A Simple Access Control System with features that offers convenience, flexibility, ease of operation, must be cost effective, scalable and Secured.

Landing Access Control
To restricts entry to elevator at floor landing.
Landing Access Control allows Authorized card holder to call the elevator to the floor Landing by showing the authorized card and then pressing the floor landing button. This has a advantage of avoiding unauthorized calls from ground floor or other floors by unauthorized persons thus avoiding unnecessary up and down movement of elevator saving electricity. Once inside the elevator one can access any floor. To secure the entire facility, all floor landing must be secured with Landing Access Control.
A combination of COP Access control and Landing Access Control at all floor landings is the best security option for elevators.
Being the first company to design, develop and manufacture elevator Access Control in India since 2002, we have customized the elevator access control to suit our customer’s security and convenience needs.
In a low small and low rise facility, access is permitted to all authorized persons to all the floors. However, in high rise building for security reasons access is granted to authorized person only to his/ her floor. This is called “Self Floor”
Some owners in a high rise facility need to access more than one floor. These authorized card holders are given “Multi Floor” access rights.
Time Control Access Control
Certain facilities prefer to restrict access to elevators only during night and allow free access to elevator as the facility allows entry to maids, milk man, fruit & vegetable vendors etc.
This is very interesting feature of elevator access control. DDS is the only company that offers number of solutions to suit the needs of the facility members.
In large facilities with multiple buildings, Security guard at entrance of facility issues a time bound Guest Access Card to specific floor after verifying with host. Guest hands over the Guest Access Card to the host who returns it to security. Alternatively, security guard registers the floor call for the guest.
To cater to functions/ parties when more number of guests are expected, a feature is provided to over ride the Access Control for a specific floor or all floor. All guests and enter the elevator on the ground floor and register call to floor just by pressing the floor call button on the COP
FIRE SERVICE OVER RIDE
As a standard feature, DDS elevator access control is connected to any Fire Alarm Panel. In case of fire in the building/ zone, the access control is over ridden.
