Access Control Application Note
The control of access into or out of elevators is important in order to protect residents and tenants of mixed-use developments or apartment buildings.

Multi level access control is best as it reduces the risk of cross-pollination of residents to different floors of a building.EvTrack combined with 2N and Axis IP Hardware creates a ‘multi-zone’ or multi-floor elevator access control solution.
