What is an Access Control System?
Definition of Access Control:
Access Control refers to a key-less house or building integrated entry system of electronic door locks and
hardware that unlock
doors based on the presence of a valid access swipe card, or entry of a valid PIN number on a door keypad.
Why do I want Access Control?
Access Control empowers you to control who has access to your building and property.
The problems of using ordinary mechanical keys are:
- Keys can be lost or stolen
- You are forced to change your locks if a key goes missing
- You are forced to replace keys if a key goes missing
- Keys can be copied and freely distributed
- Doors tend to be left unlocked during the day when people are most likely to access the building
The benefits of using a door keypad for access control:
- Choice of issuing one PIN for the whole building or multiple PIN numbers for each person granted
- No need to spend money on replacing lock if a PIN is compromised. Simply change the PIN needed to access
- No costs involved in issuing new PIN numbers
- If a PIN is stolen, simply block access to that PIN number
- Door locks automatically when door is closed
The benefits of using card access control:
- No PIN to share with others – actual card is needed for access
- Quicker than typing in a PIN – just swipe or touch card for access. Perfect if there is going to be a
people accessing the building
- Track who is accessing what and when via their Access Card
- Give different levels of access to different parts of building rather than issuing multiple keys or
- If card is lost – block access to that card and simply issue a new one (you can charge a card
users if you like)
- No need to replace electronic lock if card is lost or stolen. Just block the card
- Door locks automatically when door is closed
Which Access Control System is right for me?
There are two types of access control systems that we install:
- Card access system
- Electronic door lock with keypad access control
The card access system: is perfect if you wish to manage entry to a medium to large number of doors with many
can use this system to allow a group of users to enter certain rooms, while barring access to other rooms.
Examples of card access system use include:
- Entry into a corporate building and offices
- Access to a gym with the access cards integrated with photographic gym membership cards
- Control access to a membership based club or community centre, where general users can access member
rooms but are
barred from accessing staff rooms
- Managing access in a college or university – protecting rooms with computers and other expensive
The door keypad access system: tends to be a cheaper alternative to our card access systems. It is more suitable
smaller buildings, with a smaller number of users needing access to a facility. The keypad access system is
you if you’re on a more restricted budget.
Examples of a keypad access system in use include:
- Controlling access to a changing/locker room
- Controlling access to a mess room or staff room
- Managing access to a bike shed
- Managing access to a lab or computer room/building
