The Right Tech for The Right Business: Choose Your Access Control System
How to Determine the Perfect Access Control System for Your Business
Access control is essential for any comprehensive security system, but not every business will benefit from the same technology solutions.
At ASAP Security Services, we have been offering our clients in Belton, TX, access control solutions since 1947. We are at the forefront of innovation, and have seen our industry transition from traditional locks and keys to biometric scans and keypads.
To maximize protection for your business, you need an access control system tailored to your needs and optimized for the size and scope of your company. Here are some tips to help you determine the perfect access control system and solutions for your company. Keep reading below!
Small and Mid-Sized Companies
To get started, you will need the right brands to track, manage, and monitor access to your business.
HID provides PIN and keycard systems ideal for smaller and mid-sized companies. Either of these two systems includes remote access functions like setting or removing authorization, which keep track of access through automatically generated digital logs.
S2 Security, another of our brand partners, offers access control solutions like geofencing and video management systems. These let businesses manage not only access to their property but also send out mass notifications in case of emergency.
An added advantage of S2’s line of solutions is that they work with your existing IP and analog cameras, simplifying any future system migration process. This allows your company to gradually shift from its current access control system to a newer, better alternative.
Large Companies and Institutions
For larger companies and institutions, additional access control features are necessary to properly secure an entire space.
Brands like Avigilon, Bosch, and Genetec specialize in advanced security systems, offering an open architecture, easy integration, and cloud-based solutions. These include live system monitoring, video analytics, and seamless scalability.
Instead of PINs and access cards, these access control systems rely on biometric identification tools, such as fingerprint or facial recognition. As a result, they are highly accurate and optimize convenience by eliminating the need to reset PINs or issue new cards.
Security System Integration
Access control works best when fully integrated with video surveillance and security systems. As a system increases in complexity, it becomes necessary to hire professionals to properly design, install, and monitor access activity, which is where we come in.
At ASAP Security Services, we have experience in projects ranging from small office spaces to fire and police stations, city halls, libraries, and schools. We are confident that our industry knowledge will lead us to create the best solution for your business as well.
