The urbanizations have become small urban centers where you can practice sports, go for a walk, chat with your neighbors and even shop. Many people share the same space around the home that provides them with well-being and security.
However, it is not always easy to guarantee this last aspect, which is why more and more urbanizations are opting for access control systems, which we will talk about in this article.
All these endowments require a good number of keys to access each of the community facilities, a circumstance that can be annoying and not very useful, making it difficult to manage our key rings.
Due to this need, the locksmith sector has applied the latest technology to concentrate all access keys in a single device with two very different types of system but that fulfill the same function: electronic access keys and master key systems.
Electronic access controls
The electronic system is very simple and provides a high level of security. Each key is assigned to an owner, who is registered in a database. This is the first security barrier, which will allow you to deactivate the key when its owner reports the loss, to know the key that has opened a certain access and to control the number of copies of the key.
On the other hand, Door Access Control System also make it possible to differentiate between permission levels. It is usual that in urbanizations not all owners pay the corresponding fee to access all common areas, such as swimming pools, sports courts, portals, garages or storage rooms.
With electronic access controls, each neighbor will only be able to use their key for the facilities for which they have permission.
Other systems that are also being used in exclusive homes or centers where maximum security is required are those for biometric reading and security code, which can be complemented by each other or even by adding an electronic key.
The master key system is similar to the previous one in terms of the access possibilities of each neighbor, however, it does not allow handling data, deactivating lost keys or preventing copies from being made.
The operating scheme is very simple, and it is based on a pyramidal structure. At the top, the master key is located, the one that will be able to open all the doors of the urbanization or office.
In the middle part, we find other second-level master keys, which are only valid for certain locks of the system and, finally, the simplest keys, which are only capable of opening one of the doors.
On average, 5 to 7 keys are required to open all the locks in a single community. With the proximity cards of an Access Control System, you only need a single card to access all the spaces in the community.
The same goes for master key systems, which help to noticeably reduce your key set. A trend that is becoming more and more popular in companies, urbanizations and exclusive homes.
