What is Access Control?

One may ask, what is a customized access control system? An access control system is a security protocol that combines hardware and software to regulate and monitor who can access a secure physical or technological space. Access control is a high technology system used to secure both commercial and residential entry points. An example of access control is the automated garage door that opens to a gated condominium structure. The door will open automatically for residents when the proximity reader detects an access card (usually a sticker or a key-card) inside the vehicle.

Main Components of an Access Control System:

Access Control Panels - these are the main computer system of the access control system which store all the pertinent information. A control panel usually consists of a circuit board and battery. The number of access points (doors) can be configured here and easily upgraded, depending on your system.

Access Control Readers - these readers are placed at each access point. They function to recognize compatible access control devices such as access cards or keys. Some are able to detect devices while others must be psychically activated (swiping, tapping). Other access control readers include keypad entry readers and biometric readers. Biometric readers are the highest form of security because they employ fingerprint readers to determine access entry.

Access Control Devices - this could be a magnetic keychain that signals an electronic code to the access reader. An example of this is the small magnetic keychain you use to enter a shared gym locker room. These devices contain information about the user and their access rights.

Entry and Exit Hardware - these are electronically powered magnetic magnets that hold an access point locked until the access control panel sends a signal to the control reader that any given entry point is safe to be unlocked.

Access control is one of the most rapidly growing areas of electronic security with ongoing technology developments focused toward on the highest level of protection. Manage the access to specific rooms and areas in your commercial building with a Champion Lock and Safe Company access control system installation that allows you to program and monitor and control acess to your San Antonio facility.
