All businesses, whether small, medium or large, have assets that need protecting from the event of theft or intruders. Access control is a way to enable control over who has access to a building or particular sections of that building depending on requirements.
Of course locks and keys allow you to secure your building and these sensitive areas, but keys do occasionally get lost and they can be easily stolen. The cost and inconvenience of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Keys can be copied very easily when they get in the hands of the wrong person this could pose a major security risk.
Not only are you looking to protect business property and assets but also staff and their individual belongings. What generally happens with a building secured only by lock and key internally are doors being left open and unlocked all day, this opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.
The best option available to avoid all of the risks above is by installing an electronic access control system. Using access control is an efficient and simple to function way of securing your building and it’s assets. You will never have the need to change a lock again. You will supply access cards to authorised personnel which allow them access through the controlled doors, access can be restricted to certain zones and also if cards are lost, stolen or not returned, they can be barred from entry.
Doors can be programmed to be unlocked for a certain period of time, or use the default setting of automatic lock once the door is closed.
So there you have it, access control systems could be the answer you have been looking for.
