The Basics of IP-Based Access Control

If you are unfamiliar with IP-based access control, this overview will teach you the basics along with some of the benefits of IP access control.

What is IP-based Access Control?

IP access control technology lets you have secure, network-controlled access to the physical doors in your building wherever you are located in Denver, CO.

IP-based access control systems can be installed at a single or multiple buildings at the same location in Denver, CO, or in different geographical locations. The system communicates via your network-removing the need for the control panels and 'home-run' wiring required for traditional central panel-based access control systems.

How It Differs from Traditional Central Panel-based Access Control

Traditional panel-based access control systems use a central control panel, card reader and controller at every door. This requires a significant investment in equipment and wiring, and makes the systems difficult to scale.

IP-based access control solutions leverage the network, eliminating the need for costly central panels, and use shorter wiring and cabling runs than traditional panel-based access control systems.

IP-based Access Control Uses Your Network

The network is one of an organization's most critical infrastructure investments. IP-based access control enables you to use your network, to further maximize that investment and provide a secure, scalable, easy-to-manage access control solution.

IP-based access control enables you to manage administration remotely and in real-time for each location via your network. This eliminates the need to adjust specifications at each physical location in Denver, CO, saving you time and money through more efficient management.

Benefits of IP-based Access Control

IP-based access control systems offer a broad range of benefits, such as improved security and more convenient administrative management, at a much lower cost than traditional panel-based access control systems. Benefits include:

  • Eliminate the need to physically re-key doors
  • Lower equipment costs (no costly control panel and multiple power and data cabling required)
  • Reduce installation costs (Door controller is powered by the network and requires less cabling and shorter runs)
  • Manage security and administrative maintenance requirements remotely via the network
  • Remote access removes the need to have a physical security guard at each site to grant door access
  • Add more doors to your network as needed (IP is highly scalable)
  • Manage emergencies effectively, with the ability to instantly go into lockdown, and lock and unlock all doors connected to your network remotely

IP-based access control solutions are cost-effective, easy to manage and are ideally suited to provide convenient and secure access control for a variety of environments – from educational facilities and school campuses, to government buildings, healthcare facilities, retail stores and large, multi-site corporations.
