Access Card and use in CCTV Security Camera Systems

An Access Card is approximately the size of a credit card. These are specially coded cards given to employees and allow them access to secure locations or devices at work. Access cards utilize several technologies such as magnetic strips, Barium Ferrite, proximity (active or passive), and other methods. They are often ‘swiped’ and read by a device that allows the user or employee access. The access information for the access card is actually stored at a central computer where every scan is logged and monitored. Each user on the system can have custom pre-programmed access rights depending on their assigned security level.
