This article discusses the position of access control systems in the field of intruder systems, its benefits and wide-ranging use in the academic environment. This article points out the potential of access control systems and motivates further research in the field of alarm systems and their integration. As part of the dissertation a project for an access control system was submitted, which enabled the purchase and implementation of an access control system for the teaching laboratory at the Faculty of Security Engineering. The installed access control system serves not only as security for the selected laboratory, but also as a teaching aid, which is used in teaching and thus increases the practical competencies of students. The system is also accessible to students, who can create methodological procedures for its testing and subsequently test them. Such measurements are then used in solving students' final diploma and dissertation theses. Approximately 50 students use the access control system during the academic year. The contribution and aim of the paper is to point out the use of the implemented system in the academic environment and its impact on the improvement of teaching. The conclusion of the article consists of the benefits resulting from the implementation of the access control system at the Faculty of Security Engineering and recommendations for its further use.
