Introduction to Access Control Systems for Buildings

We have already commented many times on the advantages of access control systems. And almost always we explain its application as access control for communities of owners. On this occasion, we want to expose the advantages but of these systems oriented to another case: access control systems for buildings.

The access control systems for buildings provide security and control in all areas. As a not so positive aspect, we must say that security always brings a certain degree of discomfort. In certain environments, this discomfort is essential, for example in buildings with a lot of people. Regardless of whether these people are employees of the building itself, visitors, transporters or external services.

Facilities

This type of Security Access Control Systems in India is increasingly common in companies. You may have been in some ‘smart building’ lately, and you observed how the employees/visitors had their IDs hanging. Typically, such identifications are also RFID or similar cards. They have an internal ID used to grant/deny access to the areas controlled by the access control hardware.

Contrary to what might seem, these control systems are not exclusive to large companies. The access control is suitable for buildings of any size. Simply find the right equipment for the needs of each building. For this reason, we put special emphasis on the meetings prior to the installation to know in detail the security requirements of the client.

From a simple control of visits in the reception of your building to the most complex biometric access, we have the access control solution you need.

A real example of installation

As they say, to show a button. The best way to explain what we do and how we do it is with real examples of installation of access control systems for buildings. We have chosen a very particular case, with a very “curious” casuistry. We explain:

Door Access Control System (2)

Example of installation of access control for buildings

Where?

It is a recently renovated office building in the center of Madrid. The building consists of 6 floors of offices and 3 floors of parking. The office floors, being rental, are occupied by different companies and at different times.

How?

For our part, we have installed wired readers in the main areas of the building and in the parking cars, as well as offline knobs on the fire doors to access the garage (without the need for wiring). In addition to having a very heavy main door, a door operator is also installed. This way, employees can access the building without having to call and will only have access to the garage floor where they have their assigned place. All controlled with a server (hardware and software) specific to the manufacturer and managed by the building’s concierge.

Results

After a few months of use of Access control cards for buildings, each of the rented plants has decided to install access control systems. All have chosen to install systems of the same manufacturer to control access to their offices, private areas, and toilets. In this way, each plant also has its own management server to control access, schedules and employees.

Perhaps it would have been desirable to install a global Access Control System for the entire building as we would for example in a hospital or airport, but as we have indicated it is a client with very specific needs, in which each plant wants its own management aside from common passage areas.
