Access Control Systems
Access Control pertains to the system involving the locking and releasing of doors through authentication means rather than a traditional key. By utilising physical access control, you are able to control and restrict access to a physical space within a business or an organisation. Some advantages of Access Control include:
- ID cards – a serial number is embedded on a small chip in the card
- Key chain tags – also uses a small chip in the key tag
- Biometrics – a person’s fingerprint is linked to a serial number
Here at Symetrix, our access control price is competitive and well worth the investment. Below, we’ll explain how an access control system works as well as the different types of solutions available.
How does it work?
This serial number is then communicated to the main control panel which applies the protocols you set to decide whether or not to open a door. On-site and comprehensive software is available for ultimate ease of access, on-the-run changes and immediate control.
Whether you are a CEO of a corporation who needs to secure special areas of the building, or even a parent with teenagers who needs to know that the house is secure at all times and that the kids can get in and out without having to worry about keys, a keyless entry system can make sure you are informed and in control.
Biometric access control can be much more complicated, have multiple verification points, management software, scheduling and multiple access points!
When it comes to biometric access control, unless you have the budget for a multiple verification point, high security system, we would instead recommend a card/ tag access control system, which is actually a more beneficial and cost effective security solution.
Keypad access control will allow multiple people to access one area, although this is not as secure as other methods due to the fact that the combination may be shared with other people.
Card and tag access
Each person who requires access to a building will have a different Access Card or Tag which has its own unique ID number. This ID number identifies them to the system and ensures that you can trace their movements if needed.
Biometric access control can be much more complicated but its features include multiple verification points, management software, scheduling and multiple access points. By integrating cloud access control for your home or business, you can remotely manage processes such as adding or revoking user access and maintain visibility and control.
Why use access control?
The price of your Access Control system will ultimately rest on 4 factors:
- The number of doors and regions to be secured,
- The quantity of users who require access,
- The particular method used (card, tag or biometric),
- Your building structure, which will influence design dynamics, and
- The ease or difficulty of cabling based on your building’s design.
