Access control systems (solutions) have today migrated in most cases from the old Analogue system to an IP Based system.
What is an IP System
Effectively an IP Based System is
similarly to that of a computer Networked
system (allowing different computers to
communicate with each other) which
uses an IP address to recognize the
Hardware on that particular Network
and its location.
Access control Hardware are therefore
managed on a Network connected via a
switch enabling them to allow physical
Access info Premises, Building
campuses etc with different methods.
These various Access control
Hardware systems available today for
Logging ‘’in’’ for example include:
1) Key pad system – Punching of correct sequence of number/letters
Biometric Systems: Different Modes today include eg
a) Finger Print
d)Facial Recognition Access
2) Card/Magnetic strip – Proximity cards allowing for swiping against a Reader
