Door Access Control Security Systems hand_palm_reader_access_control



Access Control locks and unlocks doors in response to an ID card, without any personal intervention. It provides the security you need while permitting authorized people to enter your premises with ease and allows you to check your visitors before granting entry. Access Control can also extend to your parking lot or other remote site. A log of all entries and exits is automatically created leaving an audit trail for security and review purposes. You can even get a log of the length of time doors remained open.

No more keys. Keys can be copied and passed on to unauthorized persons. An employee who is dismissed or who resigns may keep a copy of the key and enter the premises unlawfully. With Access Control, the entry devices cannot be duplicated by unauthorized personnel and any devices retained by staff who have left your firm can be easily invalidated. You can even give entry devices to temporary employees and preset the date and time when their validity is nullified.

Door Access Control : How it works

The access code is integrated into the ID Card. An employee simply holds the ID Card in front of the reader to obtain entry. It may even be read through a wallet. The time required by the system to identify the person is very short, so the action can be totally hidden from passersby. Entry may be restricted or denied by the administrator by defining times or dates when entry is prohibited. Permission may also be cancelled at any time by the system administrator by issuing the proper command to the controller.

Biometrics Door Access Control

biometric finger print reader access controlBiometrics constitute a more sophisticated type of Access Control. A body feature of your employee can replace the ID card. Fingerprints, handscans, iris patterns, facial features or spoken instructions can be almost instantly examined by scanners and compared to data in a database, to open a door or to assure that it remains locked. With Biometrics, your staff don't have to remember frequently revised PINS or passwords and don't need to carry an ID card, which might be lost. With Biometrics, authorized persons always have their permits on them. The equipment recognizes the person by the feature analyzed and stored in the database.

Biometrics are particularly suitable if your business has high traffic and if you want to minimize impediments to free movement. Biometric systems do their searches almost instantaneously. Approved customers, members or staff can simply breeze past the scanners without interference. The systems are virtually foolproof because the biometric features are unique to each individual and can’t be copied. Since with Biometric Systems you no longer have to administer PINs and passwords they also offer cost savings on administration and maintenance.
