Access control systems are used to control and classify the entry and exit of certain individuals or groups to specific points in an organization. Control points in an access control system can be turnstiles, doors, barriers, elevators, or parking entrances. The most common use of access control systems is at building entrances and doors. The control of access control systems can be manual, sensor-based, or through programming.
Failure to regularly and correctly maintain an access control system can result in unwanted individuals gaining access to restricted areas. Regular maintenance and repairs of the system will prevent any breakdowns and ensure the system operates smoothly. However, if problems occur and repairs are not carried out by a professional team, the likelihood of recurring issues is high. Vplus is a leading provider of access control systems maintenance and support services in the industry.
The following are some of the things to consider in the maintenance/repair of access control systems:
The location of protective devices, keys, fuses, and circuit breakers should be known.
The details of the grounding line should be known.
The piping plans and diagrams should be known.
The control panel should be accessible.
The system power should be cut off.
Sensor angles should be checked again after cleaning to ensure that they have not changed.
Components that may be affected by static electricity should never be touched.
In locations where access control systems are computer-controlled, alarm systems can be integrated with each other. In the event of any adverse event, entry and exit points can be automatically released.
To ensure safety, various access cards are used by companies. Access control cards that allow passage through safety-secured doors are available through access control systems. Access points are devices used to electronically "read" the access card. In addition, some organizations use "Access Control Keypads." An access control keypad requires a person trying to gain access to enter a correct numeric code.
Electric locking hardware is the equipment used to electrically lock and unlock each door controlled by the access control system. There are many types of electric locking hardware used by organizations. These types include electric locks, electromagnetic locks, electric exit devices, and others.
