Cloud based access control
A single unified portal for managing all of your access control needs from device management to user access rights. Cloud-based systems can remove the administrative burden of multi-site, multi system management whereby users need to be enrolled on more than one system to permit access across a campus or enterprise.
Cloud-based access control similar to other cloud-based services remove the necessity to build, manage and patch physical servers on site. Not only does this reduce the initial cost but it offers additional benefits such as enhanced security for your data, timely updates for security patches and software enhancements and even remote patches for device firmware.
A number of traditional access control systems are only able to manage a fixed number of doors per server, a single additional door added to the system can be costly when you reach capacity as is managing access across a number of systems for your team. With cloud-based access control systems scalability ceases to be an issue a new door simply requires the hardware and a license.
Remote management and multi-site integration are all straightforward offering your security team a greater amount of flexibility and control over how they manage site access. Cloud based solutions do require internet access but systems are designed to work in isolation should the cloud connection be lost temporarily.
Integration with other security products is possible and offers a great deal more in terms of situational awareness, control, alarm and event management. For example, linking video with access control can offer an additional layer to your security by confirming the face of the card holder accessing your building matches that on record. With a number of vendors, integration and reuse of existing access control hardware is also possible, limiting your outlay when updating your system.
