We here at Sonitrol often use the phrase "access control," but what do those key words really mean? Access Control serves as an umbrella term for a number of services that allow for the restriction and monitoring of entry into a controlled area.
This limitation is accomplished by placing an electronic locking device in an interior or exterior door and requiring a credential (usually a card or key fob) from a user to proceed.
Often you'll find keypads, proximity card readers or card swipe readers mounted next to an entry point. Throughout the entire network, Sonitrol has more than 94,000 managed access doors!
Access control is not just about restricting entry to a location; systems can be uniquely designed to protect elements specific to your business. These are just a few things that you can control :
- Creating set times for required access
and for free access. Employees are required to
use a card to get in the building after
hours; visitors and employees can
enter and exit the building freely during
- Limiting who has access. Only managers
and executive-level employees have
access to the office before the work
- Limiting the flow of traffic to certain
areas. Only IT directors can access
server rooms between certain hours.
- Authorizing entry to multiple buildings
or offices. Eliminating the need for
multiple cards and keys by protecting
several branches throughout the
area with Sonitrol.
Advantages of Access Control Systems:
- Replacing mechanical locks and keys with electronic locks, badges, cards or readers
- Elimination of the expense of re-keying or changing locks when an employee leaves
- Fewer false alarms
