The different access control solutions
A large number of solutions exist today to ensure optimal access control to your business premises and home.
The connected lock
The lock is connected through the internet or Bluetooth and can therefore be controlled remotely. It allows quick and easy access. This type of lock can be installed quickly and is suitable for all doors, which can be unlocked manually or remotely. It is also possible to send temporary, recurrent or permanent access to the people of your choice. A complete history of who comes and goes is also recorded in real time.
The badge reader
The badge reader is a small device that is used to scan the badges of employees and other persons authorised to enter your premises. The badge reader can identify the person entering or leaving (name, ID number) and the time and date of each entry and exit. There are two types of badge readers:
- Magnetic stripe reader: this is the most common type of reader, which reads the magnetic stripe on the badge. This type of reader can only scan one badge at a time. This reader is used with badges called contact badges.
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) readers: These newer badge readers emit a radio signal that is picked up by the chips in the badges. This type of reader is faster and can read several badges simultaneously. This reader is used with contactless badges, also called RIFD badges.
The code Keypad
The code keypad is a device that allows you to enter a security code to gain access to a building or room. The keypad has a numeric or alphanumeric keypad.
When the correct code is entered into the keypad, the door(s) it controls will unlock. If the code is incorrect, the door(s) will not unlock. Some keypads are also equipped with an LED display that shows the time and date of entry or exit.
The badge/keypad combination
The badge reader and keypad can be combined into one device, which is called a badge/keypad combination. This type of device is often used in high-security areas, such as data centers or server rooms.
The biometric reader is a device that uses your fingerprint, iris or other physical characteristic to identify you. This type of device is also a solution often used in high security areas.
