Access Control Systems
Technology has improved access control, taking security to another level. The main purpose of access control remains to allow authorized persons while restricting access to those unauthorized. Technology, however, has helped provide convenience and quick access, as well as, varying levels of security that we are unable to achieve with just a door lock.
Access Control Systems provide authorized controlled access to areas located within the interior of the building, such as specific floors or rooms, or your entire facility both interior and exterior. It can be set up to allow entry at specific times or days of the week. In addition, no more rekeying the entire office when a key is lost or the key holder is no longer authorized.
Access Control Systems are becoming more sophisticated. They can include custom-tailored reports based on your specific needs which can include, date and time ranges, specifically authorized persons, or locations. It can also include door status monitoring which can monitor when a door has been forced open or opened for too long. They can be managed from your computer at the office or over the Internet from your home office or smartphone.
