What are access control systems? They are systems that enable an authority to control access to an automatic electric gate in a given residence, commercial, or government facility. This is accomplished in a number of unique methods. Usually access is achieved by means of a code access on a standard keypad, phone intercom access, or through video entry programs. Also, access can be achieved through a remote transmitter from a vehicle, biometric readers, proximity readers, emergency and gate openers. Most recently, by means of Bluetooth access from a mobile device. We are Houston’s #1 access control system company.
AAS-keypads- This kind of device has a numbered keypad and operators must input a preset numbered code. The code is deciphered by the keypad that sends a signal to the driveway gate operator to open. Many of these keypads can decipher several codes for specific operators and can have “hold-open” codes which hold the gate open. This feature is advantageous for hosting parties or guests.
