Whether you are at home or at work, everyone wants to feel secure whether you are there or not. Using an access control system is a new and innovative way of allowing people to feel secure wherever they are and have control at all times. The beauty of these systems are that they are completely customisable to the individual’s needs. Whether it be for your home, business or any other type of property, access control systems can use cards, key codes, voice activation or fingerprint scanners as methods of identification. There are many benefits in using this type of security system, all of which should be considered before deciding which system is best for you.

Access denied

One of the most useful and practical benefits of access control systems is that you will never again have to worry about losing your key. This type of security system has no need for any physical key unless you would prefer. This means that there is no longer any need to worry about being locked out of your home or business or as mentioned leaving it somewhere/losing it. Plus if you are using it for a business property, if your employee forgets you can simple reprogram a new code for them in minutes.

In an age where you need a password for everything and being advised to have a different password for each with complicated characters, letters and numbers remembering passwords can get confusing. However, with an access control system you do not have to worry about having lots of different passwords for every door/part of the property as your code/fingerprint etc. is individualised so will allow you access to everywhere.

In the past many break-ins have occurred as a result of keys being duplicated, something which can be catastrophic for business owners. This however rarely happens with electronic forms of security as to duplicate them is an extremely difficult and would require someone with professional skill and knowledge. In turn electronic systems are able to provide your home or business with an extra layer of security.

One of the more recent modern updates to this kind of system is that it can now be remote controlled from your laptop, phone, iPad or whatever device you wish. Sometimes you won’t be at your home or business property and will need to let people in either a locked out family member, neighbour checking on your home or maybe a deliver at work. Using your access control system via a remote controlled device you can allow access to whoever you like, whenever and give them very specific access. If for instance at a work property you are expecting a delivery and you aren’t there, you may only want to give access to a specific warehouse. With this type of security system this is possible from anywhere in the world.

Access control systems also come with a history record log so that at any point you are able to see who has accessed your property and for how long. With this you are able to track the activity of employees at work, what time your children come home and even in situations of theft.
