Access and Presence Control
An access control is an automatic system thanks to which it is decided who enters a site and when they can enter.
Access controls are recognized, especially in places of public attendance, through turnstiles, gates or barriers.
But the system can also be installed on a normal door. This is the most basic way. Requires installing an electronic lock. Of course: the door, if it already exists, must be adapted.
Access control also serves as presence control. It is useful for recording working hours, organization of shifts, rest times, absences, leaves and employee vacations.
Access Control with Electronic and Mobile Key Self-Powered Without Batteries
iLOQ are electronic locks that do not require a battery or wiring to the electronic cylinder. Electronic cylinders can be used with a key (they do not require a battery in the key) and/or with a smartphone that has NFC. The system also allows the installation of padlocks from one opening system or another.
This versatility allows it to serve all types of industries, hospitals, offices, schools, residential buildings, service companies, infrastructure management, among others.
A great advantage of the electronic key compared to the traditional key is that, in the event of loss or theft of a key, it will suffice to remove that key from the system and it will not be necessary to change the cylinder(s) that opened the lost key.
The system works as an electronic access control, which allows:
- Access all doors, with a single key or smartphone, in any building in the world.
- Give and remove remote access.
- Limit entry and exit times
- Limit access doors.
As it is a system without batteries or power supplies, the maintenance of the system is less expensive than a traditional system. Its energy autonomy avoids high maintenance costs. It is also a sustainable system.
Access Control with Cards
Radio frequency (RF) card access control is the most typical of access controls. It consists of a card reader. The device recognizes the user through a physical credential.
It is very common, for example, in hotels: to access the room and so that the electricity remains active in the room. It is very widespread in companies, for the signing of job entries and exits.

Access Control with Number Plates
The design, installation and maintenance of license plate recognition systems through closed circuit television (CCTV) is a specialty of Kosmos Group.
State-of-the-art CCTV recognition systems are capable of capturing the number plates of vehicles entering the building, without the need for them to stop. In this way, circulation is fluid and traffic delays on the access roads are avoided.
The advanced technology of the equipment offers greater performance and superior reliability.
More safety, more agility, more comfort.
- Cameras with sufficient resolution to capture 2 lanes simultaneously.
- Reading and identification of license plates from several countries in real time.
- Reliability greater than 98% in reading license plates.
- Full integration with the current CCTV system is possible. All searches can be carried out through the system itself to facilitate use by security guards.
- Sending reports for vehicles parked more than X hours.
- Detection of the brand of all accessing vehicles. To facilitate the forensic search.
- Integration with the databases of public security forces. To generate alerts in case of coincidence with stolen vehicles.
Access control through the license plate is carried out using cameras, integrated software and a relay connected to the access system. Once the license plate of the vehicle has been verified, they allow the entrance or exit of an enclosure, opening the barrier or sliding or tilting door.
As each license plate is unique, it is very easy to keep track. Very useful in public car parks, private car parks, tolls or restricted areas of ports and airports.
Access Control by Biometry
Biometric access control is based on recognizing a person by some part of their body that makes them unique. We are talking about fingerprints, the iris of the eye, your face, or even your voice.
Previously, this characteristic must be registered in a database. The computer converts the fingerprint, iris or voice into complex mathematical calculations. To avoid failures and false positives, several consecutive captures are usually made.
In each access or exit, the biometric reader will do the conversion again in some calculations, this time simpler. If the pattern matches the ones you have on file, you will recognize that person.
Biometric control has very little margin for error. It is very difficult to fake a print, a face, an iris or a voice.
Fingerprint Access Control
Fingerprint access control is a specific type of biometric control. It is widely used, since, of all the body controls, it is the most economical and easy to implement.
The reader does not usually come with just the glass where the fingerprint is captured. An RF card reader and keyboard are usually added, to dial a PIN code. It is done to have alternatives, in case someone has their prints badly damaged. This does not mean that it does not work, but that, in certain cases, it costs more to do the recognition.
The glass, of course, is made to withstand millions of transfers.
Access Control with Cameras
Access control through cameras is a type of control based on artificial intelligence. The system captures the face of people who enter the field of view of any camera for the first time. The computer will remember them and follow them every time they pass in front of that camera, or another.
To allow or deny access, all you have to do is introduce the system to the people you want it to meet.
An access control with a camera has the incentive that it is possible to certify, with images, the time of entry and exit of someone in particular. All you have to do is retrieve and watch the recordings again.
It is also often used for counting people inside an enclosure, without the need for them to identify themselves in each zone.
Benefits of Access Control
Access and presence control systems display multiple advantages, among others:
- Prevent access to intruders
- They prevent fraud
- They provide valuable information
