Access Control

Access Control is defined as the selective limiting of access to a building, room or resource. No one can be allowed unrestricted access to any area they wish. When dealing with an area that must have restricted access conditions, access control methods must be utilized. The most common form of access control is a lock and key. Only those with the key are allowed access to the item or area that is locked. But physical keys can be lost or copied, thus limiting their usefulness. The best thing to do would be install an electronic access control system that uses some form of biophysical trait as a key or a password that is allotted to each individual.

This form of access control is ideal when dealing with an area that has a large number of authorised users, but still needs to be guarded against unwanted intruders. Each person who can be allowed access can use their fingerprint, retinal scan, voice pattern, a physical key card or a password to gain access. This means that any information regarding the people who have access and when they access the said area can be monitored and controlled in real time.


The rising popularity of wireless technology allows supervisors an unrivalled ease of access to the security system control panel, since it can be operated from any mobile device with the right authorisation. Such a platform would allow one to even modify the rules of access individually and can be useful when someone forgets their password and it needs to be changed. An entire lockdown can also be initiated at the click of a button, allowing no one in or out of the security blanket.
