Electronic access control systems may seem like something that’s appeared very recently, but that’s not the case. In fact, you can trace the beginnings of these security solutions all the way back to the sixties. In the time since, they’ve advanced further and further, always getting more secure while offering building owners greater convenience along the way. In this blog, we’ll touch on some of the benefits of our key card entry systems for buildings in Orange County. Along the way, we’ll highlight some of their strengths, as well as why you should get these systems from Action1st.
One of the greatest benefits to our key card entry systems is control. They put the business owner completely in control of who enters a building, when they do it and where. Those three topics are all covered by the audit trail our system develops. So, with our systems, you can control who is able to get into your building. You’re able to control what times they’re able to do so. You can have some people allowed to enter early in the morning and others late at night. This makes it easy to schedule holiday or temp workers. Those are just a few of the benefits of these systems.
With our key cards, you can make sure that everyone has access to the building exactly when you want them to have access. That’s because each of our cards is unique from every other card. They aren’t programmed to a client, building or business – each of our cards are programmed for each specific individual. Indeed, that’s how we’re able to allow individualized access for each person. For example, a delivery person that only has access to your building at 6 AM won’t be able to come back with the same key card late at night. Through this, you’re able to make your security system truly amenable for your business.
Flexibility is built into our system. Over the years of providing security solutions to our clients, we know that no two security situations are alike. “Cookie cutter” or “one size fits all” options won’t cut it, as every client’s (and indeed, every building’s) security needs are different. So, with our systems, you can limit access by internal and external control. Internal control is typically used for access to sensitive areas within buildings. These could be the areas where large servers contain sensitive information, supply rooms with expensive supplies and other areas that businesses need to be able to keep lay people out of.
By that same token, external access control usually keeps people from entering facilities. Some examples of these include fitness centers, storage facilities, college dorms, parking garages and locations like that. No matter whether you need external or internal solutions, we can put together a package that fits all of your specific needs. This way, you can keep track of who entered when. So, should the worst happen, and some kind of theft or other illegal act occurs, no investigation is necessary to discover who was where when. You can simply call up the logs which will tell you exactly who had access and when they were there.
It’s important to note that these solutions can fit a multitude of locations. You don’t have to have one server for a building or something like that. Indeed, many of our clients monitor several properties from just one place. They don’t even all have to be in Orange County. Several of our clients are able to monitor properties clear across the ocean from just one server. As we mentioned earlier, convenience is so important. The best security solutions are the ones that keep you secure while also making it easier to do your business. At Action1st, we offer you the best of both worlds.
When it comes time to restrict someone’s access or lock them out of the system, it’s a matter of pressing a few buttons. You don’t have to worry about going out to get a new key. You don’t have to have the awkward situation of asking a fired employee for their key card, then hope that they haven’t made some kind of duplicate. By that same token, it’s easy to grant someone new access as well. You just do the same thing: press a few buttons and they come in.
