Access control is a system that allows Information Technology Services (ITS) to secure access to areas and resources in a given physical facility. The use of access control is important for securing confidential and/or sensitive information and equipment.
With an Access Control system in place, every employee is given a swipe card. Depending on their authorization, this card can restrict or enable access to a property, a building or a room. Access control determines:
- Who is allowed to enter or exit
- Where they can enter or exit
- When they can enter or exit
How it works:
Access Control uses computers to solve the limitations of mechanical locks and keys. With a swipe card system, when access is granted, the door is unlocked for a set period of time and the transaction is recorded. When access is refused, the door remains locked and the attempted access is recorded.

Work requests and projects will be completed on a priority basis and will be addressed by technicians during operating hours.
New installations require a site assessment of the area in order to determine the labor and equipment costs associated with the project. To book the assessment, or to have user and permissions setup and/or configurations changed call the Help Desk at 905-688-5550 extension 4357 or fill out a Help Desk ticket.
