When an organization installs an access control system, it does so basically with three purposes in mind:
The first is to take care of the physical integrity of people; that is, prevent someone from being attacked.
The second is to protect company information: databases, sensitive material, etc. Finally it is done to safeguard the assets of the company, such as electronic equipment or any other good that is salable.
Thus, different means are used to monitor and control people’s access to a facility. Decades ago lock and key systems were used; however, in addition to being vulnerable, stolen or lost keys represented additional costs for companies.
Later, the way the world worked and interacted with technology, and even the way crime attacked, changed, and access control migrated to more robust systems with electronic credentials or biometric identification to grant or deny entry to a building or property.

In this way, this investment will be avoided since, with the Access Control System, people will enter automatically and it will be registered internally.
Control the opening of doors: Open doors where they can enter without any registration have always been a problem and danger, violating the safety of the staff.
With the Access Control System, the doors work based on the people who enter, closing automatically and preventing someone else from entering.
