Access Control typically consists of a card reader, a magnetic lock device (mag-lock) or electric strike (depending on door type or hardware application), a motion sensor or a request to exit device (REX), and the main control unit.

A card reader is an electronic device which reads a RFID card which enables entry into a building based on cardholder permission. A maglock is a unique locking device based on a simple concept; without any moving parts making it very reliable. Electric current powers the device enabling it to secure the door.

An electric strike is an alternative in some applications due to its easy installation by replacing the current strike plate. A motion sensor allows immediate egress from a facility simply based on a person’s movement without pressing or pushing any device. The mag lock or electric strike will automatically release based on movement.

Access Control – Applications

Many retail companies require an access control system because of the high employee turnover rate. Securing your retail location is paramount to your business. For example, you may want to restrict access to only certain employees during a limited time slot. You may also want to disable access to former employees per company guidelines. Another great feature is allowing access to outside service providers like weekly deliveries, maintenance, and cleaning crews. With a cloud-based system, the software allows you to add and remove users remotely and restrict access.

Access Control vs. Locks & Keys

 

A good access control system is far superior to the old-fashioned locks and keys because you will not have any keys to lose or any locks to re-key when you have an employee change. Furthermore, the motion control and card reader limit access and keep unauthorized intruders out. Access control gives you complete control over your security instead of relying on locksmiths or security personnel.

Access Control Cloud vs. Wired

 

Access Control systems are available in the cloud or the traditional wired method. Both have advantages and disadvantages. There is no right or wrong system; it depends on many factors such as how many employees you have, the number of doors you have, the people you are trying to keep out, the people who you are trying to help get in the building, and if you want remote access or not. Our security expert can recommend the right system and help you decide between cloud or wired. If you need access control installation in Seattle contact Seattle Locksmith Security today!
