Simply said, “access control” refers to any method of restricting or allowing entry into or out of space. A basic type of “access control system” could be a standard lock with a brass key. 

Access control systems have evolved throughout time to become increasingly sophisticated. The term “access control system” is now most commonly used to describe a computer-based, electronic card access control system. Instead of a brass key, the electronic card access control system employs a specific “access card” to grant entrance to the guarded area. Access Control Systems with an access card in Pasadena

The rising awareness and necessity to protect important resources from unwanted access and theft has resulted in rapid development. A working door access system can range from simple identity cards to multi-factor authentication and biometric iris scanners. They all essentially do the same thing: they allow you to detect and identify the person who is requesting access to certain resources.
