More often automatic access control replaces the physical key, and even security guards. A card is more diverse and generally much safer than alternatives. One card can be provisioned for access to multiple areas. However, restrictions can be imposed. Access control cards can be reconfigured, so there is no need to throw away the card after usage. In addition, a lost or stolen card can be deactivated.
In addition to access control, these cards can also be used for time registration. Every employee of a company can be assigned a unique badge, which not only gives them access to the working space, but also keeps track of their working hours.
