Many modern Access Control systems are connected to the internet, which gives the security manager the ability to manage the system, ‘onsite’ or ‘offsite’, using remote access software, web browser access, or an app for a Smart device.

Door Monitoring

Door Monitoring in Access Control Systems can be used to monitor the status of the door, such as Locked, Open, Forced, or Door Open Too Long (DOTL). Door Monitoring can provide valuable information as to what state the access control door is in, identifying vulnerable security doors or attempted security breaches.

Door monitoring can be used to alert the 24-hour monitoring station, on-site security personnel, or Emergency contacts if the door is breeched or unsecure.

System Integration

It is becoming more popular for commercial security managers to integrate their Alarm system, CCTV system and Access Control system onto one management platform.

This allows the combined Alarm/Access Control System to be managed using the same software or workstation. Hardware and software integration in Security systems has many benefits i.e. doors can be assigned to areas of the alarm inhibiting access if the system is armed.

Access Control installation integrated into CCTV & Alarm systems and can give commands to CCTV systems, commanding a camera to zoom in on a door and speed up the recording rate if a door is opened, forced or held open for longer than its pre-determined time. High level integration connects such systems at a software level.

It is now becoming increasingly popular to use the Security System as the centralised controller for the Building Management System (BMS) where other building services such as HVAC, lighting and audio can be managed from one single operating platform, using the alarm to signal services alarms such as generator fault, over temperature alarms, fire alarms, refrigeration alarms etc.
