Access control is a security method used to verify access to a certain area or resource. There are two types of access control: physical which restricts access to buildings, floors, events, and physical assets, and logical which restricts access to computer systems, networks, and data. Physical access control can be done mechanically by using locks and keys, with the help of a person, i.e. a guard or a receptionist, or through electronic access control systems. It’s no secret, hiring someone to do this job is extremely inefficient and at times can be ineffective as well. Even locks and keys are going away these days as we move forward with information technology.
Electronic Access Control
Electronic access control systems are the most up-to-date security techniques that many innovative companies use to control access to buildings, floors, and company resources. It has been proven to be the most effective and efficient way to verify access as the authorization is being performed through login credentials, such as passwords and personal identification numbers (PIN).
Verify Access Using Barcode Scans
ID123 App provides innovative access control services to all types of institutions, making identity verification even easier by using barcode scans instead of passwords or PIN codes. Just open the app on your device and scan the barcode on your digital ID card using a barcode scanner or a barcode scanning app, such as Codereadr. Setting up your institution with a digital ID card program like ours will help you control and secure access to events, floors, buildings or resources by scanning and validating the barcode with a known database of students, employees or members.
Don’t worry about forgetting/losing your ID badge and being locked out of the building, floor or any other resource that you’d like to access. Nor do you have to worry about a replacement ID card with our digital identification systems. ID123 allows you to safely store, recover or delete any ID cards remotely, in the case of a lost or replacement device.
