What is Access Control?

Access control is the ability to permit or deny entry to your business or home without requiring a key. It is highly desirable in companies with a large number of employees, companies with a high turnover rate, or companies that allow access to customers during off business hours. Keyless entry (access by means other than key), allows you to grant or remove access permission for single individuals at any time. This removes the need to rekey your business when an employee leaves your employment and eliminates the business disruption caused by getting new keys to the remaining employees.

At its most basic, access is controlled through a single standalone device. Access is granted by a keypad where a personal identification code (PIN) is entered, a card reader where a card is swiped, a proximity detector, or biometrics (finger prints and eye scans). When the device determines that you have provided the proper credentials, it lets you in.

Basic access control devices allow access to a set number of users by entering a pin code. Additional features include bypass mode (where anyone can gain access during a given time period), audit control (receive a list of who accessed the device and when), programming by software (a nice feature when there will be many users), access control by a prox card instead of a pin code, and completely wireless systems that can be accessed and programmed by computer regardless of user location.
