Improving the security system for building owners and property is one way to improve business security for business actors. Building security both inside and outside the room becomes very important for the continuity of a business. Access Control security system will greatly help to minimize a security system problem in the building / room from the possibility of other people who enter without permission of building owner or property.
In this article, we will learn the Access Control technology available to building owners and property in the continuity of business processes, then we will take a closer look at how this system can help you improve the security of buildings and property.
An Access Control security system allows building owners and property to do more than just control entry to a protected area. This system can also create electronic history or information about anyone entering a protected room. This information helps the business owner identify who comes into the room at certain times. This will certainly help the business owner to know more about who gets in at certain hours when an incident occurs, such as the case of loss assets due to theft or unwanted things are unexpected.
There are several methods of verification on the Access Control system that is suitable to use, and it is an option for those of you who want a security system like what you need in accordance with the needs and budget you have of course.
Here we will describe some of the methods of verification on Access Control systems that are generally used at this time.
1) Access Control Verification Method using Magnetic Strip Card Machine
For this type of card loads a magnetic strip containing information about the cardholder’s information. For each user this type of card is assigned a unique ID and is different from one to another. Example of this type of card may be you can see on the type of ATM card you have. Nowadays the use of card type and machine in Access Control system is rarely encountered, because to verify this card must be swiped on the machine, while the technology at this time has been replaced by the method of swipe / stick the card by using Proximity Card / Smart Card
2) Access Control Verification Method using Biometric Scanner Machine
This type of system requires the user / user to enter information using biological aspects attached to the user / user. Examples of these common and widely used types are Access Control machines that use Fingerprint / Fingerprint verification as well as Face ID / Face ID detection. In addition there are also machines that use other verifications such as retina or voice. It’s just for this type of machine still requires a fairly high investment both in terms of cost and procurement.
3) Access Control Verification Method using Proximity Card Machine / Smart card
In this system usually the user can enter a certain code on the keypad / reader to enter the room or a protected area. Keypad / Reader Electronics is not easy to tamper with, because to program a card into the system there is usually a certain code unique and different between the keypad machine with one keypad engine the other. However, it is necessary to periodically change access codes from the original access code (factory default), to prevent leakage of access code information from unauthorized and interested parties. Unlike machines that use magnetic strips, user information is contained within a microchip, so it is more likely to be susceptible to damage due to adjacent objects that have magnetic properties. In addition, the use of this type of card is just quite easy, just put it in front of the keypad / reader, no need to swipe like a machine that uses magnetic cards.
An Access Control security system has several major components. In essence, there is a computerized control center and contains records for everyone who has access rights to the building or the parts contained in the room. The control center deals with entry points throughout the building. These points can include not only doors, but also elevators, revolving doors, parking gates and other access systems. There is no fixed limit for the number of points that can be monitored in this way.
