Access Control Basics Everyone Should Know

Here at UTS Group, we provide high-quality access control installation to all forms of commercial, business, and professional locations. However, we understand that most people don’t have a professional grasp of the many different types and varieties of access control systems available on the market today. Here is a guide to some of the basics of access control, so that our customers and community can better understand which form of access control would suit the needs of their property best.

Why Access Control is so Important

Access control provides an immense amount of benefits like:

  • Giving you complete control over who can enter your home or building.
  • Eliminating the potential for breaking, misplacing, or losing keys.
  • Customizable key control or access control parameters.
  • Possibility of tracking who enters or exits your property.
  • Major ease of use.
  • Higher level of security than traditional mechanical lock and keys.

Some different types of access control systems include:

Bluetooth Lock Systems

These access control systems marry a keyless lock system with control through an easy application on your smartphone. Many consumers prefer using Bluetooth access control systems that allow them to conveniently unlock your locks from a distance through your smartphones. This allows you to potentially share access privileges with designated visitors like housekeepers, workers, or contractors from a distance. Using a Bluetooth lock, you can monitor the entrance and exit activity of your home even when you’re away, which provides major peace of mind.

Key Fobs

Key fobs, also called proximity fobs, are small devices that can be held in your palm, which include authentication technology that can allow you access through a building. When the proper identification information is programmed into the key fob, it sends a coded signal to the matched and connected door lock, which automatically unlocks to grant entrance.

Key Cards

Key cards appear like traditional credit cards and provide access through electronic lock secured doors. The key card is programmed with the proper code information, and the user can gain access by either swiping the card or directly tapping it against the card reader. If the key card is lost, it can easily be deactivated and replaced with a newly programmed key card blank.
