Take control of your site access with a 1st Choice Access Control System
All businesses, whether small, medium or large, have assets that need to be protected from theft. There is also the issue of protecting staff and their property during working hours.
Unfortunately, keeping your company ‘under lock and key’ isn’t as secure as it used to be. Traditional keys are vulnerable; they can be lost or stolen, or even copied without consent, and the inconvenience and expense of changing locks and re-issuing keys can be considerable. Plus, with best intentions, it’s common in buildings that are secured by locks and keys for doors to be left unlocked all day. This opens up the possibility of opportunist theft and malicious damage.
Electronic access control provides a far more efficient and convenient way of securing your building and assets, and it means that you will never have to change a lock again. Tokens are issued to allow access through controlled doors, and are easily barred from the system entirely if lost, stolen or kept by staff who leave your employ. Doors controlled by an access control system will automatically lock once closed, and anyone without a PIN or access token will be unable to enter. If necessary, for convenience, doors can be set to unlock for designated timeframes.
Access control systems can also offer flexible control over the access rights of specific employees. For example, main doors can be accessible for all staff, but access to internal areas, such as important offices, rooms containing confidential documents, and areas where safety concerns limit access can be restricted to those who have a specific need to be there. Access may also be restricted by time, only granting access to particular users at certain times of day or night.
