TOP 4 FEATURES & BENEFITS OF USING ELECTROMAGNETIC LOCKS

By Highlight No Comments

Conventional locks are used to secure and limit entry or access towards certain resources. They come in all shapes and sizes. Most often, we use locks to secure our gates, our doors and even our cars. With the evolution of lock technology over the years, modern locks nowadays are more than just a simple padlock and key. Electromagnetic locks are now a modern and popular alternative for those looking to keep the building or room secure.

What are electromagnetic locks?

As the name suggests, electromagnetic locks work by using the basic principles of electromagnetism. A standard electromagnetic lock features several main components which includes an armature plate and electromagnet – which is usually a steel plate. Whenever there is electricity, the electromagnet becomes magnetized and is attracted to the armature plate which creates a locking mechanism.

Modern electromagnetic locks are able to keep doors secure and locked even under stress. In addition, they also provide a fail-safe as compared to traditional locks. In case of an emergency, most electromagnetic locks will automatically release whenever the power is cut out. Many are looking towards magnetic locks as they provide several distinct advantages over their traditional cousins.

Benefits of electromagnetic locks
1. Ease of installation
First and foremost, electromagnetic locks are simple in construction as opposed to conventional ones. While the latter often has many interconnecting parts, electromagnetic locks only consist of several components. This will make the installation process particularly simple and can be done in a short time. With an easy installation, there is also less chance for mistakes to happen.

2. Fast, efficient and safety
Next, another benefit of electromagnetic locks is a fast and efficient operation. As the lock is powered by electric, the door is unlocked immediately when the power is cut or when the switch is activated. As compared to manually unlocking padlocks with keys, magnetic ones save a lot of time. This is especially appealing to those requiring immediate access to the resources or doors that will be frequently used or in the event of a fire.

3. Remote Access Control
Other than that, the availability of remote operation is also one of the main features. By flicking a switch remotely, you can control the locks without needing to be physically present. This is why many are installing electromagnetic locks in Malaysia.

4. Durability
Lastly, magnetic locks are also sturdy and less prone to damage even if someone decides to force it open with a crowbar. It can be expected to last the lifetime of the door.

Security

The most obvious advantage of having an automatic gate for your home in Malaysia is the added security. Automatic gates can only be opened by using a remote control, switch or card. By having a physical barrier that can only be accessed by authorized individuals, you can prevent unwanted trespassers from entering your houses. On the other hand, young children or pets will remain safe with an automatic gate. You can prevent them from accidentally wandering off to the streets where something unfortunate could happen.

Convenience

Another advantage of installing an automatic gate is the automated process of opening and closing the gates. Imagine getting yourselves drenched while opening your home gate manually. By having an automatic gate in Malaysia, you can open your gates easily while staying dry and comfortable in your car. In addition to that, you can even unlock your gates for any visitors from the comfort of your couch.

5 WAYS TO USE A CARD ACCESS SYSTEM

By Highlight No Comments

1. Residential Access

The most important aspect to be maintained in any housing area or apartment is definitely the safety and security of its residents and tenants. In Malaysia, a reliable card access system will be able to make sure that only authorised individuals and residential tenants will have access to the building itself. This prevents intruders and therefore guarantees security and safety of the premises. Among the many different ways to use a card access system, this is definitely one of the most common one.

2. Office Buildings

Entrances to office buildings can be regulated with the use of a card access system. The system ensures that only authorised personnel and registered visitors will be able to gain access to the building. This ensures security of company personnel and properties in addition to reducing unwanted trespassers. In addition, a card access system allows employers to track movement of individuals such as period and frequency of access towards certain resources or facilities. This will make sure that resources in the company are safe from tamper and misuse.

3. Parking Lots

Another common way we use a card access system is in parking lots and spaces. As urban development brings considerable increase in the number of motor vehicles, it is important for parking lots and spaces to be properly regulated to ensure convenience and feasibility. With the use of a card access system, the number of cars entering and exiting the premises can be tracked and monitored. Premises with large movement of vehicles such as shopping malls and hotels benefit most from this.

4. Payment Card Integration

As this access system uses a card as credential identification, it can also be integrated as a payment card for a cash free transaction. As modern cards are often equipped with microchip technology, the cards can be used as a transactional medium. By eliminating the need to use cash, this type of payment is more secure as each transaction can be traced. This is also useful for employees or visitors to have meals at the cafeteria where they only require their card credentials.

Tap and go fee trap

5. Climate Control

A useful but often overlooked way to use a card access system in Malaysia is climate control. Many modern systems allow the integration of the access system with climate control to ensure maximum efficiency. The system can detect when all personnel have left the building and shuts down ventilation and air conditioning systems to avoid additional electrical wastage. With personnel identification, the climate system can also activate in occupied areas only to maximize electric efficiency.

3. Out of town protection

 

The safety of our homes is often a major concern when we are out of town. This matter is even more prevalent for frequent travellers.

WHAT IS THE MAIN PURPOSE OF ACCESS CONTROL?

By Highlight No Comments

Access control is a term generally used to describe the mechanism for the authorization of certain parties to access specific resources. These resources may be physical such as paper documents, bank vaults and warehouse items. Other resources may be encrypted user information, bank transaction records or simply the safety of employees within a building. Having a security access control system regulates and controls access to these resources.

solid wall panel offices with glass clerestory flex series demountable wall partitions

The main purpose of access control is to provide security by allowing or restricting access to these resources by any party or individual. This is usually done as a security measure to protect those resources from unauthorized access or usage. Simple systems will simply allow or deny access while modern sophisticated systems can allow for intelligent decision making by onboard processors. Remote access can even be granted to visitors or contractors that do not have personal authorization for added convenience.

The need for security has increased over the years with advanced door access security systems utilizing biometric sensors in place of a simple lock and key. The rapid development stems from the increased awareness and need to protect valuable resources from unauthorized access and theft. A functional door access system can be as simple as having an identification card, to having multi-factor authentication and biometric iris scanners. They all essentially work the same way by allowing one to recognize and identify the party requesting access to said resources.

clock link 1

Modern systems even allow for tracking and keeping a backlog record of the frequency and amount of access done. This allows employers to monitor movement and trace access to resources. Incorporation of a camera to your door access system can allow for facial recognition of employees and visitors for added security.

WHAT IS THE BEST HOME OUTDOOR SECURITY CAMERA?

By Highlight No Comments

Setting up outdoor home security cameras is not easy considering the number of factors to consider. From the brand to the specifications of each camera, some may get overwhelmed by the options available.

If you are searching for the best home outdoor security camera, there are some factors that should be taken into consideration in making your choice. The purpose of setting up security cameras is to offer surveillance of the targeted area. This means that the camera should have a fairly competent lens and recording resolution for video clarity. The powerful AX340 – Magtec AHD IR Bullet Camera offers a 5.0 megapixel camera for a high definition outdoor video recording. Higher definition allows the user to zoom in during playbacks without experiencing image distortion or blur.

AX340

Besides having a powerful lens, having lens that can be manually adjusted on the fly is very useful as well. The AX605 – Magtec AHD IR Bullet Camera is equipped with a flexible varifocal lens which allows the camera to manually zoom in on targeted areas. Compared to digital zooming, manual zoom avoids distortion and blurring of images. This allows for greater flexibility as it is usually difficult to find a strategic place to house the camera. The added capacity of zooming makes it more convenient to install outdoor security cameras. With an excellent night view with built-in infrared function, both of these cameras even ensure that your home will be under secure surveillance even when the sun sets. This is especially important as security is mostly jeopardized when it is dark.

AX605

As outdoor home security cameras operate within an unregulated climate, it is crucial to have weatherproof systems to avoid break downs. The tropical climate in Malaysia exposes the cameras to heat and humidity that can cause problems for your camera. A solid waterproof camera can prevent water vapour condensation within it which could blur up the lenses. Overheating of components that run all the time when exposed to the sun can also cause it to break down as well. Our selection of Magtec IR bullet cameras are built to be weatherproof to guarantee a worry-free operation for our clients. Each camera even comes installed with a secure and strong bracket to prevent breakage.

Setting up outdoor home security cameras can be one of the best ways to keep your home and loved ones safe and secure. Magtec offers a range of quality and affordable outdoor security cameras that will definitely make your space a safer place.

Regardless, storage is required and the size usually depends on how much footage do you want to keep. Typically a 2TB harddisk can store 4 channel video recording for up to 3 weeks based on H.265 compression.

The last component that many might overlook is the power supply. A good and reliable power supply is vital as it provides power to the entire system. Components should be made from good quality materials for optimized voltage usage and heat dissipation such as the NVS1250A4C- 4CH Power Adapter. Finding one which offers surge protection can even prevent your CCTV cameras from failing during a lightning storm.

While it varies on a client basis, CCTV camera installation is not as expensive as you would have expected. Nowadays, electronic components are mass manufactured and are easily obtainable at a more affordable pricing. Many share the misconception of high prices that a CCTV camera installation cost.

WHAT ARE THE 5 MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN A CCTV SYSTEM?

By Highlight No Comments

Before you install a CCTV system at your premise, there are a few important things that you should take note of before investing a large sum into a valuable tool.

1. Night Vision

If you’re using a CCTV for night recordings, you will have to choose one that offers good night vision. When the environment becomes dark, meaning that it has a low LUX (lumens per square meter), a good quality CCTV system should capture everything clearly in black and white with the help of its infrared LED. High-grade CCTV cameras such as the Magtec AX series, produce non-pixelated images in low-light conditions, enabling you to view a person’s face clearly with no noise at all.

2. Areas to cover

What are the areas that you would like the CCTV to cover at your premise? Whether it’s your front yard, backyard, office or shop corridor, you’ll need to make sure that the CCTVs have the right coverage in these areas. You don’t want to be missing out on any corners or prominent spots where people can come and leave without being recorded. Professional CCTV system installers will help survey the premise and understand the operations of a place to identify the spots with high vulnerability. Image might appear too small if CCTV camera is installed too far away from target area. Using the correct lens will zoom in to the target area so that the target area will appear big enough for meaningful viewing.

3. Wired or wireless

Traditional wired CCTVs have a more stable data transmission because it isn’t prone to interference or unstable internet connections like how a wireless CCTV would. On the contrary, a wireless CCTV is mobile and much easier to install as there is no need to drill holes for wiring works. Thus, you can change where you put it without much trouble. Compare their pros and cons prior to the purchase, then consider both options based on your criteria.

4. Storage

There are 2 ways to store the recorded videos – hard disk and cloud storage. Cloud storage requires less maintenance because the providers manage the upgrades and issues of the cloud storage. Unlike a hard disk, you do not have to often replace it, all you have to do is notify the service provider to increase or decrease space. On the other hand, with hard disk storage, you have control over the data anytime, even without the internet. It also prevents your data from being stolen via network hacking. It is important to use hard disk designed for CCTV purpose to ensure the hard disk can withstand constant 24 hours non-stop data writing.

cctv hard disk

5. Resolution

Depending on your premise and your needs, CCTV video resolutions can be a key factor for your CCTV system requirements. QCIF videos are lowest in quality with pixels of 176 x 120, and 5MP videos are the highest with pixels of 2592 x 1944. Of course, it’s best to get CCTVs with high pixels because it’s definitely clearer. Even when you zoom into a video showing the back of a car from a distance, you’ll still be able to see its car plate number.
