An access control point, which can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or other physical barrier where granting access can be electronically controlled. Typically the access point is a door. An electronic access control door can contain several elements. At its most basic there is a stand-alone electric lock. The lock is unlocked by an operator with a switch. To automate this, operator intervention is replaced by a reader. The reader could be a keypad where a code is entered, it could be a card reader, or it could be a biometric reader.
In today’s environment, it’s more important than ever to deploy an access control system
with state-of-the-art security features. Centralized management, user-level permissions,
detailed logging & advanced notifications are all tools that will combat theft and vandalism.
