Peace of mind starts with monitoring who enters your premises
An access control point can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or other physical barriers, where granting access can electronically rely on users credentials, biometric fingerprints, face, mobile phone, card readers and pin on.
Typically, the access point is a door. An electronic advanced access control door can contain several elements. At its most basic, there is a stand-alone electric lock. The lock is unlocked by an operator with a switch. To automate this, operator intervention is replaced by a reader. The reader could be a keypad where a code is entered, it could be a card reader, or it could be a biometric reader. Readers do not usually make an access decision, but send a card number to an access control panel that verifies the number against an access list.
