what are access control systems?

Access control systems do just what the name implies, which is to give you control over who has access to your business. Without access control, literally anyone from off the street can walk into your business and do whatever they like. Although this might be good for high street trafficked businesses like the Gap or Jamba Juice, for more other businesses it’s not a pretty picture. If you have jewelry, pharmaceutical supplies, or any other high-end merchandise, access control might be essential for protecting your property. 

How do access control systems work? 

There’s many custom setups for access control, but they all operate under the same principle – you decide who can enter and when. For example, a buzzer access control system uses a simple buzzer to buzz someone in, or not. Usually the buzzer is placed behind a desk with an easy access for employees. And there are remote buzzers too. Another kind of access control system is keyless access control, using keypads and key cards instead of keys or buzzers. 

why are access control systems important?

Access control systems allow the business owner or manager to decide who can enter or not enter a business. Since most burglaries are people who live near the target business, it’s more important than ever that you know and track who enters your store or office. For this reason access control systems often compliment surveillance systems and security camera installations. 

what happens if i dont have an access control system for my office?

Well, nothing, technically. But you may have an impending sense of risk with each person who enters your office or business that you don’t know. Have you ever been to a pawn shop late at night without a buzzer? Or been to a large business that didn’t have key card identification? These businesses know that they put themselves at risk when they skip on access control. 

how can i fix or install an access control system? 

We don’t recommend business owners trying to DIY their own access control systems. In fact, you’ll likely do more harm than good. Access control systems can range wildly from the simple one-buzzer setup to hundreds of key cards, multiple access points, and more. For this reason it’s best to hire a processional locksmith and security expert to repair and install your access control system.
