Access control is a key layer of security for any premises and much safer in comparison to traditional lock and key. At a basic level, access control is a means of controlling who enters a location and when. The person entering may be an employee, a contractor or a visitor who could be on foot or using a vehicle.
The location where access control is used can be anything from a single room to a whole estate. For example, in a hospital the access control system can secure the site in multiple layers, providing different people have higher or lower access rights, in turn these rights can be modified at any time. An access control systems primary function is to increase security however, a physical access control system can offer many additional benefits such as, improved efficiency of your business processes and/or building management.
Why you should have an access control system:
- Keys are often lost.
- Keys do not leave an audit trail.
- Keys are difficult to manage.
- Access management.
Without an access control system in place entering multiple buildings and rooms would mean having to carry a large number of keys. It can be difficult to remember which key is for which door, but it is also too much of a security risk to label them, in turn wasting valuable time.
Our specialist division CVSS Ltd recently installed an access control system to a sixth form college consisting of 176 doors, alongside a fully integrated management system. This has allowed an increase in safety for both staff and pupils at the campus due to the system restricting unauthorised access to classrooms and other areas within the college and student/staff numbers being able to be easily monitored, which is particularly useful in the event of an emergency.
