Access control is a system which enables building managers to control access to areas and resources. It is used to control the security of a facility whilst it is operational.

Using proximity card technology and computer control, the movement of personnel can be automatically controlled 24 hours a day throughout a single building or networked to control multiple buildings.

Access levels and time zones are set to allow relevant groups of users to specific areas at specific times. The transactions between the users and the portals are stored to an archive for management analysis via a report generator.

The system uses server based architecture where multiple workstations and locations can be assembled into a comprehensive system using standard Information Technology procedures to increase flexibility and reduce cost.
