Benefits Of An Access Control System

What is an Access Control System? 

Access control system is a security system that controls access to a building or area. It can be used in many ways, such as controlling the entrances and exits of buildings, restricting access to certain areas within buildings, and monitoring who enters and leaves the property. 

Access control systems are typically designed for use with;

  • physical objects (such as doors) or 
  • areas (such as rooms). 

The most common form of access control system is card-based systems which require users to have an identification card before they can enter the facility. Other forms include smart cards, biometric readers, proximity cards, etc.

What are some types of Access Control Systems?

There are many types of access control systems, but the most common ones are: 

Key System – this is a system that uses one or more keys to open doors. The key must be carried by the person who needs to enter. This type of system is very reliable and secure, but it can also be expensive to install and maintain. 

Card System – this type of system uses cards with magnetic strips on them that have information about the user’s identity encoded on them. Each card has a unique number which identifies its owner and allows him/her to gain entry into different areas within an organization or building where they work.

How does it work? 

Access Control Systems are designed to control access to a building or other facility. The system is usually installed at the main entrance of the building and controls who can enter the area. 

There may be several different types of systems, such as;

  • an electronic keypad
  • magnetic card reader
  • biometric scanner 
  • retina scan 

Access Control Systems vary in how they operate and what type of information they store about each person that enters the facility.

Benefits of access control system

  • The access control system is a security arrangement that controls who can enter and leave the building. 
  • The access control system also controls what people can do inside the building, such as where they are allowed to go and what they are allowed to take with them when they leave. 
  • Access control systems may be used in offices, factories, warehouses, hospitals, and schools. 
  • They may be operated by an individual or by a computer program that monitors all activity within the building.

Advantages of an Access Control System

  • An access control system is a security device that controls the entry of people and vehicles into an area. 
  • It can be used to restrict access or prevent unauthorized use of property, buildings, or other facilities. 
  • Access control systems are often combined with other types of security devices such as video surveillance, intrusion detection systems (IDS), and fire suppression systems.

Access control systems are used to restrict access to areas. Access control systems can be used in different applications such as: 

  1. To provide security for sensitive information and facilities; 
  2. To prevent unauthorized access by people who have no right to enter an area; 
  3. For the purpose of controlling access at different times (e.g., during working hours, weekends, holidays); 
  4. For the purpose of restricting access by people with certain types of cards or badges; 
  5. For the purpose of controlling entry into a building or facility that has been closed for business purposes.

Why do we need an Access Control system?

The access Control system is a security device that controls the entrance to an area. Access control systems are used in many different ways, but all of them have one thing in common: they keep people out of areas where they don’t belong. In other words, access control can be defined as “a method for controlling who enters and leaves a building or facility” (Wikipedia). 

There are two category of access control systems: 

  1. physical 
  2. logical 

Physical access control systems use locks and keys to secure entrances, while logical access control systems use passwords or biometrics to identify individuals at entry points.

The access control system is a security system that controls access to an area. It is used in the personal and social sectors. 

The access control system is divided into two systems: 

  1. in-line systems  
  2. out-of-line systems

In-line systems are installed at the entrance of a building or an area, whereas out-of-line systems are installed outside of buildings or areas. Both types have their own advantages and disadvantages, but they are used for different purposes.

AARMTech deals with complex biometric identification systems and sophisticated video surveillance, which is an electronic security measure that restricts access to a particular area or object. We provide an easy way of controlling who enters your premises or building at any given time. This can be done through different types of access control systems such as magnetic locks, card readers, biometric sensors, and other advanced technologies that help you keep your company safe from intruders.
