Physical access - How it works

Nexus Smart ID Physical access is a solution that enables you to consolidate entitlements from several different physical access control systems (PACS). The solution provides a unified, vendor-independent view of your different PACS and enables administrators to manage all user groups and their credentials centrally, in one system. The solution covers everything in your PACS, from the service centers where you issue access cards to employees or visitor, to your access control points.
