Access control systems for the police, fire service and emergency services

Emergency services such as the fire service, police and others are facing great challenges these days. Problems can arise quickly if keys are lost, especially within larger emergency service organisations. Due to the increased security requirements on the one hand and a frequently decentralised structure on the other, there is a need to be able to act swiftly to ensure security is re-established in the event of a key loss.

If we take emergency ambulance services as an example, we have a 24-hour service seven days a week. Everyone providing the service needs to have quick access to all necessary areas, yet at the same time expensive, life-saving equipment needs to be protected effectively against unauthorised access at all times.

The all-inclusive solution: System 3060



  • Complex events that require a quick overview
  • Special protection for restricted areas
  • Many different areas with widely different access authorisations

Whether we are talking about the police, fire service or accident rescue services, they always involve intense operational activity and things often need to be decided and clarified at a moment's notice. A flexible system is required that can be easily adapted within a short period of time.

Moreover, access rights are not limited to doors, especially for emergency services. Authorisations also need to be assigned for other items. These may be special cabinets or also authorised access to start up vehicles.

The solution:

System 3060 can meet all the requirements that emergency services impose on a modern locking system:

  • Access control with simultaneously automated documentation
  • Improvement in hygiene standards thanks to contactless technology
  • Quality assurance through automatic event logging and automatic processes
  • Active security through mapping of restricted access areas (e.g. drug storage and IT systems)
  • Passive security by deterring theft and abuse
  • Low costs thanks to sustainability, durability, minimal power consumption, upward and downward compatibility, connection to third-party systems and more

Security in emergency services


Access roads/barriers/underground car parks

  • Granting of access rights for incoming vehicles and underground garages at a simple press of the mouse
  • Opening of barriers: Access for employees, external employees and visitors
  • Combination with existing ticket systems possible

No more worry about lost keys


  • The facility manager creates a replacement transponder
  • The employee picks it up
  • The lost transponder is automatically disabled when the replacement transponder is used in the locking system for the first time

Main and side entrances


  • Programmable system over the network or online from anywhere in the world
  • Automatic opening of main entrances for everyone
  • Individual access rights thanks to authorised identification medium, even outside opening hours

Safety cabinets​​​​​​

  • Protection of materials and sensitive data
  • Digital espagnolette locks and furniture locks for installation in hinged door cabinets, office cabinets, drawers 
  • All locking transactions are logged

Door with door monitoring


  • Cable-free online door monitoring for sensitive rooms
  • Records, logs and reports all door statuses using sensor control to detect whether doors are open, closed, locked or open too long
  • Alerts security personnel to critical events

Protection against burglary

  • Restricted access areas always securely locked
  • No more high costs and security issues if a key is lost or stolen
  • Lost identification media can be deactivated and reprogrammed within a few seconds

Facility Management​​​​​​


  • Central set-up and management of all System 3060 components with Locking System Management software
  • Even if there are a number of buildings and locations
  • Support for facility management thanks to comprehensive reporting and time-controlled authorisations

Entrance hall with protective function


  • Central activation of protective functions (e.g. emergency release, gunman attack function)
  • Release of doors in the event of a fire alarm/emergency call
  • Deactivation of all locking devices

Employees and staff

  • Time-dependent access rights possible
  • Person groups with different authorisations
  • One transponder instead of numerous keys

Networking: online or virtual


  • Online network:
    Changes to access rights and functions performed in real time from anywhere in the world
  • Virtual network:
    Programming and modifying access rights via gateways to identification media on site
