Access control is a first-line defence against unauthorised access to a facility or property, and includes technology such as:
- proximity readers
- smart cards
- key pads
Through integrated technology, access control can provide full reporting, including movements throughout a building, and maximise energy efficiency.
Broadly speaking, electronic security covers the detection devices that monitor the integrity of a secure site. These can include:
- movement detectors
- reed switches
- smoke detectors
All can be linked to a monitoring station, with alarms, strobes or sirens.
