Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) knows access control.

Access control may be regulated by a number of ways including by personnel or with fences, turnstiles, guard houses or any combination of them combined with access control technology. The term access control basically means the practice of restricting entrance to a location, construction project, or a room to authorized people. Physical access control can be achieved by a having a guard or through mechanical means such as turnstiles and access control technologies like the Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. Within these portable perimeter security solutions security minded professionals can find a turn-key facility with all three: turnstiles, access control technology, and a guard house.

Modular Access Control, MSSI, Turnstile, Turnstiles, patented MAC Portal, access control, Modular Security Systems IncAn access control perimeter security system like the Patented MAC Portal helps determines who is allowed to enter or exit a specified facility or project, where they are allowed to exit or enter the site, and when they are allowed to enter or exit via the turnstiles and access control technology. Traditionally, this was achieved by time clocks, guards, and "brass alleys". Given the modernization of time clocks and security systems electronic access control has now become the go-to for many industrial and commercial construction sites.

Electronic access control like that found in Patented MAC Portals use proximity cards, bio metric security technologies like Iris Scanners, hand geometry units, and vascular scanning solutions to solve the limitations of traditional access control and time keeping techinques. Electronic access control systems such as these allow access based on the uniquely provided bio metric. When access is granted, the turnstile is unlocked for a predetermined time and the transaction is recorded. When access is refused, the door remains locked and the attempted access is also recorded. The systems in Patented MAC Portals will also monitor the turnstiles and access control technology to allow from payroll, time keeping, and muster reporting functionality.
