Badge printing – The vendor may be able to supply a specialized printer so you can create new cards as needed, with or without photos.

For some types of access control systems, you may also want voice communication capabilities, such as an intercom or a telephone entry system.

Telephone entry systems, common in large apartment buildings, allow visitors to dial a specific unit to request entry and let residents unlock the door using their phone.
