our bespoke access control systems in Essex will ensure you will never need to worry about a key again.

Where Can the Control System Be Used?

Our access control security systems Essex can be used wherever you need them to, whether it be for doors, gates, garages and even lifts. The system doesn’t just need to be installed on just one door, it can be installed on a variety of entry points. The access system can also cover as little or as many premises required.
