Access control system

The ACS or access control system is a set of interrelated hardware and software that are responsible for restricting and registering access of people, transport and other entities to premises and other protected areas.
This statement fully applies to the design of a structured cabling system, as part of the engineering system of the building as a whole. The SCS project should comply with design standards and standards, as well as take into account the specifics of the project, the possibility of changing the structure of the organization, the number of jobs and other aspects.

The ACS system and its role in providing complex protection of the facility

ACS can be integrated with other security measures: video surveillance systems (for example, for recognition systems, etc.), security alarms (perimeter protection, motion or glass breakage sensors, etc.), fire alarms (for example, for autosensing of controlled Blocking devices (UCP) during a fire alarm).
The main advantages of an integrated access control system are obvious:

  1. Round the clock operation. The access control system assumes that there is no “human factor”: the program and equipment of the ACS system do not get tired and work equally efficiently at any time of the day and under any circumstances.
  2. Round the clock operation. The access control system assumes that there is no “human factor”: the program and equipment of the ACS system do not get tired and work equally efficiently at any time of the day and under any circumstances.
  3. Integration with other security systems. The complex installation of various security systems (access control, video surveillance, face recognition or autonomy, OPS, etc.) contributes to the effectiveness of the security system.
  4. Multitasking. The ACS system allows you to combine several useful functions in one hardware and software complex: for example, accounting the number of passes and working time, video recording of the entry / exit points to / from the building or premises, issuing passes, etc.

Access control system (ACS) – the main features of the functional

The system provides the following options:

  • Integrated security systems (access control system can be integrated with security and fire alarm, video surveillance, etc.);
  • Division of the object into zones with different hierarchical priorities (for example, passes of different levels: client, VIP-client, employee, management, etc.)
  • Installation of access control points (access points) (turnstiles, electromagnetic locks and latches, barriers, locks, etc.)
  • Division of the territory of the enterprise into zones and delineation of access. Access to certain areas is provided by means of electronic keys, cards, fingerprints, retina, vehicle registration signs, etc. Protection of confidential information or other valuables in special control areas. Tracking the movement of guests, employees, vehicles and other objects.
  • Accounting of employees’ working hours (breaks, time of arrival and departure of employees, movement within the territory)
  • Functioning in emergency situations. Ensuring the operation of the access control system to the enterprise or to the office in emergency mode, for example, when the power supply is disconnected using the backup power system.
  • Remote access control. The possibility of remote control or control over the Internet or a local computer network.
