Which Access Control System?

There is a range of different types of access control systems to choose from, including; proximity, magnetic stripe, hands-free, biometric, smart card, key fob, token, card or keypad.

To help you select which type of access control system will work best for your business, we have compiled a list of key considerations for you.

  • Consider whether existing cards and tokens are to be integrated into a new system
  • Is high or medium security required at each entry point?
  • Is there a personal preference e.g. card, token, keypad or finger print recognition?
  • Does the environment necessitate vandal resistant equipment?
