Automatic Barrier & ANPR

Automatic Barrier & ANPR

The requirement…

Horizon platforms, Yorkshire's fastest growing access platform provider needed an access control solution for their new facility in West Yorkshire. They needed to maintain business efficiency for their staff whilst restricting access for visitors and trainees throughout their facility.

The solution…

 Smart Ideas worked closely with Horizon to design a solution that would meet their requirements.

This included:

  • Video intercoms at strategic entrances to the facility to allow verified access for visitors.
  • Proximity access-controlled doors to protect sensitive and hazardous areas from visitors and trainees.
  • Automatic barriers were fitted to the vehicle entrance with automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) to allow Horizon personnel entry to the goods yard without having to leave their vehicles.
  • Access control management computer to manage the system and report on personnel movements for audit trail.

The feedback…

“Throughout the time my organisation has worked with the team at Smart Ideas, we have found them to be knowledgeable, responsive and very professional. They installed a robust security system based upon comprehensive scoping of our requirements. The system was then installed on-time, on-budget, and has been serviced and maintained to a high-standard since. I would not hesitate to recommend this organisation.”
