Door access is a critical function of all facilities, whether the purpose is security or safety the need to know who is trying to gain entry or exit from a facility is becoming more important in all businesses.
A key element of all authentication solutions is uniqueness – confirming the ID of the person attempting access or exit. Passwords are no longer considered secure – biometric authentication is now a prerequisite of many businesses. If biometric authentication is impractical due to the physical constraints/limitations or individual characteristics, then a record of the access event should be supported and recorded (for future verification when needed) with visual images.
ACTAtek offers a complete solution for access control through a combination of authentication options, software configuration/review and hardware choices to ensure continuous communication and secure operation.
