Advantages of Access Control Systems

  1. Access Restricted- You can program the system to allow certain users to enter some areas and not other areas. Persons can also be restricted to enter areas only at designated times. Obviously other users can be allowed to enter all locations at all times.
  2. Track Access – Keys are also anonymous. Access Control create a detailed audit trail. So you know exactly whose card opened each door and when. This can provide you with critical information before and after an incident. The system can also email alarms on access violations to authorised personnel for immediate review and action. It will also collate the information and produce management reports as to who has been through which areas and when.
  3. Automating – Systems can automatically lock a door or gate each evening at a certain time and unlock it at another time. They can also automatically interface with other Building Control Systems e.g. To release some or all doors in the event of a Fire Alarm Activation.
  4. Replacing Keys – Managing keys can be a nightmare. If you use a different key for every door it can be cumbersome to carry them and time consuming to look for the right key. Keys are easily lost or duplicated and past employees often do not return keys. Access control systems eliminate this concern by deleting the card from the system to deny the former user access. In some cases its possible change the access can from an off site location.
  5. Visual Verification – By including colour coded distinctive badges access systems can readily identify visitors, temporary employees, contractors and regular full time employees. Also including a photo of the user on the credential you can help building occupants know the card user is the person to whom it was issued.
  6. Compliance with Health & Safety Regulations – Helps organisations comply with Health and Safety regulations. That’s allow supervisors to view real-time reports showing who is on site at any particular time. The system can set to release all doors, turnstiles and gate-entry systems. In the event of an emergency so in the event of an emergency such as a Fire Alarm the system will automatically release all controlled door.
