Depending on the area in which the lock systems are used, it may be necessary to use access control to protect individual or all of the system’s doors from unauthorized access. In addition to the RFID terminals for the lock control with integrated access control, an external access control system that can be easily combined with the lock control:
Access control by numeric code and /or card
A Door Access Control Systems is a compact unit in which the input or reading device is also the control device. This is ideal for individual door systems as there is no need for complex cabling work.
The access control works with 24 VDC so that it can be supplied with power from the power supply unit of the lock system. It has protection class IP 65 and is available in stainless steel so that it can also be used in cleanroom areas.
The advantages of biometric access control over traditional methods of access control
Biometric access control systems offer some significant advantages over traditional methods of access control. These differences are best illustrated with examples used by large institutions. In large institutions, there are typically several different levels of access that individuals working in the institution have. However, the access levels may not correspond to the position the person holds in the facility. A data type who may be working on classified information actually has less access to the physical premises that a janitor who has a master key to an entire floor has.
When you look at these two options, the benefits of biometric access control are relatively easy to see.
Understand key control
Someone motivated to violate the facility’s security protocols could not only give their key to someone else, but they could also have it copied, or simply allow someone to enter
Unfortunately, with an access control system that uses physical keys, these problems are nearly impossible to fully control.
It’s also important to note that simple incompetence can cause serious security problems.
Someone who loses their master key, for example, can create a situation where anyone can gain access to any door in a facility that needs to be absolutely secure.
Biometric access control helps address all of these problems.
With an advanced biometric scanning system, it is almost impossible to gain unauthorized access to a resource to which one has no authorization. For example, a fake fingerprint will not have sweat glands, will not have the same conductivity as actual skin, and will have other defects that can be scanned.
Obviously, biometric information cannot be lost or misplaced. Nor can it be maliciously or accidentally passed on to another individual. That makes this type of access control much more secure than one that relies on physical keys.
Physical keys can come to anyone consciously or accidentally. No matter who. This does not apply to biometric data, which are unique to each individual from whom they are recorded.
