While access control has traditionally been used to monitor entrances and exits, the latest technological advances for access control offer many more useful features, such as:
- Integration with video surveillance systems:
Access control systems can trigger surveillance units to begin recording as soon as someone enters the building, providing additional accountability and a visual record of entries. This helps not only with security, but also with human resources time and attendance functions.
- Integration with energy systems:
Lights and thermostats can be programmed to turn on when employees enter the building and turn off when the building is empty, reducing energy costs.
- Restricting access to equipment:
Manufacturing/industrial facilities can restrict untrained employees from accessing certain equipment, to ensure safety and maintain compliance with industry regulations.
- Biometric scans:
Retinal scans, fingerprint scans, and facial recognition technology can be used in high-risk or sensitive areas to ensure that only authorized personnel have access.
- Wireless access control:
In cases where installing cabling is cost-prohibitive or not possible, wireless access control is an option that offers strong signal quality and can be used in remote buildings.
