What is an access control system?

An access control system is a security system that enables controlled movement, accessibility, and monitoring of people on a site.

Small and medium businesses often use access control systems to keep their employees and customers safe on-site. 

Business access control employs different technologies such as readers, biometric scanners, key fobs, or other devices to regulate who can enter a certain location and when.

Why are access control systems important?

Access control is imperative for small businesses.

Whether you are a restaurant, cafe, or pharmacy, you must protect your premise from unwanted breaches and threats. It is important to employ a security solution, such as a business access control, to control the level of access available to occupants and at varying times. Access control systems ensure employees, visitors, contractors, and personnel on site feel confident and safe.

What are examples of access control?

An access control system is a security solution that dictates physical spaces' access, movement, and monitoring.

There are many types of access control that can be employed including mechanisms like doors with security locks, keypads, smart locks, and a key fob. Access control software such as biometric scanners with fingerprint recognition and facial scanners that determine user credentials can also be employed.

Which access control is best for business?

Businesses should employ access control systems custom fit to their individual needs.

Video surveillance as your only means of security monitoring is not enough and we encourage you to consider what access solutions you want to use.

An access control system must consider the size of your business premise, the number of employees, the assets on the premise and access permissions granted to each user.

How do I install access control?

Access control security systems are best installed by security professionals. There might be a wide and unique range of intricacies based on your individual business needs.

  • How do you want to manage access to your premises?
  • Do you have an already existing system?
  • Do you want remote access?

How much does an access control system cost?

Access controls must be custom-fitted to the varying and unique needs of your business or organisation.

Factors to consider include the size of a premise, the traffic, the value of assets, the level of access rights you want to grant and the range of technology you want to employ.

There are also many types of access control, and businesses may need to incorporate an access control system within their existing infrastructure or alarm systems.
