Wireless access control for people, what is it?
People access control allows you to manage and secure access to buildings and sites by detecting employee badges in real time and without contact. A wireless access control system ensures that only authorized persons can enter secure areas.
Thanks to the use of 100% autonomous ELA Innovation badges, access control is convenient and easy to use for people. The active RFID communication technology used does not require any contact between the badge and the reader. The reader’s detection distance can be set, allowing doors to be opened when an authorized person enters the detection zone, thus making movement more fluid.
How does wireless access control for people actually work?
The wireless access control of people is based on the Active DOT RFID technology. The network infrastructure is simple to install and consists of reading equipment and Active RFID identification tags. Each person present on the site (staff, visitors, patients, etc.) is equipped with a 100% anonymous and autonomous identification badge.
When a person approaches a door, the badge is detected by the reader. If the person is authorized to enter or leave the area, the door will open automatically. If the person does not have authorization, the door will remain closed. And if the door was left open by mistake, an audible and visual alert is triggered when the unauthorized person passes through.
This identification technology combines two frequency bands:
– A low frequency (124KHz) allowing a detection at a precise and configurable distance;
– A high frequency (433MHz) allowing the transmission of secure identification data to the reading equipment.
