Access Control System Key Features:

What is an access control system and how do they work?

Access Control Systems typically include proximity card readers, and electronic locking devices which are installed on all restricted access areas.

The Access Control System is then programmed by an administrator to define the entrances, times and rules of entry for each valid user. This information is then distributed to the various door, elevator and control panels to enable access to be granted to the valid user on presentation of their credential holder to the proximity reader.

Credential holders are normally in the form of a swipe card, fob or remote although Biometric readers (facial, fingerprint or eye recognition) are also used to identify users access rights.
