Access Control

GlobalTek Security offers Access Control suited to your company’s specific requirements.

We know the right questions to ask to ensure the right Access Control for your company. Our systems come with full-featured local and remote access software. Your required software version is dependent on a series of factors, such as the number of doors, total sites requiring monitoring (if there’s multiple), and which cardholders will be accessing the system. GlobalTek’s Access Solution Specialists are IT-certified and will determine the right system award-winning version for your site.

Software Features

Remote Connectivity: With our secure PC software, users can connect and monitor their systems from anywhere. Lock/unlock doors remotely, respond to and clear alarms, add new cardholders, view surveillance video feeds, and more.

Maximum Door Control: GlobalTek offers a variety of options for door access management, including alerts if a door remains propped after entry, pre-scheduling for lock/unlock times, and alarm mapping that will pinpoint the specific area of the breach on the security platform.

Detailed Data: GlobalTek’s software gathers data while monitoring your facilities, allowing for detailed records and reports. Access information such as door-specific “last entry” reports are available, how often a door was opened, and when it was used.

Photo Recall: When integrated with GlobalTek’s identification software and video surveillance, our “Photo Recall” platform displays User Photos coupled with cardholder records when a door is accessed, ensuring that only appropriate personnel are using the cards.

Cardholder Management: Rather than assign specific access rights to each User, the software allows for the creation of “access groups” to which users can be assigned. This includes different access and authority levels at different times to each group. You can also manage unexpected business closures and/or holidays to ensure that the normal schedule doesn’t activate and override the special schedule.

Last Access Granted: This sophisticated software allows you to view the last door a cardholder accessed, along with date and time. Administrators can search for inactive cardholders and deactivate and/or delete dormant users at any time, with a stroke of the keyboard.

Video Integration: GlobalTek’s award-winning surveillance makes for an even more powerful platform when you integrate both video and card access. Users can call up recorded video from an opened door, view video from a triggered alarm, check multiple angles for a single door, and much more.

Lockout/Lockdown: Immediately secure your entire facility or even pre-determined “zone groups” with the press of a button. This in effect isolates threats while keeping your personnel safe and secure. Card override capabilities (yet an additional feature) also adds extra layers of security too.

Fire Doors: When required, our proprietary system software can also activate and alarm fire doors that are controlled by “PGM” to trigger your commercial fire panel. Once the premises have been approved to re-enter, the doors reset and the system returns to normal operational use…automatically.

No More Lost Keys

When an employee quits, and fails to return his or her company keys, the business is stuck with the expense of making new keys and possibly even changing the locks. The same would apply when an employee loses his or her company keys. However, with an Access Control System, the business can simply remove the employee’s access card from the system and issue a new card when necessary.

Know Who’s Coming and Going

Many businesses have merchandise and other property with a street value. It’s certainly unfortunate to learn someone you’ve given access to is stealing from your business from within. For example, laboratories, doctor offices, clinics, pharmacies and any business or organization with pharmaceutical drugs on hand are at risk of having property stolen every day. But an Access Control System keeps track of who’s coming and who’s going, logging every entry and exit of each individual. With an Access Control System, a business is able to track who comes and goes and what time they arrive and leave.

No Undetected Strangers

If a business is large with a lot of employees, it can be difficult for everyone to know who is an employee and who is not. An Access Control System helps prevent strangers from slipping in undetected.

Reduce Chaos of After-hour Shifts

If a business has multiple shifts with large groups of employees coming and going at odd hours, an Access Control System can help organize the chaos.

Secure Sensitive Information

Perhaps a business holds trade secrets or sensitive information and needs to make sure only employees with the right clearance level have access to the area it is held. An Access Control System allows a business to limit the access to certain areas. Any business with secure data should consider an Access Control System.

Increase Safety

An Access Control System increases the safety of employees when entering a business. It is much faster to swipe a card than to fumble around for a key. Plus, keys are easily duplicated, while an access card is not.

Reduce Theft and Accidents

An Access Control System allows a business to give only approved or specially trained employees access to designated areas. For example, a business might want to limit who has access to a supply room, so they can keep better track of supplies. Or a business might want to limit who has access to areas with hazardous chemicals or equipment, so they can reduce the likelihood of an untrained employee being injured.

Control Multiple Access Across Multiple Properties

Many businesses have multiple locations. An Access Control System will not only allow a business to limit access to those employees who only need to enter one building but will also allow access to those employees who need to enter all buildings. Access Control Systems are not just for businesses. Apartment Complexes, Community Centers, Parking Garages, and even College Campuses all have found great benefit to using an Access Control System. The top benefit being when a person with access leaves, a business or organization no longer needs to worry about replacing locks or keys. They simply delete the person’s access from the system and they are done. It’s as simple as that!

    When a battery is getting too weak and needs replacing, your system may send you an alert or show ‘Lo Bat’ on the keypad display. 

    • Hardwired Alarm Panels requires (x1) 12 volt, 4, 5, 7 or 8 Amp Sealed Lead Acid battery. The size of the battery depends upon your specific panel and the types of equipment you have installed on your system. Make sure you purchase the same size battery as the one you are about to replace. Wireless systems back up batteries differ, so it is always best to contacts service. Most of the time your battery is covered under warranty. Before you replace the battery, put your system into test mode to prevent false alarms.
    • Open your system’s panel. (If you need a key to open your panel a key is often left on top of the panel or screws may be used if no key lock was installed.) After opening the panel, disconnect the wires on your battery by gently tugging on the red and black.

  • 7. How do I replace a door/window sensor battery?

    When the battery in your door/window contact needs to be replaced, a “zone trouble light ” or “check” indicator will appear on your alarm keypad. You should replace the battery as soon as these indicators appear.

    • A door and window contact require (1) CR123 3 volt battery (in some systems, the door and window contact will be a very slim device and will contain a single, CR2032 battery or a standard AAA battery). This battery can often be purchased at your local hardware, mass retailer or battery store. DO NOT USE CHEAP BATTERIES FROM THE DOLLAR STORE, this may cause your device to leak battery acid.
    • Before you replace the battery, put your system into test mode to prevent false alarms.
    • From the menu, select System Management.
    • Select Place System on Test. (Note: You can also call 1.844.77 (ALARM). to put your system into test mode.) To change the battery, use a flathead screwdriver to push in the tab on the end of the contact. An arrow on the front of the contact points to where the tab is located. Replace the battery, observing the proper polarity. Then, replace the front cover by snapping it into place.

  • 10. How does a door or window sensor work?

    A door or window sensor is typically a two-piece magnetic contact sensor. When the system is armed, and a door or window is opened, the two magnetic sensors are separated from each other, thereby tripping the alarm. 
    If a protected door or window with a sensor is open, you will not be able to arm the system until the door or window is closed or the zone is bypassed. If your door or window sensor is causing false alarms, the door or window may not be securely closed, or the sensor may be damaged. Swelling or contracting of the door or window due to changing weather may also result in false alarms.
  • 11. Can I move a sensor?

    YES, (Place the system on test)
    Hardwired sensors may be moved if the client is capable to remove and reinstall without damaging the device. Always test the system after removal and reinstallation. Wireless devices have tamper switches and will cause a tamper trouble when opened. Place the system on test prior to doing anything. Always test the device after being moved. On all situations you are required to contact GlobalTek Security to update your zones location.
