A guide to door access control

Access control is typically a system that is used to control the access allowed into a building. You could have a simple push plate or something completely different like a computer based information system. This type of control, in accordance with physical security, is known to be the second layer of security and necessary in some environments. Read this article which is a guide to door access control.

Push plate switches

There are stainless steel plates that are also available in a rather wide variety for those who don’t need a modern computer system as access control. This is simpler, but not as effective as computer based entry and isn’t recommended for access into a high security area. They come in many different shapes and sizes and offer custom as well as standard engravings. You also have the option of mounting boxes and accessories if you wish. These are generally for automatic doors that allow entry to the public. Sensors Different to the push plates, sensors are also popular and are available in a wide variety. You get the Profusion Sensor, Zonescan Sensor, Reflex Sensor, Topscan Sensor and many more. The way in which they work: The scanner will detect when someone is near the door and the door will automatically open and close again once the person or people have walked through. They are easily mountable and come in many different shapes and sizes.

Fingerprint entry

This is the option for high security areas. This is an interesting and more modern entry system, and completely safe. It cannot be bypassed; if your fingerprint is not registered on the system, you will not be able to get through the door. This is safer than using passcards or passwords as each fingerprint proves one's identity. Home and office As there are so many different options to choose from, it is important for you to look into it properly. Look at how much money you are able to spend on security systems and which of them will suit you or your company best. These lock security systems are not only for businesses, but homes too; you can invest in it as a garage opener, on your security doors, gates and sliding doors in your home as well as any other access gates in and around your house.
