Access Control

Keeping you secure with the latest biometric systems

Phoenix Eye Access Control services

Phoenix Eye’s experience has been gained through the management of construction site security for many years. With margins continuing to tighten, competition for jobs increasing and clients demanding more for their money, contractors are looking to drive down their own costs by using a cost effective and reliable solution.

As a result, site security is evolving and Phoenix Eye is one firm offering contractors not only tighter control of site access but also better visibility of day to day running of projects. Its Eye Access system which is currently in use on a number of key sites records a worker’s biometric data- basically a person’s unique fingerprint minutiae – and identifies them with total accuracy as they pass in and out of site entrances. Phoenix Eye has designed its Eye Access units which use British manufactured turnstile equipment. To activate the turnstile a person must place their fingerprint onto a small unit on the turnstile and if their fingerprint matches the template captured during enrolment they are granted access.

Access Credentials

First and foremost, this affords the main contractor on the job total control over who enters the site and prevents the all-too-common problem of several people working on site under one name. “[When they enter site] we can guarantee a person is who they say they are,” says Phoenix Eye construction business manager Craig White. “Unlike generic systems, the decision is based on having the right credentials and on the policy of the site.” For example, during the enrolment processes you can set a worker’s fingerprint to auto expire for reasons such as their CSCS card will expire on a certain date. You can set the simple to use software to restrict access to personnel on certain shifts meaning they can only gain access through the turnstile within the parameters set by the software administrator.

The time and attendance reports can be compared against invoices, reducing inaccurate payments and wage disputes. Turnstiles are available in half height, full height, single bi-directional and double with other forms of access such as proximity, pin or multimodal units.

Using the latest Biometric fingerprint technology Phoenix can provide secure new or retro fit access control systems to meet any budget.
