How Access Control Systems Work: The Technology Behind Keeping Your Property Safe

When it comes to access control systems, a lot of people don't know how they work. In this blog post, we are going to break down the technology behind access control systems and show you how they keep your property safe. Access control systems come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one common goal: to restrict access to authorized personnel only.

There are two main types of access control systems: physical access control systems and logical access control systems. Physical access control systems use physical barriers to restrict access, while logical access control systems use software to restrict access. The most common type of access control system is the card-based system, which uses an ID card or a key fob with an embedded RFID tag.

When an authorized user approaches the access point, the card or key fob is read by an RFID reader. The reader then sends a signal to the access control panel, which verifies that the user is authorized to access the area. If the user is authorized, the access control panel will send a signal to release the door lock and allow entry.

Access control systems are becoming more and more sophisticated, but at their core, they are still based on these same principles. By understanding how access control systems work, you can be sure that your property is well-protected against unauthorized access.
