Access Control Systems
An important aspect to consider when running a business is that of security. For a building that has multiple people using it, an access control system is necessary to ensure that the right people are allowed in and everyone else is kept out. Access Control Systems are becoming increasingly high tech, as modern businesses increasingly turn to them to keep their premises secure. So, why are so many businesses embracing access control technology?
An Access Control System Protects Employees
Arguably the most important reason to invest in access control is for the unparalleled safety it provides for your employees. Your staff will work better knowing that they are safe from any unwanted and potentially dangerous intruders. Access control works incredibly to ensure peace of mind for those working night shifts where there are much fewer employees in the building.
Not relying on a key is one of the more desirable features of access control systems. Even the most responsible people can lose a key. Once a key is lost, it can easily find its way into the hands of a person with bad motives and just like that, your building’s security is compromised. Access control systems typically rely on an access card. These cards can be safely stowed away in a wallet and deprogrammed if lost. This means that even if you lose your card, it will be completely useless to anyone other than yourself.
No Access Code
As well as being keyless, access control systems don’t necessarily require an access code. Access codes can be forgotten and while they can be reset, this is often inconvenient when there are many people working in one building. It is also possible for disgruntled former employees to either memorise and use the code themselves or tell another person the code. This means that the security of the building is compromised and you will need to change the code.
Grant or Withdraw Access Instantly
With an access control system, you can withdraw or grant permission to enter instantly. This means that a former employee, for example, can have their access revoked as soon as they leave the company. On the other hand, a new employee who’s just been hired can have access immediately granted without having to wait an awkward few weeks without full clearance to enter the building.
Customisable and Tailored to Your Business.
An access control system is an extremely efficient and clever way to keep unwanted guests off of your property. You are able to choose exactly which areas you want to be restricted; whether you want the whole building kept off limits or just a certain part, access control will have you covered. There are also different types of access control systems you can use depending on your company’s specific needs.
