Why implement an access control system? This technology ensures that the user only has access to the resources and supplies necessary to perform their job duties. Perhaps more importantly, access control devices denies access to any sensitive data, security features, access levels, or area of access to which the employee is not granted authority to access. Which eliminates possible security issues, or breaches.
Employee turnover is a part of any business. As your employees come and go you want an immediate solution to lock them out of important data or your facility. We support multiple solutions that can immediately solve these issues. Access privileges can be shut down instantly with a few simple clicks of a button. Access levels can be denied through a mobile device, or key fobs rendered inoperable.
Disgruntled workers can destroy a business on their way out. Businesses can be seriously affected by a disgruntled worker who can sabotage the data systems or steals from you. Waiting for a lock to be changed leaves you vulnerable for an extended amount of time. Digital solutions such as a thumbprint device can deny or restrict access in a matter of moments. As well as a quick return on investment, seen simply by no longer needing to change locks or keys when personnel change. This time and money saved along with the added security is a no-brainer.
Have you considered the ease of allowing your employees access to the building via their smartphone? With today’s connection through smartphones, it can be easy to grant access to multiple locations or facilities without a large keyring for every district manager or keyholder. Many businesses purchase phones for their employees, why purchase keys, fobs, tags or badges too? Technology control can be granted directly through the employee mobile device. Their phone can act as a key and unlock the door.
Always in control. Installing digital solutions such as biometric detection or face recognition software can be altered through any connected workstation or a connected smart mobile device either inside or outside of the facility, giving you control no matter where you are. Providing you the ability to restrict access or require authentication from anywhere in the world making your time away from the office as secure as when you are there. Sensitive data can be placed on lockdown, or access privileges granted to someone in-house who needs control. It’s all in your hands.
Biometrics, the future in your hands. With technology on the rise, it stands to reason that security closely follows. Face recognition, fingerprint security, or eye scanning is not a thing of the further anymore. Technology allows us to do almost anything you need to keep our business safe. An access control panel can be installed at any station, access levels, or door lock. Biometric authentication can be via a mobile device as well as a control panel.
Are you prepared to handle a true emergency? Many businesses must account for emergency situations, such as an active shooter, fire, or threat in progress. Panic buttons will trigger a lockdown with the push of one button. Panic button solutions come in both hardware and software. Meaning that you can press a button on your mobile device or computer, or an actual button in the corridor or wall, even under your desk, the options are endless. Perhaps you need a solution that has a battery back-up in case power is lost. Hardwired solutions are effective if the power or network goes down.
Need to let someone in, but you can’t get there. With access control devices you can control exactly who is coming and going, grant access privileges to a vendor/employee without a key, wireless door unlock, or simply look in on who is there through video surveillance without having to go into the office. Also, time-locked doors can unlock the door at specific times or door lock at the end of the night.
Who can get in where? Managing multiple areas with different security clearances means you likely experience issues with compartmentalization. Large facilities with multiple doors and access levels often encounter this. It can now easily be programmed for each section of your facility allowing access only to the sections each person needs while denying others. Maybe you need an employee to have access but only at certain times, that’s possible too. The control systems can receive authentication through an access control panel, key fobs, biometric authentication, mobile device, smart card, almost any device that works for your security needs.
Are you paying your employees too much because of timecard fraud? Arrival or departure times can often be in question and raise an issue with your employees. Tracking data from the access systems gives you real-time ingress and egress data. Down to the second arrival or departure, can easily be tracked and reviewed for timekeeping policies and accuracy. Making your employees more accountable for their time.
Say goodbye to HIPAA lawsuits. HIPAA liability concerns can be monitored with tracking data management systems which provide reports of sensitive data access for review or possible lawsuit. Security biometric credentials, such as face recognition or fingerprint access, can protect the rooms that house confidential data. Maybe you just need a manager override that locks down sensitive data or will restrict access when the user attempts to access HIPAA secure data. Both tracking and security measures can be easily put in place.
Lock-out/tag-out technology leaps forward. Safety doesn’t need to be a liability with access control parameters. More machines are becoming digital thus more digital access control solutions are necessary. An electric lock security solution can lock-out/tag-out and prevent a machine from being started up until the process is cleared or until a manager’s credential is provided to grant approval to start. There are also biometric solutions that will prevent anyone from starting back up the machine except the user who lock-out/tag-out the machine ensuring their safety. Say goodbye to those lost tags or dangerous, even harmful, mistakes.
Understanding ease of access. We don’t want to encumber your employees. Perhaps your employees need their hands free. We have retinal scans or face recognition that can grant access to the user hands free. Do you need something easy to carry or mobile? We have key fobs or smartphone capability, mobile device apps. Maybe you need something that can be voice-activated. The point is, we help make it easy for. Your security doesn’t need to come with an added price.
Emergencies call for the exact tracking of all employees. Large facilities have to account for everyone in the building which can easily be hundreds. Access control systems, card reader, or other control panel devices account for every employee and where they last were located in the building. First responders can receive real-time information about where someone was last when every second counts.
What is the best access control system? All businesses are not alike thus the access control system that is best will be the one that fills all your security gaps and accomplishes all of your needs. Security control systems and devices come in a huge variety of options. We sit down with you and help you identify your specific security holes and needs. Then we can discuss which system is best for you and why. Without first knowing your business pitfalls you can not properly identify which system you will need.
