6 Reasons You Need Access Control Systems at Your Property

1. Protect Your People: Access control systems offer a safe environment that your “people” will appreciate, thus bringing them peace of mind. If integrated with other security platforms such as security systems, video surveillance, and other measures, access control provides a “layered” security approach that will enhance protection and reduce costs due to theft and vandalism.

2. Restrict Access and Reduce Theft: According to the Association of Fraud Examiners, internal theft accounts for up to 5% of businesses’ annual revenues. For H.O.A.’s and multi-family buildings, the vast amount of damage and theft is from residents. Access control allows you to administrate access to certain areas and at what times you determine.

3. Audit Trails: Along with the added protection and peace of mind that access control provides, the system also offers a log of events. Whenever someone uses their card for access, it logs who it is and what time they used it. The audit trail that access control includes is a fantastic management tool for employee time and attendance. For property managers, access control keeps their tenants accountable and consists of a record to review any incident that may occur.

4. Eliminate Key Problems: NO MORE KEYS! You can use cards, fobs, smartphones, and even fingerprints for access. Your facility will be safe from unwanted intruders, leaving you less concerned about lost keys and whose hands they may have landed in, and of course, the cost and hassle of re-keying.

5. Customized Schedules: Access control systems allow you to minimize your risk by never granting more access than is required for each user and at any given time. Want to provide access to an area, but only between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM? You can do that! Have a cleaning crew or vendors requiring short-term access or certain hours in the evening, or perhaps someone needs 24-hour access? Access control can limit or expand the hours of access easily.

6. Remote Access: The most convenient access control feature is allowing access to individuals when you are not there to do so yourself. No matter where you are located, access control systems can provide access to areas remotely, and you will always know who is coming and going.
