Door Access Control Systems - Overview
Pertaining to the growing demand and security concerns, access control has always been vital for every organization. Main objective of the Access Control is to begin with – protect physical, IP and human assets. This requires restricting unauthorized people from reaching pre-defined areas. Moreover, the basic question of who, where and when with adequate flexibility and scalability needs to be addressed with door access control system. To meet this requirement, Matrix COSEC presents an adaptive, modular, scalable and function-rich Access Control solution. It is designed to meet access control needs of any organization irrespective of its size, locations, layouts, and timings. In addition, a range of value-added features like Anti-Passback, 2-Person rule, First-In User, Blocked Users, Door Auto Re-lock, Guard Tour, Man-Trap and Smart Card based Identification ensures Fool-proof security of physical assets and safety of manpower.
- Control Access based on User, Zone and Time
- Palm Vein and Multispectral Biometric Fingerprint Access Control
- Secure Sensitive Areas with Advanced Access Control Features
- IP based Architecture to Enhance Reliability and Scalability
- Centralized Monitoring and Control of Multiple Devices and Locations
- Get Real-time Notification on Exceptions
- Integrate Fire Alarm and other Devices for better Safety and Security
User, Zone and Time based Access Control
There are instances where in an unauthorized person punches for access. Fingerprint Access Control is the most widely used solution across corporates to restrict unauthorized access. To restrict unauthorized access, Access Zone is a predefined physical area for which specific access policies are required. Matrix COSEC controls who(user) goes where (access zone) and when(time) for each Access Zone. Using this feature, employee of one department can be restricted from entering another department. Similarly, time based access policies can be assigned to a zone.
Higher Scalability and Reliability
With the growing demand of avoiding security threats and need for centralized control, comes the requirement of implementing reliable and highly scalable access control system. Matrix provides rich, web based functionality that one can access from anywhere. Matrix Access Control system caters the need of all types of organizations, irrespective of their size. It is an IP based architecture with less wiring and supports up to 65,000 devices and one million users.
Advanced Access Control Features for Sensitive Areas
For today’s critical infrastructure sites, advanced access control solutions are becoming increasingly valuable. Matrix provides high-end advanced biometric door access control system features such as First-In User, 2-Person Rule, Dead-man Zone, Anti-Passback, Man-Trap that yields additional security for sensitive zones.
Instant Notifications on Exceptions
SMS and Email notifications on any access policy violation and advanced access control features help in taking proactive action before an incident occurs. To have a proper track of access control system, admin or security requires notifications. Matrix COSEC facilitates with SMS and E-mail notifications for attendance, leave and access related events.
Integration with Fire Alarm and Video Surveillance
Matrix Access Control solution is explicitly built on an open platform that can be easily integrated with any third-party hardware such as Fire Alarm and Video Surveillance. It becomes critical during an untoward incident like sudden fire, where everyone has to be safely evacuated from the premises. Integration of Fire Alarm and Video Surveillance enables the fire alarm to generate a trigger in case of any mishap. This trigger will immediately open all the doors and start recording the event. Similarly, it provides reliably secure integration with Turnstile, Boom Barrier, Tripod and other such access gates. Hence, Matrix provides tighter integration for value-added functions and enhanced security.
