Welcome to Nexus Access Systems

Nexus access control systems are distributors for Miwa lock and Cardax access control systems. We are also direct importers and distributors of most access control proximity card / tag types in S.A. Because of our card related business we distribute ID card machines and their consumables too.

On our installation side we not only install the Miwa electronic locks, but also CCTV, fire detection systems & general access control systems (Impro / HID)

In the Free State we are busy with the Brandwag Hotel. In the Cape we have completed the Caledon Hotel, Catwalk, the Icon, Somerset Links, Ocean view, La Bella, Stellenbosch University, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, a number of backpack organizations and the North Wharf Hotel operated by Protea Hotels where we installed additional elevator controllers & boomed parking for guests and monthly users.

Miwa are compatible to all major Property Management Systems. If a system has not interfaced all it takes is for Miwa to issue the protocols to the Property Management Company to convert it. Miwa also have offices in 19 European Countries and 9 offices in the United States.

Nine years ago Nexus installed Miwa locks into the Caledon Hotel & Casino and to date we have replaced only 1 door reader. This is why we are able to offer our clients a better guarantee than our competitors.
