Which System is right for your business

There are two types of access control systems:

1. Standalone access control.

This type of system may be used to control access to one or many independent doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code or PIN with a keypad, or by presenting a proximity or magstripe token, depending on which type of reader is fitted.

These systems are programmed at each door. If tokens need to be barred or codes changed, this action must be completed at every door on the system.

Typical applications:

Standalone systems are great for smaller sites with a relatively small number of users, token management is simple, and the system can be extended easily as your requirements change.

2. PC based access control.

Referred to as 'PC based' or 'Networked' access control, these systems may be used to control one or many doors in a building. Access is gained by using a numeric code, or PIN with a keypad, by presenting a proximity or magstripe token or by 'possession' with hands-free tokens depending on which type of reader is fitted. PC based access control offers central control, via a network. This means that commands given at the PC are sent to each of the doors. A token can be barred from all of the doors instantly. Another benefit of this type of system is flexible control, allowing you to grant different permissions for individuals or groups of users.

Reports may also be generated to determine who went where and when. Many systems allow control of additional buildings via existing LAN/WAN. PC based systems are increasingly being used to control other services within buildings, for example; intruder alarms, fire doors, lifts and lighting.

Typical applications:

PC based systems are great for medium to large sites as they make managing large numbers of doors and users easy. The system can be extended very easily, and advanced features such as event reporting and integration with CCTV and other systems make such a system much more than just a replacement for a bunch of keys.
