Examples of Access Control Security Systems

In the home, multiple security systems are required for different purposes depending upon the need of the family. There are several types of access control systems for the residential market, such as a fire detection system, sensing applications, burglar alarms, gas leakage control, closed TV circuits, and card access systems.

In these systems, sensors are housed at various places throughout the home that are connected by a network. The systems may be controlled or uncontrolled depending upon the nature of the purpose.
