Master Key System
This system entails using individual keys for each door and a master key to open all doors. Relying on mechanical locks and physical keys can be challenging when one key goes missing, which will result in the necessity of paying a locksmith to change the locks.
This is where the new computerized master key system comes in handy.
A computer software keeps track of all keys used in the system. Individual keys are code stamped with an ID label to make it possible to keep track of the keys.
Electronic Access Control Systems (Keyless Access Control)
An integrated electronic access control system considerably simplifies the management of access control in retail stores. Access-controlled doors can be managed from a single interface. It makes it easy to assign doors to tenants, cleaning crews, and maintenance workers.
With an integrated electronic access control system, it becomes easy to assign doors to tenants, their staff, cleaning crews, and maintenance staff. An electronic control system also allows for an easy transition in the event of an expansion or relocation of tenants as well as revoking and granting access to their staff. Tenants can be allowed access to their doors and their storage areas and manage access permissions for their personnel. It also makes everyone's life easier by not having to carry around a keychain with a million keys anymore.
With this system, it is possible to grant access in the form of a key card, fob, or PIN and designate permission specified for whoever will be using it. It quickly becomes possible to assign tenants access to their store and their storage areas. You can simply restrict access for employees to just the operating hours and make it possible for cleaning crews to enter common areas after hours, as well as allow temporary access for contractors to specific areas and within a specified time only.
Most importantly for security, the master system controls all doors and closely monitors all entries and exits for each credential issued. It makes it possible and easy to quickly generate reports on demand that show Who entered Where and When.
