Want to Have a More Secure Business? Here’s How!

How much traffic do you have in your business each day? Whether you manage a retail store, a restaurant, or an office building in Napa Valley, CA, it’s likely your doors open and close more times than you can count! If you’re concerned about security, it’s not easy to monitor everyone who enters your building – unless you have an access control system. You’ll always feel safe and secure with this smart security system.

Unlike older access control products, the newest ones are technologically advanced. There are many ways to implement the system, from PIN codes and keycards to convenient key fobs and futuristic biometric security. Best of all, remote access control lets you manage everything from your office, home, or miles away. Read our blog to learn more about several smart access control solutions.

Who Needs a Key?

In a world of smart technology, using a key to unlock your doors has become nearly obsolete. Many luxury homes and businesses use a keyless entry system. That doesn’t mean you keep your doors unlocked. Instead, employees enter your doors using keycards (like a credit card) or key fobs (a small device that’s about the size of a coin). Then, when they approach the door, they simply wave the device at a scanner, and the door unlocks. No need for keys or security guards.

Key fobs and cards are also useful for interior spaces. For instance, if you have executive offices on the top floor, you can program the doors to unlock for authorized personnel. You can also use remote access security to restrict access to your office from a remote location – any time day or night. Simply click an icon on your computer or a mobile building automation device to lock down an area.

 

Type in Your PIN Code

Perhaps a PIN-code access control system is better for your business. After all, everybody forgets their keys, keycards, or key fobs at some point. When your business is protected with a PIN-code system, you’ll never worry about losing a “key.” Each employee is assigned a specific PIN code to unlock doors.

In addition, if an employee forgets their code, it’s free and easy to reset it. Because you have a remote access security system, one phone call takes care of it. Within a few minutes, your employee can enter the building using a new code. Also, with a PIN-code system, you’ll never worry about an unauthorized person using a lost key fob or keycard to enter your building.

 

Biometric Access for High Security

Keypads, key fobs, or PIN pads are perfect for most businesses. However, some commercial buildings require even more security. Biometric access uses fingerprint pads, retinal scans, or facial recognition to permit entry into your business. This system is practically foolproof. You won’t be concerned about someone sharing access to the building or an unrestricted area due to a borrowed keycard or PIN code.

The system compares a live scan with one in your database. So, you’ll know for certain who accessed what area of the building and when. These advanced and dependable access control systems can be integrated with your current building’s smart system. Then you can remotely monitor and manage everything from any location. The commercial electricians and building automation experts at Summit Technology Group can set up a state-of-the-art system for you.

 

Protect Yourself During the Holidays

As the holidays approach, you’ll likely have more packages delivered to your door. Also, fewer people may be around to pick them up since your employees may be taking time off or you may be away from home. A security system with surveillance cameras ensures that all eyes are on your property – and you’re alerted of any unusual activity, so you can respond accordingly.
