ADVANTIDGE supports a variety of electronic access control systems that secure an entire facility using RFID prox and contactless smart cards. Controlled access solutions satisfy a wide range of needs whether you need to secure one door in a single building or hundreds of doors in multiple buildings across multiple campuses. A complete secure access system delivers reliability, functionality, and expandability for superior facility management and typically uses a personalized RFID ID card system.
A complete security system should provide you access control 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, regardless of whether your site consists of one building or many buildings.
Regardless of your provider, a secure access system lets you:
Modern-day systems are extremely reliable and employ proven technologies you can count on, when installed by a local professional. Our expert team is a phone call away to support your access control system with the personalization of employee credentials. This functionality is not available with all systems even though control of an ID card printer on-site is highly recommended for access ID cards. We support the daily creation of personalized technology cards for teams that are expected to issue these on the spot.
Keys vs. Cards
Regular keys are widely viewed as an immense security risk as they can be lost or stolen which poses an immediate threat to an organization until new locks can be installed. For companies of all sizes, this can be an expensive and time-consuming process. With a secure access system, each individual can be issued an ID card for accessing doors on a schedule or as part of a group. Each card can be regulated so you control access, and if a card is lost or stolen it can be canceled in seconds, rendering it useless. It’s obviously more economical and much quicker to issue a new card than to call in a locksmith to re-install new locks and issue new keys.
The prime purpose of an access control system is to regulate and monitor access at each door of a secure facility. From 24 hour access to time-zone limited access to no access, you set specific conditions that apply for each individual at every door. Allow office employees to enter via the lobby door after 8:00 a.m. using their employee ID badges; allow factory employees to enter via a side door after 7:00 a.m. only if a supervisor has arrived. Set the lobby door to automatically unlock from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. allowing visitors unrestricted access to the reception area. In the event that staff is delayed by bad weather or an emergency, all doors can remain locked until an authorized individual has arrived to unlock them.
Individuals can be assigned to specific door groups based on access needs and security levels. For example, you might assign new employees to a group with access limited to weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., while you assign senior managers to a different group with 24-hour access. You have the flexibility to program all necessary conditions to enforce security, and all door activity is recorded providing a complete audit trail, which can be quickly compiled into easy-to-read reports. Tracking the incoming and outgoing of staff is also possible using ID card software programs.
HID Seos is the Future
Within the security industry, it is widely accepted that low-frequency prox no longer provides sufficient protection to anyone using this legacy technology. HID has created a convenient, cost-effective way to transition from prox to a more secure ID card system. With HID Smart Card access control systems you can begin conveniently and gradually replacing existing readers as time and budget allow. HID triple tech smart cards systems support up to three technologies including HID Prox, iCLASS® and SEOS technologies on a single advanced credential.
In addition to physical access applications, this multi-technology offers convenience beyond the door with a robust access control solution that supports secure, private network access via one-time-password (OTP). This is compatible with new BlueTooth technologies in addition to mobile applications for door access, computer logon, remote check in and more.
Please contact us for assistance with personalized credentials with or without a secure access system at your facility. We work with security integrators all over the country in addition to large end-users who manage these systems themselves to ensure they have the confidence to be successful with their identity management solution.
