How Access Control Systems Work?

Access Control Systems enable an individual or group to control access to certain areas within a facility or computer information system. In physical security there are several components related to this type of system that I will be covering in this article.

Control Points

Access control points can be a door, turnstile, elevator, parking gate, or any other barrier where access can be granted or denied. Most access points are doors and these points can be controlled by electric locks. Rather than requiring a human operator to control the locks, an electronic reader is used to determine the level of accessability that is to be granted to incoming traffic.

Types of Readers

There are many different kinds of readers that are used to control entry points. Readers can use biometrics to scan finger or hand prints, they can be keypads that require a key code, and they can also be used to read keycards. Advances in network technology over the past decade have led to the increased use of IP readers. These readers are often PoE enabled which allow them to be easily integrated with battery backups. This means that in the event of a power failure, the control system will still operate properly. Control readers do not usually make the decision, but instead pass the information along to a control panel that verifies the proper access level.

Cost and Benefit

Access control systems are extremely affordable these days and can easily be installed into any size facility. In addition to affordability, the benefits of having a control system far out-weight the cost incurred.

Top 3 benefits of using Access Control Systems:

  1. Authorization – granting only authorized users entry to doors or systems
  2. Accountability – logs and records that can account for an individual’s actions
  3. Identification – verifying an individual’s identify and level of accessability

Video conferencing is fast becoming a popular tool for face-to-face communication across distances. Though it is primarily used in the business community, there are other areas that would benefit greatly if video conferencing were used more readily, such as education and personal communication. Listed below are some of the benefits each of these fields reaps when using this technology:

Business Video Conferencing

Video conference is cost-effective for business. Air travel, car rental, and hotel stays are all substantial expenses that can be avoided by using video conference. Conferencing via video allows for a face-to-face meeting with parties in several different locations that is more personable than emails or video tape without all the cost of physically being there.

There are many companies located throughout the country who specialize in video conference as well as other forms of telecommunication. The prices for these services are considerably more affordable than all of the travel expenses that can be incurred otherwise. Equipment may be available for rental as well, in case you don't have what is needed. No matter how many parties are to be involved and no matter where they are in the world, video conferencing is a great way to bridge the distance!

To meet the demands of your market and to keep your business processes and procedures even easier, an audio visual company is essential especially when you need the one-time installation for your conference rooms or require periodic setups for a string of events. So you need a service that is reliable, flexible, and highly capable in every aspect of audio visual system integration. Check out the following guide set by the experts in choosing such smart companies that your business can rely on.

- Consider the experience. Experience in this field is highly essential. What has the company done so far with its previous projects? Has it installed systems for many offices? Has it done more events than corporate system set up? Has it also done projects for leading exhibitions in and around the region? In learning about the audio visual company's previous works, you determine its capacity for smaller and larger projects. You also get insight into the sort of system solutions it can recommend, for different requirements.

It is also best to know if the company has reliable suppliers. Most of these companies will have suppliers for a wide range of equipment, for rent and for sale. Some companies will also have their own equipment to rent. But you may want more options so you have the opportunity to compare prices and brands. So look for reliable audio visual companies that offer more than enough thoroughly vetted suppliers for your needs.
