Whether you want a simple system to protect your private property or a highly technical system for your commercial business, an access control system can provide the right protection to make you feel secure about your property. Check out these different types of systems, why they are so valuable, and how you can find one that is right for you.
With residential properties or complexes, it is important that homeowners and residents feel safe from burglary, vandalism, or inappropriate access. Having access control solutions can make the property or complex more desirable to potential buyers or those looking to rent a property.
For example, you can fit an electric gate with a motion sensor, a password protection system, or a card access system to deter burglars.
Security for businesses can be more complex than security for private properties. Unexpected visitors can reduce productivity, and the presence of access control solutions can prevent interruptions in an employee’s day. By preventing surprise visitors from gaining access, employees can work without needing to stop as often to answer queries or re-direct visitors.
You can also improve safety by giving only certain employees or visitors more access to your facilities. For example, a card access control system can be installed to ensure that certain staff only enter the premises on certain workdays. You can also use a security system to monitor staff work hours by logging their arrival and exit times.
Features for your system
There are many features to an access control system. Depending on what you need, a system can be as simple as an electric gate or as sophisticated as a password-protected or card access control system. Multiple systems can be installed to work together to restrict access to gardens, parking lots, and any buildings or rooms within the residential complex or commercial business center.
Electric gate systems can be installed with a remote control system, allowing the driver to access the property at the touch of a button. This prevents unwanted visitors or intruders from entering but ensures that residents or employees can enter and exit without delay.
Gated systems can also allow remote access. If a resident or employee is expecting a visitor, they can remotely open the gate when the visitor arrives, allowing for easy and prompt access conducted in a safe manner. This can reduce the need for a security guard or manned entry and exit points.
How card access works
Card access is a great example of what an access control system can do for you. Having a programmed card controls who can enter the property or building, providing safety and security from the moment a resident, employee, or visitor scans their card. A card system gives residents or employees the freedom to move within and between buildings with ease and negates the need for remembering passwords or access codes. Moreover, if necessary, cards can also be loaned to guests for the duration of their visit.
A card access control system can be programmed for each specific employee or resident, allowing access to the required areas but preventing access to rooms or buildings that the individual does not need to enter.
Investing in security
It is difficult to put a price on safety, but security features make your residential property or business more desirable to residents and employees. Low risk of crime and obvious investment in personal security make a house or apartment more appealing as a home. With improved wellbeing and increased productivity within employees, it is easy to see why an access control system is an important feature of your business.
