Access control allows you to monitor the movement of everyone who has access to your building, which means you control who can go where and at what time, allowing you to keep access into restricted areas limited to authorized personnel only. It also gives you a log of all movement across access points, providing your security team with valuable evidence in the event of an intrusion into a secure area.
Access control systems also improve employee productivity by monitoring punctuality and can be integrated with your payroll systems to auto-generate attendance records, which certainly come in handy on pay-day!
In terms of security, access control is an effective long-term, cost-saving strategy for businesses. Clients can request that the system be configured to request for additional credentials (such as a PIN code) before being granted entry, which then negates the need to have all checkpoints manned by guards.
And while keys are easily lost, your biometric fingerprint is intact for life. In the case of proximity cards, it is as easy as deactivating any lost or stolen cards rather than having to replace locks in the case of the traditional lock-and-key solutions.
