Wireless access control for people, what is it?
People access control manages and secures 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 practical and easy for people to use. The Bluetooth Low Energy and active RFID communication technologies used require no contact between badge and reader. The detection distance can be set, enabling doors to be opened when the authorized person enters the detection zone, thus facilitating movement.
How does wireless access control for people actually work?
Blueooth low-energy technology is an open, non-proprietary communication protocol, making it easy to integrate into existing IT networks. In fact, most wifi access points on the market can act as Bluetooth gateways, scanning and collecting data from nearby BLE beacons.
Each person is equipped with a Bluetooth beacon transmitting at regular intervals. When a person enters the detection field of the wifi router, the unique identification number assigned to his or her badge is transmitted via the IT network to the company’s servers/cloud. This makes it possible to grant or restrict access to secure areas according to user profiles.
What’s more, as ELA Innovation’s Bluetooth beacons are equipped with an NFC chip, they can also be read directly by access control equipment on the market (turnstiles, gantries, etc.).
“It is a security and it reassures the families and the agents”
