Biometric Access Control
Biometric access control looks at things that are unique to each individual to either grant or deny access to a building or area of a building. This includes fingerprints, retina scans, facial recognition, and/or voice. Now, when you go to open the door, you scan your finger. The system analyzes the print and sees if it matches one in the database. If it does, then the access control opens up and lets you in. If there’s no match, then access is denied. It adds an extra layer of protection that helps control who’s allowed where..
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)
RFID technology makes use of electromagnetic waves to capture and read transmitted data; the information is electronically stored on a tag that is attached to an object or to the carrier, and that tag’s chip is activated to share its information when it’s near a reader. These tags can be detected from several feet away by the receiver, making them useful in access control for buildings with many cardholders. RFID-enabled tags are employed on a very basic level as the identification badges of the workers for any company or industry that uses access control systems.
Pin Code Access Control Systems
Keypad access control systems are simple security systems that require just a PIN code for door or gate entry with no access card or credential required. Keypad systems are generally used for access applications with low security and a limited amount of users with authorized access.
Man Trap Doors
A mantrap is an access control system that consists of a small space and two interlocking doors. One set of the doors must close before the other one can be opened so that an individual is briefly ‘trapped’ in the vestibule before clearing the second door. These vestibules can be manually operated or have automatic systems. In a manual system, a guard would need to lock and unlock the doors of the mantrap every time someone enters the room or building. For automatic mantraps, some form of identification, like a key card or security code, is needed to unlock each door.
They are used as physical safety solutions for places that need a high level of security. You will often find them at banks, research labs, post offices, airports, healthcare facilities, embassies and data centers. They are used to prevent unauthorized people from entering or control sterile environments by averting contamination.
