What are Access Control Systems? And where can I find access control in Ipswich or Felixstowe?
Access control is a form of modern locks which have several advantages over traditional locks. Access control systems require that you type in a code in order to unlock the door. It can also be set up for visitors to ring through to a receptionist who can then decide whether to unlock the door. There are many features and options, so be sure to discuss your needs with the locksmith who is selling and installing the system to make sure you choose a system which fits your needs.
Why use access control systems instead of traditional locks?
Access control systems – in particular Paxton access control systems – have several advantages over traditional locks:
- No more losing the key! With traditional locks, if you lose the key, you would then have to change your locks to avoid the chance of someone finding the key and breaking into your home or business. However, with access control systems, you can simply reset the codes, so that whoever previously had access now no longer has access.
- Give varied level of access to multiple people. You can stay in total control by giving yourself master access, while giving employees or friends a lower level of access. This means that you have admin powers such as being able to change access codes, whereas they do not (for example).
- Track who opens what and when. By giving different codes to different people, you can track who opens what and when.
- Remote opening. Not sure whether you should let someone in? Why not set up a CCTV camera at the door, then have the system ring through to your receptionist (or home) each time someone is there, then you can decide whether or not you want to ‘buzz them in’.
- Grouping – which enables the partitioning of sites. In other words, you can give access to different areas with different codes. This is ideal for sites which have multiple different areas for which you require different levels of access.
