The Digital Revolution For Access Control Systems

The transition to digital solutions signifies a crucial shift in overcoming the constraints of outdated legacy systems. By leveraging advanced digital technologies, organisations can establish a seamless digital ecosystem that integrates keys, locks and access management efficiently.

Physical Access Control Examples:
Common examples of physical access control (PAC) encompass commercial door locks, turnstiles, security gate systems, or any physical barrier. Personal credential identification is a pivotal aspect, requiring users to prove their authorisation for accessing a designated physical space. There are three primary types of Access Control systems:

  • Discretionary Access Control (DAC)
  • Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
  • Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC)

Integration and Functionality
Our systems can function independently or as an integral part of a comprehensive security solution when combined with intruder alarms and CCTV systems. This grants users the ability to control staff and visitor access in, out, and around premises, monitor their locations, and provide individualised access to restricted areas. The approach ensures a secure, convenient, flexible, and cost-effective means of managing building access.

Asset Protection and Operational Efficiency
For businesses, safeguarding assets and employees while facilitating the movement of authorised personnel is crucial. Access control systems eliminate the need to leave doors unlocked all day, minimising the risk of opportunistic theft and damage. The installation of such systems ensures that locks need not be changed repeatedly. Access tokens, issued for door access, can be easily barred from the system if lost or stolen.
