Secured Access

Whether you have one or multiple buildings to protect - regardless of the number of users, iMotion Security provides flexible access solutions tailored to every customer’s different requirements: multi-site, multi-company, multi-station... Access control means checking that a person has the necessary clearance to enter an area, building or room. It helps organise human traffic inside a site and selectively manage access to different zones. In this way, sensitive areas can be restricted to identified users subject to predefined times, with all movements recorded in a log. iMotion’s systems integrate every identification technology from the market's major manufacturers (HID, Indala, etc…). Our technical expertise means we can analyse the badges you use today and recommend the solution best suited to your requirements.

Managing Access

Identification means checking that a person has clearance for an area or a building. When the person shows their ID to a reader placed near the door, the system will open, or not, the door.

Identification, depending on the technology used, is represented by a card or a badge containing recorded information. It can be a key ring, remote control, biometric data or a vehicle registration number...

A very common solution for access control is badges. To enter a building, the person must show a valid badge to a reader. The badge is the system’s “key” and the reader captures the information recorded on the badge.

The different Technologies

iMotion uses all identification technologies from the simplest to the most advanced whatever the type of identification. The choice of technology for an access system depends on several criteria. Security is the most important element but ease and comfort of use are increasingly crucial.

Contact-free technologies: RFID
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. The reader sends a signal on a set frequency to a radio tag located in the read field. When the tag, also known as a marker or transponder, is “awoken” by the reader, it sends a signal back and a dialogue is established according to a predefined communication protocol. Certain tags include further memory that can write data. To communicate, the tag and the reader must be on the same frequency but, similarly to a radio, these frequencies cover a spectrum ranging from low to very high frequencies.

Low frequency - 125 KHz
The badge’s serial number is recorded in the electronic chip in the badge. The antenna (or reader) determines the reading distance between it and the badge. From 30cm, it is called hands-free technology. In the access control and identification industry, 125 kHz technology revolutionised the market by offering unrivalled value for money. Robust, without wear and tear and easy to set up, this technology has been a worldwide success and today represents the benchmark.

HF - 13,56 MHz : Mifare, Mifare+, Desfire, iCLASS®, Legic...
This was the first RFID technology to have international standards (ISO 14443-A/B and ISO 15693). It is the ideal choice when speed, security and memory capacity are required. The chip’s memory can store different information (photographs, text, etc.) for access control or other applications, for example electronic money. For access control, high frequency increases security as an encrypted number can be entered into the badge’s memory using an encoder. Biometrics are useful in this case; the fingerprint is stored in the badge.

UHF - 433 MHz, 863 to 915 MHz, 2.45 GHz
With this frequency, the badge can be read at a distance of several metres, for example at a toll gate. The serial number in the badge’s chip is still being read, but the badge has a battery that is only activated when it is in the reader’s field, thus increasing the reading distance. It is called an active badge.

Access Control Software

Centralization
Our solution allows you to centralise your access management in one unique point with the possibility of allocating autonomous authorization to other sites. With our access control software, you can allocate nominative badges to users by defining the authorized areas and also allocate access times to these badges. Then you can manage visitor and staff traffic safely and securely.


Operation
Using a password, the Access Control system consults the database to see the clearance of the identified person: validity start and end date, authorized areas, access times and dates, etc. According to this clearance, the system will authorize, or not, access to the area concerned and open the door, or not..


Software features
Create nominative badges and personalise them Allocate rights and clearance to these badges: who has access to which area and when? Archive every event in a log (access, alarm, etc.) for any later search or checks. Cross-reference, or search the logs for data according to specific criteria: date, time, access or not, etc.


Profile management
With its multi-profile management and flexible access allocation the iMotion solution adapts to your requirements and solves all your access management issues. Profile management requires creating a “badge holder” file in the software. This individual file will contain all the personal information pertaining to the badge holder. The badge holder’s individual file contains information about him or her: name, validity period, profile, etc. In the database, the administrator or the operator associates the badge holder to an identifier and allocates access clearance in the form of a profile. A profile is a group of geographical areas, times, dates, etc.
