Part of being a good business owner or property manager includes security. Making sure your employees, your assets, and your company is safe is imperative. Having a gated property is common for many companies, and it only works well if you have an effective access control system. Here are some things about access control systems and why you need to consider adding one.
Safety and Protection
No matter what time of day your employees arrive to work, they deserve to feel safe. An effective access control system offers safety and protection to employees. The entry gate system you have will not allow anyone through the gate who does not have the code or the right access card to get into the property. These security measures can protect employees as they can get into the company property without worry that unauthorized individuals can get into the property. Modern gates are not as flimsy as they used to be, and it is harder for people to break-in.
In addition to providing safety, a security access control system is designed to provide convenience. No longer do people need to get out and walk around their car to input a number, or wait for a security guard to open the gate. The access control systems are designed to allow people in with the right access code or card.
Having a good security access control system is set up to provide privacy. Many people invest into larger security fencing systems that do help to provide complete property security, not just the building. The access control system will offer the privacy you need for your employees and your company needs. Many homeowners are even turning to these systems as well to have peace of mind and privacy.
Increased Property Value
Another important element with a quality system is how it can enhance your property value. The extra security measures make it possible for your insurance company to reduce rates due to the enhanced protection.
Other Features of Access Control Systems
Contact our office to discuss your security needs. In addition to the above benefits, we recommend access control systems for the following:
- Restrict Unauthorized Access and Theft Reduction – You have control over everyone who has access, and can set times on when people can have access. Employers can set up schedules including times for cleaning companies to come into the building. Owners will be able to have remote access to their building with the system.
- Logging Visitors and Electronic Tracking – With a quality system, you have the ability to record and log every access. The reports give you insight into who is accessing your property, and where they are at in the building.
- Reduce Common Problems – A quality system also reduces problems with employees losing keys, or swipe cards not working.
- Reduction in Energy Costs – When you have a quality system installed, you can set it up to control the lighting in the building, helping to reduce how much energy is used by the entire building.
