Access Control Security – Part 2 (card swipe locks)

by | Apr 13, 2013 | A day in the life of a Locksmith, Advice & Tips

There is a bit of confusion in the Security Industry as to what access control security is, the reason for the confusion is this subsection of the Security Electronics industry is only some 30 years young. Access Control, hereafter referred to as AC was first created/started by an Australian company called DKS Security in 1980. The basis of their system was a unique “electronic key” which married up to a reader and kept control of the access by means of a computer chip/circuit board.  Since DKS there have been many successful companies copying and improving on the concept of egress/exit control electronically. Chubb Security had their Mil System alternative to DKS. Wormald Security had a Magnetic keycard that laid the framework for bigger and better electronic card systems that inevitably has come along.
There is Magnetic strip security systems that used the same technology as older credit cards, proximity cards & fob systems that use transponder technology meaning the card only has to waved near the door reader to gain entry, Pin code door locks and activators, Fingerprint door locks and readers, Palmprint Security readers, Iris and Face Recognition security devices and systems, effictively all are generically called keyless entry systems. They all have different advantages and disadvantages depending on the number of users (keyholders) and readers which is needed to lock or unlock a particular door. Recently Bluetooth door locking was introduced, where you could use your smartphone to lock and unlock a door.
By far the newest and most exciting advance in AC has seen the introduction of “wireless door locks”, these new locks don’t need to be connect to a PC or Security panel to maintain the integrity of the system and because they don’t need wiring the installation cost has come down immensely. These “standalone” card locking devices mean you can lock or unlock doors at various times at almost any location, in fact it is now possible to have a padlock fitted to a door or gate that will only open to specific users at programmed times and also keeps track of who opened the padlock at a particular time. The application for this sort of “chipped security” has untold possibilities, from vending machines to machinery keyswitches to multisite multidimensional security systems all using a high-tech security card that cannot be duplicated or copied.
Whilst just about anyone with electronic experience can theoretically install or program an access control system there are many parts that require a deeper understanding to deliver a premium solution to door control security. We are well versed to deliver such as we have a thorough understanding of traditional master key systems and the logical extension which is access control. I have seen numerous access control systems installed with substandard components two examples being door closers and door locks. We have also intimate knowledge of the duplication of mechanical keys and electronic keys and with the proliferation of “cloning equipment” coming via the internet it is critical to ensure that any access control system installed is protected from this very real danger. Imagine spending tens of thousands of dollars only to find the electronic keys can be copied, and invariably this is often discovered after a theft or breach has been detected.

I would HIGHLY recommend KGB Security. We have used them twice (so far) and... BOTH times have been a pleasure. They are extremely helpful, very professional and went above and beyond to ensure our matters were dealt with promptly. They are super friendly, easy to talk to and easily talk through steps over the phone. Their expertise was greatly appreciated!read more

Called KGB security about my heavy timber pivot door, to install a door damper... to stop it from slamming. Kel asked me to send photos of the door mechanism. He called back shortly thereafter to advise me that we have a door damper already, so no need to waste money for one. He taught me how to adjust the damper - 'tramsom closer'. It worked! My door doesn't slam any more. It only took me a few minutes and a screwdriver. He saved me lots of money. They are the most ethical and professional locksmith. I'm very grateful.read more

I cannot speak highly enough about this company!I have an old fireproof... cabinet that I was concerned about and gave KGB a call for some professional advice.Not only did I get information on the issue at hand, but I even got the contact number for someone that worked at the now long deceased company who could give me more detailed information.I would recommend them for anything to do with safes, cabinets or anything to do with security!read more
