Stand-alone locks or an entire system, we do it.
Access Control – The geographical limitation of personnel into or out of a certain physical area. Typically, used by business and other commercial types of operations, access control involves the use of locks and credential readers.
Local Locksmith services and installs all types of access control systems including stand alone and cloud base versions.
Access Control Systems
In the access control industry there are basically two (2) types of systems: standalone and networked.
Standalone Access Control Systems
A standalone access control system utilizes independent locks that are not connected via wi-fi or cables. Each lock requires local programming via a keypad or an externally connected computer. Typically, these systems are less expensive per door to purchase and use.
Networked Access Control Systems
The locking mechanisms for these systems are interconnected either by a wired (Ethernet) or wireless topography. Some of these systems will use what is called a “cloud based head in” design. This means that the controlling software is located on an internet based file server.
These systems typically cost more to purchase and install with prices averaging $3,000.00 per door. If the system utilizes a head in cloud based controller, there usually is also monthly monitoring costs as well.
Cloud Based Systems
Cloud Based Access Control Defined
A cloud based access control system uses internet connectivity to allow each access point to be dynamically controlled by a local system that keeps its data on an internet file server. This type of system permits the user to access individual doors via an internet enabled device including cell phones. Using a cloud based system is preferable in some instances where supervisory personnel need 24/7 access to facility security.
Local Locksmith installs and supports cloud based access control systems. We are able to help you to select the correct system that meets your access control needs without having to spend a ton of money.
Cell Phone Enabled
What is Cell Phone Enabled Access Control?
The technology to control devices based on the closeness of a person’s cell phone is called Near Field Communication (NFC). This incredible ability can be used to control locks and in this case, access control systems.
Some access control systems both standalone and networked, allow the use of a NFC device to validate the holders right to enter a controlled space. These types of systems are starting to gain popularity due to the incredible increase of popularity of smartphones.
Local Locksmith can assist in the selection and implementation of NFC access control systems.
