Access Control Systems
An access control system is any device or system that is used to regulate access through authorization and restriction of rights to physical or logical assets within an organization. Today, an access control system is indispensable. It is the key pillar of security. This system performs accountability of entities, authentication, authorization identification, and access approval through login credentials such as passwords, biometric scans; physical or electronic keys or personal identification numbers (PINs). A modern and reliable access control system offers;
• More flexible working models
• Limitation of mechanical locks
• Controlled access to buildings and private areas
Types of access control systems.
• Physical control systems – these systems limit access to rooms, buildings and physical assets.
• Logical control systems – logical systems restrict access to networks, system files, and data.
Some advantages of control access systems include;

Additionally, you can you can control the movement of your staff by restricting access to certain areas of the building.
