Managing Access for Improved Security and Control
Access control is necessary to protect the workplace from unauthorised entry. Crown’s Access Control can be used to protect your people, your workplace, enforce health and safety procedures or prevent casual theft.
Additionally, it can be used to control access to specific sites, departments and other internal areas for authorised employees, contractors or visitors. Entry can be restricted via perimeter or internal doors, turnstiles, lift doors or car park barriers. Access Control fully integrates with all aspects of Crown’s Workforce Management Suite and utilises the same employee ID badge as that used for clockings and activity bookings. Similarly, the system is fully scalable and has no limitations on the number of sites, doors or barriers.

- Utilises the same employee ID badge as that used for clockings and activity bookings
- Designed for simple configuration; especially suited to organisations with large numbers of employees
- Compatible with Timeclocks and time booking terminals
Control of Entrances and Exits
Access is allowed or denied according to user-defined tables set within the suite. These detail which people can have access, when they can have access (days and times) and through which access points. The system has been designed for simple configuration and is especially suited to organisations with large numbers of employees.
The system supports a wide variety of technologies; including barcode, magnetic stripe and proximity badges, radio frequency tags and biometric readers.
Secure Central Control
Security authorisations are created centrally for each individual within the system. These records can be amended or invalidated at any time to ensure flexibility of operation and control. Lost or stolen cards can be disabled promptly for assured control. In the event of an emergency evacuation, the doors can be configured to spring open.
Access Control Equipment
Access is controlled via Area and Door Controllers as detailed in the diagram. It is compatible with Timeclocks and time booking terminals to allow the capture of attendance information as well as controlling site access. Equipment can either be independently cabled or installed on the LAN.
Minimising Duplicate Data
Crown Access Control has been designed to minimise configuration and setup. As Access Control integrates fully with Crown’s WFM Time and Attendance, each individual’s work patterns and access patterns can be set centrally from one configuration screen. This simplifies the processes involved in setting up new employees on the system and enables their details to be amended as required.
Roll Call and Site Evacuation
If the site needs to be evacuated in the event of an emergency or drill, the system will provide a roll call report detailing all people on the site including employees, visitors and contractors for each assembly point. Alternatively,the system can be configured to record all people exiting the site in an emergency so that any remaining on the site can be easily identified.
