If you have an older access control system or are looking to install one for the first time, there are a lot of factors to consider that might have you putting off the investment in a new system.
To help with your decision, we’ve rounded up the top three reasons we recommend a new access control system, whether you’re looking for your personal home or a large commercial complex.
Access control systems are more convenient than ever. The latest models have entry options ranging from traditional keypads to intuitive touch screens, plus you can grant access remotely via app, text, voice, keypad, directory call, or remote devices.
They’re also more reliable and secure. Thanks to smart technology, many systems can provide real-time activity tracking and alerts, letting you know when active codes are being overused and when inactive codes are being attempted. You’ll also have an additional layer of defense thanks to information safeguards and cloud-based security.
And they have more quality connectivity options. Depending on the model, an access control system can be set up using POTS (telephone lines), DSL, wired high-speed, cellular, or Wi-Fi connections. All of which will provide clear call quality without additional phone line charges. “But what if my internet goes down?” Don’t worry; newer systems have local system memory that will still allow entry!
