What is an access control system? The who, where, and when
Access control systems create a secure environment for your employees, clients, and tenants. It allows you to control the who, where, and when of your property:
Who can enter/exit your property.
Where can each person go.
When can each person access your property.
The who, where, and when of access control can also be defined by different schedules or roles. You can limit movement to certain spaces or time of day. You can create separate access profiles, each with its own defined access areas and schedules.
Why do you need Keyless Entry?
We each pass through multiple "access control points" on a daily basis. Most of these are doors and entrances that operate with mechanical locks and keys. This system of locking and unlocking doors has been effective for hundreds of years. In most cases, it is still the best system for private homes and small businesses.
What if you have a large business or multi-tenant apartment building that needs to be accessed by tens, hundreds, or even thousands of people a day?
What if you need to control the who, where, and when of your building? You do not want every employee or tenant to be able to access every corner of your property. If you need to safeguard highly sensitive materials, you may need to limit access based on each employee's work schedule.
It is not practical to give each person an individual ring of keys for the buildings, floors, and rooms that he or she is allowed to access. It is even less practical to have each person surrender their keys when clocking out of work at the end of a shift! You also run the risk of keys ending up in the wrong hands.
Electronic access control systems are a perfect solution in these instances. The access control system provides complete control over the designated space.
Access control systems allow you to:
Authorize the specific areas each individual can access
Designate access "profiles" remotely via computer or mobile device
Limit access by time of day
Track movement within your property
Receive real-time alerts of suspicious activity
Eliminate the need for keys
Increase security and ease of movement for authorized individuals
Know EXACTLY who accessed each area of your property, when, and for how long
These systems are flexible and can adapt to changing security needs.
Instead of using traditional locks and keys, the access control system operates with codes, badges, proximity card readers, keyfobs, biometric readers, facial recognition or a combination of parameters. Say goodbye to the massive key rings of yesteryear!
How will an access control system impact the appearance of my property?
We understand the concern. You have a beautiful, modern building and do not want unsightly wires and components ruining the aesthetic.
Access control systems can be very complex and contain many parts. However, if they are installed professionally, they are barely noticeable. Each component integrates smoothly into the building and you will barely notice that it is there. Indeed, a properly installed access control system will add a modern, prestigious look to your business.
The access control system truly provides unobtrusive 24/7 protection, 365 days a year.
How much does an access control system cost?
Many business owners are under the impression that access control systems are very expensive. However, based on your needs, the cost can range from several hundred dollars for a single, isolated door with limited capabilities to thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars for a complex, integrated system with many doors and locations.
Many owners of small or medium-sized business believe that they need an expensive, highly complex access control system. This is usually not the case. Often, our clients come to us with requirements that would require a complex, expensive system. After analyzing their security needs, we are able to meet their goals with a smaller, less expensive system that provides the peace of mind they seek.

Safety during emergencies
Regardless of who you ultimately select to install or service your access control system, it is absolutely imperative that you are aware of safety concerns.
There are many regulations in place to ensure that access control systems are properly installed. Access control systems are complex, and if not properly installed, they can prevent escape from a building during an emergency. Make certain that your access control system is complaint with all local fire codes and regulations. It is important that the access control system coordinates with the fire alarm system so that all doors are automatically opened during an emergency.
