The traditional method of locks and keys allow you to secure your premises, but when keys are lost or stolen, you face the annoyance and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys. Keys can also be copied, creating even more of a security risk. Furthermore, it is common that buildings which are secured by lock and key have doors left unlocked all day which allows for the possibility of opportunist theft and even physical endangerment to staff Access Control.
Electronic access control systems provide the most efficient and convenient way of securing your building and property. You will never have to change a lock again - tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or just not returned by someone who leaves your company. All doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed.
Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock only during a designated time frame. Individual users’ access rights can also be configured, so that all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there.
Physical access control is a matter of whom, where, and when. An access control system determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit.
Standalone keypads allow access when a pre-determined code is typed into it. When an authorised correct code is entered the door releases.
Magnetic swipe readers, when the card is swiped through the reader the coded ID number is read from the magnetic strip on the card. If it is an authorised code number the door is released.
Proximity readers work by inducing a chip in the ID card or tag to transmit its coded number and if it is an authorised code number the door is released.
These provide high speed secure access to your offices and or restricted area. No need for cards or codes as they utilise, finger print, retinal scan or face recognition.
Door Controllers process the information transmitted to them, log all the events, and store Groups, the name, the access times and all the other parameters that are necessary to meet your requirements.
