Not too long ago, the norm for commercial office buildings was to control access through the traditional lock and master key system. Though this can still work for small operations involving just a few doors, it is not the most practical solution for buildings with multiple floors and entries.
This is largely due to the difficulty in tracking physical keys, and the impracticality of changing locks if there is employee turnover. Further, with traditional locks and master key systems, there is no entry and exit audit trail.KEYLESS ACCESS CONTROL SOLUTIONSElectronic access control systems
replace physical locks and keys with keyless access control locks. People are granted or denied access to restricted areas – office suites, storage facilities or parking garages using entry devices such a keypads, card readers or biometric scanners. These will be discussed in more detail later.
Building access control systems do more than control entry to restricted areas. They allow for audit trails by keeping electronic records of entries and exits through doors. These help in identifying who used a particular door at any given time. The audit trails also provide additional information on all people in the building at a given time, what areas they are in, how long they stayed and when they left.HOW IS THIS A USEFUL SECURITY TOOL?
If and when an incident happens, it becomes possible to pinpoint who was in the building or even in a particular area in the building when it happened. The audit trail provides valuable information during an investigation.
