Not too long ago, the norm for commercial office buildings was to control physical access through the traditional lock and master key system. Though this can still work for small operations involving just a few single doors, it is not the most practical solution for buildings with multiple floors and door entries.
This is mainly 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, unlike electronic locks.KEYLESS ACCESS CONTROL SOLUTIONSElectronic access control systems
replace physical security, like locks and keys, with wireless access control locks. People are granted or denied access to restricted rooms — office suites, storage facilities, or parking garages using entry devices such as 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 places. 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 rooms 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 spot in the building when it happened. The audit trail and access control system provides valuable information during an investigation.
