Suppose your building, either residential or commercial, needs to keep some areas restricted. In that case, you might want to consider a door access control system installation. This way, authorized personnel can enter certain rooms and hallways only when using a key card, a fob card, or bypassing a biometric scanner. Such a scanner grants access by analyzing a person’s facial features, fingerprints, or voice.
On top of that, this system will make a recording of every granted or denied entry allowing you to keep track of the movements on your premises. Access control system installation will keep your property safe and allow you to monitor the traffic that enters the door.

Let’s consider the differences between the different card access systems and find out how to make the right decision.
Types of Access Control Systems We Install
Generally speaking, access cards give an individual access to specific parts of the premises. This way, every individual will only get to the areas they’re authorized to enter and access documents they’re permitted. There are three types of access control systems: discretionary access control (DAC), mandatory access control (MAC), and role-based access control (RBAC).
Discretionary Access Control (DAC)
Being the least restrictive access system, DAC gives control over who has access to what into the hands of the property owner.
MAC is mostly used by law enforcement, government, or military — the organizations that value data security over flexibility. In these organizations, breach of data would result in severe consequences.
Role-based Access Control (RBAC)
RBAC restricts specific data and entry to an individual based on their job description. Instead of assigning different permissions to a particular employee, the system automatically grants access according to a person’s role in the organization..
Health and financial organizations can take advantage of RBAC in terms of compliance. Since this system enables IT personnel and executive management to make adjustments in permissions, they can easily meet the regulations and avoid sensitive data exposure.

Benefits of Access Control System for Your Property Protection
Keep track of all comings and goings
If your company is quite big, it’s nearly impossible to know everyone. The access control system ensures granted access to only authorized staff and denies entry to strangers. On top of that, a company can monitor their employees’ performance by keeping track of their arrivals and departures.
Secure sensitive data
By limiting access to the building or its certain areas, you can ensure that unauthorized personnel won’t access sensitive information and documents.
Instead of entering the premises using a key, individuals can use a card. A keycard access system makes the process significantly faster and cannot be duplicated.
No keys are required
Another downside of keys is that they’re easy to misplace and lose, which leads to jeopardizing the company’s and people’s security and safety. If an employee loses a key, the company has to replace locks and distribute new keys, which results in unwanted expenses and effort. Keycards, on the other hand, can be deactivated remotely.
