Biometric Access System
Access Control pertains to the selective authorization of vetted individuals to access a secured area. We provide multiple access control options. Our biometric access control line of products can use fingerprints, facial recognition or palm readers. The regular line of products we offer uses key cards or keypad inputs.
Typically an access control system consists of 6 elements: An access control panel, an access controlled entry (door, gate, etc), a reader, an electric door lock, a door sensor and a Request-to-exit device. The panel does the thinking in the system so if a user presents a card to the card reader, the panel decides if he is allowed entry. If the user is allowed entry the panel signals the electric lock to open. Once the user opens and closes the door, the door sensor signals the panel to lock the electrical lock. The request-to-exit button serves as a way to signal the panel to open the door when you are inside the secured zone and want to exit.
Uses for Access Control?
An access control system decides who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to enter or exit, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. Before electrical applications in security ,access control would be accomplished by keys and locks. Depending on the application some access control products can offer more security than others. Many years ago locks and keys were the maximum level of access control security humans could achieve. A few decades ago, keypads and key cards were considered the most secure access control application. Nowadays, fingerprint and facial recognition technology is very advanced close to impossible to bypass.
