Frequently Asked Questions About RFID Access Control Systems

What is an access control system?

Access control systems fall within the more general realm of  physical security. Access control systems are computer controlled security systems used to restrict access to physical premises such as yards and buildings, as well as controlling entry and/or exit within facilities such as yards and buildings.

Access control systems are not generally seen in residential settings but widely used by business, government, and other institutions who benefit from the increased security and productivity they provide.

How do access control systems work?

Modern access control systems use a combination of software and hardware to implement the required security. Controlled access to gates, buildings, and rooms is typically achieved using keyless entry devices such RFID badge cards, key fobs, or discs/plates.

These so-called "proximity tags" have unique serial numbers (much like bar codes) which are read in wireless, contactless fashion by door lock proximity readers. This RFID number is then validated by the control computer against a local or central "white list" before entry is granted through computerized activation of a door lock mechanism.

Well designed card reader door lock and gate lock systems include centralized management software to enable system administrators to efficiently manage multiple access points and facilities remotely, without the need to physically access the badges, key fobs, and other RFID devices in circulation.

Why would I need an access control system?

As an organization grows beyond a certain size, tracking a large number of keys quickly becomes unmanageable. Lost or damaged keys, door lock barrel changes, etc. begin to take a significant toll on productivity.

Furthermore, many highly desirable features of keyless access control systems are simply not possible with traditional key based door locks: remote access management, computerized record keeping of entry and/or exit events, and easy revocation of lost keys without the need to change locks to name a few.

How is SM2-SECURE a superior solution for organizations operating a vehicle fleet?

As a fully integrated module, SM2-SECURE works seamlessly and synergistically with other modules of the SM2 Fleet Management System.

As a result, SM2-SECURE delivers benefits that are simply impossible to achieve with stand alone building entry systems:

  • Drive-by identification of vehicles and/or trailers with data capture
  • Automatic verification of vehicle preventive maintenance status prior to granting entry or exit
  • Single badge or key fob used to access doors & gates, fuel dispensers, parts stock rooms, heavy equipment, and punch in and out of work
