What Exactly Is Access Control?

Access control, in essence, is the art of regulating and monitoring entry to specific areas or access to particular resources.

Access control systems offer convenience to employees and residents. No more fumbling for keys or worrying about lost or stolen ones. Residents and Employees can use keycards or even their smartphones to gain access, providing a hassle-free experience.
