IP-based door access systems provide better security and ease of management at a much lower cost than earlier technologies.Traditional door access control systems use a number of protocols to communicate with each other, such as the Wiegand, RS-232, and RS-485. But with IP-based Access Control Systems, all the communications from the Access Control Server to the Access Control Reader-Controller happen over the Internet Protocol (IP). So, instead of multiple cables, only a Category 5e or Category 6 cable (as used in your LAN), goes to each door.
