Security Access Control Systems are widely used within commercial, retail and multi-tenanted apartment buildings. They are designed to increase security by giving organisations or multi-tenanted building managers the ability to grant or restrict personnel access to doors, lifts, gates and barrier arms within a building or compound. They are also used to log and monitor the activity of staff, visitors, contractors or tenants within and around a property or complex.
Access Control Security Systems range in size and complexity from single-door standalone systems to nationwide systems capable of controlling numerous doors and access points, and personnel in multiple buildings from one central location.
Security Access Control Systems require some form of recognition to permit access. This can be achieved either by PIN number, swipe card, proximity card/fob (tag), or using biometric scans such as fingerprint, retina or voice recognition.
