Concept Information:

An access system acts as a visible deterrent, whether it is fitted to a single entrance or widely applied to a site with multiple doors and different access zones.

The advantages of access control are thus many:-
Access control enables all your security to be centrally controlled
Anyone without a PIN, access card or rights is prevented from access
Avoids the problem of lost keys – you can simply delete and re-issue a card
Stops widespread knowledge of a door entry code or combination
Helps manage site security with contract staff, or permanent staff who leave
Enables restricted access, safeguarding equipment and stock – e.g. IT staff to server room
Restrict car park access to authorised personnel
Protocols can be set to open certain doors during set periods
A fire rosta can be quickly generated in the event of evacuation
Improve staff mangement with reports showing staff movement and time keeping
Provides on/off-site system management and control.

Management information systems can be both on or off site and aside from alarms, your access system can integrate with other systems such as time and attendance or can be extended to include building management and lift control. When integrated with remote monitoring, it is possible for an entire facility to be managed by an external source, applying agreed procedures for access and responding to access issues 24/7.

The benefits of an off-site management system include.
Consistent application of access criteria
A dedicated resource working to assist your staff and visitors
More efficient use of your own resources
The ability to generate reports that track staff movement and assist operational planning
