Access control systems are nowadays part of at least seventy percent of all organizations. The system now has been regarded as the gold standard for security and attendance management. Time recordings, staff identification, time in and time out features etc can all be done using this system. The identity cards issued by the employer to the employees can be used to punch the scanning system placed at the various entrances of organizations.
Once the RFID scanner scans the code on the employee identity card, the software identifies if the user or the employee is part of the organization. Once it’s done, then the employee is granted access inside by opening the door. The employee’s presence is measured and its recorded in the software application which can be verified or cross-checked by the employer or HR professional for authenticity.
Since its inception, the bar code scanners have found its widespread adoption across the world. They have been used extensively in IT companies, government offices, hospitals, etc wherever employee attendance and security is the main object to be tackled. It has however to an extent kept away the conventional pen and paper attendance record away from the scenario.
Let’s check what are all the main components of an access control system.
Access control systems differ widely in shape and functionality. But, many card access control systems involve at least the following basic systems:
The user or employee-facing side will be entering access credentials in the form of access cards as inputs. The identity cards or badges or smartphone-based mobile credentials are often used here. Many of the advanced systems now also use retina based scanning wherein the user or employee eye is scanned.
When inputted at a card reader, it gives out a beep and if your credentials are validated, then you are permitted to access and the door opens. The user or employee-facing side is what you have on you that gets you the access.
The card reader is etched on to the wall and it electronically reads the employee credentials and directs the request to initiate the unlocking of the door as your user credentials are sent to a server. Normally the kind of cards implemented is proximity cards that require the card to be held near to the reader as contrary to being inserted. Card readers are etched outside of the perimeter near to the door those should be unlocking.
