Limitless Access Control Options in Your Patented MAC Portal from MSSI
When it comes to industrial and commercial construction projects it takes more to protect a perimeter than simply building a tall fence with some barbed wire on the top. A well-thought-out perimeter security plan for any construction site should incorporate multiple levels of security solutions to keep a site safe and secure from intrusion. More than ever before, major construction companies are realizing the value of not just stopping theft on their projects but also taking measures to combine the efforts of security with time-keeping, and payroll capabilities in their access control solutions.

By incorporating access control technology and software into a patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with full-height turnstiles, customers around the world are not only keeping their perimeter secure but they are also able to track employees’ safety training credentials, produce mustering reports, and maintain time-keeping and payroll functionality.

At Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) we work directly with our customers to pick out the right access control solution from a wide range of access control providers we've partnered with over the years. 

Every project and construction site has its own set of circumstances, locations, duration, and man-power needs. For that very reason, the security professionals at MSSI know that there is no "one-size-fits-all" access control solution for each of our customers.

By maintaining a working relationship with a wide range of access control technology providers, we have been able to provide RFID card readers, hand geometry readers, and other biometric security devices into our patented MAC Portals. 

For more information on how to keep your next construction site safe and secure and to learn more about our access control partners CONTACT US HERE or call us at 740.532.7822.

Access Control and Turnstiles in a Turn-Key Security Solution

Some Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI) customers prefer to have access control hardware and software pre-installed prior to the delivery of their patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal. The ability to have card readers and biometric access control solutions already installed and ready to "plug and play" makes the patented MAC Portal the most flexible security solution with turnstiles and a guard office. Depending on your site-specific security requirements, the MAC Portal can come delivered with access control ready to be integrated into your existing access control infrastructure or act as a stand-alone unit.

At MSSI we get calls daily regarding custom access control options that can be integrated into our Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals. In addition to access control technology, MSSI has installed any number of other features including cold/extreme heat weather packages, exterior siding, restrooms, and ballistic packages to our MAC Portals.

When it comes to a portable perimeter security solution with turnstiles and access control technology, the patented MAC Portal is the most customizable, easily transportable solution in the security industry.

Traditional stick built guard houses with turnstiles and access control technology can take months if not years to design, engineer, build, and integrate. In comparison, MSSI can build and deliver a turn-key, ready to use MAC Portal with turnstiles and access control technology in as little as six weeks.

Modular Security Systems Inc. & the History of Access Control Technology

Posted by Miles Duncil on Thu, Nov 9, 2017

Access control is nothing new. Access control has been in use to help protect people and their property since the first caveman blocked the entrance of the cave in which his family slept. The situations in which access control technology have been used throughout human history, as anyone who dares to ponder can see, are wide-ranging and all-encompassing. Whether it was a big stone or piece of wood to block an entrance to a cave, a drawbridge or moat around a castle, or tall “walls” made of trees sharpened like pencils surrounding a fort, each access control technology solution of its time was implemented to protect people and their things. 

From the beginning of time through today, there has been and will continue to be a need to limit accessibility to some places for some people. 

So, what makes today's access control technology so much different than that first stone used to "close the door" on that cave? 

Well... much like that stone, today’s electronic access control solutions give security-minded folks the ability to restrict access to certain locations for individuals – but without all the heavy lifting. 

Since the 1960s, access control technology has been utilized to add or restrict entrances and to track people coming and going, and to do so in a wide range of manners. In the not-so-prehistoric early days of access control technology, a simple keypad was used to restrict certain areas. Shortly thereafter, RFID or simple magnetic swipe cards came into use. While there is now a wide range of biometric access control technologies available, magnetic swipe cards are still in use today.

Unlike that fort with the “spikey tree walls” one level of defense is no longer up to par for today's security standards. In order to meet the needs of modern day access control and perimeter security access control, technology has evolved into tools that allow you to create many layers of protection that can adapt to any security concerns – whether you are at a bank, a military base, or a major industrial or commercial construction site. That evolution and the ever-changing security concerns give reason as to why access control technology today has been developed to allow security professionals to update and maintain their chosen security solution(s) with just a few clicks on a keyboard or with a mouse.

Using biometric access control hardware that ties into access control software, security pros can keep all of their security solutions up to date, management can revise access control lists, times and attendance for payroll purposes, and grant a wide range of authorization levels for individuals quickly and easily – within just a few seconds. 

The access control technologies that involve biometric parameters don't require someone to keep track of a card, badge or PIN number. By scanning someone’s fingerprint, hand, the veins in their hand, their eyes, or even their face using facial recognition devices, the access control technologies available use identifiers that can't easily be lost or left on the kitchen counter at the house. 

These access control technologies and software solutions can perform tasks above and beyond simply granting access of an individual into a room. They can also help track an individual’s history of activity, create alerts if a door or gate is left open, and in the case of an emergency such as a fire, unlock to allow escape. 

Not only does today's access control technology give you peace of mind knowing the harvest won't be raided by the next village over, but it's also friendly to your pocketbook and can help save security-minded folks a lot of time and money. Unlike more traditional modes of perimeter security, modern day access control technologies can not only prevent theft, but can also help track employees for time and attendance – and can be installed at a fraction of the cost of building a 10’ perimeter wall of sharpened spikey trees. Access control technologies today are so easy to update and maintain that they can give customers a fantastic return on their investment.

Modular Security Systems Inc.(MSSI) is at the forefront of portable perimeter security solutions using a wide range of access control technology and shipping container modifications. For more information on MSSI and all of our access control options, CONTACT US HERE or call at 740.532.7822.

Just recently Modular Security Systems Inc. delivered this Modular Access Control (MAC) Portal with three turnstiles in a guard house. This unit has been put on site in Wilmington, NC as a way to maintain access control for this major construction project. Like all Patented MAC Portals this unit was built in Worthington, KY and was fully integrated with access control hardware and full height high security turnstiles before being delivered to the plant site. Upon delivery the MAC Portal was hooked to power and the access control software in the unit was tied into existing access control systems at the location.
