Access Control Systems Designed to Protect Your Business

Midwest Alarm Services is a leader in the design, installation and support of advanced access control hardware and software. We design it to deliver maximum protection for the following:

Commercial and Industrial Businesses

Hospitals & Healtchare Facilities

Colleges and Universities

K-12 Schools

Detention Centers

Our partners, such as PCSC, LenelS2, Axis, and Sielox, create access control systems that protect sensitive information and data through the use of coded badges and key cards. Our access control systems are also the perfect accompaniment to your CCTV video surveillance system.


Three Types of Commercial Access Control Systems

Discretionary Access Control (DAC). Card access means the business owner is accountable for deciding who is allowed to enter a certain area — digitally or physically. DAC is the least restrictive compared to the other sensitive data systems because it gives you control over the objects you own, as well as the people or programs associated with said objects.

Managed Access Control (MAC). When there aren’t enough resources to manage access control in-house, MAC comes to the rescue. Midwest Alarm administers the programming, cardholder database management and reporting services for you so you can maintain a secure facility without having to become an access control expert.

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). RBAC is one of the most popular access control solutions across different organizations. This system allows an administrator to assign access. All assignments are based on the subject’s role within the organization and all privileges are limited according to an individual’s responsibilities.

Benefits of Access Control Systems

Effective access control systems are business essentials that curb security threats, giving you and your team peace of mind. With access control systems and solutions in place, you can determine who has permission to use or see sensitive data or enter the premises.

Restrictions for Certain Areas 
Access control features like keycards enable organizations to control who has access to a specific or restricted area in the office.

Duplication Made More Difficult 
Individuals with intentions to duplicate physical keys would be unable to do so due to the keyless entry feature. Access control key cards make it more difficult for intruders to duplicate keys. Lost keycards will require multiple authentication procedures and changing of the codes, too.

Protect Your Valuables 
Internal theft is a real issue. In the event of an individual using their keycard to steal company valuables, you will know who did it. Access control systems can be managed from any computer connected to your network.

Multi-Location Access 
Organizations with multiple branches can use role-based access control systems to simplify a manager’s job of visiting multiple locations. Instead of having physical keys, they can have one keycard for different locations.
