How Access Control Can Protect Your Business

Protecting your business or home is a top priority for many people.  Whether you’re protecting against theft or fire, there are measures that can be put in place to prevent or limit the impact of both.
Access control is one such measure which can be used to minimise the risk of theft by controlling who enters your premises.  Access control can also prevent unauthorised entrance to certain areas of your premises by limiting access to certain people.  This may be the case in a working environment which has a large number of employees and numerous areas which need to remain closed off to certain people for reasons of security or safety.  Access control helps you to protect your business by setting access rights for individuals and prevented trespassers and intruders.
Access control comes in a variety of forms.  You may choose to give your employees magnetic swipe cards and fix entrance doors, and some internal doors, with swipe facilities.  Each new employee could be set their own access rights, dependent upon their job role.  Your access control needs might be best met by key coded keypads fitted throughout your premises.  Employees will be given codes, again dependent upon their access needs and job role.  Remember, that using this method requires your employees to keep their key codes private and not divulge their code to other members of staff.  More advanced forms of access control include biometric recognition systems, which recognise an individual’s fingerprints or eyes.  This type of access control is generally used for high security businesses as the cost of installing such as system can be high.  
Access control can also be used for monitoring your staff, rather than limiting their access rights.  You may want to monitor the start and finish times of your staff, especially if they work irregular shift patterns.  A magnetic swipe access control system can let you see a list of what time members of staff ‘clocked in’ at within seconds.  Using access control for this type of service can increase staff productivity and time keeping.
