Access control provides you with a new set of management tools, enabling you to control the flow of people in and around your facility. In addition to the large influx of employees at shift changes or the start of the work day, most facilities have a steady stream of suppliers, contractors and others entering the site. An access control system makes it possible to limit where employees and visitors can go and documents their movement.
The days of large hook boards with dozens of keys is over. Instead, each authorized individual is issued “credentials” in the form of a card or token that allows them to unlock certain doors and enter designated areas at permitted times. When the user presents their credential at a door reader, it’s compared to a database of access privileges that establishes whether or not they can enter. Each entry and exit event can be documented, so you have a solid audit trail that can be used to investigate improper entry, theft or vandalism.
If their responsibilities or employment status of one of your employees changes, you can modify their access privileges instantly. You never have to retrieve keys or worry about changing locks. The savings realized by reducing keyed locks is impressive.
Access control systems are entirely scalable. You can protect buildings of any size with any number of doors, or multiple buildings spread across a large site. Access control technology from SecuSmart gives you a system that helps you better manage and protect both your facility and your employees.
