A standalone Access Control System is one that is not connected to a larger network and can be set up remotely. They are perfect for small organizations that are looking to monitor the access of their employees all throughout the workday. It works through different types of readers (like a finger, card access, and pin-based) which read the data from a reader. The software installed on the PC creates and controls admission permissions, monitors time-cards, and keeps track of safety history and prior errors.
Centralized access control systems are designed to make sure that whenever most large organizations such as multinational corporations, banks, and hotels employ security measures and technology programs to monitor their employees in real-time. With a centralized access control system in place, organizations can be assured that their employees are focused on completing their daily working routines rather than thinking about ways of breaking into the office at night.
