Access control refers to the practice of selectively restricting entrance to a property, a building, or a room. It may be enforced by authorized staff. Some of these could be border patrol, security guard, bouncer or ticket checker. Access can also be controlled with a device such as a turnstile. Various methods can be used to provide credentials to gain access such as; a card or a key fob, finger print or eye reader and password.
An access control system determines who, where and when a person is allowed to enter or exit.
Electronic access control uses PC’s to enhance the use of mechanical locks and keys. The system grants access based on the credential provided. When access is granted, the door is unlocked for a short time. When entry is refused, the door remains locked. Whether entry was allowed or refused, the result is recorded. The system will also monitor the door and alarm if the door is forced open or held open for too long after being unlocked. A flashing Red LED light indicates access is denied and a Flashing green LED light shows access is granted.
