If you want to keep your business secure, one way to do so is with a card access control system. A card access control system will allow you to limit who comes into your building. Here are four more benefits of this system.
1. Reduce Utility Costs
A card access control system runs on building management software. This software can be used to do more than just control who comes in and out of your building. For example, you can use the building management software that your card access system is built on to manage your building and automate additional tasks, such as when lights come on and off and controlling the thermostat. With a card access control system, you can use the software to manage your building and save utility costs more effectively.
2. Automatic Backups
With a card access control system, all of the information can be arranged so that it backs up automatically to a cloud source. That way, if your computer crashes, you can still access all the security information associated with your card access control system, as the data is backed up to the cloud automatically each day.
3. Control Entry
Third, you can have precise control over who has access to your building with a card access control system. You can control who can access different doors on your property. You can control what times people can enter the building. You can easily give and revoke access.
With a card access control system, you can have complete control over who has access to your property and when they can access it. As a result, you can take the guessing game out of who has access to your property.
4. Easy to Disable Access
Normally, you would have to pass out physical keys to everyone allowed to have access to the building if you wanted to keep the doors locked. With a card access system, you just hand out little plastic cards to your employees. These cards are much easier to replace and deactivate.
If an employee loses a card, all they have to do is tell you, and you can go into the system and automatically deactivate the card, ensuring no one who shouldn't have access is able to get into the building. Of course, you would have to rekey the locks with a physical key and get everyone new locks if a key were to go missing.
It is easy to deactivate a lost card or revoke access to someone who has lost the ability to access your building.
5. Record Access
Finally, with a card access control system, you are going to be able to have easy and detailed access to records of who has entered and left your building within a given time. You will be able to easily identify who had access or whose access was used in the event of theft or vandalism.
A card access control system can be integrated with your building management system. It can allow you to enjoy precise control over who has entry onto your property and allow you to record that access. In addition, you can easily deactivate someone's access for any reason. With a card access control system, you will have more control over your building's coming and goings.
