If you operate a business or a organization that has multiple people that has authority to access the building then you are certainly concerned over who has access to your business. One of the most simple security measures you can put in place is a Access Control System. The most popular and secure means of Keyless Entry Systems is using Proximity Readers and Proximity Cards. These types of systems allow you to assign access to a card for an employee or member to allow them access to specific doors, at certain times and days. The employee can present their card within two to six inches of the Proximity Card Reader to gain entry at the door. The Proximity cards come in all type of variations such as a Key fob that can be put on a key ring, Wafer that can has an adhesive back that can stuck on a phone, computer or existing card.

Access Control Systems are more secure and easier to administer than the more traditional method of providing employees keys to your business or organization. If you have a number of employees, giving them keys to your building would be a serious security risk and would come with a very hefty price tag to maintain. Just one employee losing a key or leaving the job without returning a key means you would have a security issue on your hands. The expense of having the locks changed can become costly, considering you have to not only change out the locks, but you would have to distribute new keys to all employees as well.

Access Control Systems allow you to easily deactivate a single card if lost, stolen or not returned by a former employee. You don’t have to spend the money to change any locks, have new keys made or assign those new keys to your employees.

Access Control Systems use an electric lock that can be installed at any door in your building, which means you can use them to control the entry doors to the building, but you can also use them for doors inside your business as well, to limit access to particular parts of your business.
Access Control Systems can record and track information to a computer software that can provide reports for you regarding who has been where in your business, and when they have been there. This is helpful information to have at your fingertips if any type of theft does occur or if the lights were left on all night burning up the electric bill. Plus this can make your employees feel at ease and assured that access to the facility is limited to those with the proper entry card.
