Vehicle access is a familiar safety feature, but do we know how it works?
Every time we enter a venue with our vehicle we interact, most of the time without being fully aware of it, with a type of vehicle access system. Whether it is to enter a public car park, a fairground, our work place, our home, or a government building; our access is guaranteed and protected thanks to a technological system that allows or prevents us to pass, depending on the situation.
These types of control systems can vary in complexity, ranging from simple entry and exit systems to more sophisticated systems using advanced technology such as proximity card readers, number plate recognition cameras and automatic barriers… In any case, most vehicle access control systems operate by issuing an access pass or an approved identification card. Vehicles without valid identification are turned away and denied access to the facility or protected area. More advanced systems may include additional features, such as the ability to schedule limited access times and generate facility usage reports.
What are the benefits of vehicle access control systems?
Perhaps the greatest benefit of vehicle access control is the immediate improvement in security. By restricting access to protected areas, it reduces the possibility of theft, vandalism and damage to the property where the system is installed. In addition, vehicle access control can help prevent the entry of unauthorised persons, including criminals and other offenders.
Another important benefit of vehicle access control is increased efficiency in traffic management. By restricting access to certain areas, traffic is reduced and safety on roads and in car parks is improved. In addition, vehicle access control systems can include features such as parking reservation management and traffic management in busy areas.
This also occurs with a reduction in the number of personnel required for the in-service maintenance of these systems, as technology makes it more routine work, allowing these human resources to be reassigned to more valuable tasks.
However, access control can also present some challenges. For example, vehicle access control systems can be costly to install and maintain without the right partner. It is important, in these cases, to have the support of true experts in the field.
