5 benefits to Access control systems for commercial premises

Listed Under: News and Advice

Controlling who accesses your building or commercial premises is often a difficult job. People come and go, and you often see people walking through the building who you don’t know which can be a cause for concern and worry.

With access control systems, doors can be opened from reception areas via an intercom system or even from off site. Individual users can be monitored with time & attendance systems and access can be granted, or not as the case may be by a central control at the touch of a button.

Here’s five benefits of how access control systems can really help businesses control who comes in and out and to which parts of the building people have access to.

1. Staff Access Management

Do all of your staff require access to all parts of the premises? Some members of staff may need access to the whole building, but some will only need access to the main entrance and their office. With an access control system you can make sure only the individuals who actually need access to certain areas will get it.

You also won’t need to worry about lost keys or doors left unlocked. Staff will simply need to remember their PIN or access card. Staff attendance can also be monitored for a more efficient work force.  

2. Protect your assets and intellectual property

If you have high value assets, sensitive information or innovative products or machinery, access control can really help. Protecting your intellectual property is your right, so it’s important to protect your asset for the sake of your business.

There’s always a risk that someone could gain entry to somewhere they shouldn’t and access control systems give you the power and ability to help to eliminate this risk whilst protecting your valuable assets.
