Access Control Systems & Card Access:
How can people have freedom to come and go without compromising the security of an area? Access Control answers this question by letting you determine who can enter and exit an area, and what level of access they will have inside.
Advanced access control systems like keypad alarm systems and Fingerprint readers bring many advantages over traditional locks and keys. These newer systems allow a manager to lock and unlock doors automatically, and to track and document which individuals went where, and when. That information is highly valuable if the need arises to review and investigate a security incident.
Access control systems (ACS) can be integrated into a comprehensive security plan that involves aspects of physical layout like heating and cooling systems, electronic locks, closed circuit television, and security surveillance.
While Access Control provides peace of mind to business owners, due to their sophistication, these systems are more often used in government installations and high-profile commercial targets such as banks, hotels and some apartment complexes. Laboratory and testing areas that store sensitive items like radioactive materials and other top-secret devices use access control systems, including remote access control and thumb print readers. Businesses that work with sensitive government contracts also generally are required to have these systems in place.
