Learning about the various access control systems that can be implemented into your building or workplace to allow authorized personnel to gain access can be an effective way to decide whether to install aaccess control pin pad, card reader or even biometric technology to the area where you are providing with a high level of security.
Here are four types of systems that can be chosen from:
Access Pin Pads
These pads are installed throughout the office and require the individual to enter a pin in order to gain access to the part of the building. Pins can be identical for all users, or separate to track the activity of the people that are entering the area of the building. Easy to install and one of the most cost effective methods of access security, there are digital and non digital versions.
Card readers can implement technology like photo identification through the card to create an added level of security to the card. These card readers are a popular choice for exit and entry points, but can also be programmed for specific access points throughout the building to increase the level of security.
Biometric systems are created with the use of fingerprints, hand prints, retinal scans or other identifying features of the person that is trying to access a specific area. They are some of the most expensive forms of the technology for access point entry but are also some of the most effective systems that can be used throughout a building.
Magnetic Locking Systems
Magnetic locking systems are designed for use outdoors and can help to create security through a large area where vehicles and other objects must pass through. They can be an effective way to maintain the sense of exterior security and are a cost effective option.
