Standalone systems


We manufacture two standalone systems, offered to satisfy both low and medium-high security applications.


Compact system


A standalone solution where all of the control electronics are in the keypad or reader. Compact systems are an easy to administer and cost-effective means of controlling access to a building. However, as the control electronics are all housed in the reader or keypad this type of system is not recommended for exterior or high security interior doors. Compact systems are available in a choice of TOUCHLOCK keypads, PROXIMITY readers or CARDLOCK (magstripe) readers.

Access is gained by using a code or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a valid token to readers. Simple token management using our token packs makes administration straightforward.

Compact systems can be fitted to one door or many doors in a building. Additional doors may be added as required.

Key features

  • 10,000 users Proximity & CARDLOCK), up to 50 codes (TOUCHLOCK)
  • Simple token management
  • Scaleable; systems can be added to easily
  • Available as Proximity, magstripe (CARDLOCK) or keypads (TOUCHLOCK)

Typical applications

  • Small business premises
  • Sports clubs
  • Any low-risk internal door
  • Apartment complexes
  • Storage units

Example systems



Switch2 system


A standalone solution, which uses a separate control unit for higher security. The Switch2 control unit is housed on the inside or safe side of the door. The control unit is used in conjunction with a Paxton reader or keypad. This provides higher security than a compact system. Switch2 is the standalone solution for external and higher security internal doors.

Switch2 systems are available with a choice of Proximity or CARDLOCK (magstripe) readers or TOUCHLOCK keypads. Switch2 has a larger range of compatible readers than Compact and may also be used with a combined keypad/proximity reader. Access is gained by using a code or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a valid token to readers. Simple token management using our token packs makes administration straightforward.

Switch2 systems can be fitted to one or many doors in a building. Additional doors may be added as required.

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.

Key features

  • 10,000 users Proximity & CARDLOCK), up to 50 codes (TOUCHLOCK)
  • Separate control unit and reader (high security)
  • Simple token management
  • Scaleable; systems can be added to easily
  • Relay output
  • Available as Proximity, magstripe (CARDLOCK) or keypads (TOUCHLOCK)

Typical applications

  • Small business premises
  • Sports clubs
  • Schools
  • Apartment complexes
  • Storage units
  • Sites requiring high security
  • Carpark barriers

Example systems



Administration


The administration of both Compact and Switch2 systems is identical.

TOUCHLOCK keypads: Once installed a code is set and given to authorized users. Users gain access by entering this code into the keypad, the door unlocks and they are granted access. Codes may be changed on a regular basis to maintain security. The change needs to be made at each door.

Proximity and CARDLOCK: You will be supplied with a pack of user tokens. The system is commissioned with the enrolment card, which is in the token pack. The enrolment card gives the reader a unique identity code. All of the user tokens in the pack are immediately valid. A token is issued to the user. The user gains access by presenting the token to the door reader, the door unlocks and they are granted access.

The token packs contain a shadow card, which is the ‘twin’ of the user token. When the user token is issued the name of the person should be written on the shadow card. In the event of a user token being lost or stolen, the shadow card is taken from the pack and presented to all of the door readers on the site. This immediately bars the lost user token. If found and presented to a reader it will not grant access. If required, the token may be reinstated onto the system by using the enrolment card.


More sophisticated features


In addition to only allowing authorized people to enter a building, our standalone PROXIMITY and CARDLOCK systems can restrict access to a particular area to a specified group of users. This is called ‘controlling access by colour zone’.
