The Uses of Access Control

As well as giving control over entry and increasing the security at your premises, windows based access control systems provide the following uses:

Replacing Fobs/Cards When a Staff Member Leaves

Installing an access control system may mean you never have to change a lock again. Tokens or cards allow admission through controlled doors and are easily barred from the system if they are lost, stolen or not returned by someone who leaves your company. Barred tokens will not allow access.

Control Different Areas of the Building for Specific People

These systems also offer flexible management of users’ access rights. For example, all staff may gain admittance through the main door of a building but admission to certain internal areas may be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there; or entry may only be granted to particular users at certain times of day or night.

Restrict the Hours These Doors Can be Used

For a further layer of security, use access control to stipulate who can use the property out of hours.

Staff Time Keeping

Pay your staff fairly for the work they do, while monitoring their comings and goings. Access control is a simple method of knowing exactly who is in the building at any one time; invaluable for fire drills, let alone a real fire.

How Access Control Systems Work

Once such equipment is in place, all doors controlled by the system will automatically lock when the door is closed. Anyone without a PIN or access token/card is unable to enter. If necessary, doors may be set to unlock during a pre-set period.

Access control systems may need to be integrated with fire detection systems for compliance purposes and door/gate automation and door entry for security and convenience.
