Security

The security benefits of access control systems really are endless. If your business has a large premise with outdoor areas, a gate entry system may be ideal. If you simply wish to limit access to the inside of your building, your doors can be fitted with access control. This will mean the whole area is secure and only accessible to anyone with a key fob. Alternatively, this type of system can use an intercom system in which people must confirm their identity.

Remote Access Control

One great benefit of access control systems is that they can be operated remotely. There is a range of remote software which can be used to enable you to watch who is attempting to gain entry from an external device, while certain systems will also allow you to grant entry to anyone with the right permissions.

Activity Monitoring

Another reason you may want to consider access control systems is their ability to track activity over time. This will mean you can keep check of things such as employee timekeeping, rule breaches and suspicious activity. In the event that a crime has occurred, you are often also able to trace which employee’s key fob was used.
