Guide to access control in offices

28 January 2009

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) has published a new guide to access control in the office environment.

“The average office is not only made up of staff who will be there on a daily basis, but also visitors and other non-permanent staff who will require access to specific areas at specific times,” says BSIA Access Control Section Chairman, Mike Sussman. “Access control systems offer a versatile and cost-effective way to regulate entry to premises. The guide covers the principles and application of access control, as well as providing practical examples of its successful use in offices.

“There are many benefits that an access control system can bring to an office building. Access control has the added benefit of being expandable from, a single entrance door for employees that uses a keypad/pin facility, to a large integrated network that uses Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) smart cards and/or biometrics that only allow pre-assigned access. Also beneficial in an office is the capability of pre-assigned entry to different areas for employees, visitors or temporary staff. There are also huge potentials in terms of integrating HR and other systems such as time and attendance, ANPR, fire, intruder and CCTV.”

The guide to offices provides tailored information in relation to the installation of systems within a specific environment, ensuring readers obtain accurate information in relation to the particular application they are looking for.

The guide to access control for offices is available as a download by visiting BSRIA
