Limit admission to designated areas using A & A Security's Access Control Systems. When you swipe a card or key tag, you can accomplish multiple functions such as arming or disarming security and activating a door strike to open a door. Each swipe can perform as many actions as desired and can be customized based on user, time, date, or card reader. For even more security, you can tie in other automatic functions including lighting, energy management, video surveillance, and audio/video systems.
With the new Access Control products available today, wiring methods have simplified allowing us to run everything between the controller and the readers over a single 4 conductor or Cat5 wire, including power for all residential or small commercial applications. Some of the more popular areas that we install Access Control include office buildings, gyms, theaters, cellars, and pool entry areas.
From mankind’s very first access control system to today’s modern electronic access control, there has always been a need to protect people and assets by limiting access to sensitive areas. Early humans had their methods, but these have since evolved to more manageable solutions in the industrial age with the use of doors and guards, then locks and keys. The practice of installing electronic access control systems began in the 1960s to eliminate the problems associated with lost keys, having the ability to instantly add, allow, restrict or deny someone’s access, and to be able to immediately generate an activity report on people’s “comings and goings.”
Early systems used simple keypads with PIN (personal identification number) codes, followed by “swipe” or insert cards such as magnetic stripe or Wiegand technology. These were called “card keys,” or “key cards,” which are terms still in use by business' and people today. In the late 1970s, non-contact “proximity cards” or RFID technology became popular because of its many advantages.
These access cards are used in conjunction with an access control card reader. This card reader is connected to an intelligent door controller which contains stored programming information from the access control software about who is allowed where and when, as well as other functions that the system can perform. Not only do these access systems grant or deny access, they maintain a history of system activity that can be used to generate management reports.
Today, security – personal, logical and physical, is more on the mind and at the top of list than ever before. End users from building tenants to small business owners to enterprise security officers are more aware of their security needs than ever before and are realizing that electronic access control is central to managing security better. Whether it’s a small strip mall, a medium-sized office building, or just a small commercial store – controlling access to the facility is a critical component of managing business risks today.
