Proximity access control system
Secured by design, Homes 2019, Version 2, March 2019, published by Secured by Design, suggested that a proximity access control system:
‘…provides electronic access through communal entrance doorsets. This is generally by use of a card or key fob issued to an occupant or person such as staff member, contractor or postal delivery service. It grants access to required areas via locked doors when the valid card or key fob is presented to a proximity reader fitted to the communal entrance doorset. Authorised access can be restricted to certain times of the day for some users.’
