Access Control Systems
Protection at Your Fingertips
In its most basic form, a standard door handle with a lock is considered access control. This arrangement controls or limits access to a particular area to only those persons with a key. However, today's electronic access control systems provide a higher level of control, allowing you to manage everything from one to an infinite amount of doors.
Electronic access enables you to control "The 3 W's":
Who is given access
When someone is given access
Where someone is allowed to access
An individual granted certain access permissions may only be able to enter certain doors between certain hours while others may be denied access entirely or granted full access. In addition to the pure control features most electronic access systems offer software integration that will track and log the events of individuals entering the specified areas and allow customized reporting for management controls.
