Access control
An access control system can restrict and/or monitor who goes where and when, and enhances your existing security system by allowing you to know who is in your building at any particular time. The system will enhance the security of your employees, building and assets.

TruPortal

TruPortal systems are ideally suited to small to medium single or multi-site businesses. TruPortal uses an internet browser and so avoids compatibility issues with your existing IT operating systems as there is no dedicated PC or software to install. This also means that the system can be managed from smartphones or tablets. It is an intuitive, simple to use icon based system. The systems also offer integrated access control and digital video, the benefit being that you can use the access control system to operate other systems, eg set a camera to record.

Proximity

Proximity cards allow a simple means of access where the card is simply presented to the card reader, alternatively this technology lends itself to longer range hands free applications allowing a card to be kept in a pocket or bag. The cards are available in multiple formats to suit the customer needs, application and budget. Proximity cards can be multi discipline allowing use with third party applications eg cashless vending, lighting etc. With the recent introduction of Near Field Communication (NFC) readers it is now possible to use a smartphone as a security access control credential.

Proximity with verification

The level of security can be enhanced by adding one or two additional levels of technology to ensure that lost cards will not compromise your security. The additional verification will normally be something that is individual to the user ie PIN number or a biometric such as fingerprint. This is often referred to as three factor authentication, something you have (credential), know (PIN) and are (Biometric).

Biometrics

This is the most secure level of access control as it cannot be copied or stolen, in addition it cannot be lost. Biometrics use any measurable unique physiological characteristic or personal trait as the unique credential. Biometric access can be further verified by combining with an additional technology such as proximity or PIN, this can be used to provide additional security for high risk areas. Typical examples of biometric credentials are fingerprint, hand or face geometry, retinal (eye).
