Access Control is a system which enables an authority to control access to areas in a given physical facilities. An access control point, which can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator or other physical barrier where granting access can be controlled using RFID technology.
Data security is generally very high using RFID technology. It also reduces the possibility of duplicating credentials. Secure or proprietary communication protocols can also be used to further enhance security.
A RFID based Access Control reader does not usually make an access decision but send a card number to an Access Control panel that verifies the number against an access list. Generally only entry is controlled and exit is uncontrolled. In cases where exit is also controlled a second reader is used on the opposite side of the door. The typical RFID tag is a RFID based contactless smartcard, key fob, wristband or smartphone sticker.
RFID based Access Control Systems are typically used for Enterprise Access, Car Park Access, Access to Gyms or Swimming Areas, Event Access, Library Access or Access to Hotel Rooms.
We offer an extensive range of Access Control products to cover these applications.
