Access control systems are electronic security solutions that allow you to manage the flow of people into, out of and around a building or buildings.
Basic access control systems are generally installed to protect a single door – for example, front or rear doors to small offices, offices without a reception desk, blocks of flats and schools. They consist of video entry systems, audio entry systems, or keypad and PIN devices.
Standalone access control systems consist of a small network of card readers controlled by local door controllers. They are generally used for one- or two-door installations in small offices, retail units, schools, etc.
Networked access control systems consist of a front-end PC connected to a network of door controllers and card readers. They are generally used for multiple doors or sites, as in the case of large offices, warehouses, industrial units, hospitals, and larger educational establishments.
Access control systems allow you to monitor where people go within a building, to control access by individuals, and to ensure that access is granted to the right individual to an appropriate area at the correct times.
