What are the types of Access Control Equipment?

Code Based access systems
A secure pin code entered onto a touch pad/screen is required, before Access to a controlled area is allowed.

Proximity access control
Proximity access control systems use cards/tags and readers to operate the access control. Proximity cards come in a variety of sizes but most modern systems use a card the same size and thickness as a credit card. Proximity tags can be clipped to key rings and can provide a more convenient and robust method of operating the access control reader.

The newest technology in access control, biometric systems use the body’s unique characteristics such as the retina, fingerprints or palm prints to determine authorised access through the use of fingerprint readers etc
Access Control Systems can also be integrated with Time and Attendance systems and job costing systems to give administrators or management full control of their facility. Biometric time & attendance system requires staff to scan their fingerprint when they clock on or off, eliminating the risk of buddy punching and improving decision making by delivering real time information on staff activity.
