Access control is, in fact, nothing but “who, where and when may occur”. Thus, an access control system recognizes a person who has a valid ticket, determines whether it is entitled to the place at the right time, and whether access is granted or not.
Access control means end-to-end security and is, therefore, an important link in almost every security plan. Too often, the risks of a company or an institution are underestimated “during opening hours”. In many cases, a company or office is most at risk during full occupancy.
You can apply access controls to entrances and exits, but also control access to specific rooms or premises via door access control. The electronic access control brings many practical advantages. If you e.g. lose the card, it can be easily removed from the system and made unusable. By losing normal keys, the problems and costs, on the contrary, can be significant. Furthermore, with a simple intervention, it is also possible to detect the presence of persons so that the receptionist of a company can quickly see which employees/visitors are present.
