Have you ever thought about electronic access control?
Keyless entry makes life easier for tenants trying to gain entry to their home or workers entering their offices. Electronic and biometric access control saves time and unnecessary frustration. All you need to open your door are your fingers, eyes, or mobile phone.
Keyless entry: how does access control work?
Keyless access control saves the selected biometric credential or the associated mobile phone device that is provisioned as an access credential. All you have to do is get scanned or detected by the access control system. After a successful scan, you are authorized for access and the door can be opened.
Keyless access works best with the following credentials:
- Fingerprint scan – Fingerprint scanning is the most widely used biometric access control nowadays. The system stores fingerprints that are unique to each person. A keyless entry then takes place simply by approaching the scanner.
- Iris scan – In iris scanning, the eye serves as a means of identification. A simple glance into the specialized camera leads to an iris scan. This procedure is considered safe because the iris is unique and will not change in an adult human as long as the eyes are healthy. Keyless access is particularly easy here, as you don’t need your hands.
- Venous scan – Veins are also unique to each person and have proven reliable for biometric access control. The scanner saves the venous model in the palm of the hand.
- Mobile-based credentials – Your phone can act as a credential to gain access to a door if your access control system supports it. This can also allow you to remotely unlock doors you have access to in order to let people in.
Advantages of Keyless Entry
The biggest benefit is not having to worry about the key being lost or stolen. The frustration of also rummaging in your bag is now a thing of the past with keyless entry systems. Fingers, eyes, hands, and your mobile phone are always present and the technology works reliably.
Another benefit is the increased security provided by keyless access. It is extremely difficult to log in with counterfeit biometric credentials, as scanners recognize even the smallest differences. In the case of cards or keys, it is also possible that an unauthorized individual can use someone’s credentials to gain access. Contrary to coded security systems, it is not even possible for someone to forget their code with biometric or mobile phone-based credentials.
With keyless, electronic access control you are also able to easily designate access to certain areas at specific times. For example, if you have a cleaning lady every Monday and Thursday from 10 am to 12 pm, you can give her the right to enter the front door during this time and at the same time deny other entrances, such as the garage.
With keyless access, you will return home or to your office relaxed in the future. Worrying about the key and the hassle of searching in your pocket are a thing of the past.
