Access control

Agile access control – more than just open

Access control from Axis is not only open, it’s agile. When planning your access control solution, you get flexibility for both today’s needs and tomorrow’s. Like other Axis solutions, our access control products don’t tie you to proprietary or pre-approved hardware and software. So you can mix, match and integrate best-of-breed options. Whether you have a smaller installation or a large number of doors and complex access rules, you can be truly proactive – and find the optimal way to meet your access control challenges.

Save with edge-based simplicity

Unlike traditional access control, access control from Axis is edge-based and streamlined. Connected to and powered by your existing network using IP PoE, our solutions avoid complicated and time-consuming wiring to a central server. Not only does this save you material and labor costs, it also simplifies changes down the road.

Central decision - making server (to the left). Intelligence at the door (to the right).

Not tied down by cables

Complicated wiring to a central decision-making server can make traditional systems cumberstone and costly. An agile system is edge-based and lean, with the intelligence at the door.

Start small or start big – and scale as needed

Access control from Axis can be optimized for any need, small as well as large. This sets it apart from traditional solutions, which are often dimensioned for systems with many doors. Our AXIS Entry Manager software is specifically for small to medium-sized needs, making it fast and easy to set up the perfect solution. For systems involving a large number of doors or highly complex access rules, software from Axis partners enables cutting-edge enterprise solutions. Either way, you can expand your system economically and step-by-step, growing quickly and easily as needed.

Take access control beyond the door

Our access control solutions are truly agile, which means they can easily take you far past traditional door scenarios. You can achieve flexible, cost-effective and innovative security – including out-of-the-box integration with your existing security systems. Whether your installation is small or large, you have many possibilities for going beyond the door, such as cabinet locks, wireless locks to secure drawers and lockers, or I/O modules for integrating unique options.
