Access control refers to a security system that limits or restricts people from designated areas. Almost every type of security system, from home security to retail to corporate and commercial security, utilise some form of access control.
As a result, Centec uses a wide range of leading brands to ensure you get the best, most secure outcomes.
Commonly used technology for access control include:
- Proximity cards
- Smart cards
- Biometrics (fingerprints, etc)
- SIM cards
- Keypad door locks
- Visitor badges
- Wireless remote control
- Pin code systems
Access control can be as simple as restricting access via a single door, or as complex as varying degrees of access for different doors and sectors in your business.
Access control also allows you to manage the access of personnel to your property or specific areas. For example, in hotels, you can restrict access to customer rooms to cleaning staff only. Combined with remote viewing services, like CCTV, allows you to check who is accessing areas of your business. You can also vary access according to employee or visitor level, or by hours.
CCTV can also be used in conjunction with access control to allow certain vehicles and employees into your site, without the need for cards or fobs, etc.
Further, CCTV and access control can be used in emergency situations to determine who may still be in the building.
By utilising access control as part of your security system, you can:
- Lock doors to restrict access
- Track door access
- Audit access to your business
- Visitor badges or passes
- Track employee timesheets/attendance
- Lift access control
