What is Commercial Access Control?
Your business is important to you. Securing it is just as important. The problem with the old fashioned key entry systems is they simply are not the safest manner to manage entry. A physical key device is a non-changeable system that is open to many problems.
With a physical lock to allow entry to the building for an employee or contractor you need to give them physical control to the entry of your site. Often this is done this by giving them a key for their use. A traditional key can easily be copied or stolen. Once the key or a copy of the key falls into the wrong hands, access to your site is compromised. The security of your building is then at risk. The only solution to this compromise is to change the physical locks on the entry doors. At some sites this can be dozens if not hundreds of doors.
Commercial access control gives you the ability to avoid compromising situations. Securing your site in a manner that can readily be changed and updated, without the need for replacement hardware, such as door locks, gives you peace of mind that your business is truly secure. These solutions can even be installed without costly computer systems.
A common form of commercial access control are card systems. Other types of access control include keypads and scanners. You can manage employees or contractors through the issuance of key cards. The key card needs to be scanned at the entry door and its information is checked for secure entry. At any time the system may be reset so that any key card will not open any or all doors. In this manner you can secure your building from unwanted entry. You do not have to worry about keys that are copied or stolen because any key card can be rendered useless very easily.
These flexible methods allow you to add new employees easily or remove old employees just as quickly. These methods also have the ability to manage many entry points in your building. You can setup any given employee so that only selected entry points will work with their key card, or, if needed, give them the ability to use all entry points.
