An access control system is a sophisticated technology that helps you control who comes in and out of your gate. Devices can vary but most involve some version of transmitters, card readers, keypads, timers, and telephone systems. It’s an essential investment in the security of your business that’s also highly convenient and accessible when you need it to be.
Even a simple keypad or transmitter makes it not only simpler for you to access but downright impossible for thieves.
With the traditional key or lock for a garage door, thieves can pick the lock or otherwise break the door open. Keypads meanwhile have thousands of combinations that are nearly impossible to pick. A transmitter is specific only to that garage door. Both are highly secure.
Keeping a Record
The beauty of an access control system is you have a very detailed record of anyone who accesses the building and when. You can make codes and cards identity specific so you always know who’s using the system and when.
As a homeowner, you might consider a remote access control system for an outside gate. This way, anyone wanting access would have to first telephone you before accessing the property. This can be key for security.
