Not sure I understand your access code. I manage my collections with group permissions. There might be a more efficient way, but this is what I do.
Step 1 - Go to:
Collections > Blog > Settings > Collection permissions > Permission management: tick Advanced permissions
Collections > Blog > Settings > Collection permissions > Allow access to: select Members (or Community, depends what you want)
Step 2 - If you want to make the collection disappear from the publicly visible menu:
Collections > Blog > Settings > Lists of collections > Show in front-office list: select as appropriate
Step 3 - Create groups:
Users > Groups: add groups
Step 4 - Set group permissions:
Collections > Blog > Settings > Group permissions: assign as appropriate
You need to do steps 1+2+4 for each collection separately.
