The Inside Scoop on Access Control Systems
Access control systems have gained popularity in recent years, as it is more important than ever for businesses to protect their employees and increase confidentiality where necessary. Allow us to highlight several frequently asked questions about access control systems:
How do access control systems work?
Once the access control system is installed, the entry to which the access control system has been linked is essentially locked. The system will only unlock this entry when authorized personnel have completed certain steps to unlock it, such as using a key card, fingerprint, facial recognition, and others.
Can access control systems be customized?
Yes, more than providing a highly technical lock to a door, businesses can customize their access control system to record who entered (or failed to enter) the building, authorize certain personnel at certain times to access the building, deactivate key cards remotely, and more.
Where can an access control system be installed?
A building’s doors may be the first logical placement of an access control system. But, there are many more places throughout a building that may require this level of security. For example, your company can request that the access control system is installed for elevators, parking lot entrances, gates, garage doors, and more.
What happens if the power goes out?
Access control systems have a backup power supply that will be triggered immediately in the event that there is a power outage. If there is an event such as a natural disaster that causes your main source of power to be unavailable for an extended period of time, physical keys may be necessary.
