Access control is, in reality, an everyday phenomenon. A lock on a car door is essentially a form of access control. A PIN on an ATM system at a bank is another means of access control. Bouncers standing in front of a nightclub is perhaps a more primitive mode of access control, given the evident lack of information technology involved, but it’s access control all the same. The possession of access control is of prime importance when persons seek to secure important, confidential, or sensitive information and equipment.
Access control is used to limit the movements of unauthorized persons to sensitive or restricted areas of your premises. These include stock rooms, IT rooms, warehouse areas, managers’ offices, the cash office, etc. The most basic form of access control is a lock and key. However, it is not always convenient to physically unlock a door each time you need access. Keys can also easily be copied and given to people who should not have access. For a wide range of building types and security levels, a digital keypad that requires a code is an option that eliminates the use of a physical key.
Our network systems allow full computer control over adding or removing users, or setting up different access levels or timeslots.
