Physical access control is a matter of who, where, and when. An access control system determines who is allowed to enter or exit, where they are allowed to exit or enter, and when they are allowed to enter or exit. Historically, this was partially accomplished through keys and locks.
Electronic access control uses systems to solve the limitations of mechanical locks and keys, and a wide range of credentials can be used to do so. The electronic access control system grants access based on the credential presented. When access is granted, the mechanism controlling access is unlocked for a predetermined time and the transaction is recorded. When access is refused, the mechanism remains locked and the attempted access is recorded. The system can also monitor the door and alarm if the door is forced open or held open too long after being unlocked.
These systems include, card readers, RFID proximity readers and biometric controls such as fingerprint readers.
