Access Control Systems

Access control systems manage who can go where and when in gated communities, commercial buildings and other similar settings. Whether it is accessed by wireless intercom, loop detectors, telephone entry systems, card key readers, or radio remote controls, we have the right access control system for you.  Sentex® Telephone Entry Systems are designed with vandal resistant housings, easy to reach buttons, clear voice communications, tone dialing, and long distance telephone dialing. And for those who want enhanced flexibility – a brightly-lit LCD display visible day and night and in direct sunlight.

The EL2000 is the most versatile telephone entry system for commercial applications, gated homes and communities. The EL2000 will change your expectations of what a telephone entry system should look like. The EL2000 is designed to complement virtually any gated community and is flexible enough to be used in apartment buildings, condo complexes, office parks and commercial sites.

The EL2000 features a 5-inch backlit LCD screen; the unit clearly displays up to 4 lines with 20 characters per line, making it a great choice for multi-tenant installations. The EL2000 is capable of accepting up to 2,000 totally flexible codes. These codes can be programmed as directory codes or access codes, making the EL2000 ideal for virtually any installation. Unlike other systems, the EL2000 may be purchased as a base unit or can be ordered with optional plug-in modules. This allows you to choose only the plug-in modules you need, depending on the specifics of the job – enabling you to offer custom solutions right off the shelf without special orders.

Optional modules let you expand the telephone entry system to fit your specific needs. The Wiegand output module lets you add card readers and/or remote keypads. Our RF module provides convenient access through gates or doors with PassportTM transmitters. Plus, the system is now designed to automatically detect the addition and location of each new plug-in module, making installation and programming faster and easier than ever before.

DoorKing DKS 1812

The model 1812 is a unique telephone intercom system that allows homeowners to use their telephone as an intercom to speak to a guest at a front door or gate without the necessity to pay for an additional telephone line at their home. With its “intercom mode” programming feature, the 1812 can also be connected to a PBX or KSU type system, making it ideal for small businesses to control access through a single door or gate.

Visitors are easily identified by voice communication and can be granted or denied access directly from a touch-tone telephone. The 1812 is available in both surface and flush mount designs and includes the DKS auto-programming software for Windows, allowing homeowners to program the system right from their home computer.
