RFID Gate Access Control: The best way to secure your facility
Don’t let them in. If you are responsible for the security of a facility, you know that many potential weak spots need to be secured. One of the most important areas to secure is the entrance and exit points. There are many ways to do this, but one of the most effective and popular methods is RFID gate access control. This system uses RFID cards or tags to allow only authorized people access to the facility. It is a very effective way to keep unwanted people out and ensure that only authorized personnel can enter.
PASSIVE vs. ACTIVE RFID Gate Access Control
There are a few different types of RFID gate access control systems. The two main types are active and passive. Each type has its benefits and drawbacks. Knowing the difference between the two types is important in choosing the right system for your needs.
ACTIVE RFID SYSTEMS
Active RFID gate access control systems are used to monitor and manage the movement of people and vehicles in and out of a given read range. The system uses radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags to track the location of each tag holder in real-time. This information is then used to grant or deny access to the holders as they approach gates or other entry points.
Highly reliable. These systems contain their own power source and can transmit data over a much greater distance. This high-frequency capability makes them well-suited for applications where tag reads need to be taken at a distance, such as in-vehicle tracking.
Active RFID tags also have a much longer lifespan than their passive counterparts, making them a more cost-effective solution in the long run. In addition, the fact that they are not dependent on line-of-sight visibility means that they can be used in environments where there is metal or other interference that would block a passive tag signal.
All these factors make active RFID remote gate access control an ideal choice for many applications.
More costly to install and require more maintenance. Active RFID gate control systems must be calibrated regularly and require more batteries that power the systems must be replaced frequently. As a result, these systems are not always the best choice for all commercial security applications.
PASSIVE RFID SYSTEMS
Pros: Less obtrusive. When it comes to security, one of the most important considerations is how obtrusive the security system will be. For businesses and other public places, it is important to strike a balance between security and customer experience. Active RFID systems are typically more secure but can be intrusive and inconvenient for customers. Passive RFID gate access control systems, on the other hand, are much less obtrusive. Customers simply need to have their RFID tag scanned as they enter the premises and can continue on their way without delay. This makes for a much smoother customer experience while still maintaining a high level of security.Cons: These systems can fall victim to interference from other electronic devices, which can cause the system to malfunction. In order to prevent this from happening, it is important to take steps to reduce the amount of interference that the system experiences. A simple way to do this is by using shielded cables for the RFID reader and antennae.
Secure your facility with the latest in RFID gate access control technology
RFID gate pass systems are an ideal way to track who is coming and going from a facility. In addition, RFID gate access control systems can be used to restrict access to certain areas of a facility. For example, your business might use an RFID gate access control system to allow only authorized personnel into a commercial parking lot or gated community.
Nexlar installs and repairs RFID gate control systems for commercial and residential facilities. Our systems are powerful enough to activate without having to physically contact a reader. This is because our systems use an extremely powerful antenna that can read tags up to several feet away. Not only does this make our system more convenient for users, but it also makes it more secure.
By eliminating the need for physical contact, our system helps to prevent the spread of germs and other contaminants.
Our systems work well with all commercial parking lot gates, automatic gates, and swing slide gates. Our systems can also work with intrusion detection systems through an all-in-one cloud-based access control app called Alfred360. Through this app, you’ll get a live feed of those trying to access your premises. But it gets even better.
Alfred360 is the first of its kind. Its advanced makeup gives it the capability to automatically open and close gates, keep records of your guests, and notify you via email and messages in case there is an unidentified guest. Additionally, because this app works with our top-of-the-line video surveillance cameras that are weather-resistant, you can expect to get the highest return on your security investment.
