What is access control?

Access control is a form of security system which regulates and restricts access to certain areas within a business’s premises.

Access control can be implemented to limit access to construction sites, office buildings, rooms containing sensitive information, and physical IT assets, and more.

For example, businesses can provide staff access via the main entrance but restrict entry to certain areas such as:

  • Areas where they may be hazardous waste
  • Other potentially dangerous areas of the site such as the warehouse
  • Server rooms and other areas guarding critical business infrastructure

Additionally, access control systems can be used to:

  • Track and monitor employee time and attendance
  • Monitor productivity – excessive cigarette and toilet breaks
  • Understand where people are in the building in case of an emergency

When it comes to securing business premises, companies use electronic access control systems that rely on:

  • User credentials – employees can be given access codes for permitted areas. These codes are entered via a keypad
  • Access card readers – these come in the form of keycards or fobs. The user simply swipes the card or fob via the reader and access is granted.
  • Video – businesses can grant staff, suppliers and site visitors access via a video intercom system
  • Audio – companies can grant access to staff, site visitors and customers using a two way audio intercom system.
