Types of Access Control Systems

Access control systems control and regulate who has door access to a building, keeping your commercial premises more secure.

Our team of experienced system designers and installers can work with you to ensure your team can access areas of your building when needed and restrict those that don’t.

In simple terms, an access control system can be applied to a physical point such as a door as a simple stand-alone system controlling one or two doors. Alternatively, it can be electronically networked to cover an entire building or multiple buildings.

Standalone Door Access Systems

If you're thinking about access security and the best way of dealing with it, a basic or standalone door access control system is a simple way to control one or two doors in a commercial premise and is not connected to any other systems.

This option suits smaller business premises or those with simple discretionary access requirements.

Networked Access Control

An electronically networked control system can be two or more doors networked over a building, several public or private sites or geographically spread across locations around the country or world. Organisations with multiple sites often benefit from this kind of networked access management solution, where integrated access security is paramount.

There are a number of solutions available for networked access control, and our team can work with you to identify the best option for your industrial and commercial sites.

What are access control systems?

In practical terms, entry, or access control systems are a physical form of electronic and mechanical access control that limits access to campuses, buildings, rooms and IT assets, using logic-based software products, where general public access should be withheld, limited or at the very least monitored. By choosing the most appropriate system to restrict and monitoring those who enter an area and when, the benefits can extend far beyond those of protecting places, people and possessions.

What are the different types of physical access control system?

Physical access control systems usually come in three variations: Discretionary Access Control (DAC), Mandatory Access Control (MAC), and Role-Based Access Control (RBAC). They are used to identify an individual, authenticate them, and then permit the individual entrance to campuses, buildings, rooms and IT assets.

How does a door access control system work?

Physical door access, or entry control systems are digital networks that electronically control entry into and out of designated areas, including campuses, buildings and rooms. The main elements of access control systems are the electronic tags, tag readers, access control panels, and locks that release doors. Via a control unit, a reader on a door is powered and emits radio waves using its antenna. The electronic tags also have an antenna which receives radio waves from the reader. Together these work to create a seamless, automated experience for the user, whether it be an employee, visitor, student, customer or supplier.
