Security Access Control Systems
Access Control refers to identification and authentication that enables access into a building or space by credentialed individuals. In modern electronic access control systems, access can be allowed or denied based on person, access point, time of day, or day of week.
An access card or ID badge is generally presented to a reader that determines if the individual permitted access. We offer a variety of access card technologies including magnetic stripe, bar code, proximity cards, and smart cards. Biometric technologies including fingerprint scan, facial recognition, iris recognition, retinal scan, voice scan, and hand geometry are also available.
Access control points can be a door, turnstile, parking gate, elevator, or any other physical barrier placed where access needs to be controlled. An electronic access control door can contain several elements including a reader, door position switch, request to exit device, and electronic locking hardware. Nationwide Security specifies and installs all types of electronic door hardware and does not rely on secondary hardware vendors, thus ensuring a seamless access door installation.
Access control systems are commonly and easily integrated with intrusion detection systems, video management systems, intercom systems, fire detection systems, and perimeter security devices such as turnstiles and gates.
