Why Should You Install an Access Control?
Access control systems are a security method that allows restricting the access or entry of people to a specific area, for example the workplace, an office or a warehouse.
The system identifies a person, verifies if said person is allowed access to the restricted area, authorizes their entry or not, and records in its database the activity that has taken place, for example the time of entry and exit of each employee of your workplace.
Among many other advantages, these systems make it possible to dispense with the use of keys in the company, avoid workers having to open the door when their colleagues arrive, limit the specific areas that each employee can access, and prevent the entry of unidentified intruders, significantly improving the security of your facilities.
Some systems carry out a presence control functionality, since by registering the entry and exit activity of your employees, they allow automating the document management required for compliance with the Working Time Register Law, which requires the registration of the working hours of your employees (in force in Spain since March 12, 2019).
There are also systems that incorporate the ability to keep track of the capacity at all times, which is especially important for stores and commercial premises in the current situation of security restrictions due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.
Types of Access Controls Systems We Can Install
At Kualitek we have extensive experience as installers of access, presence and capacity controls. Below we explain the different types of access control that exist, classified according to the identification system they use:
- Biometric systems. They are access control systems that allow verifying the identity of people by identifying an individual and non-transferable physical characteristic, which makes them highly secure systems and minimizes fraud and access by unauthorized people. The most used are facial recognition and fingerprint readers.
- Proximity systems. These are simple systems that consist of approaching a reader with a card or key ring with an incorporated chip. If the reader verifies that the bearer of the object (card or key ring) is authorized to access the restricted area, then it will activate the mechanism to allow access. There are two types of cards that are often used in this type of system: magnetic cards, and RFID (radio frequency identification) cards.
- Password systems. As its name suggests, this type of access control has a numeric keyboard in which it is necessary to enter the correct password for the system to allow access to the restricted area.
In order to be used as a working time control system, the access control system must have the ability to unequivocally identify each employee, record their entry and exit times, and store this information in a database. centralized data.
Each type of identification system presents a series of advantages and disadvantages, so before making a decision about which one to install in your company or business, it is convenient that you inform yourself in detail.
