Access Control


Do you have control of your premises?


Do you know who is present, where they are and exactly how long they have been on site for?


If you have not invested in having this information, you really should.


Over the last 30 years, Crism Security has designed, installed and maintained over 1200 access control systems in numerous buildings.

Be it at universities and colleges in Sheffield, Durham, Nottingham, Exeter and Manchester or be it in hospitals in Scarborough, Sheffield and Chesterfield, or at banks including Natwest/Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and the Trustee Savings Bank (TSB).

Our systems offer total control over everyone on your site. You know where they are, which parts of your site they have visited and for how long. You can restrict access to sensitive areas. Your staff will feel much more secure and your insurance company may reduce your premiums.

Just leave your name, telephone number and a brief, one-line description of your request and we’ll be talking to you before you know it

Our consultants will be more than happy to discuss your requirements in terms of the level of security you want and the technology that most cost effectively satisfies your needs.

For example, it may be that you just require time and attendance information on your employees and visitors.

However,  you may also require high security around the areas where you store and use sensitive information and intellectual property such as computer servers, databases and other proprietary information.

You need to be sure that your access control system will be installed to create a secure

environment that feels right for you and your employees.

The latest biometric systems ensure that there will be no lending of fobs and ‘passing on’ of access codes, ensuring no unauthorised or unfamiliar faces are wandering around your building.

Access control systems can interact with your lighting and heating systems to switch them off when nobody is in that section and reduce your utilities costs.

And the good news is that our systems log everything, which is extremely useful if there are accidents, insurance related incidents or health and safety issues for both staff or visitors.


You will be confident that your access control system is a business investment that produces a high rate of return.

You control which employees and visitors have access to your data and other intellectual property. And we will maintain the effectiveness of your system as technology advances.
