RFID Security Access
Control System
 Automatic identification and access control
system has become necessary to overcome the
security threats faced by many organizations. By
installing the system at the entrance will only
allow the authorized persons to enter the
organization. The system can also be installed at
various points inside the organization to track the
person’s movement and to restrict their access to
sensitive areas in the organization.
