What is Access Control?
Access control is quite literally about controlling access to your premises, or a specific area of your premises. Instead of the old lock and key method, access control secures your building electronically. With tokens and readers instead of locks and keys; you say who has access, when they have access and where exactly they can have access to.
- Complete control
- Flexible security
Standalone access control is usually one or two small units wired directly onto a door panel to control access to the door.
There is no need for a PC network and you don't have to secure every single door within your building, only those you wish to. User tokens can be added to the system in seconds by presenting an enrolment card to the door. Administration is straightforward and can be done in a matter of minutes.
Biometric readers are devices that scan your fingerprint to allow entry to your building, and are just one type of reader available along with card and for readers.
