Access Control

The proactive management of entry through physical controls such as barriers, gates, turnstiles and doors is central to the layered approach to building security: Site, Building Perimeter, Building Area, Room.

Entry points are controlled by electric actuators, door strikes, magnetic locks, leversets and latches when a credential is presented to a card or fob reader at the portal. Status can be monitored by sensors for real time or forensic reporting on building security.

Access authorization by person, location and time are typically managed and reported on from a company network connected desktop, laptop or smartphone running access control application software.

Protec access control systems are scalable from one door to thousands across multiple locations, worldwide. They can be integrated to third party and Protec provided hardware: fire alarm, intrusion alarm, intercom and video surveillance systems and software: HR, Time & Attendance, Campus Management and Industrial Control applications.
