How does Access Control work?

Once a system is installed, all doors being controlled will automatically lock when they are closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token are unable to enter. Doors can be set to unlock during a designated time frame. Access may be restricted by time, allowing access to some users at certain times of day or night.

Which system is right for you?

Online – Networked Access Control

Networked systems offers central control. This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors instantly – opening doors, barring tokens and building lockdown. Other benefits of this type of system are flexible control, allowing different permissions for individuals or group users.

Networked systems tend to be found in schools, offices and healthcare facilities, such as hospitals.

These systems are perfect for managing multiple doors and users. It can be extended easily and offers features like event reporting, energy saving and integration with other systems.

Offline – Standalone Access Control

This type of system may be used to control access on as many or as little integrated doors in a building. Entry is gained when using a pin number or electronic token. A standalone system is programmed as each door, compared to one central PC with the Networked. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, each door must be updated.

A standalone system work well in small businesses, storage units or sites with limited users.

Token management is simple and the system can be extended easily as requirements change.
