An "access control" or "door access" system is a security solution designed to regulate and manage access to physical spaces within an organization. It provides an efficient and secure way of granting or denying entry to individuals based on predefined permissions and criteria.
The main components of an access control system typically include:
Access Control Devices: These devices are used to authenticate individuals and grant or deny access. They can include keycards, proximity cards, key fobs, biometric scanners (fingerprint, iris, or facial recognition), PIN pads, or even mobile devices with access control apps.
Access Control Software: The software acts as the central hub for managing access control devices, user permissions, and access rules. It allows administrators to define access levels, create user profiles, set up time-based restrictions, and generate reports for monitoring access activities.
Access control systems can be implemented in various environments, such as office buildings, data centers, educational institutions, hospitals, and more. The core objective is to ensure that only authorized personnel or users can gain entry to specific areas or resources while preventing unauthorized access.
