Access control systems allow administrators to define who, where and when personnel have access to facilities or controlled spaces. Unlike traditional lock and key configurations, access control systems replace keys smart cards, key fobs, and passcode entry keypads; non-transferrable, bio-metric credential methods include finger print, hand geometry and optical retina scanners. Access control systems have many advantages over mechanical lock and key configurations.

Advantages of access control systems.

  • Access control systems log records of specific times, dates and identification when personnel enter or leave an access controlled door.
  • When access is granted, the door is unlocked for a predetermined amount of time. If the door is held open too long after access is granted, the system can be configured to sound an alarm.
  • System administrators can specify user specific dates and times when access is authorized.

Disadvantages of mechanical lock and key configurations.

  • Mechanical keys can easily be reproduced and given to unauthorized persons.
  • When a mechanical key is lost or one of the key holders is no longer allowed access to controlled spaces, the locks must be re-keyed and new keys produced and issued.
  • System administrators can specify user specific dates and times when access is authorized.
