Card access systems use smart card technology to encode different levels of security clearance for individuals to enter a facility or use certain equipment. They also provide information about who was where and what they were doing.
Access systems are used by many businesses to allow employees to enter facilities and provides the first layer of protection against intruders. Many businesses also put employees’ photos on their smart cards and ask them to display their access cards as ID when they are on business property
Smart cards have the benefit of being more durable than keypad entry, which can quickly wear down after thousands of presses. In addition, businesses can take immediate action to deactivate a card that is reported lost or stolen and issue a new one to the employee.
Some businesses use smart cards to access and/or activate equipment that is segregated for purposes of security, such as computers used for high-clearance government or military contracts. Others may want to restrict access to particularly expensive equipment or equipment that requires special training to use.
