A custom-designed identification and access-control system is the perfect solution to achieve ultimate facility control. The system monitors and controls exterior facility entrances and specified entrances to interior areas. It verifies the identification of an individual, then grants access through various points of the facility. The system identifies and tracks the individual by what they possess (an I.D. card or badge), what they know (a pin number), or who they are (a fingerprint scan). Beyond access, the system can monitor the time of entrance and exit to verify the location of an individual during exact windows of time. The system can also be designed to grant access to specified areas, during specific time schedules, and for authorized individuals only.
