Access Control

Badge your card and the light goes green.
At face value, access control is pretty simple...

Most access control systems appear to do the same things, but the devil is in the detail.  ICT offers electronic access control with a twist. Our Protege systems offer all-in-one solutions that are simple to use, feature rich and effortless to integrate and extend.


A fundamental part of ICT’s corporate philosophy is focused on the ability to integrate. This approach allows our products to maximize investments already made and add value to existing technology. An impressive array of integrated third party systems shows our long term commitment to our customer’s solution requirements.

Open Standards

At ICT, we like to win on our own merits, and believe that if we aren’t performing, you should have the choice to go elsewhere. Wherever possible, you’ll see us supporting open, non-proprietary standards, protocols and hardware.

Development Tools

Our open protocols make extending your system effortless.  Whether you want to control your system from a third party application, import your data from an external source or create your own, fully customized solution, we have the tools to do it.

“We love the ease of this system and also the looks. So do our customers.”

Roger Barnes, Roger’s Security Systems Inc

A feature set like no other

We are pretty good at making the light go green, but our Protege systems are anything but one trick ponies.
