Premise Control Systems is a means of controlling who enters a location and when. The person entering may be an employee, a contractor or a visitor and they may be on foot, driving a vehicle or using another mode of transport. Improve efficiency of your business processes and site or building management.
When we talk about a physical access control system, we’re usually referring to an electronic security system. They typically use an identifier such as an access card to authorise people to enter certain areas.
Mechanical keys are the simplest form of physical access control and the method many smaller organisations use. However, using mechanical keys has several issues, keys can be difficult to manage as people do loose keys and at times keys don’t leave a audit trail. By using an electronic access control system, you can avoid the downsides of using mechanical keys and also gain much more control.
Access cards are still the most common identifiers used. You present your card to a reader and if all the information is correct the lock will energise/de-energise allowing you to enter the area.
Depending on how secure you would like the process to be you can also have a secondary identifier programmed. This means after your staff presenting their card to the reader they then have to enter a secondary identifier before being allowed access. This can be done in many ways from typing in a code to bio-metric readers.
