Access Control


  • Are your premises secure?
  • Who comes through your door?
  • Do you require special authorization for certain areas of your factory, business or plant?
  • Need clocking data from the access control system?

Itatec has the solution.

Fingerprint readers or face scanners to allow and block entry.


Doors and Turnstiless-29Titan

You block access by using a door with electric lock or a turnstile. The obvious problem with a door is that once it is open any number of people can go through. This is solved by a turnstile, but this is a more expensive solution and also may not fit into the space available. Contact us for advice and best solutions.



It’s better than card based systems.

Biometrics makes sure that the person is identified – not just his card.

Stand alone readers can be loaded with fingerprints without connecting to a computer. Connection to the LAN is the better choice if it is in within range of the access point. This does mean that reports are available. Then the clockings can be seen instantly as they occur.


T5 PRO fingerprint and card reader

Centralized access control is where the readers are all connected to a controller which receives messages from the readers and then unlocks the specific door if that person is allowed entry. The advantage is that it can do anti-passback which is a method used to disallow more than one entry by a person before an exit has taken place.

It achieves two things. Firstly a person cannot assist another to gain entry as he will himself need to be inside and do an exit before he can enter again. Also it will disable him from registering that he is present without going in.

The disadvantage is that people can skip a clocking and find themselves on the wrong side of a locked out entrance. Nowadays with the use of biometrics, the main reason for using anti-passback falls away as the person clocking must be present.



UBIO USB enrollment reader

When large numbers of people must be enrolled, then it is best to use an enrollment reader like the UBIO, which is plugged into the USB port of a computer. The fingerprints are captured on this device and then they are uploaded to the access control reader.
