In building managements, business security is a top concern by property managers and business owners. Installing many doors internally and exterior, the sensitive areas, and where there is heavy traffic are all areas where security is emphasized. Access control systems should be able to provide a solution about security and also lessen unauthorized entry in a specified area. Building managers may look at access control as expensive and complicated and not easy to implement. But, access control systems are designed to fit almost all building sizes, types of occupancy and budget. Access control systems enable professionals in building to limit admit of humans in restricted areas.
In access control systems there are some cards with a magnetic strip having the cardholder’s information. The card reader scans through swiping the stripe to either allow or deny entry. Since the cards are inexpensive, it is possible for every cardholder to have a different code for entry and exit. Every user is expected to enter some of their biological data on the system. Fingerprint and eye print is the most common biological information used, but palm print and voice activation are requirements that the access control systems can recognize. There is more security in such access control systems as compared to card-swiping, but the use of an eye or palm for recognition is much better as the system does not forget an eye.
It is a lot cheap to install and purchase because the access control systems technology is rapidly growing. Users enter a code they’ve been assigned onto a keypad so that they can gain entry into a building. Tampering with an electronic keypad is difficult because they reprogrammable in case the need arises. It is possible to track entries with the unique code given to allowed entrants. Each access control system has many components. The main component is the computerized control center and an entry log showing entries for every authorized entrant to a given building or area.
Access control systems can help curb some situations if they are installed. If there is a security lapse, access control systems can lock all enabled areas and remain with only the allowed exit or entry point for high clearance. This way whatever security issue it is it can be contained. If employees are not honest it becomes hard to estimate the extent of the security breach. If access control systems are installed property owners should not worry about entry by unauthorized employees. Executives cannot count in terms of money spent in to achieve security control and the peace of mind that comes with it.
