Why use Electronic Access Control
Electronic Physical Access Control provides 24/7 security. This can be to protect people, valuables or information.
Designing your System
When you are designing your access control system, there are several important choices:
- Identification method
- Reader Technology & Credentials (Crystal, iCLASS, MIFARE etc.)
- Online or Stand Alone/Compact
- Communication Method
- Which doors will be controlled?
- Selecting a computer system
- Integration with other systems (Fire, Membership Software etc.)
is the only access control system you will ever need, Unlimited doors and up to 128,000 users can be added!
Our free, user-friendly software offers useful reports including absence & attendance, roll call and simple time sheets.
Unlike other systems, P4 also offers fully integrated biometric access control at a low unit cost per door.
You’ll need to identify the people you wish to allow access to. There are three main means of electronic identification:
- Secret Knowledge (Access Code or PIN)
- Token (Card, Key fob)
- Biometric (Fingerprint)
Each method (Factor) has its pros and cons. They can be used individually as ‘Single Factor Identification’ or together to get ‘Two or Three Factor Identification’ which is more secure. Using a Card and Code, for instance, would be two factor identification and improves security by eliminating some of the drawbacks of each factor.
