Cloud Based Access Control Systems
Access control systems are a way to manage who has access to an area or specific resource at any given time.
Access control systems restrict access to authorized users and provide managers and business owners with a way to keep track of who enters and leaves secured areas. In an access controlled-building, authorized persons use credentials (for instance, a physical card, a digital card via a mobile device, or biometric) to make unlock requests at readers, and these readers then send information to an Access Control Unit (ACU), also known as an access control panel or a controller. The ACU then triggers the electrified door hardware to unlock, if the user is authorized.
