Access Control (Industrial Report) - UK - November 2013

This report covers the UK market for access control security alarms and systems, including sales and rental income.

The access control market includes standalone equipment, audio and video entry systems as well as online equipment.

Standalone equipment includes equipment such as cylinders, locks, readers, keypads etc that are not linked to any other system.

Online equipment includes access control equipment that is linked to an internet-based network, which manages the system.

Typically, an access control system comprises a key or smart card, a reader, a remote-site controller, a network and a host.

In its simplest form, a remote-site controller will take a signal from a card reader, process the validity of the card (either internally or via communication with a host) and activate an output, such as opening a door or a turnstile. More sophisticated systems will do more than this, for example by holding a portion of the database in memory so that it can make immediate access decisions (whether or not communication is in place with the host).

The system host can be considered as the centre of the system, communicating with the remote controller, providing a real-time user interface for event tracking and administration, and collating transaction information for subsequent reports.

Access control systems are used to restrict physical access to car parks, buildings and designated areas within buildings. The same system may also monitor alarm points within the facility or around the perimeter, activate and automatically control CCTV cameras, control the local environment by monitoring conditions and interact with sub-systems such as air conditioning, internal and external lighting and fire alarms.

A credential is the tool that allows a person to gain access through a system. A credential can be a key card or smart card, a pin number or a biometric feature. This latter group may include fingerprint reading, facial recognition, voice recognition, retina, signature, facial geometry and DNA matching. To date this sector only forms a very small part of the overall access control market, with a limited number of commercial applications.
