Some companies need to know which employees are in any given room at any given time. A properly designed card access system provides an audit trail with date, time and employee identification for all ‘door transactions’ on the premises.
In addition, many companies must provide 24-hour access to certain areas but not the entire premises. With a card access system, we can control access to each door according to the time of day as well as the needs of the employee. Once again, an audit trail is created for each ‘door transaction’ card operated access control systems have become by far the most popular form of door entry security over recent years. The premise of a card operated system is simple. The person who wishes to gain access through a card controlled door must have a valid card to pass through it. The main flexibility of a card access system is that individual users can be added into the system and deleted from it at the leisure of the system administrator. This means that lost cards, broken cards and cards of people who have left a company can be effortlessly deleted from the system. This system offers a huge jump in security than that offered by a keypad as each individual can be controlled rather than a group of people sharing a common code that can be passed onto potential intruders.
Card access systems allow many users to be controlled through a variety of doors. For example, you may wish that management have access to all card controlled doors on a site and that staff only have access to main entry and exit doors on the site. Card access gives you this flexibility.
