Publisher Comments:

Electronic Access Control: An Introduction describes the full range of electronic access control (EAC) devices--credentials, readers, locks, sensors, wiring, and computers, showing how they work, and how they are installed.

Karen Little explains EAC devices as they relate to:

    • Hardware (such as physical locks as well as identification credentials)
    • Controllers and computers.
    • Data management.
    • The physical environment (doors, walls, floors, etc.) in which the hardware exists.
    • Cable (wiring) distribution issues.
    • Building "life safety" issues, fire codes, and Americans with Disabilities Act requirements.

You will be better able to understand issues that can occur within EAC systems and more able to clearly discuss these issues with co-workers and managers. The book contains behind-the-scenes information, providing insight into how EAC systems are installed, maintained, and repaired. Little offers practical advice so you can talk knowledgably with outside contractors. The book also helps you collaborate with people employed in various positions throughout a facility, communicating effectively on this otherwise complex topic so that you can quickly resolve issues. The book focuses on aspects of security and information technology as they relate to your job responsibilities, and prepares you to understand and discuss issues related to computer selection, software maintenance, and data management, offering career advancement to the security professional.

  • A comprehensive introduction to all aspects of electronic access control
  • Provides information in short bursts with ample illustrations
  • Each chapter begins with outline of chapter contents and ends with a quiz
  • May be used for self-study, or as a professional reference guide
