In this day and age, especially for commercial entities and small businesses, the days of keys to open your doors are fading away. The use of access systems for employees has been in use for a long time, but access systems have also come a very long way; they help with a lot more than just security for the front door to your shop or business. Here are a few points to look for when deciding on the access system that is right for your entryways.
Times for Access
With shared entry to some businesses, there could be the possibility that only certain people should be in the building at certain times. This is especially true for schools, but businesses that aren’t open 24/7 don’t necessarily want to grant access even to employees at any hour of the day or week. Many access systems have software that will allow cards or codes to only work at certain time periods programmed into them by the system administrator.
Do you wonder if your workers are actually in the building and working when they should? Some access systems can allow you to monitor your employee work hours when they enter and leave the building. The data capabilities of many of these systems save a lot of time in terms of payroll tracking.
Specific Rooms/Areas Accessed
When used for meeting room doors, some access system provide users the ability to request times to use a certain room for a certain period of time. This comes in handy for scheduling meetings in larger buildings. Of course, on a larger scale, you can limit access to certain sections of your building depending how the cards for the access systems are programmed.
There are different needs for different businesses and buildings. Give is a call if you are entering a new building or want to increase security in your current workplace!
