Access Control and egress systems allow you to prevent intrusions from people you do not need at your facility or place of business. Some egress systems give you a log of who has been in or out of your place of business and what time they passed through your door.

These egress systems can consist of motion sensors,proximity card readers, push button exit devices and a variety of locks from magnetic door locks to electronic locks with failsafe or fail secure locking rulings.

Motion sensors are designed to reliably release magnetic locks. A person approaching the door is "seen" by the motion detector just before reaching the door.

When movement is detected in the path of the motion sensor, the lock is released and the door is ready to be opened. This removes the need for a key or keypad or the act of manually unlocking a door, or having a staff member apointed this position.
