Terminals are electronic identification devices that are installed at access points to protected areas. Depending on the type of the terminal, persons are identified by reading the data memorized in their ID cards, or by biometric methods (fingerprint recognition, voice recognition, etc.).
Depending on the scope of their functions, terminals can be intelligent or non-intelligent. Intelligent terminals are programmable devices that autonomously decide whether to grant or deny access to a person that has just been identified (offline operation). The configuration data are stored in their built-in memory, as well as all data acquired during operation, such as data on granted accesses and attempted unauthorized accesses.
Non-intelligent terminals are simple devices that can identify persons and control door strikes, but cannot autonomously decide whether to grant or deny access. This decision is made at a higher level – by an intelligent controller terminal, computer or operator (online operation).
