Access control allows you to monitor the movement of everyone who has access to your building, which means you control who can go where and at what time, allowing you to keep access into restricted areas limited to authorized personnel only. It also gives you a log of all movement across access points, providing your security team with valuable evidence in the event of an intrusion into a secure area.
Access control systems aim to control who has access to a building, facility, or a “for authorized persons only” area. This is typically carried out by assigning employees, executives, freelancers, and vendors to different types of groups or access levels. Everyone may be able to use their access cards to enter the main door but not to areas containing secure or privileged information.
