Access Control Systems

Design, Installation & Maintenance

Access control systems use methods like keycards, biometrics, and electronic locks to restrict entry to specific areas, enhancing security. Users present credentials like a card, fob, or biometric data, which are then verified by the system for access permission.

AST Technologies offers comprehensive services for designing, installing, and maintaining access control systems, ensuring the safety and security of your business. Our systems are adept at controlling both external and internal access, making them perfect for a wide range of applications, from corporate environments to various industry-specific needs.

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.

Credential Options

Users can gain access using swipe cards, fobs, remotes, or biometric readers (like facial, fingerprint, or eye recognition), depending on the chosen system. This flexibility allows for secure and efficient user identification and access control.
