About Continental Access Control

Official Website:

Continental Access has been a pioneer in the Access Control Industry since 1961. Since that time Continental has cultivated many high-profile and Fortune 500 clients including, Coca-Cola, The Federal reserve Bank, Port Authority of NY, NJ, Columbia University, U of Penn Medical Center, Boeing and Caterpillar, just to name a few.

Quite literally the inventor of CardAccess, Continental Access has evolved into the developer of tomorrow's business and facility management solutions today, from components to photo ID software check-in to complete turn-key systems; all utilizing the CA3000 software management system.

Our CardAccess® CA3000 system is a full security-management suite that provides the cutting-edge, technological backbone needed to be able to support, manage & protect today’s schools, hospitals and corporations.

The CA3000 offers access control, ID credential issuance and management, alarm monitoring (both through the Continental controllers as well as through the Napco alarm panel interface), digital video surveillance and management (supports both analog and IP cameras), integration of biometric technologies, intrusion detection, visitor management, and smart card functionality (supporting both FIPS201 & TWIC). Continental also integrates with a wealth of third-party applications for added functionality. These individual applications are available from CA as standalone systems, or can be deployed in any combination to deliver a single integrated solution that will satisfy each customer’s particular needs.

Continental has once again separated itself from other access control manufacturers with the creation of several interfaces only available through Continental. These items are:

Due to the wealth of available interfaces and functionality in the CA3000 we provide several factory-certified training classes and 24-hr technical support, attesting to our continuing commitment to quality service and support.

As part of the Napco Security Group (NASDAQ- NSSC), we’re prepared to serve you better with strengthened manufacturing & customer support, enhanced product development and faster time-to-market.
