The paper investigates the wireless body area networks (WBANs) and proposes a novel wireless monitoring and access control system based on BodyCom technology. Authentication methods were analysed. Besides, WBANs and standard IEEE 802.15.6 were considered. This paper presents a prototype of the proposed system and shows a scheme for the implementation. Digital door access control is an electronic locking system operated by a digital key. An electromechanical lock control unit has been designed for this purpose. In addition, a special microcontroller module was designed. The system has a flexible functionality. It can be used both as a home security system and company security systems. The product will be useful for monitoring and access control systems implementation.
The paper provides an overview and analysis of existing authentication methods in wireless body area networks (WBAN). The novel Bodycom technology is presented. We give a detailed comparative analysis showing advantages and disadvantages of each approach and propose the most appropriate authentication technology.
The analysis of the requirements for automatic systems for the physical protection of premises and staff of small businesses is carried out. The architecture and structure of the software and hardware of the complex for the construction of low-budget control and restrict access to protected areas are considered. Practical recommendations on the selection of configuration options of set of tools of the complex that will minimize the cost of deployment, operation and upgrades are provided.
