security and access control

A-Z of access control: physical security, video surveillance, time and attendance recording, needs planning

CISA, with its know-how and decades of experience in mechanical security, has teamed up with Interflex, another company in the Allegion group specialised in advanced electronic access control systems, sharing its skills and expertise. Together we offer solutions and consulting for all our clients’ design, installation and maintenance needs.


Access control for small and medium-sized businesses

MobileKey: the answer for small and medium-sized businesses

Imagine opening and closing your door without your keys using a transponder, smartphone or keypad for greater security and simplicity. Now you can. With MobileKey no wiring or drilling is needed. Configure your doors with the help of the free app and your new locking system is ready to go.



The main function of an access control system is to grant discretionary access to a building or a single office or area only to those who are entitled to be there.

For years, a traditional deadbolt lock and a good key were the only way to control access. Nowadays, however, our needs have changed and the focus is on smarter solutions. We want to be able to control everyone who goes through a door or turnstile, as well as integrate anti-intrusion devices, even automating entire facilities and controlling workflows.

Keys are becoming a thing of the past, replaced by electronic access control systems which are controlled by a local network or in the cloud. These systems are a quick and inexpensive way of granting access to people who have authorisation, while denying it to those who don’t.
