Building Access Control and Security Systems
The world's view on security with regard to perimeter and building access control has changed dramatically since the tragic events of September 11. Realizing the massive damage a single act of terrorism could cause, government organizations and global corporations acknowledged an urgent need to strengthen building security systems.
Access Control Systems gives you complete access control 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 12 months of the year, regardless of whether your site consists of one building or many buildings. Not only does the system let you control door, elevator, parking lot, or garage access, but it can be setup to let you monitor building maintenance systems and integrate with closed-circuit television systems.
Responding to a Growing Need for Perimeter and Building Security
Despite the growing need, today's building security market is not integrated with a large number of small technology companies that each provides a limited number of security components or sub-systems. To navigate this fragmented industry structure, organizations often have to work with multiple vendors and piece-meal together their mission-critical security systems - a suboptimal approach to security needs.
Access control is the ability to permit or deny the use of a particular resource by a particular entity. Access control mechanisms can be used in managing physical resources, logical resources or digital resources (for example, a private text document on a computer, which only certain users should be able to read).
Item Control or Physical Key Management is an area within (and possibly integrated with) an access control system which concerns the managing of possession and location of small assets or physical (mechanical) keys.
