As technology changes the world, so do the methods by which business owners protect their businesses. Keyless door locks and electronic keyless entry systems are a more advanced security option that can lessen many worries that plague the minds of managers and owners.
WHAT IS A KEYLESS ENTRY SYSTEM?
In simple terms, a Keyless Entry Systems provides commercial access control security by admitting entrance with a keypad, card reader, fingerprint scan, or even biometric access control.
Easy to use software can be used to track who enters the building and when, and permissions can be granted or removed at any time, from anywhere—no need to change commercial locks when keys are lost, or an employee or tenant departs. This can be a large cost saving advantage over the course of a year.
Further, with a keyless entry system, electronic door lock systems can be set to allow for automatic open and close times, shift access (employee access during specific times and days), and holiday schedules. They can also be used on multiple doors, providing the ability to track individual employees or tenants throughout the entire building in order to increase both security and accountability.
Keyless entry systems combine the best of modern technology with durability and ease of use that make them perfect for your multi-family property, small business office space, retail storefront, hotel, airport, restroom, or mixed-use commercial building.
MULTIPLE EMPLOYEES OR HIGH TURNOVER
In a facility with a large number of employees or a high turnover rate, keyless entry systems are an excellent option. Rekeying an entire building takes a considerable amount of time and budget (especially if a disgruntled ex-employee should happen to leave with one of your keys). With keyless entry, you can simply add new access codes for new employees, and/or delete old access codes for former employees.
CONTRACTORS OR VENDORS NEEDING TEMPORARY ACCESS TO YOUR PROPERTY
Over time, contractors and vendors will probably need access to your facility, whether it is during the actual construction of your building or because of after-hours work and/or deliveries. How much easier would it be to simply create day codes which are only functional for a short period of time? Once the time has passed, the codes are no longer valid.
TO CONTROL WHEN PEOPLE COME INTO YOUR PROPERTY
Keys allow people access 24 hours a day. If you’d rather your employees not be able to enter the building after certain hours, a keyless entry system could be your solution. Simple programming can deny certain employees access after a certain hour of the day, and then re-activate once the permitted time rolls back around.
TO CONTROL WHEN PERSONNEL ENTER
Keyless entry systems allow you to keep track of what employees enter your building and at what time. This can be beneficial for payroll purposes and time clock check-ins (as well as the unfortunate situation of needing to know where certain employees are, because you suspect something isn’t just quite right). A keyless entry system can run an audit at any time to give you that information. Much easier than trying to keep track manually!
NEED TO LOCK EXTERIOR ENTRANCES FROM INGRESS IN EMERGENCIES
As much as we don’t like to think about the worst possible situations, it’s always better to be prepared. Locked exterior doors can prevent dangerous people from gaining access, and that can literally be a life or death situation. Keyless entry systems give you the ability to lock all exterior doors with a couple clicks of a button, not allowing any entry whatsoever. Hopefully (and most likely) you won’t ever have to use a keyless entry system in such a way, but if it should happen, it’s nice knowing that your facility has that capability.
