Highly impressed with this company. Had a Brother printer issue that was a result of a June 2020 Windows Update. It just quit printing from my laptop. I contacted Simmons Computer Solutions through their website and was contacted immediately. I was asked to call them and I did. I spoke with Chris Simmons and he was very polite and courteous. Shortly thereafter, a technician called me and I gave him remote access. He was aware of the Windows Update issue and proceeded to work his magic in fixing the printing problem. He too was very polite and answered questions I had. I would highly recommend using this company and I will make them my go-to people.

We switched our firm's IT services to Simmons after having issues with our previous IT company. We were nervous about the transition, but Simmons made the switch seamless and has performed much better than our previous company. They are very responsive and always take care of any problems right away. Tyler is great to work with! I highly recommend!

How much does an access control system cost?

Costs vary depending on the size and complexity of your system and desired features. Basic single-door systems cost less than multi-door systems with advanced features.

It’s best to talk with one of our digital security experts to determine your exact needs. Their expertise and suggestions will help give you an accurate estimate of your system’s cost.

How can I choose the right access control system for my building?

Choosing the right digital security system depends on several factors. Consider these when deciding on your system:

  • Number of doors and users: Ensure the system can fully cover your building.
  • Security level required: Choose a system that meets your security needs.
  • Budget: Determine your budget and find an affordable system.
  • Desired features: Consider features like mobile verification, ability to work with other systems, and whether or not you’ll need to expand later on.

Speaking with a security professional can help you understand your needs and choose the best access control system for your building.
