Access control systems verify the identity of a person using an entry system such as a password, smart-card, biometric scan or facial recognition. This type of security system is available in a range of different formats such as key fobs, electronic door locks, card readers in office buildings, video camera access or an intercom. By implementing access control, organisations and individuals can ensure that only authorised individuals have access to certain areas, thereby minimising the risk of theft or vandalism.
This type of system is ideal for installation in a wide range of business and commercial premises including office buildings, warehouses, manufacturing facilities and shops. In addition, access control systems are becoming increasingly commonplace in schools, colleges, residential care homes, nurseries and medical facilities – in fact, any location where a high level of security is especially important.
