Access control systems are very efficient tools for controlling who accesses what offices and under what circumstance. Access control systems work just way a doorbell intercom system works. Without effective access systems, it will be difficult tracking human traffic in a premise. Unless you want to stick with the outdated system of writing down peoples names at the entrance. Technology has made easy to automate a lot of operations. Security and gate keeping is just one of them. ORACO Kenya is an expert installer of access control system in Kenya.
Biometric access control systems Kenya have been there for a while now. It is just that technology absorption in Kenya has not been fast enough. They started with the card and pin access devices. Today, there are more intelligent system scanners that use fingerprints in addition to the card and pin authentication methods. So, if you are looking for the best access control installers in Kenya, then look no further. At ORACO Kenya, you can count on us to deliver the right access system for you.
Types of access control systems
- Biometric access control systems
This is a system that authenticates a person entering a building by use of thumbprints. By far it is the most efficient and reliable door access control system. So you ask why biometric access control is better than card or pin system. To start with, a human thumbprint is unique to that person and it is transferable. Once you have been registered in the system, there is no way you can use somebody else fingerprints to commit a crime.
Secondly, there is no way you can leave your fingerprint at home. An access control system that relies on card authentication suffer the challenge of a card left at home.
- Card access systems
Card access control system can work as time attendance system. So apart from using the card to access a building, you can use it to identify yourself to a security personnel. The only challenge with card access systems is that they are easily shareable. For example, an employee might give out his or her card to a colleague when they are late for work. The HR practitioners might not like this system since it can be used by unscrupulous employees to claim overtime payments.
- Pin access systems
Lastly, we install pin access systems. These kinds of systems are among the first technologies to be adopted at work places. This device is reliable if employees are trained not to share their PINs. Secrecy is the weakest or strongest link whichever way you look at it. Nonetheless, it can still serve the purpose if the users are trained on the importance of protecting and keeping secret their access PINs.
Why install a door access control system
The main reason why institutions install building access control is to keep away unauthorized persons. The restricted places can be the private car parking areas, server rooms, stores etc. Places where private staff files are kept also require high security.
Banking institutions are a perfect example of where access control systems have been deployed successfully. Not very bank employee has the keys or the password combinations to the strong room locks. It is only a few senior staff of the bank authorized to access such places. And their cards or the authentication method has been programmed with such rights.
The modern access control devices can also be used as time and attendance systems. Door security systems monitor when employees report to work and when they leave the offices. This is especially essential if the employees work in shifts. The setup enables you to enjoy double benefit from the installation. That is, you get time and attendance functionality as well as access control functions.
The modern technology
When it comes to authentication mechanisms, new technology does not disappoint. They have the capability to do authentication by fingerprints and still use RFID cards. If you like, you can enable pin authentication through the keypad.
You can also configure the access control device to use a combination of the above authentication options. This will help you achieve higher security levels e.g. you can combine pin and fingerprint.
With biometric access control devices, you can use the fingerprints as the unique identifier. In a more advanced setup, you can scan the retina to authenticate users. Based on our extensive experience, we are ranked among the best biometric access control system in Kenya.
