Elevator Access Control Systems

Mammoth Takeaways

  • An elevator access control system controls who can access different floors within a building via elevator.
  • Elevator access systems require the presentation of identifying credentials with proper authorizations before floor access is granted.
  • High-rise office buildings, residential apartments, healthcare facilities, government buildings, and corporate data centers all commonly use elevator access control systems for security.

In an age where security and efficiency are paramount for any business or organization, regulating access at sensitive entry points—often including elevators—is crucial.

That’s why Mammoth Security leads the way in elevator access control products and installations.

With our advanced commercial access control systems, you can genuinely elevate building security, enhance operational workflows, and safeguard vital assets.

How Elevator Access Control Systems Work

A typical commercial-grade elevator access control system manages floor access by integrating with a building's existing security framework.

Users then present identifying credentials—such as keycards, biometrics, or PIN codes—at readers installed in elevators or on specific floors.

The system verifies credentials by checking them against a database of authentic user IDs and site privileges.

Upon successful verification, the system temporarily grants access to designated floors. (If access is attempted but unauthorized, the attempt will be denied and security personnel will be notified.)
