More and more companies and private individuals are opting for access control. It is often not desirable to give every visitor access to an office or business premises. A Door Access Control System is therefore perfect to solve this.
The benefits of access control
These are the main advantages of a good access control system:
- Access control: You can determine exactly who can enter when
- No costs when losing keys: Loss of keys no longer means that you have to replace all locks, you simply remove the access control cards and tags in the access control software
- Ease of use for yourself, your customers and your employees
- Less chance of internal fraud by staff and visitors
You can easily set who can enter and when, for example, that your administrative employees can only enter the building from Monday to Friday between 8:00 and 18:00.
Warehouse employees can only enter the warehouse, general areas and the canteen. And so you can set up an access group with different access rights for each group of employees.
No costs for loss of keys
When you can easily remove access control cards and tags, you need to be less careful about providing access to your staff. Where in your current policy you may not have given every employee a key, employees had to open the doors for each other.
Or maybe you had to do it yourself. This takes time and will not be too motivating for your staff. In this way, unsafe situations also arise.
It often happens that around the start and end of the working day, the doors are temporarily kept open by putting a block or other obstacle in between so that not everyone needs a key. Situations like this can be easily avoided by installing an access control system with an Electronic Door Lock.
User-friendly access control
A user-friendly access control system is characterized in such a way that the user barely notices that access control is used. In the past, to open a door, people had to open the door by means of the door handle.
The only difference with access control systems is that one now has to present a drop or pass before the lock can be opened. An important thing is that doors to common areas in walkways must be easy to use during office hours.
User-friendliness can be greatly increased by setting these doors in a way that they are freely accessible during office hours and automatically lock after office hours.
Less susceptible to fraud
In the explanation of the advantage in point 2, we already discussed how demotivated your staff become if they cannot independently enter the business premises or site.
With a good access system you are less on your guard because losing a card does not mean that the entire mechanical locking system has to be replaced or that you will have the annoying gut feeling of a missing key in the near future.
If everyone within the company immediately receives an access control drop on the first working day, this is enormously motivating. Your employees can now enter the business premises themselves within the frameworks you have set.
It is immediately clear to everyone that this is the only way to go through the building and that a log is made when a certain entrance door is opened.
