Businesses are now looking at new, modern, and safe ways to provide access to and from their premises. Based on the current levels of demand, firms are clearly looking at the business security systems, and door entry is an area of focus.

The Best Door Entry Systems for 2021
Over the years, we’ve worked with a huge range of manufacturers and product suppliers.
We feel the best commercial door entry systems available to a business are:
- Telguard – GSM Intercoms
- Paxton – Net 2 and Net 10
- Hikvision – Video Intercom
Let’s run through these now.
Telgaurd GSM Intercoms
The demand for intercom systems has skyrocketed over the last 6 months.
As always in this industry, we’ve been presented with a few interesting installation challenges around cabling, connectivity, and more.
For example, businesses looking to provide remote access to a site, where connectivity is a budgetary and practical challenge, requires us to get our thinking caps on.
Furthermore, a site where cabling is an issue requires an alternative solution.
Telguards GSM intercom systems provide the perfect solution.
“The Telguard GSM system includes a standard SIM card fitted within the intercom unit. When a relevant property number is pressed, the system makes a call to either a landline or mobile phone number. The call is answered as normal, and the visitor can be granted access by pressing a command on the telephone keypad.
The SIM card within the unit eradicates the need for extensive cabling, and therefore makes sites in remote locations more accessible.”
Below is a visual from the Telgaurd website and, if you’re keen to learn more about Telgaurd’s GSM intercom you can visit the product page on their website.

Hikvision Video Intercom
Video intercom provides businesses with a safe effective means to restrict and grant access to and from its premises. We’ve worked alongside Hikvision for years. In fact, one of our co-directors used to work for them at the start of his career.
When it comes to video intercom, Hikvision’s two-way system is a perfect fit for a range of businesses. In fact, as an example, we have seen a massive increase in doctor’s surgeries looking to use these systems to discuss health issues with patients securely, during the current pandemic.
Businesses can use video intercom systems as an alternative to a reception team. Stations can be positioned around the office, and when a visitor arrives, a member of staff can easily let them in with a push of a button.
