Access control uses an ‘identification token’ which commonly is in the form of a proximity ID card or a key fob. However the method of identification can now also be a Bluetooth device, for example a mobile phone or a watch.
This identifier is presented by an authorised person close to an adjacent reading device to release a locking mechanism or open a gate. If they are not authorised the system will simply deny them access, no locks will open or gates will remain closed.
Installing access control instead of traditional locks means that there is no need to change any locks if a key gets lost, stolen or compromised. If someone does loose their form of identifier, you can simply log into the management system, remove it from the ‘authorised list’ and issue a new identifier to that person.
Additionally, if a lost or un-authorised identifier is presented at any reader, the system can be programmed to record or alert the operator to that activity.
