Key objective

Future-proof Centralised Access Control

British American Tobacco wanted to centralise their security solutions, with an open platform which integrates into their existing and future systems and requirements.


The solution

  • Centralised access control with main operations centre in Southampton
  • Multiple security levels available depending on user roles
  • Locker management and cabinet access integration managed from one platform
  • Integration with visitor management to manage visitors and contractors
  • Future requirements with wireless locks
