Have you ever wondered who may have the keys to the front door of your business? It can be kind of scary to think of who may have access to your assets, company records, and client information. Because our security needs are always changing, maybe it’s time to consider a door access control system. Below are just some of the reasons why you may want to purchase a system.
- Access History
- Remote Access
- Long Term Feasibility
The basic role of a door access system is to keep unwanted guests out, while allowing hassle-free entrance to those who need it.
As much as it would greatly simplify our world, businesses just aren’t run the same. Everyone has a different idea of how they would like to keep their business secure. If you want to have one person oversee your door access you can do it. If you’d like to have a tiered approach, that is also very doable. Another big customization is how the doors function. Some prefer doors unlocked during certain time periods, or maybe just one door on its own schedule. This again is easily accomplished.
Our online software tracks and records all the activity on every door. You can easily go back and see who came in your doors at 3am on a Sunday morning. This can be used for tracking entry, but also used for payroll at the same time. Remote access is a huge benefit so individuals no longer must travel to location to unlock or lock doors, easily done remotely saving time and money.
Another benefit is having control of keys, wondering who all has them causes a breach in security when keys are lost whereas with a secure card or fob it is not evident to what door they belong. Replacing doors and or locks is expensive and inconvenient. If a card or fob is lost, it can be easily removed from the database. One key for multiple locks helps the control. Owners of multiple properties no longer need to search thru piles of keys for the appropriate key. There are a few different methods to allow access besides carrying an actual key. Some of the methods are proximity cards, key fobs, and biometric options.
Key card or key fobs access systems can help to prevent loss so although not inexpensive to install, they are all around less expensive. No more calling the locksmith to replace all your locks. Tracking employee time and having the records to find a thief are also cost saving features.
