Access Control Systems
Access control systems are designed to make the access points of your building secure. They do this by letting you control and monitor the access points of your building so you can determine how your employees, assets or vehicles move in and around the premises. The physical barrier prevents the entry of unauthorised personnel making sure that the only people who enter the building are authorised to be there by granting access electronically.
Keys are great as long as you keep track of them but when you pass them out to your employees, the security levels triple. They can be lost or fall into the wrong hands which can result in not only an expensive change of locks or re-issuing of keys but can mean loss or damage to capital assets.
It always does to remember that no one cares about the security of your business as much as you do (FACT), so even though you might think you’re most trusted members of staff will go out of their way to keep your business secure, a few drinks later and your keys could be hanging off the nearest disco ball!
Electronic Access Control systems combine a form of reader to identify people by their credentials through the use of Touchlock keypads, Proximity readers (Key Fob) or Cardlock (magstripe) readers. Access is gained by using a code or PIN with a keypad, or by swiping the key fob/card which has a built-in authentication mechanism.
Each staff member or visitor is issued with one key fob or card to gain access through selected doors, gates or barriers. This means that if you need to restrict areas to certain groups or individuals, each door can be configured separately giving you the control to say “Who”, “Where” and “When” personnel can access these areas.
Lost key fobs or Cards
Access Control Systems avoid any need to change locks if someone loses their key fob or card, by just a few simple steps the device can be invalidated therefore voiding any future use. This gives you total confidence that your premises stay secure, something that is just not possible with a lock and key system.
Access Control Systems can also be tailored to certain times of the day so you have control over the security of your site around the clock and there is no need to spend huge amounts of money on night-time security. This allows you peace of mind knowing that your premises and assets are all protected, even outside of normal working hours.
No one wants the job of keeping track of what employees are up to or when they come and go in working hours, but sometimes it pays to be observant. Not all employees play by the rules and in fact lateness is a number one bugbear for many business owners and can cost a company thousands a pounds of year in lost hours. Yet monitoring staff attendance on top of a heavy workload is sometimes impossible and without proof it can be difficult to deal with especially if you have employees that will deny their tardiness when confronted.
With an Access Control System you can log information with software that you can then use to produce management reports that are always 100% accurate and effectively manage staff members closely.
