Ensure safe and secure access to controlled zones
See at a glance, exactly where your staff are. hfx Access Control uses card or fingerprint/biometric technology, using the latest smart devices.

We can provide weatherproof IP65 card and finger print readers, that are also available in EM and Mifare Proximity formats. Alternatively we can provide a card reader only. Both options have audible and visual read confirmation.

Light touch installation, meaning that it has minimum impact on existing infrastructure with significantly less cabling has it connects directly to the cloud using a wifi connection.

Details of who can get through the door is held on the device. hfx Access Control can tag people with skills and certificates, alert will be sent if someone tries to go through a door for which they are not authorised, or their skill/certificate as expired (for example, food hygiene for a kitchen).

Easy to use Access Control interface
The easy to use hfx Access Control interface provides almost real time detail of which members of staff or in which location. You can even see who has gone through which door, and if they are not authorised for a certain location, you will receive an alert.

With its desktop or mobile app, hfx Access Control keeps training for line managers to a minimum with its intuitive design.

No Network – No Problem with Built-in redundancy
Using hybrid Cloud technology, the hfx solution stores information on site and in the Cloud to provide the best of both worlds – built-in redundancy.

Even if the network fails, your doors will still operate because information is held on the devices locally. That means that security is maintained, and should the worst happen, for example a fire, you simply use the mobile app to access your data held safely on the Cloud, where you can instantly access a Muster List.

Full integration with other Workforce solutions
hfx Access Control fully integrates with hfx Flexitime, Vanquish T&A, and Everyone Cloud as well as all other mainstream HR, T&A and Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions.

Everyone Cloud is an integration portal where anyone, anywhere can use any device to clock in. This includes card, biometrics, phone, tablet, proximity cards/devices, apps etc. Can be used for timesheet purposes, and cloud/T&A.

Simple, online, up and running within days.

Engineers based across the UK for national coverage (Hertfordshire, Birmingham, Manchester, Scotland)

At Dartmoor National Park staff are using hfx’s proximity card to enter the office locations which has improved security of buildings for staff and property. Staff have found the new system easy to use and appreciate that the buildings are secure for deliveries and visitors. Staff who work remotely or from home are also able to log in and out remotely from their desktop.

Neil White, Head of Organisational Development at Dartmoor National Park stated: “The access control was initially greeted with trepidation by some, but it has been well received – it helps us manage deliveries and access. Employees like having a system that is efficient and reliable – just beeping as you walk past the entrance is much better.
