Why does your care business need effective security and access control?

Safety and security of residents is a prime consideration when selecting a care environment for elderly relatives or adults with special needs. Care and Residential Home security needs to be flexible; it needs to suit the needs of clinical staff and be practical for residents with differing physical or mental capacity. According to Care Home Environment, systems that use mechanical keys often do not meet all the access needs that a modern care home may have.

It’s never been more important to know exactly who is on your site, and when.

Biometric Access Control

  • Secure Premises with Biometrics

    Almas’s sleek Facial recognition or Fingerprint Access Control systems give care and residential homes a flexible, contactless and affordable management tool that can help you control which agency staff can access certain parts of the site, and when.

    Move beyond keys, fobs and cards that can be lost or stolen and improve your security today.

  • Comply with Safeguarding

    Almas’ biometric access control and Optima software’s flexibility means that Liberty Protection Safeguards can be addressed for each individual resident.

    Anti-barricade features are built in due to the ability to remotely open any door via your mobile or the software if required. Alerts can be set if doors are wedged open, combined with CCTV snapshots to check if a resident absconds.

  • Integrate with Fire Alarm Systems

    You need to be able to evacuate residents and staff quickly and effectively in the event of a fire or emergency.
    Integrate biometric readers to the fire alarm system and they will automatically dis-engage upon activation of the alarm.

Safety Monitoring: Protect Staff and Residents

  • Protect Staff and Residents

    Residents are vulnerable and therefore safeguarding and safety are paramount in their care environment.

    Safety monitoring can help staff self-regulate their actions when dealing with patients.

  • Improve Health and Safety

    Accidents in care homes are inevitable: some are preventable, others are not.

    False claims are growing and threatening care businesses both financially and reputationally. CCTV footage provides evidence of unpreventable accidents.

  • React Swiftly with Fall Detection Cameras

    Prevent serious injuries by detecting whether or not care home residents have suffered from a fall.

    Ensure that staff are able to quickly provide support to patients that require help getting back up.

  • Supporting Care Campaign for the Vulnerable

    Almas Industries are proud to support Care Campaign for the Vulnerable; promoting responsible CCTV to safeguard residents within a care environment.

    CCTV footage provides valuable training opportunities for future improved care.

Infection Control

  • Measure Temperature

    If you want an additional layer of protection for your staff and residents, the optional temperature detection and mask detection features can be activated in the facial access control system.

    Even beyond Covid-19, temperature detection is a good early warning system; stop potentially feverish individuals from entering the care home and spreading infection among residents.

  • Detect Facial Masks

    Ensure that all visitors and regular delivery staff are wearing masks appropriately when entering and leaving your premises to help stop the spread of Covid.

    Our solutions allow you to enforce mask wearing and deny access to non-mask wearers without having to tie up an additional member of staff.

  • Check Vaccinations

    Protect vulnerable residents by checking whether key agency staff have been vaccinated before entering your site. Ensure access is only permitted to vaccinate staff by using Optima Access Control and biometric readers

Protect your business

Staff Time and Attendance

  • Save Management Hours

    How much time do you spend collating and calculating key staff and agency workers hours at the end of each month?

    How do you check whether their hours are correct?

    Familiarity between teams and junior management can lead to lateness going unreported, meaning you are over-paying.

  • Check Staff On-Site

    Many care establishments use agency staff; in a 24hr operation management cannot physically check attendance on every shift.

    Biometric time and attendance means that records cannot be falsified, allowing you to know exactly who is on site at any time of the day.


  • Reduce costs

    Simple time and attendance reporting gives you the evidence you need to make sure that agency bills are accurate.

    Reporting allows you to crack down on time theft and drive down unnecessary operational costs.

    Biometric security software allows permissions to be set at an individual level; determine access to certain rooms, at certain times, for certain people. Be alerted if doors are forced or propped open. Truly tailored access for individuals.

    It is highly recommended that you conduct a privacy impact assessment before the installation of a new CCTV system.

    A clear sign that displays the details of the organisation operating the system, the reason for the CCTV and its contact details. The care home must ensure that it is an appropriate size for the location and are visible to everyone that may be able to view it. Additionally, the sign should be large enough that it can act as a deterrent.

    Any CCTV system should be implemented when privacy concerns have been carefully considered and a privacy impact assessment has been completed. CCTV in a resident’s room is very invasive, and would not be recommended except under exceptional conditions. CCTV on exits and in communal areas and grounds can enhance safety and security for residents, staff and visitors.  For more advice on this subject, please contact us.
