Remote Access Control

Remote Access Control is the process of regulating who enters and leaves the premises and it can also be employed internally to control who can view or use business resources and how.

Keys can be lost, stolen and very easily copied which leaves businesses and their assets vulnerable which can be a high expense to change the locks. Whereas, making use of an access control system can help to minimise overall security risk to a business or organisation.

Benefits of

Remote Access Control

Cost Effective

Remote Access Control systems can be integrated with other security solutions on the premises. The highest specification remote access control system can determine which areas of the building are being used and which need to be lit, heated or cooled accordingly, saving on energy costs. It also removes the cost of keys, replacing keys and locks if they get lost or stolen, meaning the business will be saving money over the course of its life.

Improves Security

All businesses have assets and employees they need to protect whilst maintaining a positive working environment and not restricting people’s access to where they need to be. It’s common where buildings are secured by locks and keys, human error leads to unlocked doors and a big opportunity for criminals to commit theft or damage. VRC’s operators will never verify the entry of anyone that has not been disclosed to us by the business.

Ultimate Convenience

VRC’s remote access control service takes away the hassle of entry and exit to the premises and checking credentials on-site. VRC’s remote access control system makes it easy for employees of businesses with multiple locations or sites to move between them without issue. As the system is linked to VRC’s Remote Video Response Centre it is also very easy to maintain a record of entry and exit, who has access to the building and at what time, as well as identifying consistently late employees, enabling you to manage your workforce effectively.


How It Works

When electronic access cards are lost or stolen, unlike with keys, access rights can be withdrawn immediately which renders the card inactive and prevents unauthorised personnel on the property. If thieves gain access to the property before anyone on the business notices, VRC operators can identify when security was breached and where in the building the intruders are at any given time. We will follow a pre-agreed course of action, notifying the necessary people including any required keyholders that need to attend or emergency services if the threat is viable.

Additionally, if a business is secured by a gate or a barrier operated via an intercom system, this can be directly linked to VRC’s Remote Video Response Centre.  The Centre’s experienced operators can verify the details against agreed procedures or matrix, this may include any frequently received deliveries. If it is verified, the gate or barrier is raised remotely, this is typically through an on-site DVR (Digital Video Recorder). If the details cannot be verified, in accordance with the pre-agreed procedures, they will be refused entry and asked to leave the site.
