Three Types Of Building Access Controls

Among the many technologies that automation offers, there is one that has become essential, particularly in buildings with a commercial, industrial or public vocation, that is, in buildings with a high flow of people and vehicles. We refer to building access controls.

Access controls for buildings are a solution with wide demand in the current market, even more so now that advances have allowed going from mechanical systems operated by specialized personnel, to processes of entry and exit of people and fully autonomous vehicles—also, thanks to different technologies and devices.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is worth highlighting the importance of implementation by a company focused on automation and with extensive experience. The reason? They are the only ones indicated to carry out a study, design, and installation with international standards. For the implementation of access controls for buildings, it is required to segment zones, define access groups, allowed hours, access levels, and performance measurement parameters. In other words, only a specialist is capable of offering the above with a full satisfaction guarantee, especially when it is a system also designed for safety.

Types of access controls for buildings

  • Pedestrian access control
  • Vehicle access control
  • Personal control

The first is a solution that is implemented to have control of all personnel that transit in a public or private space, to ensure the passage of authorized persons and restrict the passage of those who do not.

The second, as its name implies, are access controls for buildings to monitor the movement of resident and visitor vehicles. They are modules that have electromechanical mechanisms with the ability to integrate with security systems such as CCTVs and alarm systems.

Lastly, personnel control is that the attendance control system that allows companies to verify the time worked per employee by registering entry and exit times. It is, therefore, a product to improve productivity that makes use of devices such as fingerprint, biometric or card readers.
