Electronic Access Control Keys

Jan 29, 2008
If you are looking for a key to Crime Prevention it's in electronic access control systems. Our modern society is a world of locks and keys. Home security, office security, apartments, and office space - the list goes on, but what's known for certain comprehensive key management is the weak link.

Almost every person in modern day society will be packing a keychain that's got more than just one or two keys. House keys, garage keys, office keys, and car keys are rattling around the bottom of our pockets and in our purses.

Although we feel safe, it's a false security that leads too often to lost and stolen keys, which is another weakness in our modern security. The bottom line is keys really are not a secure way of keeping things safe and secure.

Each year hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent to re-key buildings because a set of keys was lost or an employee was let go and did not return their keys.

Worse yet, have you ever stopped to wonder just how many master keys have been issued for your building? Can you confidently state that there have been no keys copied by employees that may not be quite as ethical as you? Does your building have employees coming and going at strange hours? Is your building ever left unlocked? There are so many things that can happen that can jeopardize your building's security.

Perhaps the time has come for the installation of electronic access control systems. In fact, if you want true security and real peace of mind there is no other opportunity.

It's time to take back the keys and take back your power for security. An electronic access control system will let you take back that power. The capabilities of electronic access control systems can vary a great deal. They can be a single door with a stand-alone system, which lets you enter the door with a keypad, to large systems that use thousands of card readers.

There are some basic things that all electronic access control systems have in common. All of them control who goes where within a company by requiring the insertion of the card in the card reader or by use of a keypad. At any given moment access can be changed or completely denied to one or many employees.

There are a handful of manufacturers that provide a one to four door keypad solution and some of the top end burglar alarm systems also have the ability to control up to four doors. Some will offer access based on one individual while others may be able to allow access based on more than one person entering.

Low to mid price range PC solutions can provide control for up to thirty-two doors and for thousands of individual users perfect if you are looking for keyless entry. Most of these are Windows based systems. Some in this range may have the ability for monitored alarms but you will likely have to step up a bit in price range.

You might find yourself having to move up into the next price range if you require a highly sophisticated system. Be sure to consult with your security specialist.

Electronic access control systems are the locking system of the future. Why not get ahead of the rush and get peace of mind.
