RFID is commonly used in Access Control Systems using radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to allow the transfer data to identify people and objects without making physical contact.
Access control technically includes the time-honored mechanical lock and key, but when people talk about access control in the modern security industry they mean sophisticated electronic turnstiles, gates, wireless locks and other barriers increasingly incorporating aspects of IT and physical security.
Modern RFID access-control systems also offer flexible access rights. For example: while all staff can generally gain access through a building’s main entrance, access to certain internal areas may be restricted to those with relevant authority. Access can also be restricted to specific time periods.
Identis provides Passive RFID Access control systems which includes Readers, Cards and Software.
