This can range from a simple audio door entry system (or entryphone as sometimes referred to), for example installed in a block of flats, or a fully integrated secure access control system controlled via a computer which will restrict unauthorised entry into the building.

For example, a use that is not often considered is the use of Access Control Systems in Care Homes and domestic premises or households where outside assistance is required to gain entry. Access Control Systems today have the ability to incorporate video images, so an accurate evaluation can be made before access is granted.
