Gate Access Control Options
When deciding on access control system installation, you’ll have many options to choose from. Various access control devices each have their advantages, which may be beneficial depending on your situation. We encourage you to consider the following questions:
- What type of gate do you have? Options may include swing gates, slide gates, or specialty gates.
- Is the access control system for a residential or commercial property? Most systems are designed to operate on a small scale or a larger one.
- How often will the gate be operating during the day? If the gate is opening frequently, it will need a heavy duty access control system.
- What is the electrical system like? You should consider where the nearest power source is and what your plan will be for power outages. Many access control systems come with battery backups, which are wonderful to have in case of emergency situations.
Telephone entry systems rely on verbal communication to allow entry. This is an easy way for building managers to monitor everyone who’s entering and leaving the property. The building’s phone systems can be looped with the system to create a “call” button.
Keypad Entry Systems
Keypad entry systems allow the user entry if the correct code is entered. This system is typically used in conjunction with telephone entry and can be controlled by the building owner. This allows them to monitor who’s entering the building and control all access points.
Card readers are typically used in commercial settings for employees to gain access to a building or property. A card reader system will recognize the permitted cards and allow entry into the building. Key card door entry systems can be used at multiple points through a building facility to keep it secure.
Cellular entry systems provide a control center for all communication within the facility. They are easier to maintain than standard phone lines and use modern technology for better access.
