What exactly is QR Code Access Control and how does it function?

QR Codes offer an effective means of authentication for door entry systems, especially in scenarios requiring temporary access or time-limited permissions, such as managing entry for cleaning crews, contractors, or deliveries. These codes, resembling traditional barcodes but more versatile due to their two-dimensional structure, can store significantly more data—up to 2500 characters, compared to a standard barcode's limit of 43. This expanded capacity allows for longer URLs or text strings.

In a QR code-based access control system, the entry mechanism typically incorporates PC software or a smartphone app. This software can swiftly generate a unique QR code tailored to grant access for a specific duration, designated days of the week, a limited number of uses, and entry restricted to certain areas, floors, or zones within the building.

Once the QR code is generated, it can be transmitted directly to the recipient—typically the individual requiring temporary access to the premises—via email or messaging. The recipient then displays the QR code on their smartphone or prints it out as needed.

An access control or door intercom device equipped with QR code functionality features a scanner, usually in the form of a built-in camera. The user simply presents the received QR code from their smartphone to the access control device, which automatically scans it to verify access rights within the specified time and usage parameters.
