Regardless of your industry or business size, adequate security is essential. Unfortunately, as criminal activities evolve, so must our security measures, calling for more technologically advanced systems. An access control system is a valuable feature to any security system, protecting sensitive information and valuable assets by controlling who has access to certain areas and who doesn’t.
Not only will it make your life and the lives of your employees much easier, it will keep your property and assets extremely secure. In fact, an access control system installation holds several benefits for your business. Let’s dive in!
Prevent Problems Proactively
The ability to control access to certain areas helps you protect your assets, equipment, and sensitive data before theft occurs. You can choose which relevant, trusted employees have access to which areas. Furthermore, the fact that each employee knows exactly where they are allowed, where they aren’t, and how their arrivals and departures are tracked is in itself a notable deterrent.
This is also particularly helpful at facilities where dangerous substances or equipment are used. Anyone who isn’t trained or familiar with these things will be denied access to where they are stored, preventing accidents and protecting yourself from compensation claims.
Kiss Keys Goodbye
Although many find comfort in having a set of keys securely tied to their belt or key chain, keys offer several drawbacks. If there are multiple restricted areas in your business, most employees will end up having a bulky keyring to fiddle with every time they need access. Not only is this confusing, but time-consuming – especially when multiple trips to the locksmith are involved.
Another thing to consider is the ease of duplicating keys. Whether you have a malicious employee, one who tends to leave their keys lying around, or another who forgets to turn them in before clocking out, unauthorised areas are almost consistently vulnerable, and lock changes may be necessary. Access control systems eliminate keys and the problems that come with them.
If you invest in the installation of an advanced access control system, you will have access to data on who enters and exits every entrance and room. You’ll have solid evidence that your employees are where they’re supposed to be and doing their job – and when they’re not. This is especially useful in cases where theft, damage, or neglect occurs, as you will know exactly who was in what area and at what time.
