The quality of cable you choose directly impacts the value of your access control system. West Penn Wire gives you ready access to a wide selection of cable that streamlines installation of everything from conventional card readers to complex integrated identity ecosystems.
An access control system is an integration of hardware, software, management tools and other peripheral devices that electronically monitors and controls selective access through door, gates, elevators, and many other entry points.
Access control systems are found nearly everywhere – hotels, hospitals, airports, banks, prisons, military facilities, social clubs, residential complexes, libraries, factories, and many other places where selective access security is at a premium.
The access control systems of today are becoming more sophisticated. Beyond the common technologies for card access control, there are many other security applications that are being integrated with the access control to make them complete security systems. Some security systems being integrated are: CCTV, intrusion detection, biometric scanners, handheld remotes, HVAC, and time & attendance reporting.
West Penn Wire’s new animation video shows how a properly designed and installed fire suppression or fire alarm (FA) system in two buildings – initiating devices, SLC lines, and NAC cables – is the fastest and most effective way to avert a disaster.
