Adding safety and security to your building is a necessary part of any business. Whether you need a simple one-door access control or a multi-door system spanning hundreds of doors, Digital Group can assist in the planning and installation for your entire access control requirements.
Installing access control systems is a way of protecting your property, your employees and your visitors. By managing and monitoring access into and from any area or building, a flexible system can ensure complete control over any site, however large or small. The technology of an access control system from Digital Group will routinely provide security tasks such as locking and unlocking doors as well as monitoring both valid and invalid attempts and allows you to appoint, change or remove entry privileges immediately. With the integration of a surveillance camera system, you’ll have remote access to view and respond to events triggered by door alarms or security breach situations.
The identity of an individual is determined by a ‘credential’, which may be a PIN code, an access card, key fob, or a unique human characteristic such as a fingerprint. In some cases, combinations of two or more of these credentials may be used to identify the person.
An access controller combined with some form of reader to identify people by their ‘credentials’ electronically controls the physical barrier. This may be a keypad, a card reader or a biometric reader. Together, the access controller and the reader provide the ability to identify an individual and authorize or deny them entry. Access controllers may either be ‘stand-alone’ or networked to a master PC-based (also known as ‘on-line’) access control system that manages the user database for all access points. The PC-based system software can update each controller with the details of each individual’s access rights. PC-based access control systems can offer many additional facilities such as user location, attendance and usage monitoring, visitor management and automatically unlocking doors during emergencies and assigned periods.
