Access Control Systems use electronic and/or biometric credentials to restrict physical access to buildings, rooms, gates, elevators, cabinets, as well as equipment operation such as computers and copiers. Access systems offer additional security features such as door position monitoring to detect and report propped open doors and doors forced open. Event logging is a feature which maintains a timestamped record of all events. Events such as Access granted or Access Denied can be used by property owners and security officials to time track access to areas and systems by specific user.
Access control systems offer a wide range of features and scalability to accommodate the needs of the very basic user to the most complex security professional. A basic user may want to simply replace cut keys with more manageable access cards which provide nearly instant control of who and when an individual has the ability to enter a building. Facilities requiring more complex control may integrate the access control system with their intrusion, video surveillance and visitor management systems to create safe and secure site for their employees and guests.
