Access Control & Surveillance Solutions Pricing

When budgeting for an access control project you need to consider how you will use technology to allow both visitors and employees to access your space. You should think about how people will enter, where they can move through your space and of course if you desire to keep a record of them leaving. All of these factors will impact the total cost of the project. 

Based on our experience, we typically see prices ranging from $1800 per entry to $3000 per entry.

credentials icon


Companies must decide what credential they will give to the users to allow access. A credential that is a simple key fob would cost less than a credential that has a photo of the user and is also used as the employee’s badge.

smarts at the door icon


Explore cutting edge options like PoE or Bluetooth locks to save on cabling costs and cut down on the hardware needed in a traditional access control systems.

integration to access control icon


Stand alone systems that do not connect to other sites require less programming and set-up than a system that controls multiple sites.

life safety icon


Will the door lock mechanism be required to integrate with the facility fire alarm panel? A system that must integrate with the fire alarm will cost more than one that does not. It will also require multiple trades to install.

entry points icon


Remember, there are many entry points on a corporate campus and interior office space. Beyond standard interior and exterior doors, you should also consider elevators, parking gates and turnstiles. Some of our clients also use access control for the IT rooms or private offices.

specific system utilized icon


Historically, analog access control systems have dominated the market. Analog Access Control Systems require more cabling and infrastructure to support them. Recently, IP based systems have emerged and through ethernet cabling and “edge” door controllers have started to lower costs.

locking mechanisms icon


What type of lock will be used? The lock will vary from door to door. A typical electric strike on an office door may only cost a few hundred dollars while a typical electric vertical rod system in a storefront glass door may cost several thousands of dollars.

Common Cost Factors for Most Projects

geographic location icon


Where is the project located? Some parts of the country are more expensive than others. Some rural areas may require travel due to availability of the field resources which could increase cost.

size and type of environment icon


Type of environment will impact price. Class A Office, Distribution Center, Manufacturing, Retail, Indoor vs. Outdoor could all impact overall cost.

labor requirements icon


Projects being installed with a Union Labor requirement will be more expensive than projects without the requirement. Some projects require a prevailing wage to be paid to a technician which can also increase costs.

permitting icon


Permitting varies from state to state and city to city. One city may not require anything more than an application form to receive a permit, while others may want full engineered drawings that go through a plan review process. The full set of engineered drawings carries a substantial price tag that elevates the overall system cost. Another consideration is the time required if the review process is a requirement.

remodel vs new construction icon


New construction will typically be less expensive than renovation.

local codes and standards icon


Local codes can drive cost as they vary in requirement. For instance, in some locations across the U.S. all overhead cable must run in conduit while others can be supported with J-Hooks in the ceiling.

local codes and standards icon


Pathways can contribute greatly to overall system costs. Costs of core holes sizing and cutting slab for conduits needs to be considered in your budgeting process.

economies of scale icon


What type of structure is being built? A system in a manufacturing plant is developed completely different than a high rise office building. An apartment complex can reuse the same templates for each building; this saves design time and costs.

installation hours icon


Normal working hours will be less expensive than after hours or weekends.
