Why Commercial Access Control Is A Smart Business Decision

Why Commercial Access Control Is A Smart Business Decision

For years, businesses have relied on simple keys for security, but as technology advances, so does the need for up-to-date security. While keys may have worked in the past, they can create a huge hassle when they become lost and they make your business much more susceptible to break-ins than full security systems with key cards. By upgrading to commercial access controls, a business can have better security against intruders, as well as greater convenience for everyday operations. Commercial access control allows you to manage aspects of your business at all times from all places. This includes surveillance features, entry permission, lighting and temperature control, and more, all from your smart device.

Benefits of Commercial Access Control

Video Monitoring. With commercial access control, you can get video surveillance that allows you to see what’s happening in your business even when you’re not there. Video monitoring offers several benefits: the visual presence of a camera deters potential criminal activity, having a camera encourages appropriate work behaviour from employees at all times, and a camera allows you to monitor when needed. Even when operations are flowing smoothly and all employees are working their best, this is a beneficial feature as it allows you to see what people are coming to your business, including shippers, custodians, and more.

Personnel Tracking. Record important details of those entering the building, such as their name, occupation, reason for entry, and the time they enter and exit the building. Knowing who is entering your building and when assures you and your staff that only personnel with permission are in your place of work, giving the whole staff a greater sense of security. This type of detailed, catalogued monitoring also encourages staff to be on time and can resolve any potential time-keeping issues.

Permission. With commercial access control, you can determine who is allowed in the building and in what areas. This allows you to restrict certain areas if they are off-limits for some staff, and it also prohibits people from entering your business without your permission as they might be able to if your company used only key access. Having adjustable permission settings also allows you to let people in when it’s necessary even if they wouldn’t normally have entrance. With access permission, you can allow access to employees, tenants, or contractors remotely via your smartphone.

Cost. By eliminating the need for traditional keys and instead having an electronic system, it saves your company money caused by human error. Not only is your business protected from staff members forgetting to lock all doors, if any members of staff lose their key card, a new one can be reissued easily. You can then alter the program to allow access to the new key card and not the old one, so that if the old card gets picked up by someone else, it is useless. If a key card is lost, there will be no need to replace the locks and issue new keys to the other members of staff. Commercial access control systems also save your company money with features that allow you to easily and remotely turn off lights, adjust the temperature, and more, lowering utility costs.
