Access Management & Control

How can people have freedom to come and go without compromising the security of an area? Access management and control answers this question by letting you determine who can enter and exit an area, and what level of access they will have inside.

Advanced access control systems like keypad alarm systems and biometric readers bring many advantages over traditional locks and keys. These newer systems allow a manager to lock and unlock doors automatically, for example, and to track and document which individuals went where, and when. That information is highly valuable if the need arises to review and investigate a security incident.

Access control systems (ACS) can be integrated into a comprehensive security plan that involves aspects of physical layout like heating and cooling systems, electronic locks, closed circuit television, and security surveillance.

While access control and management provide peace of mind to homeowners, due to their sophistication, these systems are more often used in government installations and high-profile commercial targets such as banks, hotels and some apartment complexes. Laboratory and testing areas that store sensitive items like radioactive materials and other top-secret devices use access control systems, including remote access control and thumb print readers. Businesses that work with sensitive government contracts also generally are required to have these systems in place.

Gteknologies offers state-of-the-art access control systems and components including turnstiles, keypad alarm systems, biometrics, and card access. Which system you choose depends on what the purpose will be.


turnstilesTurnstiles are a basic form of access management and control. A turnstile is a type of gate that permits one person to pass through at a time. The purpose may be to direct the flow of people traffic in a certain way, or to restrict access to those who meet certain criteria, such as credentialed pass holders.

Keypad Access

keypad-accessA keypad alarm system is a basic alarm system with a low-voltage circuit that involves sensors on doors and windows. When a window or door is opened, the electricity through the sensor is interrupted and the alarm will sound if activated unless a code is typed into the security keypad. Some of these alarms also use motion sensors and are triggered when motion is detected inside an area. Click here to learn more about keypad access.


BiometricsThe term “biometrics” comes from the Greek words “bios” meaning life and “metron” meaning measurement. Biometrics is the science of confirming a person’s identity through the analysis of that individual’s unique physical or behavioral traits. Click here to learn more about biometric access.

Card Access

card-access-control-system-732915Card access relies on keycards, normally flat and rectangular-shaped pieces of plastic, that are presented to a card reader. Access control card readers are used in physical security systems to read a credential that allows access through controlled points, often a locked door. Access control readers offered by Gteknologies are classified by functions they are able to perform and by identification technology. Types include a magnetic stripe, bar code, smart card, and proximity cards. Click here to learn more about card-access.
