Access control systems are a vital part of ensuring the security of your business. These systems, as a priority, allow you to determine who is allowed entry to certain sensitive areas of your premises, so that you can keep unauthorized individuals out. They do this using ID’s (cards, tags, keys), PIN’s or by using some biometric method. This last method, biometry, is by far the most secure but is also the slowest which means many end users still opt for cards and tags. To help you determine the best Access Control system for your needs, here are the types that are currently available: Stand-alone systems: Do not require any type of infrastructure or connectivity, the Access Control terminal itself has the memory and the capability to manage users. These entry-level systems are usually limited by the number of users which can be stored and generally don’t allow for scheduling. One or two entrances can be controlled. They are ideal for small shops, offices, warehouses, etc. with a maximum of 30 registered users. A variation of stand-alone systems is telephone entry systems. These systems provide the option for a guest to call up to a resident so that they can remotely open the door for them. These types of systems are generally found in apartment buildings and they effectively act as an automated doorman who screens guests and determines who is allowed in or not.   Managed systems: Are networked and connected to a central software application from which users are administered, hours and calendars are controlled together with entry permissions. This allows security personnel to not only restrict access but also monitor who...

Security has been a growing concern for businesses in different industries- from small shops to large corporations. Priority is now being placed on keeping people, equipment and information safe. It is then important to reinforce the need to control access into organizations and to properly identify those persons who are seeking access. In the past, many businesses used lock-and-key access systems. While this type of system can work for a business with only a handful of employees, it usually isn’t effective for companies with larger workforces. Employee keys can get misplaced or fall into the wrong hands, and companies must spend money either replacing the keys or all their locks. Another potential problem with this type of system is that within most companies, only high-level staff receive keys. This results in employees not having access to the facility in situations where the staff is absent from work. An access control system can provide you with greater control over who enters your building and when they enter your building. It can also allow you the power to remotely monitor access to your business. With these types of systems, employees use badges with embedded wireless technologies or punch-in codes to gain access to the building or certain spaces. These systems allow businesses to control who can access buildings or rooms always or on certain days and times. They are also more user-friendly for employees at all levels, who may need to have access in and out of buildings after their supervisors leave for the day. With access control systems, companies can keep track of who is entering and leaving buildings. This information can...
