It’s hard to deny the influence access control has had on commercial security. Changing outdated, traditional door locks to access control systems that take away the worries of losing keys should be an easy decision for business owners who are concerned about security. But for those who still need convincing, here are some other benefits of moving up to access control.
Access control systems are easy to retrofit, which makes the cost of installation lower for the business owner. In the past, access control installation required a lot of hard wiring; today, that has been replaced by simple engineering that replaces the door locking hardware with the access control reader. As for how the communication is powered, that happens with a wi-fi connection. Today’s access control is manageable technology from installation, to deployment, to daily operation.
Access control technology is no longer exclusive to sensitive sites with big budgets. Now, it’s available to businesses that range from single doors and small square footage to high-rise buildings and complexes with multiple structures. Easy scalability is about implementing effective technology for an application of any size or scope, and that’s what today’s access control systems offer.

More Customization Options
When it comes to access control, there is no longer a singular mold to fit into. It’s now possible to issue employees any number of credentials, from a digital card to a key fob. For businesses that need even more advanced options, biometric access control is available in the form of fingerprint readers. With any credential option you choose, you’ll have access to regular reporting features; these can be used for audit trails or internal investigations.
If your organization is ready to leave keys behind and move up to access control, we would be glad to answer your questions.
