Access Control Systems Overview
With an Access Control System
Access Control ccess control is a significantly better way to secure entries/doors at a business
It requires , such as Door Controllers and Credential Readers, and and the electronic locking mechanism already on your door
Our access control is hands free, cloud-based, mobile-phone based, and scalable.
Access Control 101
Access control works with electronic locks to limit by who and when facilities can be accessed.
It allows you to remotely add, remove, and change credentials as needed without the expense of having to change locks.
It gives you a full audit log of who access a door and when.
Unlike Surveillance or Alarm products, you can't DIY access control products. They must be professionally installed to meet fire inspection codes.
Access Control Modernizes Keying
Keys are a security nightmare. Keys give access to a facility/door 24/7 with no ability to limit when people should be able to use it. Keys can be duplicated, lost, stolen, meaning a business may have to change locks which can cost hundreds each time. Keys also require active participation from employees, if someone forgets to lock the door it could be a security or safety hazard. Keys do not log by who and when a door is accessed, making tracking down issues, such as employee theft extremely difficult.
Benefits of an Access Control System
Nearly every business can benefit dramatically from access control. The larger or more complicated the business/facility is, the more access control becomes vital to a company and the more money the company saves by utilizing it.
Compared to locks and keys, access control offers significantly easier employee entry management, control of your facility's entries and exits by job role and hour of day, logs of who entered and when, and the complete removal of any rekeying costs when employees leave.
Access control allows you to easily set schedules of when employees should be allowed.
Access control allows you to manage who should be able to access which parts of the facility easily. For example, a bookkeeper at a factory may not need access to the dangerous production floor.
Access control allows you to stop having the drawer of keys and management of keys that can take significant periods of time and lead to security risks.
Access control allows a more seamless, automatic locking system, which takes the burden off employees to remember to lock doors, which is especially useful in areas that hold sensitive data, dangerous or expensive equipment, etc.
Access control also logs who accesses your facility and when.
Access control allows employers to easily add or remove credentials. If a credential is removed that keyfob no longer works.
