Access Control Systems & Monitoring
Electronic access control systems are effective security systems that enable a business to track access in areas of the business by either preventing or granting access based on a persons credentials or identity. Business owners who are considering implementing an electronic access control system should consider the following factors when deciding what access control system is best for their business.
Who opened which doors and when?
In an instance of theft or compromised confidential information, it could easily be important to know who entered where and when. This is called an audit trail, and it is an electronic record of the time and date of every attempted or actual entry to a secured space. Depending on what types of materials are stored behind a secured area, this may be absolutely necessary for the success and safety of the business and its clients.
Do all employees need access everywhere?
What’s further is that many business owners would like to control not only who may be in what areas, but also what time of day. For example, there may be no reason for the receptionist of a business to be present in the office space in the middle of the night. Therefore, his or her access could be controlled using an electronic access control system so that he or she may only enter the space when is necessary for his or her job duties.
Is the lost or stolen key would an emergency threat to the security?
Lost or stolen keys almost always present some type of issue for the business owner. Often, a lost or stolen key results in a need to replace all of the locks and keys to the building in question. This is not only financially prohibitive, but it can very often be time consuming. Depending on the sensitivity of one’s business, in the time spent replacing the locks, a culprit could enter the space with a stolen key.
