Access Control System Installation

Access control systems regulate entry to a facility or areas within it. They let the right people in and keep the wrong people out.

They prevent unauthorized access, theft, vandalism, and other security breaches by restricting entry to authorized personnel. They’re essential to any security plan for a business or organization.

Balport Lock & Safe installs state-of-the-art, easy-to-operate access control systems for homes and businesses in Orange County, CA.

Benefits of an Access Control System

  1. Enhanced security: Access control systems prevent unauthorized entry and reduce the risk of theft, vandalism, and other security breaches.
  2. Improved accountability: Access control systems can provide a detailed record of who has entered or exited a building or specific area, reducing the risk of fraudulent activities.
  3. Convenience: Access control systems allow keyless entry.
  4. Remote monitoring: You can monitor most access systems remotely, allowing for greater visibility and control over security.
  5. Remote management: You can manage some access systems from an app and let someone in with a click — or lock out someone no longer authorized to enter.

Types of Access Control Systems

  1. Keypad systems require the user to enter a PIN code on a keypad. They’re simple and inexpensive but can be vulnerable to “shoulder surfing” attacks.
  2. Card access systems use a card or a badge with a magnetic stripe or a chip. They’re more secure than keypad systems since lost or stolen cards can be quickly deactivated.
  3. Biometric systems use biometric information like fingerprints, retinal scans, or facial recognition to identify and grant access to authorized users. They’re highly secure and eliminate the need for physical keys, but they can be expensive.
  4. Proximity systems use radio frequency identification (RFID) to allow access to anyone with an authorized proximity card or fob.
  5. Mobile access systems use mobile devices to grant access. Users can unlock doors or gates from an app, eliminating the need for physical keys or cards. Mobile access systems can be convenient, but businesses should consider implementing multifactor authentication protocols to ensure security.
  6. Intercom systems allow users to communicate with visitors before granting access. They’re commonly installed in apartment buildings and gated communities and can be integrated with other access control systems for added security.
