Strong sturdy doors with good locks is a good front line defence against a break-in. However, no matter how good the lockset, how sturdy the door is, its greatest weakness lies in the way we manage the distribution and allocation of keys.
Keys are cheap and easily duplicated. There is no way to know if it was duplicated. And there is no way to prevent it from being duplicated. We also cannot track nor know who enter and what time did they enter your premises. And should we suspect an unauthorised duplication, we will have to change the lock and issue a new set of keys – which could be duplicated again.
Door Access System offers a better alternative than keys.
The authorisation to enter your office and the timing permitted for entry can be set by you. Using software that is on the cloud, or a server or the reader, you can grant or deny access easily.
An employee who leaves the firm can be denied access simply by programming the reader. With the software, you can also track who enter or leave your premises. You can also set automatic messages that can alert you when an unauthorised entry is attempted.
With the software, you can always audit and check who accessed the door.
Card access or Door access is not restricted only to cards. Many technologies are utilised to implement access control.
Besides card and PIN, other technologies can be incorporated. They include biometrics such as fingerprint, face recognition, palm vein identification and optical Iris. And QR Code, Mobile Phone Bluetooth, NFC.
As technology advance, readers are getting more sophisticated and biometric readers are no longer as expensive as they used to cost.
Card technology had evolved dramatically over the years. While there is little visible difference between the different cards, the encryption and the way it works is quite different.
Proximity cards communicate with their readers on either of 2 frequencies – 125kHz and 13.56MHz. The 125kHz cards also known as Prox or EM Card have been around for many years and is very popular and commonly held. The cards are cheaper but their data is not encrypted. These cards are easily duplicated and are not a good choice if security is crucial.
The 13.56MHz card also known as the MiFare card was created as a ticketing solution for the transport system. It was designed to enable two-way communication between readers and cards, making it more secure and harder to duplicate.
So which card is better? Or rather, which card is more secure? Please check out the video to better understand the technology.
While the EM Card is popular, the Mifare Smart Card is the preferred choice.
