Modern gate access controls allow you to grant access to some visitors while keeping others outside your property.
In this article, we’ll discuss what access control systems are, how they work, and what types of access control systems could be a good fit for your property.
Access control systems for automated gates allow you to communicate with your visitor to identify them, or for the system to authenticate their identity.
Common access control systems can incorporate keypads, card readers, and intercoms, while more advanced systems use biometrics to identify individuals.
Installing an access control system is a simple and cost-effective way to track and remotely control who can come through your automatic gates.
If you want to increase your home or business security as effectively and efficiently as possible, it's important to consider which access control system is right for you.
Some access control systems have different methods of operation, each relying on unique technologies to verify the identity of individuals and automate the opening of gates.
If you're considering fitting an access control system, it's valuable to know how they all operate.
Each system has its advantages and disadvantages, and it's important to choose the best access control for your needs. Here is a breakdown of the most installed access control systems:
Most people are familiar with keypads; ten-digit numerical keypads mounted outside the gates. Each authorised visitor has a private number that they enter on the keypad to gain access.
When using a keypad, users input a designated code or PIN, which is checked against the database to see if the PIN is valid. If the PIN code is correct, the security system opens the gate or door.
Keypads are a popular choice for access control as they are relatively simple to install and use. They can be used in conjunction with other security measures, such as CCTV cameras, to increase the security of your premises.
However, those who have codes must be careful to keep them private or they can be used by anyone who has seen them.
Intercoms are gate access control systems that allow two-way communication between visitors at the gate and anyone who controls the gates. The call unit at the gate and the receiver unit inside the property can be wired together or connected using various wireless communication technologies.
A visitor calls from the call unit outside the gate by pressing the call button. This alerts those inside the house and they initiate communication with the call unit from their receiver unit. The receiver can be wall mounted, a desk or wireless unit or even a mobile phone or tablet using an app.
Audio intercoms allow visitors and homeowners to speak to each other while video intercoms allow the homeowners to see their visitors as well.
Proximity readers are programmed to instruct an automatic gate to open only when an authorised key fob or key card is brought close to the reader.
Cards and fobs are added to or removed from the proximity reader memory to control who has access.
Some proximity reader systems are managed on site while others can be programmed and monitored over the internet
ANPR is not vehicle detection, it's vehicle recognition. Vehicle detection is used with automatic gates but for egress rather than access control.
