The main point of an access control system

Typically, there are three types of credentials, something the user knows, such as a password or a pin, something the user has, such as a smart card or fob, and something the user is, such as a fingerprint, voice recognition, or an bio metric scan. Obviously, using a keypad or pin to access an area is the cheapest and easiest way to restrict access to a building. However, for added security or an upgraded system, using a smart card or fingerprint recognition system will ensure added security.


You decide who should have an access

An access control point can be a multitude of things including a door, turnstile, gate, elevator, or another physical barrier where access needs to be restricted. Most often this barrier is a door leading into a secure building that implements several elements in order to deter those who should not have access. At the lowest level of security, there is a stand alone electronic lock. This is then unlocked by an operator or a guard who is given the proper credentials. If you wanted, you could automate this by adding a keypad or a card reader which would then send a code to an automated system and allow access if the code given is correctly read. In cases where entry and exit access must be verified, a second access control system would be installed on the exit point and the same credential given, be it a code, card, or fingerprint.


The most popular type of access control

Access control systems are generally defined by the type of security they offer; Basic, or non-intelligent readers, simply read a card or a pin and allow or deny access based on what is read through the automated system. While this is the most popular type of system, it does only offer basic protection and should only be used when moderate to heavy security is not necessary. Semi-intelligent readers have both input and outputs necessary to control door hardware (such as the lock, exit button, etc.) but do not ultimately make the decision to allow or deny entry or exit. If power is interrupted or disconnected the system will stop working.


Control the door hardware with your fingerprint

Intelligent readers are the most expensive, but highest security, type of access control. These types of systems include fingerprint and biometric scanners. Like the semi-intelligent reader, they have both input and outputs needed in order to control the door hardware, but they also have the memory and processing power to make independent decisions for access. Some readers may have additional features such as an LCD and function buttons for data collection purposes (clock-in/clock-out), camera/speaker/microphone for intercom, and smart card read/write support.
