Protecting people, property, and assets is still the prime universal objective for security management. Access control has long played a critical role in achieving this goal, establishing the first line of defense at facility entrances and within by requiring proper credentials to obtain access to secured areas. Largely perceived to be a second-tier technology compared to video surveillance, yet an essential physical security measure, access control systems and the use of credentials to gain privileged access are now widely accepted in the background of everyday life.
Fast forward to today…
The pandemic changed the way we all work, play, and live on every level. Controlling access to virtually every type of facility – from offices to manufacturing plants and from hospitals to schools has taken on new significance for security, health safety, and workforce management applications – all of which can be better managed with advanced access control solutions.
Sielox Pinnacle™ Access Control Platform features highly sophisticated pre-emptive intelligence – ideal for mainstream applications that do not warrant, or require, expensive and complex software overlays. In fact, Pinnacle inherently provides most, if not all the data intelligence physical security professionals require to improve security and myriad business operations with extreme accuracy, performance, and cost-efficiency.
Pinnacle includes hundreds of user-selectable filters – which are akin to patterns employed in expensive machine learning software – to provide users with real-time data on virtually every aspect of access activity and system status with real-time notifications. These filters effectively transform traditional proactive access control deployments into pre-emptive solutions by effectively identifying anomalies, suspicious activities, system failures, and other potential threats in real-time.
