Sigur can control any types of doors and enables connection of all the necessary equipment such as locks, readers and all types of sensors.

Door types

Sigur can control common door types such as single-leaf doors and a variety of non-standard door types such as automated sliding doors, swing doors, two-leaf doors or traffic doors.

In fact, the system takes into account the specific features of operation of each of these door types (e.g., traffic doors will be locked only when they are completely still).

Door sensors

Various sensors connected to Sigur controllers will inform the system about the door status and enable monitoring of proper operation of the equipment installed.

Magnetic contact (door opening sensor)

This sensor will:

  • detect break-in attempts, including any manipulations with the magnet in an electromagnetic lock
  • detect attempts to hold back the door if it has been propped
  • detect unfinished entries or exits when a card has been tapped but no physical entry or exit have followed
  • hold open a door with an electromechanical lock in case of an emergency if the door was shut

Hall effect sensor

This sensor can:

  • detect any faults with the lock when the power supply is missing
  • detect incorrect lock installation or wiring problems
  • detect lock obstruction, i.e. when an object has been placed between the lock and the door so that it prevents the door from locking

You can also configure certain system responses to certain events, such as ringing the alarm if a break-in has been detected.


Sigur controllers can control most of the existing types of locks, including magnetic locks, electromechanical locks, motor-driven locks, solenoid locks with separate control inputs.

The system takes into account the specific features of each of these types of locks to enable correct registration of different door opening and closing events.

Additionally, you can use integrated third-party equipment, such as wireless electronic cylinders by SALTO, Assa Abloy or Simons Voss as well as other OSS-compatible equipment.


Sigur is compatible with any readers with standard Wiegand interface with various packet length or Dallas Touch Memory. Different connection diagrams can be used to connect readers to Sigur controllers:

  • a reader for entry and a reader for exit to control access in both directions and accurately record time and attendance
  • a reader for entry and a button for exit. This option is considered more comfortable for users and is less expensive, however it cannot be used for time and attendance tracking
  • push buttons and sensor buttons as well as RFID key fobs can be used

Additional equipment

Sigur controllers can also be connected to the majority of commonly used types of intercoms, emergency unlock buttons, panic bars, etc.

Access rules

Sigur controllers have an internal memory, which means that most of the operations can be executed locally, independently and regardless of the ACS server availability. The user can set a number of access rules, including:

  • request permit of security guard
  • two persons rule or Only if accompanied
  • multifactor identification (including various biometrics such as facial recognition), etc.
