Biometric systems are complex devices that read fingerprints, hands, or retinas to allow entrance. This is a lot like a card system but allows your team to not have to remember to carry a card.
Card access systems allow your team to present a key card to your system to gain entrance to the building. The system records every transaction so you always know who exactly is in the building and at what times. You can easily add or remove cardholders into the system so your company’s safety is never in jeopardy.
A keypad access control system uses a keypad to control access to secure areas. Users enter a code to gain entry. It can be connected to a door lock, gate opener, or integrated with other security systems. It allows access only to authorized individuals and keeps a log of entry and exit times.
Managed access control systems incorporate video and voice intercoms to control access to a building or secure area. They use a combination of keypads, card readers, and biometric scanners to grant access. The video intercom allows for visual verification of visitors and the voice intercom allows for two-way communication. These systems can be managed and monitored remotely. They also allow for different access levels, schedules, and provide logs of entry and exit times.

An access control system is the first line of defense for your property’s security. It is an electronic system that allows people to enter your building without being verified by an actual person. Many systems allow you to control who enters the building or secure spaces and set specific times of availability.
There are several types of access control systems. Your options may include:
When using an access control system, you have continuously monitored surveillance of everything that happens in your building. You also have detailed logs of who accessed your information, property, or various areas of your property. This is especially important in case of theft.
There are many reasons an access control system would be beneficial for your business. For example:
If you have a situation where something is stolen and you don’t have a record of visitors, what will you do? In these situations, you risk losing everything permanently without recourse because there isn’t a way to determine who took your property.
Did you know 90% of business theft is from employees? An access control system makes it considerably more difficult for employees to steal from your company because everything is recorded. Access is monitored and when you integrate the system with other technologies, they are documented electronically and visibly.
Though it’s not a common occurrence, sometimes people you work with become angry and threaten your organization. This could be from a bad experience with an employee. Or maybe someone didn’t receive the outcome they expected and wants revenge.
An access control system prevents people like this from accessing your building and your team. In addition to blocking access, when paired with video surveillance, you have concrete evidence of the threat to your organization or employee.
If you aren’t convinced yet, we have more benefits to tell you about. An access control system does more than protect your building. It gives you peace of mind about the safety of your team and assets. Not to mention, you’ll prevent many costly situations that result in damage and theft.
