Door Entry Systems, Southend

Home entry systems can be used for all types of house AND apartments in a block of flats. They allow you to talk to or see people before opening your door.

And, with a smart intercom system, you can view them from the comfort of your sofa. So you don’t have to get up for annoying salesmen or worry about late night visitors.

These intercom entry systems give you peace of mind that you home is secure, leaving you to relax in comfort.

It’s not just security that they offer either, ease of access is also taken care of. Proximity readers give you the ability to enter or grant access to your home without the fuss of keys.

Older residents can take advantage of the timed access. This means they can set a specific time for the door to be unlocked. And carers can gain entrance – without the person inside having to get up or provide a key to the property.

    The specific features that door entry systems have vary, depending on what you need them for. The main systems offered are:

    Audio Door Intercom Systems – Hear

    These audio only systems allow you to hear the visitor through a door intercom system so that you can verify their identity and allow them entry to your home at the press of a button.

    Video Door Entry System – Hear and See

    With the ability to both see and hear your visitor, the video entry system takes your home security to the next level. Especially useful for verifying ID badges before answering to delivery drivers and gas engineers, these systems can prevent you becoming the victim of a distraction burglary.

    Door Entry Systems for homes in rented apartment blocks

    Landlords can also take advantage of this modern technology, it’s great for shared buildings / apartment blocks. A common trick by fraudsters is to buzz hear-only systems and pretend to be a delivery man for another resident. With the ability to see the caller as well, easy visual verification makes life much more secure for everyone in the building.

    Door Intercoms that suit your home decor

    With each of these access control appliances, quality in design is very important. The intercom panel is going to be on the front of your home, which is why we install only top quality products which are aesthetically pleasing, whilst still offering maximum protection.

    Once you’ve chosen the alarm system you’d prefer, then it’s time to choose a trustworthy and professional installer.

    Standalone systems or integrations

    Security solutions like intercom entry systems can be standalone for individual doors and automatic gates.

    Or they can be integrated with an existing security system like CCTV cameras to grant access.

    It’s all down to your specific requirements. And whether you are a homeowner or managing security for commercial properties.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What's the difference between access control and a door entry system?

    Access control can cover a whole variety of security from automated gates and bollards for vehicles to time and attendance for employees. As the name suggests, a Door Entry System can be a standalone installation for an individual front door. Or even automatic gates to prevent strangers from coming onto your property at all.

    Do I need a door entry system for my house or apartment block?

    A home door entry system is a great security solution if:

    • you don’t want to protect your home from distraction burglars;
    • you want to know who is at the door before you open it;
    • you want to be able to let visitors in without having to get up;
    • you get irritated having to stop what you’re doing and answer the door to cold callers.

    It can be installed as a stand alone intercom system or integrated with other ways to control the entrance of visitors to your property – like your alarm or CCTV.

    How much do door entry systems in Essex cost?

    It depends. Do you need audio visual or just audio intercom systems?
    Do you want an intercom system or a proximity card reader?
    Do you want a standalone or integrated installation?
    If you choose an installer who is on the other side of Essex to your property, they may charge for travelling to your job.

    As security experts, we always do a site survey to make sure we are fitting the best access control system for your specific needs.
