Frequently asked questions
1. Define the scope of your system. Are you looking to restrict access to a certain area, such as a server room or data center? Or do you need to track employees and visitors throughout your facility? Making these determinations upfront will help you choose the right type of system for your needs.
2. Determine who will have access. Will all employees have the same level of access, or will there be different levels of clearance? What about contractors and temporary workers? Will they need to be granted access on a case-by-case basis?
3. Decide what type of technology you want to use. Do you want to use badge readers, fingerprint scanners, or magnetic locks?
Most physical access control systems will allow new employees to have access before they are authenticated. This is usually done by giving them a temporary badge or code that expires after a certain time. This gives the company time to run background checks and verify that the employee is who they say they are. Once the employee is authenticated, they will be given a permanent badge or code that will allow them access to the premises.
A keycard is a physical access control system that uses a card with an embedded microchip to allow or disallow access to a particular area. The chip contains security information that is used to authenticate the cardholder and to determine whether they are authorized to enter the premises.
RFID (radio frequency identification) is a physical access control system that uses radio waves to read and write data to RFID tags, which are similar to barcodes but can be read from distances of up to several feet away. RFID systems are often used in conjunction with keycards, as they can be used to track the movement of employees and visitors within a facility.
