When choosing an access control system, key points need to be considered before you make your final decision. Cost, of course, is a major consideration along with the type of security you need and who will be using the system to gain access. Access control systems vary a great deal in their complexity and ease of use. Some involve nothing more than entering a security code on the keypad, while others use biometrics to gain access. A system that is intuitive and easy-to-use is probably your best bet.

A few items that you should consider when choosing an access control system are

  • Future Integration with Video, Intrusion, Building Management ( HVAC ), etc.
  • Level of Identification ( Proximity, Keypad, Magnetic, Biometric )
  • Number of Monitoring Clients and Administration Clients
  • Number of Card Holders
  • Time and Attendance Requirements  ( Check In and Out Readers)
