Access Control has taken on a whole new meaning with the merging of IoT and Artificial Intelligence. Today’s urban communities have no physical boundaries; people can access airport gates with just their biometric metadata. Access Cards play increasing smaller roles till their demise altogether. Physical locks will stay in the foreseeable future but the way to manage access will move from simple cards and tags to biometrics. Our control systems are functional today but ready for the future.
What is access control system?
The concept of access control system
The term access control (AC) refers to the system of selective restriction of access to certain information or place, to put it simply, it is what allows premises to choose who is authorized to enter when they are permitted entry, and even which zones they are allowed to visit. Dependent on the number of authorized persons, and the number of zones, there are a wide variety of options available to suit any set of security requirements.
In general, an access control system is a set of devices that consists of RFID readers, EM (i.e. electromagnetic) locks, a controller, and management software. Its purpose is to limit access to people who are authorized to enter an organization. It uses RFID readers that detect the unique identification numbers provided by the authenticated credentials. A credential could be an RFID card or RFID tag, a password, or their biometrics (i.e. face or fingerprint), and the authenticated credentials are used to identify if they are the right person to access the premises.
Besides that, an access control system also includes access control management software that determines who can enter, when and what door they can use thereby giving a complete protection ensuring security with the system. Overall, the principle is – The controller releases the particular EM lock only when the right ID number is detected.
