5 Signs You Should Invest in Access Control

Access Insights News Tagged

Have you been thinking about finally getting an electronic access control system? Here are five signs that you NEED to invest!

1. You leave your doors or areas open during normal business hours.

Workplaces, schools, retail stores, hospitals or office buildings all contain expensive equipment and assets. Are you leaving your locks open for convenience? If your answer is “yes”, then it may be time to invest in an electronic access control system to make sure you are protecting your businesses’ investments. Besides, at the end of the day, wouldn’t it be significantly more expensive to replace all of your stolen equipment than to invest in an access control system?

2. You are about to terminate a trusted employee.

Letting an employee go is never an easy task. It’s even harder when they have their own set of keys. Even if you make a point to ask for them back, how do you know they didn’t make multiple copies? An access control system will make this process easier, and will give you peace of mind. No one wants an ex-employee entering your building unannounced or unnoticed.

3. You want to be able to track your employee’s whereabouts.
Do you have a team member that takes one too many breaks? What about an employee who takes an extra-long lunch hour and attempts to sneak back in unnoticed? Are things disappearing from your stock room or warehouse? Or, do you simply want to check on who is in the office working and who is not? An access control system would give you the flexibility to report on employee whereabouts without seeming like a micro-manager. In addition, most systems allow for you to easily export this data and create automatic email reports.

4. You wish for enhanced control of your building– especially when you are not there.

An access control system is perfect for managers who can’t always make it to the office each day. As long as you have an internet connection; you’ll be able to lock and unlock doors from anywhere!

5. You want to restrict access to employees based on specific times.
Use your access control system to keep your team’s work life balance in check with an automated schedule. You can set your system to lock down during off hours, holidays, and weekends. You can always remotely lift barriers or locks if it’s an absolute emergency and someone needs to pop by the office after hours!
