If one has ever settled a bill for changing one’s office locks and thought if there were a better way. In fact, there is. Access control and digital keys are easier and more cost effective than one can imagine.
While mechanical keys will keep a building secure, they lack the flexibility to adapt to one’s changing security needs. Standard physical keys are difficult to track without a key management system.
When a key goes missing, changing a standard mechanical lock or rekeying is time-consuming and often expensive
Some types of key are quite straightforward to cut without permission. And when a key goes missing, changing a standard mechanical lock or rekeying is time-consuming and often expensive — 100€ or more every time.
Yet the alternative — electronic access control — can seem daunting, over-technical and potentially expensive. But this need not be the case, if one chooses the right wireless access control system.
The basics of digital locking
Best wireless access control systems lets one choose the format to suit one’s business
Everything begins with the credential — the digital key one’s building users will carry at all times. Credentials can be plastic smart cards, fobs, wristbands or even stored in a secure mobile phone app. The best wireless access control systems lets one choose the format to suit one’s business, and even to mix different types of credential in the same building.
When one swaps keys for credentials, one brings enhanced flexibility to building security. Most importantly, if someone loses their credential, one can cancel it with a click. One would never rekey or change the locks again.
Access control system for intrusion detection
One can program and reprogram credentials and wireless door locks as many times as one likes
Electronic access control is highly flexible. So, if some staff should have access everywhere, but others only through the main door, it is easy to program the system to allow just that. Plus, one can program and reprogram credentials and wireless door locks as many times as one like: employees leaving or joining the company create very little workload.
If the worst happens and there’s an unexpected incident — unauthorised intrusion or theft — an access control system helps one handle it quickly and efficiently. Because everyone carries personalised credentials, the system software will tell one who went where and when. Yet another occasion when wireless access systems save time and money.
