Access control systems are becoming more affordable and necessary in today’s business world.  There are several different control options you can implement from key pads biometric readers or smart card readers to entry phone solutions. Below is a quick overview of different access control options:

Keypads are access devices that limit entry to authorized personnel that have a preset code.

Key Fobs are individually coded devices that can be distributed to employees and authorized personnel. Fobs can be easily activated or deactivated with a simple computer program.

Access Cards offer the same functionality as key fobs, only in a different design. Access cards can also be used as identity badges and are popular with larger businesses.

Smart Cards are a more sophisticated version of the card access system. There is an additional layer of security encoded on each card for more complex programming.

Biometric Access Control is coded based on an individual’s biological information such as fingerprint, hand print or eye/retina scanning. These system are typically more expensive and used in situations where a high level of security is necessary.

Phone Entry Systems are typically used at businesses and residential facilities where a visitor is required to call an individual in the building to gain access.
