What is access control?

The objective of access control is to grant entry to a building, office or warehouse to those who are authorized to do so. The traditional lock and keys have been the most widespread and simplest combination of access control. However, today’s businesses require more modern access control standards, which allow them to have a higher level of granularity than mere keys.

Companies want to be able to manage the accesses and to decide who can (and who cannot) pass. These systems are able to offer access to authorized users in a simple way. At the same time, they prevent the passage of unauthorized persons.

Parts of an access control system

Instead of carrying keys from one side to the other, most companies use access cards or identity cards (the typical card with the photo and name of the user) to access the reserved areas. Workspaces, files with confidential information or doors can use access control systems. In large buildings, exterior access is the responsibility of the building. While the interior doors, access is managed by the tenant company.

If this is your first time reading about access controls, you may think that the system is made up of the cards and the reader next to the door, right? You’re wrong. The truth is that there are other parts that are working behind.
