Cloud-based access control refers to a system in which an organization's access control is managed and controlled through the use of the internet and cloud computing technology. Instead of traditional access control systems that are installed and managed on-site, cloud-based access control systems are managed remotely and accessed through web browsers or mobile apps.
Overall, cloud-based access control systems offer a secure, flexible, and convenient way for organizations to manage their access control needs, making them a popular choice for businesses of all sizes.
Frictionless access control technology involves using biometric or proximity identification systems to ensure seamless and secure access to a facility or resource without the need for physical keys, access cards or PINs. It eliminates the need for manual authentication processes and allows individuals to gain entry without any form of physical contact, reducing the risk of spread of infectious diseases through surfaces.
Biometric authentication technology, such as facial recognition, retina or iris scan, fingerprint and palm scanning, and voice recognition, are commonly used with frictionless access control systems. Other key features include real-time tracking, remote access controls and the ability to integrate with other security systems.
Mobile-based access control technology refers to a method of granting access to a physical location or digital space using a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
This technology works by allowing the mobile device to communicate with the access control system to verify the user's credentials and grant or deny access accordingly.
Mobile-based access control technology offers several advantages over traditional key-based systems, including convenience, flexibility, scalability, and increased security. Since the virtual keys can be easily managed, revoked, shared or transferred, it reduces the risks of lost or stolen keys, unauthorized duplication or misplacement of physical keys.
