Today, businesses of all sizes have made security their top priority. If you work with expensive equipment or confidential information, safeguarding your business’s assets is important to attain success. Whether you have ten employees or ten thousand, commercial access control systems can enable or disable access, allowing your employees only to go where they are expected to go. Access control systems can save you money, make life easier for your employees, and keep your workplace secure. Let’s see why having an access control system is absolutely worth it.
Increases Ease Of Access For Employees
An access control system enables you to “set and forget.” Once you allow the authorization, an employee can access every area they need to get their jobs completed. With the input of a pin or the scan of a keycard, the employee can get to wherever they need to, easily.
Get Rid Of Traditional Keys
Using traditional keys has some drawbacks. Individual keys will be required to restrict access to specific areas. If the building is large, you’ll need many locks. For a security team member with high-clearance, or a janitor, this might mean carrying around a heavy key ring and lead to confusion regarding which key opens which door. However, with an access control system, it doesn’t take much time to access restricted areas, and saves you potentially multiple visits to the locksmith.
Another problem is that keys may be duplicated, which means that unauthorized access may still occur. If an employee forgets to turn in their key before leaving their shift or the company, the building may be unprotected until the locks are changed. With access control security, you don’t have to worry about this.
Save On Time And Energy
By using access control security, you save money on security personnel and locks. An access control system can verify the identity of a person without needing a security guard. Plus, access control systems can also be integrated with heating, cooling, and lighting systems. When there are people in the room, you can turn the lights on, and when they leave, the lights will switch off automatically. You can also adjust temperatures manually when no one is in the area to save on energy costs.
Monitor Who Comes And Goes
An access control system offers you data on who enters/exits a room or building and when. You can ensure individuals are working when they’re supposed to be. If an accident or theft occurs, you know who accessed a particular area at the time of the incident.
Protection Against Unwanted Visitors
A large building creates chances for visitors to go undetected. One of the advantages of using access control systems is that unauthorized individuals can’t enter. Since doors require credentials before they unlock, only those you’ve offered credentials to can access the area. If you use this system, you can be sure that everyone in your building is supposed to be there.
