Access control & security systems give systems to meet requirements of all access types, from simple operating systems for few doors to systems with big scale like companies or buildings projects that need integrated video, photo badges, telephone entry, bio metric, smart cards, fingerprints, face recognition, Hand geometry and many more.
In the sector of physical security & information security, this access control is the selective controls of access to a place or other resource. The act of accessing may mean entering or using. Permission to access (enter or consuming) a resource is called authorization.
When a credential is showed to a reader, the reader gives the credential information to a control panel or a highly reliable processor. The control panel processes the credential information to an access control list, grants (denies) the presented request, and gives a transaction log to a database. When access system is denied based on the access control information, the door remains locked. If there is a match the credential & the access control list, the control panel controls a relay that door turn unlocks. The control panel also ignores an open door signal to prevent an alarm. Often the reader gives feedback, such as a red LED for an access denied & a green LED for an access allowed.
There are 3 types of authenticating information are user knows (a password, PIN,) user has smart card or has a key fob and bio metric (fingerprint).
