What is access control system?
A key component of data security
Access controls authenticate and authorize individuals to access the information they are allowed to see and use. Who should access your company’s data? How do you make sure those who attempt access have actually been granted that access? Under which circumstances do you deny access to a user with access privileges? To effectively protect your data, your organization’s access control policy must address these (and other) questions. What follows is a guide to the basics of access control: What it is, why it’s important, which organizations need it the most, and the challenges security professionals can face
Access control systems are the electronic systems that are designed to control through a network and they should have an access to a network. Access Control System recognizes authenticates and authorizes entry of a person to enter into the premise thereby giving complete protection ensuring security with the system.
Many access control system use network for communication purpose and information is communicated through these networks.What is access control system?
Access control system provides security by giving flexible control over who is allowed to enter your premises.
Access control system is one of the most common used system in electronic door control using a card or a magnetic stripe which can be accessed by swiping through a reader on the door. These access control systems are used for security purposes.
The areas or organizations which require high security use different types of access control systems like bio metric, RFID, door controllers and card readers etc. Each access point may be controlled individually as per the requirement of company or organizations where high security is necessary. Network security is also important, especially in a company which handles sensitive data.
By this card access control systems allows access to enter into the premises limiting people to one side of the door. In some cases, physical access control systems are integrated with electronic ones by limiting the users allowing them to utilize the resources limited on a computer system.
The Bio metric Access Control System is a time attendance control system with fingerprint access and it tracks and records data of Visitors and Employees through its Access Software.
This is widely used in confidential places for its easy installation and high security. the entry of persons. The Attendance Software can be integrated with any existing payroll software and it gives automatic record of information generated by the Attendance System and this saves time and resources in recording. It increases productivity and profitability for any organization.Fingerprint Identification
Fingerprint identification is the method of identification based on the different patterns of human fingers, which is unique among each person. It is the most popular way of acquiring details of any person and is the easiest and convenient way of identifying a person. An advantage of the fingerprint identification method is that the fingerprints pattern remains the same for a person throughout his /her life, making it an infallible method of human identification. The study of fingerprint identification is Dactyloscopy.
The proximity access control system is more confidential access control system. It ensures a safety environment and it is widely used in office, factory, bank, etc.. There are about 50 kinds of time zone settings and 5 open door groups.
The RFID tagis a microchip with an antenna in a compact package. The Tag can be attached to the object to be tracked through Radiofrequency. The Tag’s antenna picks up the signals from the RFID reader and then returns the signal usually with some additional data like the unique serial number. The RFID tags are too small so that it can be incorporated into any objects. Some Tags require battery while most of them do not need battery power and read at short distances using the electromagnetic induction. The Tag contains stored data that can be sent to several meters through the radio waves. The Tag does not need a line of sight with the reader and can be incorporated in moving objects also.
Passive Reader Active Tag or PRAT – It has a passive reader that only receives the signals from an Active Tag. The range of the system can be many feet.
Active Reader Passive Tag or ARPT – It uses an Active reader and a Passive Tag. The Active Reader transmits signals to the Passive Tag and receives the signals from the Tag.
Battery Assisted Passive Tag or BAP- It also functions like a Passive Tag, but there is the battery to power the tag to send signals to the reader.
F18 is an innovative biometric fingerprint reader for access control application. With high-performance firmware functions and compact design, it has become one of ZKTeco’s most popular devices.

We provide SDKs for customers to develop their own applications.
The facial recognition capability has reached a new height in the biometrics technology industry with a maximum of 50,000 facial templates, recognition speed of less than 0.3 sec per face, and ultimate anti-spoofing ability against almost all types of fake photos and videos attack.
ZKTeco is now presenting the uFace302 Plus Multi-Biometric T&A and A&C Terminal, which supports 3,000 palm templates, 3,000 face templates, 4,000 fingerprint templates, and 10,000 cards (optional). It is equipped with ZKTeco's latest hardware platform and algorithm like 3-in-1 contactless palm recognition (Palm Shape, Palm Print and Palm Vein), so the terminal can perform bio-authentication with the palm vein, palm print, and the shape of the palm when the sensor detects a hand presented. The terminal's touchless palm authentication method with a novel hand tracking technique allows angle tolerance as wide as +/-60° in the roll axis. With the advanced palm and face algorithm and multi-biometric verification technology, users may enjoy the terminal's enhanced anti-spoofing ability and its significantly enhanced security level.
Zk Inbio 460 4 Door Fingerprint Card Access Control System carries out the matching of fingerprints on the panel, itself. The FR Series of readers transmit fingerprint templates to InBio via RS-485 for fast and accurate matching with templates stored in a data-base. InBio controllers install easily on your network and support both TCP/IP and RS-485 communication. Auto-discovery tool allows setting and modification of network parameters directly and easily. InBio controller firmware can be upgraded in the field. InBio panels stores up to 3,000 fingerprint templates, 30,000 card users, and up to 100,000 events/transactions. InBio is backed up in real-time to an on-board SD card. Data is preserved if power is lost. InBio continues to operate if network connection is interrupted.

Security requirements of each company differ from one to the other depending on the strength of employees and type of premises. A quality attendance system can save both time and money of your company. There are various types of attendance systems but not necessary that each system will fit your company’s need. Attendance tracking system benefits both the company as well as employees. It helps the company keep track of the exact working hours of employees. On the other hand, it motivates employees to be more punctual and productive, thus benefiting their performance.
The primary reason why every company needs a digital attendance system is because of its accuracy. Earlier attendance was tracked manually that lead to errors and discrepancies. This results in an uneven paycheck. It makes the task of manager easy by providing error-free timesheet of each employee. Choosing the right attendance tracking system is crucial. Here are a few tips on how to select an attendance system.
The primary aim of attendance tracking system is to ease the process of tracking time and absenteeism of employees. There are various factors like payroll, incentives, credibility, etc. that depend on attendance and working hours of the employee. A company doesn’t need to have only one system. You can integrate more than one tracking systems to get more accuracy and ease the process. For instance, you can have a door access control system with attendance as well as an online tracking system
