WHAT IS ACCESS CONTROL?

Well of course, if you typed Access Control into your browser you probably know the answer already, but if not, read on.  Access control is a means of protecting entry and/or exit from or to secure areas by using one or more of the technologies...

... and should be approved by NACOSS naturally, to make sure that it is right for the application and compliant for insurance purposes.

AN INDEPENDENT VIEWPOINT

We have included several case studies on a separate page, HERE, showing applications within the education and commercial sector, to give you an overview of some of the systems that have been installed, showing some of the developments we have made and the scalability of our GuardPoint Pro solution.

As well as the above access control methods, turnstiles and automatic bollards. come into the category.

Of course, locks are also a form of access control, the very first kind.  Even the Ancient Egyptians had access control 4000 years ago. We now have wireless controlled locks for specialist systems.

Simple door security is used for domestic situations, often allowing the front door to an apartment complex to be opened remotely by the occupant, after verifying the visitor's credentials.

Access Control might use telephone or video entry security, CCTV, preferably with some form of alarm to warn of unauthorised access or 'door left open' situations.  Having this feature is an essential security measure to prevent someone propping open a door and allowing just anyone to wander in.

Although termed access control, the technology can be used as an egress control.  Wakefield Security devised a system for use in maternity wards, using proximity readers, where new-born babies have a special tag on their wrist, and any attempt to take them towards the exit door, renders the door locked and an alarm to sound.

We have also used a similar system in care homes where there is a danger that residents might wander out into a main road.

Computer based systems can not only allow or deny access at given times, but also record everyone entering, leaving or using unauthorised means to by-pass the system.  Such systems are often used to make sure that everyone has left an area in the event of a fire alarm.  A variation on this system is used for staff attendance management.

High security establishments often use a double door system where an outer door needs a card or code access control, or perhaps a finger-print reader or iris recognition device, but the inner door will remain locked until the outer door is shut. The space in between is only big enough for one person, and a camera in the internal space allows staff to check the identity and make sure the person is alone before the inner door is released.  Our alarm receiving centre uses such a system which guarantees that no-one except authorised visitors can gain access to the highly confidential data stored within.
