Access Control FAQ's
What is Access Control?
Access Control is the term related to any electronic access system as well as some mechanical systems. There are numerous systems, some of the most popular are, magnetic locks, fob systems and keypad entry systems.
Is it as secure as traditional security?
The answer would have to be a no. Some of the higher end systems are quite secure but still lag way behind mechanical locks.
Why use it if it isn’t as secure?
That would be convenience. Imagine having a door lock on the office and having a thousand keys cut.
What happens if the electric goes off?
Most systems come in two variants, fail safe and fail secure. Fail safe means that if the power supply is disrupted to the system the lock is deactivated. These systems are used on potential fire escapes and areas where security doesn’t need to be as tight. Fail secure means that if the power is disrupted the lock engages and the only way to release it is reinstate the power and use it via whatever entry method is fitted i.e. fob or keypad.
