Access Control System Toronto

Access Control

Access control systems allow for controlled access to certain points by utilizing keytags or key cards. A card access control system allows the building owner or manager to track the movement of people throughout the building.

With business access control and an access system, employers can monitor and restrict the movement of employees and clients within their organization. This is done by creating entry barriers for some and giving temporary or full access to others. Key tags, card access tools and other types of security technology are often used in an access system to provide access control as needed.

An entire access control system in Toronto can be simply controlled through computer-based software that is remotely accessible and fully integrated with an alarm system. The data can be stored for weeks.

Access control often utilizes proximity cards and card readers instead of the traditional locks and keys. An access control system using proximity key tags allows for electronic tracking and more efficient access. Access control can also include physical barriers, such as those you see in subways.

Physical barriers prevent access to restricted areas through the use of security guards, a ticket collection person, doorman, turnstiles, and fences. They often incorporate more than one of each, even including the use of key cards. In combination with proximity access, physical barriers can create the ultimate access control toronto system and are very effective in controlling movement in a certain areas and in allowing those who are authorized to have access without facing much hassle.

Business Access Control Toronto – Proximity Cards & Card Readers

Proximity cards allow entrance to restricted areas through a contactless wave of their key tag over a proximity business access card reader as opposed to sliding a key card through a card reader. Proximity cards are a form of access control designed as a more modern take on the traditional key and key tag or lock. By installing a proximity card, system users are able to replace any keys with one small plastic proximity card that is approximately the size of a credit card. This allows access to only certain people. Proximity cards have become popular for many residential and commercial buildings with key tags common to entrances as a means to provide added security. All of SafeTech’s Key Tags and proximity cards can be linked up with SafeTech’s alarm systems.
