Consider your Facility to be a fortress, with access control acting as the gatekeeper to let only those with permission pass through while keeping outsiders out. It is like having a nightclub bouncer for your building!

What precisely is access control then? To put it simply, it's a system that controls who has access to and from a building, room, or area inside a building. These days, access control systems are more than just locks and keys; it involves technological solutions. Let us examine some essential elements of access control: 

Authentication: The practice of confirming someone's identification before allowing them access is known as authentication. Consider it like presenting your ID at the entrance. Passwords, PIN codes, swipe cards, biometrics (such as fingerprints or facial recognition), and even smartphone apps can be used as authentication techniques. 

Authorization: The system determines if a user has the right to access the desired location after confirming their identification. This could depend on the time of day, the nature of the work, or a particular clearance level. 

Physical Barriers: Turnstiles, doors, gates, and other obstacles that only open when access is authorized are common examples of physical barriers used in access control. As the final line of defense, these barriers keep out unwanted visitors.

Monitoring and Logging: Access control systems log the time and date of each person's entry and departure as well as their identity. For security-related reasons, audits, and potential incident investigations, this data is essential.

Remote Access: Access control systems support remote management. This adds flexibility and simplicity by allowing you to manage access to your facility or particular regions from any location with an internet connection.
