Diversity of the door access control system
There are a lot of different modern systems which regulate access to a guarded building, premises or a fenced area. As for the operating conditions, access control systems may be divided in 2 groups:
local systems mounted on only one door or other obstruction device;
network access control systems, covering several access points to the facility and to its individual premises.
According to the method of setting up and issuing a report, building access control systems can be:
software-controlled, configurable via the computer or smartphone, issuing its own report to it;
autonomous configuration, which is performed using its own screen and keyboard.
As for the identifiers, they can be:
keychain with a chip;
card access control systems;
a contactless card with a tag applied using RFID technology.
It is a kind of object that stores the access code for the object, by which the system determines the owner and whether they have access rights. The code entered from the keyboard, car numbers or biometric data of a person can also be used as a kind of identifier of the door access control system.
What are biometric access control systems?
The most common methods of the biometric identification today are fingerprint recognition and identification by the geometry of the face or the retina. This kind of control offers much better protection compared to traditional accounting and access control tools. In fact, the biometric parameters of a person are much more difficult or even impossible to fake. Therefore, these commercial access control systems are among the most reliable.
Besides, modern biometric control devices, including systems using face recognition, operate almost in real time and provide reliable access control, time tracking at the enterprise, etc. This type of control is also successfully used to ensure the safety of trade secrets of an enterprise or an individual, restricting access to classified content for unauthorized people. Finally, the simplicity and reliability of biometric building access control systems makes it possible to use it literally at any facility that requires differentiation of access rights.
