Choosing The Best Access Control Systems for Your Business
Director // Security Expert
When you own a business, it’s important to keep your employees, assets, data and clients safe, and one of the best ways to do this is through access control. These systems monitor who’s coming in and out of your premises, as well as when and how. Here are some of the access control systems currently on the market that can help secure and optimise your business. Which one would best suit your needs?
Biometric systems make use of facial, fingerprint and/or voice recognition to allow employees access to areas within your business premises. Biometrics can also be used to allow access to particular technologies and equipment. The system is virtually impossible to get through without being granted access. This revolutionary technology is costlier than other but as it’s almost impossible to circumvent it’s growing in popularity amongst businesses.
RFID or Tag Access
RFID or Tag Access is a much more affordable and widely-used option when it comes to access control for your business. The system works by giving employees tags that are scanned and then allow access. These tags can have your employee’s data loaded onto them, so you can see who’s coming in and out and as soon as an employee leaves it can be reprogrammed and used again for a new staff member.
Before the days of tags and biometrics, there was manual access control, and this is still very popular. This type of system makes use of a security guard or receptionist that writes down the names of people as they enter and access the building. While this system does have its flaws, it does not rely as heavily on electricity and internet connections and it’s good to have a manual system in place in case of system failures.
CCTV cameras are not in themselves a form of access control but they do work well in conjunction with access control systems. You can install a screen in your office with the CCTV footage streaming from entry points to keep an eye on who is coming in and out of the building.
