Access control is a key component of effective building security
Building security begins with proper access control. As we face heightened security issues building security should be high on any business owners list of priorities. Access control is first and foremost about granting direct access to people who should have access and preventing unauthorized people from direct access to the building or even parts of the building.

There are many different access control systems. Some of the latest system make use of the cloud and others make use of biometrics. For example, the Lockstate access control system is a cloud based system that integrates external controllers with wi-fi connected devices. This a complete and cost effective access control system that is reliable and easy to use.
Access control systems can make use of card readers, door contacts as well biometric features such as RFID controls, fingerprint scans or retinal scans. An access control system should be part of an overall building or facility security system. Other aspects of a security system could include video surveillance, alarms, remote monitoring, communication and response.
Apart from security access control systems are also useful in time and attendance systems. The system records time of entry and time of departure. That way you can know who is in the building and who has left. Access control can also be implemented to restrict access to certain areas, departments or floors.
With proper access control, you and your workers can have peace of mind that safety and security issues have been adequately addressed. By keeping your workers and your assets safe, your access control system effectively pays for itself. Greater productivity, less businesses interruption and risk and lower insurance premiums are examples of how an access control system can be justified.
