What is an Access Control System
Access control system options provide authorized individuals safe and secure access in and out of various parts of your business while keeping unauthorized people out. Access control systems may also be used to control access to certain areas located within the interior of buildings. They can range from electronic keypads that secure a single door to large networked systems for multiple buildings. As technology has evolved, access control systems have become more sophisticated. Today, the term most often refers to a computer-based, electronic card/fob reader to permit access into a secured area. Access Systems also greatly simplify the management of your facility: no need to replace lost keys, hunt down old keys from terminated employees, or wonder who has access to which areas.
Organizations today face a myriad of security challenges at their facilities
Access control systems are mostly used for:
Providing a safe environment for employees and outside visitors. This can include a broad range of solutions for secure access doors, gates, parking facilities, networks, and secure areas of confidential company information.
Identify who is in your building. Access control systems allow you to know who is in your building or facility and allows for you to manage their level of access. The primary challenge for many organizations is to secure their facility from unwanted personnel while also allowing access to people who have a legitimate purpose in engaging with the organization.
Control access to highly secure areas. Access control systems are designed to protect your facilities that require a higher level of security, monitoring sensitive data or high-value assets such as a server room, personnel records room or other sensitive areas.
Manage commercial fleet fueling stations. Certain access control systems allow facilities to monitor and control their commercial fleet fuel access.
Door Access Control Features
Timing. You can set up specified times when doors should be locked and unlocked. This is particularly helpful for doors that open to the public at certain times of the day.
Tracking. All computerized access control systems provide a basic amount of usage tracking. This can be upgraded depending on the type of system you install.
Battery Backup. All systems should run on a battery backup system in the event of a power failure.
Badges. Most vendors will be able to supply a specialized printer so you can create new access cards as needed.
Voice Control. Certain types of access control systems provide voice communication capabilities, such as an intercom or a telephone entry system. A simple intercom allows visitors to talk to a central control booth. Telephone entry systems, common in apartment complexes, allow visitors to dial a specific unit to request entry and let residents unlock the door or open a gate using their phone.
