Access Control Systems Dublin

Aid Electrical & Security based in Dublin are experts at installing the latest access control technologies including market leading systems.

We have worked with all sizes of client and on all types of job, installing and maintaining single control point solutions through to multi-entry role-based site access control systems linked to a central monitoring station at big hospitals, hotels and commercial sites.



There are three main keyless entry technologies available. These are:

  • RFID (radio frequency identification) operating proximity door locks, through the use of a proximity card reader with proximity key fobs and key cards
  • Biometric access control systems using fingerprint or retina readers
  • Access control card readers, using smart cards or swipe cards

Each system is unique to the premises at which it’s installed. Aid Electrical & Security works carefully with each client to install an access security system tailored to their specific needs, including standard gate control or complete turnstile systems, ideal for office receptions. We have designed and installed hotel, school and office systems.

While the concept is simple and access control systems have been around for some time, the technology hasn’t stood still. We have been working at the forefront of access control technology for more than 20 years, and Aid Electrical & Security are more efficient and adaptable than ever.

Powerful access control software

When fitting out premises with several controlled gates or doors it is usual to link them to a PC-controlled system. Intuitive and sophisticated software links the card issuing system with a personnel database. This allows security staff to issue fobs or cards, linking them with personnel and other information and defining personalised or role based access levels. Time and attendance packages can be added to the basic system to allow effective and efficient access control management. Cards can also include photo ID using fast ‘magicard’ printers, with the computer linked to webcam and instant card printing to speed up security clearance for new starters.

Networked access control systems

Networked access control systems provide affordable and expandable access control solutions for schools, businesses and more. They also offer a multitude of administrative benefits, including time and attendance software, fire roll call reports, security lock down and anti-pass back. You can integrate a networked access control system with other systems such as your fire alarm or intruder alarm and expand it as your business grows. Add new users, new doors and even new buildings as and when required. 

Access control security & CCTV integration

Integrating access control with CCTV has many benefits. Firstly, when someone unlocks a door the system can alert a pan tilt zoom (PTZ) camera. The camera can then point at the specific door and start recording. It can also alert a camera to start recording at a higher frame rate when the door opens. With most systems, you can access CCTV footage via the access control software. You can also receive email and text alerts when a person opens or unlocks a door, or leaves it open.
