Why Do I Need an Access Control System?
Access control systems offer a secure, convenient, flexible and cost-effective way of controlling any commercial security system, designed for anyone that has access to your building and when that access is allowed.
All businesses have to protect assets and employees whilst allowing people to move freely in the areas that they need. It is common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.
Installing access control systems means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through the controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost or stolen.
Which Access Control System is Right for Me?
Networked Access Control Systems
Networked access control systems offer centralised control of your building from a P.C. Commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors instantly, such as opening doors, barring tokens and building lockdown. Other benefits of this type of system are flexible control, allowing different permissions for individuals or group users.
These access control systems are generally found in schools, offices and healthcare facilities.
Standalone – Offline Access Control Systems
Offline access control systems may be used to control access on one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using a PIN or electronic token and there is no need for a P.C. or network. Unlike a networked system, a standalone system is programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door in the system.
Typical applications of these access control systems are small business premises, storage units and sites with limited users.
Web-based Access Control Systems
Access control systems with a web-based user interface means that a system administrator can access the software remotely, from anywhere with an internet connection. This system supports all the functionality of a networked system, with no network required. A benefit of this system is combined surveillance and video management from one unified platform.
Typical applications of web-based access control systems are schools, offices and healthcare facilities.
