Through the management and control of access to any given area, homes, businesses and government installations are able to enhance security by pre-determining who is allowed to enter and exit an area, and even their level of access within. Replacing the traditional ‘lock and key’, advanced access control systems, such as keypad alarm systems and biometric readers, bring with them an increased level of security. Advanced access control systems allow managers to automatically control the locking of doors, and even document the movements of individuals within the area. Such information could be vital in the investigation of a security incident.
Access control systems (ACS) can be an effective part of a comprehensive security plan, alongside surveillance, CCTV and electronic locks. ACS is commonly used in high-security areas and high-risk buildings, such as banks, hotels, government installations and places of restricted access. Laboratories and other places that store sensitive items use ACS, including thumb-print readers and remote access control. Such systems are even often a requirement for businesses that work with sensitive government contracts.
