RFID Card Fingerprint Door Access Control System
Access control is the process where by movement in and out of a building is controlled through specific doors, elevators and even gates for specific people at specific times. This is needed when the areas are of high security where extra security is required beyond intrusion detection. Example of this area are: Military installation, Oil and gas facilities, Hospital, Prison, Airport and so on even normal offices is also inclusive. Although these area may be frequent by many people, certain area within this area will still be out of bound to unauthorized person. Thus this is where the access control system play an important part. Access control system should also come with the ability to run specialized reports which show who accessed these premises and when, with date and time and even identification code (ID).
ECHIP Secure Systems provides various options in access control which may be used as standalone or integrated into the building security system. We carry and designed system from a single door to as many doors as you need to control access.
A typical access control system usually consist of a card/pin reader, Electromagnetic lock or door strike. Power supply system and a push button. To use this system, the authorized card/pin user when approach the reader will just have to use the cardkey or pin number. Once the correct data is present to the reader system, through an interface the locking / door holding devices will be de-energized and the door can be push open. From inside of building to exit the building the person will just have to press a door lock release switch and the system will release the lock. A power back-up unit will be incorporated into most access control system, this will act as standby power in the event there is a power outage. For certain safety requirement a break glass is incorporated into the system for emergency release of the door.
What happens if I am using an access control system in my premises and there is fire. Most building fire alarm system will have a door release contact that must be interface into the Access control system controller (FSB code of practice). Once the fire alarm bell sounded, the door release contact will release the access control E-M lock by cutting of the power supply to the lock, thus release the door. However if this fails a break glass similar to the Fire Break Glass install on the wall near the entrance, once broken by impact will also cut off the power supply and release the electric door.
Understanding and choosing the right accessories for your door access control system To understand when to used EM-lock and when to used dead-bolt, it’s relatively simple. If you need to swing your door both way electrical dead-bolt will be used, otherwise EM-lock will the most ideal lock to use. If your door swing inwards than you will requires an additional LZ bracket to secure the armature plate outward swing door will not require this LZ bracket as the armature plate is secure to the door directly. U channel will be used for all frameless glass door to secure the armature plate to the glass door (Armature plate is the metal plate that the electromagnet hold on to).
