In order to keep authorized persons safe and secure, access control systems must be utilized in securing access in and out of different parts of your business while keeping unauthorized persons out. Door entry systems range from electronic keypads used for single doors and large networked door access control systems for multiple buildings. It is a great way to simplify your facilities management because you don’t have to replace lost keys, hunt down missing or lost keys from terminated employees, or ever wonder the people who have access to different areas. When it comes to selecting the right access control system for your residence or business, you have to determine the size and purpose of door access control system installation in your area.

There are several features, components and options to consider when designing and building a security access control system. You need to keep in mind the five basic ingredients such as identifying authorized users, free egress for all users from the interior out, a locking device for securing the door, specific system requirements, and controller in managing interaction between egress devices, locking devices and entry devices. For all locking and Door Entry Systems, there must be a released of all secure locks by a physical object or a combination such as key combination, stand-alone lock or fingerprint. The example of devices are a key switch, proximity readers, biometric readers, and digital keypads, which are mounted and secured outside on a door casing (mullion mount) or on the wall near the door (gang mount).

For single doors, stand-alone locks are appropriate using an all-in-one access lock powered by replaceable batteries and unlocked by a proximity card, keypad or a combination. In business or commercial establishments, the popular option used are proximity readers because they are easy and simple to use, and if the card is lost, the card can be deactivated to unauthorized persons from using it to enter the vicinity. Keypad is a less expensive option for single doors. Among the access control systems available today, the most secure method is using a biometric system which uses the users’ physical characteristics such as handprints, fingerprints or even retinal scans.

The different devices used for door access control egress include emergency exits, motion sensors, push-to-exit buttons, push bars, and delayed egress. Motion sensors are used to detect a person or vehicle approaching an unlock door or exit. The different types of door access control locking devices are electric deadbolt, electromagnetic lock, magnetic shear lock, electric strike, and electrified lockset.
