Access Control

Access Control

An access control system helps a business to minimize risk and create a safe environment by controlling who can enter a building or access specific areas within the premises. When done well, access control systems should be effortless.

ICT takes this a step further. Our Protege systems offer all-in-one access control solutions that are simple to use, feature rich, and provide seamless integrations and easy expansion.

Not just access control

While access control and intrusion detection systems have traditionally worked independently of each other, ICT brings these together to provide a single cohesive and unified physical security solution. With a single interface to view and control everything you need to keep your property secure, there’s no need to double-up on systems that don’t talk to each other.
