Are classified under the same classifications as the door hardware in/on which they are integrated .This means that the access control systems supplied by GBM Solutions is classified according to EN1303 –cylinder for locks ,DIN EN 18252 –locking cylinder for door locks ,DIN EN 1906- door handles and door konbs and DIN EN 179 apply for the equipment that we supply .
In addition more access control products are approved under The classification DIN EN 15684 – Building hardware – Me – chatronic cylinders . This EN standard specifies requirements for performance and testing of Mechatronic Cylinders for such locks designed to be normally used in buildings .It also applies to cylinders for use with other hardware products such as exit devices ,door operators ,etc .or moitoring facilities and alarm systems.
This standard test and classify the products according to – amongst other –category of use ,durability ,mechanical key related security ,system management and attack resistance . For classification reference on the individual access control systems and components supplied by us we kindly ask you to refer the individual catalogue pages .
FROM PIN FINGERPRINT –SECURITY LEVEL OPTIONS As part of an access control system ,a reader or ID device Is used to identified an individual’s ‘’credentials’or ‘proof of Identity ‘.The device may be a keypad ,acard reader or a biometric reader .It allows the access controller to identify an individual and authorize or deny them enty into the restricted area .In order from the lowest level of security to the highest,here are the most common ID systems used for access control:
The use of a PIN code entered into a keypad alone does not offer a great amout of security because it is easy easy for someong to see the PIN being entered .As there is no way of identifying how many people know the PIN ,it is impossible to be aware in advanced of a breach of security .
A barcode system offers a slightly hinger level of security Where a barcode on a card is read by a swip reader or scanner .Although a lost or stolen card can be reported and consequently disabled ,the level of security is still relatively weak as a barcode can be easily copied .In addition ,where swipe stype readers are used ,the lifespan of the card will be limited by wear and tear .
Magnetic stripe card systems offer increased security over barcodes because it is much more difficult to copy or reproduced the information contained on the magnetic stripe . However ,the storage and reading methods used are still vulnerable to determined fraudsters and the lifespan of the card will still be limited by wear and tear.
