Access Control Systems Overview:

We walk you through the purchase process to help you get the best Access Control System for your Business need.?

For many years, the challenge of providing and maintaining a safe and secure workplace while protecting critical assets was relatively simple. In many cases, a variety of physical barriers were successful deterrents to intrusion and theft.

One of the biggest advantages of an electronic access control systems is the ability to document and report access activity in the controlled area. Most small single door applications have reporting available either through a printer or through your computer that will shows an audit trail of door access activity of the area. This is a critical component to the access control system in the eyes of our clients, by helping them to quickly understand who had access to those critical areas of your business before and after the incident.

Today’s marketplace is more complex and competitive. Critical assets are now both tangible and intangible, and with advanced technology readily available to everyone, many institutions and corporations both large and small are seeking more sophisticated methods to safeguard their employees and assets. Access control systems’ place in the security setup is right at the front lines. They fulfill a dual role: in addition to keeping unauthorized people out of, they have to let authorized users through. In addition to allowing or denying access, many access control systems track who comes and goes and when. Ready to buy an access control system for your business? We can help.

For most companies managing their keys has been a big problem. Some keys are easily duplicated when lost or given from one employee to the other to restricted areas and terminated employees more than often do not return their keys then the companies are stuck with the cost of re-keying their locks. If however, an employee leaves the company without returning their access card, the employer can easily delete the former employee’s access. From a networked system, that access can even be changed remotely. An Subcontractor specializes in the design, installation, and maintenance of comprehensive security systems that integrate specific customer requirements with the latest technology. In fact, many of the largest educational institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and hospitals in all metropolitan areas have relied on the expertise of for years to keep them at the forefront of research and technology and the safeguarding of their employees and assets.



The most popular choice is the proximity card. Proximity cards contain small radio transponders that identify the holder to the system. The “proximity” aspect is that the card only needs to be held near the reader to work. These cards are easy to carry – they’re the size and shape of a credit card – and can be printed with the owner’s picture for additional security. They’re also inexpensive and long-lasting. The same technology can be used in other shapes: key fobs similar to car alarm transponders, for example. You may pay a small premium for these Fobs, but they can be more convenient for some users.

 Magnetic cards are even more like credit cards: they use the same magnetic strip as credit cards to hold the owner’s identification. They have most of the same advantages as proximity cards, but because they have to be physically swiped through the reader, they can wear out more quickly. For higher-level security, look at biometric security devices. Biometric access control systems use some part of the user’s body for identification. Fingerprint readers and hand scanners are common, but retinal scanners are also available. There are significant security advantages to biometric systems, the most significant being that the entry requirements are next to impossible to steal or fake. In addition, users can’t forget or lose their cards. However, because biometric systems are far more expensive than other types of access control, they’re really only worth the cost if you need very high-grade security. They can also be slow to use and can raise privacy concerns with some employees. At the other end of the spectrum, Keypads are typically the least expensive way to get started with access control. There are no cards or tags to issue and keep track of: you just assign numerical codes to individuals or groups. While inexpensive, keypads are the least secure option: codes can be stolen simply by careful observation or from employees who (inevitably) write down their codes.
