The ever-changing tech world has led to enhanced security inventions. One of the biggest benefits of security tech enhancements is the use of access controls which limits the number of people that can access certain areas.
There are different types of access control systems, the only issue is that not all the different types will work for the specific needs of your commercial property or business.
That is why it is important to familiarize yourself with the different types available in the market and pick the one that is appropriate and a perfect fit for your intended operation.
There are basically three methods of access control systems, and all the different types of access controls fall into these three categories, that is;
- Discretionary Access Control – it gives full control to the owner of the property, he’s literally responsible for who enters and leaves, both physically and virtually. It isn’t the best logically
- Managed Access control – this system is more secure, only persons with a high level of clearance can access the premise.
- Role-Based Access Control – this is a user-friendly model; the system administrator is allowed to group users and adjust permissions for access from a central database.
The different types of access control systems are often defined by their reader technology. Here are some of the most common types of access controls in the market today:
- Keypad readers – use a passcode or pin for entry credentials
- Swipe card – these have magnetic strips containing authentication data on the key cards and badges for access
- RFID readers – Radio Frequency Identification technology for access control is often called proximity access control, they also use key cards and key fobs for entry.
- Biometric readers – these use scanners to identify users by their unique physical aspects can be fingerprints, facial recognition, or the use of Iris.
- Smart lock readers – are versatile, they combine different forms of the above-mentioned access control types into one system.
Which of these do you prefer for your business?
