Access Control for Properties in Boulder
What is Access Control?
Access control is a way to give businesses and property managers more control over who can access their property as well as how they can do so. Not only is there added convenience for employees in terms of using a single card or badge instead of a set of keys, but there is also benefit to the employer in terms of not having to recollect keys or worry about former employees holding onto copies of keys. Instead, badges or FOBs can be deactivated, removing such concerns from the access control equation entirely. It should be noted that access control comes in multiple forms, including PIN numbers, cards, FOBs and now Bluetooth.
Benefits of Access Control
Modern access control methods have other benefits in addition to the elimination of worry and hassle concerning the dispensation and collection of keys. For one, access to particular areas of company property can be easily controlled administratively by granting access to those doors which apply to a given employee’s functional needs and not to those that don’t. Unlike a key, if an access device is lost the device’s permissions can be immediately revoked. This means greater peace of mind brought by the tighter security afforded with a modern access control system.
Costs of Access Control Systems
As wireless technologies have continued to advance, savings can be realized when installing an access control system. For example, PDK’s access control systems offer wireless connectivity through wiMACTM which reduces costs of running cable to each and every door you want to add to the system. PDK is also a Cloud Managed system which reduces the cost of purchasing, maintaining and updating an in-house server, not to mention the cost of cloud over time is less than the cost of purchasing and maintaining an in-house server.
