Think for a second you have a car, which is a pretty important asset that you have, and this asset of yours is placed on a vulnerable spot where there is no light or any means of defence or protection for your property. Of course, you could say that it would be impossible for you to do that since you invested resources for it and its function, you are obliged to take the extra precautionary measures to keep it safe.
The same with businesses and establishments and other institutions. Because you invested on it meant that you are required to keep it safe and keep it away from whatever harm that might befall your property. Access control system does that to your business, it helps you keep your investments safe from harm and unwanted intrusion with fool proof sophisticated technology. Here are some basic parts of a control system that will keep your property safe.
These are the special readers or sensors that identifies the card and gives a feedback information on whether the card holder is permitted access to an area or not. Some card readers are pre-set to some credentials thus it remains to be fixed, but other card readers are set with the permission of the controller to be changed according to what they want. Between the two it is much safer to have the latter as a default setup.
Various Access Cards
These are the alternative for conventional keys, whereas the other is too bulky to bring and difficult to tell from other keys, with access cards it is easier to have and carry around and in addition it is easy to use since it will only open designated doors and portals that it is given access to.
These cards have its own designated places that it has permission to access depending on the system or the credentials that it requires. This part of electronic security feature of the system makes it one of the most sophisticated means of locking and opening doors.
Security System Server
The server holds the whole protocol for security in the whole system. The server also holds security details with regards to the information of the employees, who holds the cards, movement across the whole vicinity, and even the data for the time and day in which a specific area is accessed and who accessed it. That is because of these reasons that the server is the most well protected part of the security system.
Access controls are the apps or programs that can control aspects of the processes in the security system. Remote access controls can actually give permission to certain areas to be accessed and can control and monitor the camera movements and even control the alarm security setting of the whole institution so long as it is connected to the security system.
These apparatuses do not constitute 100% safety, not unless the owner uses these tools efficiently and in the right manner. Regardless, having a technologically advanced security system is way better than having nothing at all.
