In the fields of physical security and information security, access control (AC) is the selective restriction of access to a place or other resource. The act of accessing may mean consuming, entering, or using. Permission to access a resource is called authorization.
Access Control Systems are very versatile systems capable of securing different entry and exit points to particular buildings, or even restricting entry to a storage cupboard. They are essential for any company that wishes to keep track of its employees and know where and when they are entering or exiting a certain location. They provide the administrator with a log of entry and exits based on ID and can restrict entry and exit to particular individuals or groups.
