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.

IP-based access control systems can be installed at a single or multiple buildings at the same location, 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, 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.
