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.

National Operations Network: Access Control Professionals
Be it at home or work; effective access control is a necessity. Crime rates worldwide are at an all-time high and showing no signs of dissipating. Ensuring the safety of your staff and loved ones should be, at all times, the highest priority.
Luckily, with the rapid advancement of technology in the world today, modern access control systems no longer impose uncomfortable restrictions on the movement of your family or co-workers within their environment but can be tailored to suit your lifestyles or work processes without being intrusive or restrictive.
What You Should Know about Business Access Control
Modern access control is about much more than simply ensuring that intruders cannot gain access to your home or work premises. Although this is its primary function, it is also about restricting access to certain areas for not authorised people to use those areas. Whether that means keeping the kids indoors and away from the outdoor pool area or ensuring that only authorised individuals access your company’s workshop or factory floor, or even certain offices, is up to you.
- We offer a wide range of fully programmable solutions for controlling access to the premises and certain areas within the premises. Our systems incorporate the latest technology, ensuring that you have complete control over the system, ensuring a secure and user-friendly mobile interface.
- Our systems are highly versatile and interoperable with your alarm system, meaning that in addition to restricting access to your premises, it acts as an extension of your alarm system, informing your local control room or monitoring company of any breach or breach attempt. Incorporated with a CCTV system, you will even be able to see the event and thereby help authorities identify the offender.
- You can access your system from anywhere via a mobile application, allowing you to view a live feed of your CCTV or even change settings on the go to enable access to authorised persons. If one of your employees needs to access the office over the weekend, you can allow access remotely.
What Sets National Operations Network Apart Regarding Swipe Card Access Systems?
There have been many innovations in the access industry since the invention of swipe card systems. Still, to date, it remains one of the most effective ways to ensure that those with the relevant authorisation can only access your premises. Modern technology has made the swipe card system even more effective.
- The use of a swipe card system allows you to control and monitor who enters your premises and when. It can double as an effective timekeeping mechanism to monitor which staff members are regularly late, eliminating the need for an additional timekeeping mechanism.
- Should something go wrong – like money disappearing from the office – your card system allows you to see which staff members were in the building at the time of the incident and who can be ruled out.
- Your swipe card system represents the ultimate access solution. Even if someone gains access unlawfully using a lost or stolen access card, you can see which card was used, which in turn can aid in determining how the card was obtained and by who.
