Access Control provides the ability to control, monitor and restrict the movement of people, assets or vehicles in, out and around a building or site.
Access Control provides ‘owners’ with the ability to protect their people, assets and intellectual property. Unlike old-fashioned methods such as a lock and key, Access Control provides not only security but also a record of events that have occurred. It also offers the unique identification of individuals or goods entering or leaving controlled zones within a building or site.
Access Control should be considered wherever there is a need for restriction or control of access. Typical applications include: staff and visitor movement around an office building or site; the controlled movement of assets in, out and around a building. Examples include the entry of personnel into secure areas, the movement of patients, staff and/or visitors around a hospital, or the control of entry into car parks.
