Why use access control?
Access control enables you to control who has access to your building.
While the old fashioned lock and key can help the security of your building, but can be detrimental as well. Keys can easily be lost or stolen, and the more they are copied, the bigger the risk. Any of these eventualities can result in an expensive and inconvenient visit from the locksmith.
No matter how big or small a business is, there are always assets that need to be protected, as well as the need to protect employees and their personal property. It is not unusual in workplaces to see buildings left unlocked throughout the day, to save the hassle of staff members using keys to access the building. This leaves all the building’s contents vulnerable to theft and damage.
An electronic access control system provides a very efficient method of properly securing your building, insuring that your assets and property are always safe, without ever changing another lock.
Unique tokens allow access to individuals through any controlled door that you allow them access for. Unlike keys, should one of these tokens become lost or stolen, or if somebody who should no longer have access fails to return one, they can easily be barred from entry, immediately denying the holder any further entry.
Once an access control system is installed, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a designated time frame.
Access control can also offer flexible control over users’ access rights. For example, all staff can gain access through the main door of a building, but access to internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.
