Why Should My Business Install An Access Control System?
Whatever premises you occupy, your basic security provisions must include the ability to control who enters and when. An access control system acts as your own electronic gatekeeper, allowing for the free flow of authorised personnel while denying entry to unwanted visitors. With walk-in thieves and trespassers shut out, you dramatically reduce your exposure to crime while increasing the security of your employees, visitors, information and assets.
Access Control systems can do more than simply allow authorised people into and out of your premises. Sensitive areas such as a manager’s office, stock rooms or data centres may need special protection. Alternatively, access may be required by different people at different times – for example, cleaning staff may need to access certain areas at specific times of the day.
Access control can be added to existing doors, lifts, auto doors, roller doors, automatic gates and can also be used for time and attendance reporting. Windows based software allows you to easily program times of access to users whilst keeping a record of card entries for future reports.
It may also be important for your business to monitor who goes where and when. Cataloguing employee and visitor movement can generate valuable management information to help your business achieve maximum efficiency.
What Features are Available?
Electronic access control systems are now much more sophisticated than a simple swipe card for entry. A whole host of features are available to enhance the functionality and integration to your business. With highly scalable systems, our access control solutions can control varying levels of personnel access to one site or multi sites. Access privileges can be easily altered as necessary, and systems can also be integrated to work with surveillance solutions and fire alarm systems.
What Types Of Access Control Are Available?
There are two main types of access control: standalone or IP based.
Standalone Access Control For Doors
A standalone system is more suitable for smaller sites, where there are only a few users and the management of access tokens is simple. This type of system can be used to control access to just one or several doors within your building. Access is gained by using a PIN on a keypad, entering a numeric code or presenting a proximity tag to a reader. Each door is programmed independently, and if a token needs revoking from the system or a code needs altering, this has to be completed at every door.
Networked Access Control
A networked access control system allows the programming of individual users and doors from PC based software. This means that commands set via the software are sent to each of the doors on the system. A token can be barred from all doors instantly, creating a more secure solution, and different permissions are able to be granted to different groups of users or individual users.
A networked system also allows reports to be generated to see which user went where and when. This type of system can also be integrated with other existing systems to control intruder alarms, fire doors, lifts and lighting.
