What is Access Control?
Access control is a system which enables an authority to control access to areas and resources in a given physical facility or computer-based information system. An access control system, within the field of
physical security, is generally seen as the second layer in the security of a physical structure.

 

How do I add Serial Ports to my computer?
You can easily add ports yourself by purchasing one or more USB-to-Serial Adapters.  These adapters plug into a USB port and provide a connector to plug in a serial cable.  Make sure that you install the software that came with the adapter before plugging the adapter into your computer.
 

Why use a biometric solution for access control?
Unlike cards or keys, an individual fingerprint cannot be lost or stolen.  The biometric access control system is much more secure than others because it works based upon your identity, rather than something that you have (such as keys) or something that you know (such as a PIN number).  Fingerprint-based access control solutions are also fast, convenient, and surprisingly affordable. 
  
Do I Need Professional Installation?
YES! Only a professional can provide an objective analysis of your entry/exit fixtures, making sure that your system and components will be installed correctly and function correctly.
 
What type of lock should I purchase?
You can use any type of lock that works for your physical layout, but the most common types are electric door strikes and magnetic locks.  An electric door strike is installed in the frame of the door -- when power is applied the strike releases and the door can be pulled open. A Magnetic lock consists of a very strong electromagnet attached to the door frame and a steel plate mounted to the door -- when current is applied to the magnetic lock the door is locked, and when the current is stopped the door can be pulled open.
