What is Access Control and how does it help secure your property?
Access Control for you is a security technique in which access is regulated by means of granting or restricting access to certain areas of your property. This can range from having an electronic strike installed on your house which can be linked to an access control system allowing access to the house or restricting access to those who do not have the access level or authority. Conversely Access control can be implemented on your apartment building through the use of a pin code to enter the building itself and/or swipe cards to enter a room.
Giving you the power to say who, what and where they can go
In the fields of physical security and information security, “access control” is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resource. The act of accessing may mean consuming, entering, or using. Permission to access a resource is called authorization. Locks and login credentials are two analogous mechanisms of access control.
Magnetic (mag) stripe card access control — also known as swipe card access control — is a low security controlled access solution. While swipe card systems are better known as door entry systems, they can also be used for other levels of security and offer you a wide range of additional features.
