Book Description

Access into buildings, controlled access within buildings, perimeter access control and perimeter protection are all areas that have been expanding rapidly within the security industry. All of these areas are now dominated by electronic solutions.

Gerard Honey's book is the first to focus on the design and installation of electronic access control systems. By providing the more practical information needed by system designers and installers, as well as essential guidelines for managers with responsibility for security, Electronic Access Control is vital reading for all those involved in the security business.

This book provides the underpinning knowledge needed for level 3 NVQs and other SITO courses. The concise, accessible text makes it an ideal coursebook. This same accessibility also makes Electronic Access Control ideal for hard-pressed practitioners.

    Just text after text after text. I was hoping it was more visual book with details about locks, readers etc and wiring examples of basic set ups etc the truth is it is a waste of 40 quid you get more info from the product PDFs and more help
    Wish I could get a refund

    1.0 out of 5 stars only usable if you have no experience in the field at all 15 Sept. 2007
    By Kenny Kim - Published on Amazon.com

    This book is a complete waste of time if you are actually trying to design and implement a system for the first time. Almost every section covered ends with, installation details regarding equipment and wiring will depend on the manufacturer. Which is of course true, but that should not have prevented the use of concrete examples of test systems that specify how one could create one of these systems would have been much more useful for someone attempting to implement an access control system for the first time. If all you are looking for is a general overview of different doors, conduits, wire ratings, and types of access control with no actual examples of how to implement said products into a working system, then this is the book for you. If you are like me and trying to create an actual system, this was a waste of time.
