The Basics of Security Door Access Control Systems
If you have mission-critical equipment located at remote sites, protecting your network is probably very important for you. However, safeguarding your sites goes beyond protecting your network from hackers.
There’s also the physical site security to take into consideration. After all, if your equipment gets stolen that will affect your operations and bottom line as well. So, the first step is to guarantee that unauthorized people don’t gain access to your facility. And that starts with an access control solution.
Door access control is a matter of who, where, and when. An Access Control System determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. This means that it is the best type of access control you can get to guarantee the physical security of your remote sites and the security of your system equipment.
Mechanical Locks and Keys Are Not Enough
Access door systems are partially done through keys and locks. When a door is locked only someone with a key can gain entry through the door depending on how the lock is set up. Mechanical locks and keys might work well as domestic access control systems, but they are not the best fit for remote facilities because they do not limit the key holder to specific times or dates.
These types of door access control systems do not provide records of the key used on any specific door and the keys can be easily copied or transferred to an unauthorized person. When a mechanical key is lost or the key holder is no longer authorized to use the protected area, the locks must be re-keyed to maintain business security.
Secure Access Door Control Systems
The passive electronic lock access control system solves the limitations of mechanical locks and keys, retains the simplicity and convenience of mechanical locks, and can also perform access control.
With Vanma access control solution dedicated to the telecommunications industry, maintenance technicians no longer need to worry about accessing a large number of facilities during daily inspection rounds. After the Management Software is set up, technicians can access the right place at the right time with the unique electronic key, no longer need to carry large bunches of keys between sites, so that allowing technicians to focus their attention on the task at hand.
In some telecommunications towers, access is restricted to technicians authorized to work at heights. The Vanma Management Software allows security managers to assign access rights to specific areas for different technical personnel.
