Access Control & Biometric System

Access control is the process by which users are identified and granted certain privileges to information, systems, or resources. Understanding the basics of access control is fundamental to understanding how to manage proper disclosure of information.

Access control devices properly identify people, and verify their identity through an authentication process so they can be held accountable for their actions. Good access control systems record and timestamp all communications and transactions so that access to systems and information can be audited at later dates.

Reputable access control systems all provide authentication, authorization, and administration. Authentication is a process in which users are challenged for identity credentials so that it is possible to verify that they are who they say they are. Once a user has been authenticated, authorization determines what resources a user is allowed to access. A user can be authenticated to a network domain, but only be authorized to access one system or file within that domain. Administration refers to the ability to add, delete, and modify user accounts and user account privileges.

There are different types of access control technologies that can all be used to solve enterprise access solutions. Tokens, smart cards, encrypted keys, and passwords are some of the more popular access control technologies.

Biometric devices authenticate users to access control systems through some sort of personal identifier such as a fingerprint, voiceprint, iris scan, retina scan, facial scan, or signature dynamics.

Smart Cards are plastic cards that have integrated circuits or storage receptacles embedded in them. Smart cards with integrated circuits that can execute transactions and are often referred to as “active” smart cards. The card is what the user has, and the personal identification number (PIN) is what the person knows.

Video Door Phones

Audio video door phones are essential security solution for apartments, building, residential complexes, villas and bungalows. Audio video door entry systems are can be integrated with electronic entry systems, video entry and access control systems. Outdoor panels enable access and communication between neighbors and visitors, integrating communities with society at large. Our telephones and monitors act inside the homes as centralizing elements for communication, surveillance and advanced management services.
