    Door Locks

    Hi,

    I need to get atleast three quotes for electronic swipe card door locks. I've got two companies, one local and one in Oxford, but am struggling to find more. Anyone got any recommendations for a company who can supply and fit these?

    Thanks

    Spoken to Net-Ctrl? They have a sister company that does access control. They may be able to help.

    We used Gough & Kelly who installed a Paxton Net 2 Pro system for us, very good on the whole.

    Advice is don't go for swipe cards, go for proximity sensors, tend to be more reliable and easier for staff to use

    Hi, as @TechMonkey mentioned we do have a security division in the company. I don't know a huge amount about their portfolio but in terms of locks, i'm 90% sure they deal with a solution called Aperio by Assa-Abbloy: Aperio which is a wireless lock solution.

    If this is the sort of solution you were after let me know, and I will ask someone much more knowledgeable than I on the access control side of the business to get in touch.

    When we went for an access control system we had A.C.Leigh price up for SALTO and Surelock Security East Derham priced up for a Paxton solution, it was specced so it secured the same number of doors to an acceptable level.

    Will back Demarcation up on this, you may may a little more but for the hassle proximity is the way forward, so much simpler.

    That's perfect Ben. A.C.Leigh are one of two I've already found (I think you recommended them last time I looked into this). Will look into Surelock Security East.

    Sorry if the description in the OP is misleading. I am actually locking at MiFare locks but tried to give a more generic description. My bad.
