The access control systems make it possible to filter the flows of individuals inside a site, establishment, building, local, carpark, etc. i.e., all the means which constitute them allow the entrances – exits of zones to the only people having the required rights. The implementation of such a system is structuring for the establishment and its users.
At each checkpoint, the three primary functions are provided:
Identification and authentication;
- Data processing;
- Locking and unlocking
The Electronic Door Locks allows the mechanical blocking of the access point to prevent the passage of unauthorized persons. The RFID badge access control system allows unlocking according to the access rights stored in the database.
Badge access control systems take into account specific operating procedures such as degraded operation in the event of a power or mains failure, as well as the need for an automatic opening in case of fire.
The RFID badge access control system makes it possible to take into account the needs in terms of people’s flow of traffic and the needs of each person.
To complete the access control solution, it is possible to distinguish and simply manage groups of readers corresponding to areas with different levels of security within the sites to be protected. The creation of sensitivity level groups is possible to take into account the type of threat feared for each zone.
Multi-purpose badges for Access Control
Access control solutions make it possible to pool uses with a single contactless RFID badge. It is thus possible to add on the badge used for the access control, an electronic purse. With a single RFID badge, it is possible to control physical access but also payments to the restaurant, canteen, self-service or cafeteria, etc.
Develop the appropriate solution to secure access.
There are many tools for Electronic Door Locks, but to develop the right solution, there are several criteria to consider:
The budget allocated to the operation taking into account the possibilities of evolution of the installation. Indeed, a device is never static; it must be able to evolve with the internal changes in society. If buildings are rehabilitated or extensions are built, it must always be possible to fit the existing facility. It is a question of common sense, but it is too often overlooked.
The reality of life in the company. It is not necessary to add to the procedures if it is not justified and not to differentiate too many areas if the plan can be simplified. On the other hand, we must take into account the flow of people. The choice of access control systems is different depending on the number of people involved.
Practicality: The goal is not to slow down the evolution of staff from one place to another, but to always think of safety. The operation of the company must never suffer from the access control system.
Respect for the laws: there are, of course, standards including the regulations on data collected and respect for privacy.
Technical feasibility: some site configurations are more complicated than others to cut and secure.
