What Sort Of Businesses Use Access Control Systems?

Every business wants to be protected from trespassers, burglars and any other unauthorised access. Access control systems are one of many security systems which can secure a business premises and protect the employees, visitors and staff within the business.

What Are Access Control Systems?

As modern technology evolves, security systems are continuously improving. And access control is just one example of today’s digital age. Access control protects a business by only allowing access to authorised personnel.

Access control systems also deter opportunist thieves and can be used to identify and monitor people entering and leaving the building. Installing an access control system in your business premises can also decrease your insurance premiums and will prevent security issues that may arise due to lost keys.

Here at Mayfair Fire and Security we offer integrated Intercom, Keyless Entry, Access Control and Video Door Entry solutions. You can opt for swipe cards, proximity fobs or cards, digital keypads or even biometric technology. Biometric technology includes fingerprint and facial recognition scanners; it provides the ultimate in identification security.

Access control systems can also be packaged with other security systems such as CCTV for maximum effect. Access control is beneficial for a range of businesses, some more than others.

Access Control Systems Within Commercial Offices

Offices are often targeted by experienced thieves who, if they gain access, will take as much as they can. This includes technological devices such as laptops, iPads and mobile phones, many of which contain sensitive information.

An access control system prevents anyone who is not authorised from entering the building. Without a key fob or swipe card etc., unauthorised personnel will usually have to sign into the building and get a visitor badge before being allowed access to the building.
As well as preventing thieves from attempting to gain access, access control systems also help business to monitor staff and other personnel as they enter and leave the building. This can be useful if an incident takes place, as the business will have a log of who was in the building at the time.

Access Control Systems Within Leisure Facilities

If you’re one of those people who regularly goes to the gym (going for one week at the start of January doesn’t count!), you may have noticed access control systems in your local gym.

Access control is an increasingly popular security system amongst leisure facilities including gyms, swimming baths, health centres and fitness studios. Leisure facilities have a high volume of people coming and going all day, which is why its so important to have a quality security system.

As well as deterring opportunist thieves, access control systems will prevent people from using a leisure facility without paying for it.
Some leisure facilities, particularly gyms are open 24 hours a day, which means there aren’t always staff around to monitor people as they enter and leave the building. An access control system will monitor people 24 hours a day and will keep a log of which user was in the building at any given time.

Access Control Systems Within The Education Sector

Security systems are required within the education sector to keep students and staff safe and secure. Access control systems are popular in higher education buildings including colleges and universities where students are in and out at various times throughout the day.

As well as improving security, an access control system will keep track of students, staff and visitors as they enter and leave the premises. Number plate technology will also keep track of vehicles entering and leaving the premises.

Can My Business Benefit From An Access Control System?

The majority of businesses can benefit from having access control as part of their security system. Some business may benefit more from CCTV security systems or intruder alarm security systems. Many businesses prefer integrated security solutions.

Every business is at risk of security breaches and security is an important investment. Here at Mayfair Fire and Security, we will visit your business to gain an understand of your security landscape before designing a bespoke and detailed system specification.
