Access Control

BGI is proud to offer a selection of the most advanced systems for access control. Any of our hydraulically, electrically or pneumatically operated bollards, gates, barriers or spikes can be controlled by these access control methods most of which can in turn be integrated with ease into other enterprise systems.

From simple push button activation to advanced biometric control. BGI offers an access control system to meet every security level and budget.

Cellular Phone

This simple but reliable and effective system allows gates or barriers to be activated by using cellular phones.

In order to open the gate, the cellular phone number of the caller must be pre-registered in the system. Phone calls are free since the system does not answer the call and use air time, rather it uses the Caller ID of the calling phone which it checks against a predefined list.

A PC or phone based management console allows access to be defined on an hourly or daily basis and one-time visitors can be granted access by registering their phone details and expected arrival time/date in advance. The system can also be programmed using SMS text messages.

The system can store over 5000 phone numbers and is suitable for all types of installations including car parks, closed residential communities, private homes and commercial compounds.

Celllular phone activation uses the GSM phone system and phones must have Caller ID enabled in order to activate the gates.

License Plate Recognition (LPR)

License Plate Recognition (LPR) systems detect and read vehicle license plates for traffic enforcement, toll roads, border control, security, access control, parking systems, and many other applications.

BGI offers a sophisticated vision-based License Plate Recognition system that identifies number plates on stationary or slowly moving vehicles approaching a barrier or gate.

The combined camera/illumination unit compares the recognition result to an authorization list and opens the gate if the vehicle is authorized. Authorized vehicle numbers are stored on the unit's local database. Users can change the authorization list, as well as other parameters, using a special web server application.

The system in its typical configuration will recognize a license plate in less than 0.5 seconds and the detection range is 4.0 -to 7.0 meters with a standard lens. Multiple cameras can monitor a single lane for increased security and reliability.

With its ability to operate continuously during the day and night, including adverse weather conditions, BGI's LPR solution can be run as a standalone system or integrated into an enterprise IT environment for full control and tracking of vehicle movement.

For world class security, a biometric solution ensures that only approved people enter the facility. Our fingerprint identification system for indoor physical access control incorporates high-speed one-to-many matching, ensuring an unparalleled level of security and user-friendliness

  • Encryption at the sensor level
  • Innovative live sensing security features
  • Sensor unit includes a proximity card reader
  • Robust, suitable for diverse stand-alone, networked and integrated applications
  • Wireless and wired solutions

The reader is not sensitive to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight on the sensor and information is stored only on the Biometric Processing Engine, which is installed at a protected location, separately from the sensor. To prevent misuse and protect user privacy, encrypted biometric templates cannot be converted back into the original fingerprint image.

A user friendly management application can maintain and control up to 150 reader units from a single computer.
