An Access Control System is a security method that controls both physical and virtual access to your property. A physical access control system traditionally includes secured doors or other barriers that can be opened using identity authentication, such as access cards, pin codes or biometric identification.
Ease of access throughout the property
Once employees or authorised personnel are given authorisation, they have access to all areas of the business premises they need with a single access method. This provides employees with ease of access throughout their place of work.
No need for traditional keys
As the same access method can be used throughout the promises, there is no need for individual keys. This creates a simpler access system for employees and reduces the risk of losing access to areas of the building. An access control system saves time for employees by reducing the number of access methods – such as keys – needed throughout the business premises.
Reduce security risks
Access Control Systems eliminate the need for traditional keys. The lack of numerous keys prevents the prospect of future security issues such as lost or stolen keys which can result in unauthorised duplications and the need to change your locks.
If a key card is lost, its data can simply be deleted from the system to prevent unauthorised access.
You may have visitors coming into your business, whether this is regular or occasional, all visitors can pose a security risk to your premises. Access Control Systems enable you to provide your visitors with access to the areas they need but ensure they can’t gain access to any other areas of your business building.
