Elevator or floor access controls are systems that control access to specific floors or areas within a building or facility. These systems typically involve using physical access management credentials, such as key cards, biometric data, or passwords, in combination with other security measures, such as security cameras and guards, to help protect against unauthorized access.
There are several different types of elevator or floor access control systems, including:
- Keycard-based systems: In these systems, individuals are issued key cards or key fobs that contain a unique identifier used to unlock elevators or access specific floors.
- Biometric systems: These systems use biometric data, such as fingerprints, facial recognition data, or iris recognition data, to verify an individual’s identity and grant access.
- Keypad systems: These systems require individuals to enter a password or personal identification number (PIN) to access specific floors or areas.
Elevator or floor access control systems can be used to protect a wide range of buildings and facilities, including offices, hospitals, schools, and government buildings. They are often used in conjunction with other security measures to help ensure the safety and security of the people and assets within the facility.
