Benefits of Buying an Access Control System

Benefits of Buying an Access Control System

An access control system uses technology to regulate who comes in and who goes out of your gate. Devices used in access control systems include transmitters, card readers, keypads, timers, and telephone systems.

When you buy an access control system, you’re making an essential investment in your home or business’ security.

Reasons to Get an Access Control System for Your Garage Door

Buying a simple access control device like a keypad or transmitter makes it safe and convenient to open your garage door.

When you use a lock and key to secure your garage, thieves have ways to pick or break the door open. Meanwhile, a keypad code has thousands of possible combinations to crack. Transmitters have a sensor inside the garage that stays out of harm’s way.

Plus, if you lose your keys, you can enter a code into the keypad or press the transmitter button.

Should I Get an Access Control System for My Entry Gate?

Homeowners who want ultimate security install entry gates to protect their properties. They come with basic access control systems so you don’t have to get in and out of your vehicle every time you want to enter the gate. Instead, you use a transmitter remote to close and open it.

However, you can install advanced technology to make your home even safer. For example, a telephone entry system lets you talk to anyone who tries to enter before you let them in. Sophisticated technology like fingerprint scanners ensures an extra layer of security.

Is It Worth Buying an Access Control System for My Business?

When you consider investing in an access control system for your business, you have to keep your bottom line in mind. After all, you want to make back the amount spent on the system over time. Just as they do for homes, access control systems increase convenience and security for businesses. Keycard and fingerprint systems track who passes through your gate and give only the right people access to an area.

You can create a record of who passes through your property at any given time, too. And for maximum security, you can determine which cards work with the system and which cards should get deactivated. Advanced access control systems especially help residential communities and companies that manage sensitive materials like medicine.

How are Commercial Garage Doors Different than Residential Models?

How are commercial garage doors different than the residential models? Frequency of use is probably the biggest difference; whereas a residential garage doors may be raised and lowered a few times a day, commercial overhead doors may open and close dozens of times in just an hour. Commercial doors may also function as a load-in point for trucks, new equipment and tools. These doors are vital to day-to-day operations of a business, so the commercial operators powering these entrance points need to function reliably and safely at all times.

Reserve Collection Limited Edition SeriesWith the increase in operations and the larger, heavier size of commercial doors, safety features become that much more important. Photo-sensors or a monitored sensing edge perform beyond basic constant contact-to-close operation. Commercial-rated photoelectric sensors ensuring the door stops when people or vehicles cross the sensors’ path. This alleviates potential harm or injury to facility employees, guests, equipment or materials that might be crossing under a moving, heavy commercial door.
