Access control is a system that is used to control when and who has permission to enter a building or part of a building. This system increases the security of the overall building as well as the people and valuables within the premises. This system is usually controlled via access cards, tags, or biometrics.

Access control is a massive benefit to any business or site, as it eliminates the need for traditional keys which can easily go missing and can get used by a restricted individual to gain access to the premises. Restricting your access points allows you to track who enters and leaves, which is extremely helpful in the event of an incident, accident, or theft. Access control also helps protect your staff from outside threats that may occur as the building is restricted to outsiders.

There are many different forms of access control to heighten your security. TTK surveillance offer a range of access control systems that when used in conjunction with our off-site monitoring offering, guarantee that your building is secure 24/7.

Some of our access control offerings can be broken up in the following categories:

Intercom Systems - Access Control - TTK Surveillance


Our intercoms as a form of access control help ease communication between visitors and homeowners. They are mainly used for houses, apartments, and complexes/estates. These intercoms are integrated with our CCTV cameras to offer more intelligence and more security, as homeowners are able to visually see who is outside their premise, allowing them to either permit the visitor or call for assistance if there is suspicious activity. These visuals can be accessed through smart devices, allowing clients to access the videos, even when they are away, as well as allow or deny access from anywhere.
