Why Protect Your Commercial Property with an Access Control System Now
First, there’s bad news. Sadly, burglaries at Boulder businesses have increased during this public health crisis. Boulder police report March saw more business break-ins than January and February combined. With so many businesses closed, police believe burglars are taking advantage of this unprecedented opportunity.
Here’s the good news. You can increase your commercial property’s security with an access control system.
How an Access Control System Works
With access control, there are no keys. Instead, when an authorized person needs access to your property, they present a credential to a reader. The credential could be a card, pin code, fob, or a smartphone. The system’s administrator (you and/or the person you choose) gives and revokes authorization for the system’s credentials. All access to the business is also logged in the system so you can see exactly who gained access and when.
The Ideal Solution When You’re Off-Site
There are access control systems that allow the administrator to manage the system from any internet-connected device. That makes access control the ideal solution for securing your property when you’re not on-site. The administrator can lock (and unlock) doors and manage credentials from anywhere. Access control also makes it possible to monitor your building’s access events in real-time no matter where you are.
Additional Benefits of Access Control
Since access control is keyless, it eliminates all the hassles that come with managing keys. Say good-bye to lockouts. And no more worrying about lost keys. If an employee loses their credential, you simply revoke the lost credential’s access and issue them a new one.
Also, no more employees who leave the company without turning in their keys. When someone leaves your organization, you simply take away their credential’s permission to access your facility. No more worries an employee may duplicate a key without permission. We are also locksmiths so we have a far more comprehensive approach to securing your property than other access control companies.
