    What is an Access Control System?

    An access control system is a security system that can restrict access to certain areas to only those who have the required access card to enter. It’s important to differentiate the difference between a physical access control system (like the one we’re talking about here) and a digital one, which restrict access to virtual spaces, such as online or on a network.

    How do I install an Access Control System?

    The first step will be to decide why you want an access control system, and what you want it to achieve. Does it need to be able to allow access to certain people at certain times? Does it need to be able to track who enters what space when? Plus, you’ll also need to ask yourself what your budget will be.

    Once you’ve decided this, you can start looking for the right access control system for you. Systems come in varying prices, so it could be worth doing your research to find one that best suits your needs and budget.

    Next, unless you happen to be experienced in the installation of security systems yourself, you’ll probably need to find an expert who can install the system for you. Again, it’s worth doing your research on this one, especially if you struggled with the previous step, as they could help you find the right system for you.

    Last comes the installation and setup phase. The professionals you chose will be able to design the system, install it, and then set it up so that it’s ready to go for you to use. From there, all there is to do is to monitor the system and make sure it’s working as planned.

    Why should I get Access Control?

    While many people will prefer the simplicity of an old fashioned lock and key, there are several benefits that having an access control system can bring you. These include:

    • Keys are easily replaceable – unlike physical keys, which require you to get a key cut, or even change locks if you’ve lost all of them, digital keys can be made quickly and securely.
    • You can monitor access – with each person having their own individual key card, the system can monitor who used their keys when, allowing for more secure surveillance.
    • They’re easy to carry – unlike old fashioned keys, where you need a different key for each lock, key cards can be used for as many different access points as you want.
    • You can manage access – using the system, you can grant permissions as you please, meaning that you can choose who has access to which areas, and under what conditions.
