While security is one of the major pillars for the smooth functioning of any business, any size, many deny recognizing the importance of access control systems in the office premises which when managed correctly can make a significant contribution to the growth of the business. For beginners into management and start-ups, access control is something more than a gate pass and has a multi-faceted role in the security of a company. With access card systems and security breach news everywhere, you must take access control seriously at least now.
Secure Your Office
The apparent benefit of the access control system is the security it provides in keeping your files, employees, and cash, if any, safe from trespassers and looters. The security extends to a very extent if all of the work area doors are fitted with access control systems. You will have the freedom to individually programming access for various persons across various doors, creating layered security access, which is very much helpful with offices having a hierarchy within the workforce.
Save on Money and Time
If you are wondering how it saves on money, consider a team of security personals doing cyclic duty to guard your office 24/7. It will cost a lot over a period, which compared to the one-time investment in buying the access control system and hiring a security manager to maintain it. These access control systems not only access/deny permission to open doors, but higher variants record information and send those date to servers which can be used for attendance of the employees than filling the worksheet manually and save on time.
No more Losing the Key Issue
With the digitization of keys even when the key is lost, you won’t have the burden of changing the lock or making a new key for the last one. With the master key, the security manager can easily cut access for the lost key and grant a new card with access to the person within no time without any threat to the security.
In an emergency, the access control system can be programmed to unlock all the hallways and lock the storage areas so that people can escape and the documents remain guarded. The triggers too can be set to automatic with the help of automated security cameras system and smoke detectors. Even when done manually, the emergency release is straightforward from the central control system.
