Installing physical access control technology at your residential or commercial location is one of the best possible ways of enforcing security and guaranteeing the safety of yourself, your tenants, and your/their property. However, installation of this crucial equipment can be technically complex – which is why we advise leaving to the hands of our professional access control installation team! Here’s a guide from the access control experts at Nonstop Locksmith on the basics of access control system installation.
Here’s a guide the majority of hardware that’s usually involved in access control systems.
This equipment contains the locally hosted database that controls the main access control system, connecting the hardware of the devices themselves to the electronic cloud, determining who can access your property based on rules and conditions that are programmed in.
This device moves information to the master controller from the card or code reader, and then locks or unlocks the door based on the commands issued from the master controller.
This device is visible from the wall, and reads keycards, key numbers, or code-inputs, which is then analyzed by the master controller to either open the door or keep it locked (if it’s the wrong code.)
These locks can be electronic crash bars, door strikes, or magnetic locks – but in rare cases can be other types of access enforcement hardware.
This equipment connects all the separate pieces of the access control device’s components to allow for the rapid transmission of information between the master controller and the reader, as well as connecting the locks themselves with electricity from the local power supply,
This technology allows the electronic access control system’s readers, locks, and controllers to function by feeding it a flow of electricity.
These devices are also called door monitors, and basically tell you whether a door is open or closed at any given time.
These switches or buttons allow you to quickly exit previously locked doors by either sensing nearby motion from the inside and unlocking or unlocking when an exit button is pushed.
To put it succinctly, here is a brief summarization of how the access control system installation process will go down:
