Control Access to Systems and Locations to Maintain Security


First there were locks and keys. Later, monitored alarm systems helped business owners limit access by unauthorized persons to properties and secured assets, equipment, and etc.. These all were systems designed to increase security and keep loss from theft and vandalism at bay. Now, card access control systems are a staple for office and building security.

Card Access Control Systems - The Next Frontier

Card Access Control Systems are the next technological frontier and the culmination of locked, limited physical access + electronic monitoriing + the flexibility of programmable advanced solutions.

Are you considering implementing Card Access Control or updating your current system?

These card control systems are most effictive and most often used as one aspect of an integrated, monitored security system, including video surveillance, closed circuit cameras, and other devices.

Eliminate Lost Or Forgotten Passwords

Lost or forgotten passwords  are another enormous security concern the risk that occurs when workers do not remember their own passwords. This may force workers to write their passwords down, after which they may leave them in plain view. A card access control security system resolves many of these issues. Apart from unlocking a door, it is critical to have a card access control security system to protect your building or office.

Implementing this type of card access control system helps eliminate the human error involved in any security system. The door must remain shut, but barring that error, the system is completely secure. Take control of your security and make sure your Milwaukee business is protected.

One Door Stand-Alone System

This is usually a single door control where the cards are used the same way as a key. All of the cards entered into the reader will function 24/7. These systems usually do not provide any type of report.

2 – 4 Door Entry Level Systems

This type has either a 2-door or 4-door access control panel and some may also be expanded to additional doors. Most of these systems connect to a PC or laptop for programming and then are disconnected. Usually they do allow for various access levels to program when cards are available for use.

Mid to Large Enterprise Systems

This larger scale system is probably the most common. The number of doors controlled is usually a multiple of 4 and they can be expanded to handle hundreds of doors, monitor alarms and are capable of communications via a network or the internet to remote sites just about anywhere. In the case of larger systems, it is common to have a guard staff monitoring alarm points and card transactions. These systems can even be interfaced with video camera systems and in some cases the building automation systems. Some systems can pass different types of information back and forth as needed. Depending on the system software, it may also be interfaced with the system in HR for single point enrollment.
