From protecting government agencies to multinational corporations to mid-sized retail shops, today’s commercial access control systems—like the ones provided by Interlogix—utilize the latest technology to effectively and conveniently secure people and property.
Originally designed to focus on individuals within four walls, access control is now incorporating new ways to protect people wherever they are, as well as respond to the growing need for users to have real-time access to their systems through smart devices.
That’s why connected access control products are heading to the cloud with platforms accessible and remotely controlled through a computer web browser or mobile phone app.
The ultimate goal is to create a mobile ecosystem, complete with a cloud-based service, smartphone app and Bluetooth readers. Credentials are activated by email and the smartphone app detects the readers when nearby while the access control system authorizes or denies entry based on current access rights. Many existing readers can also be upgraded to provide Bluetooth capability.
Smartphones reduce the need for employee access cards, diminishing the cost and security concerns that go along with plastic badges. They also provide an added layer of identification when device PIN codes or biometric verification are enabled.
And, rather than use a dedicated badging station equipped with a computer, camera and card printer, a credentials module allows administrators to onboard a new employee, take their photo and issue a mobile credential to their phone – all from a tablet while being out of their office.
Many of today’s access controls systems offer a modular design. This gives business owners the opportunity to create a custom solution or start with a simple product, then cost-effectively add capacity and functionality as their needs change. The results can range from a single standalone intrusion panel to a fully networked security system spanning hundreds of locations.
And these are just the products that are available today. The future of access control will continue to bring new and innovative thinking for protecting valuable assets. As a leader in the security industry, Interlogix is constantly creating intelligent, connected access control products that can be used as best-in-class solutions or to unify comprehensive security management systems.
With some of the most-trusted product names in the industry—such as TruPortal, TruVision and UltraSync—and backed by ongoing partner services and support, Interlogix is the best choice for intrusion, video, transmission and access solutions for commercial applications.
