Of course you want customers and visitors to feel welcome, but you want to avoid letting in unauthorized persons or potential problem-makers. In almost all cases, government institutions already use access control. But we also increasingly see those smaller institutions and small and medium-sized enterprises are using access control systems. Due to the rise of the smartphone, there are now extensive management options and it is even possible to open a door remotely via your mobile phone. Not everyone needs to be able to open doors remotely, so an ordinary smartphone user can only open the lock if he is near the door.
Be well informed
Nowadays there are many providers of access control systems and smart door locks, but with which system do you make the right choice? Fear of making the wrong choice or due to ignorance, the choice of a mechanical locking system with keys is still often the first choice of a building manager or building owner. And that is of course an outdated choice in the long term because if you lose a key for financial reasons, you will not immediately replace the entire locking system. Fortunately, in recent years, more and more brands have responded to this and the threshold for the first purchase of the system is getting smaller. In the article below we tell you almost all the basic information in a first step to choosing an access control system that will make you happy. The digital door entry systems are right there for you now. You can opt for the same.
Modern access control systems
Where previously access control systems were cumbersome and expensive, access control is now user-friendly and intuitive to use. That used to be different. Card readers all had to be cabled and often one had to deal with complicated software that was just doo Access control software one person could be managed. Why? Because access control software was complicated and far too technical. In addition, the access control software was installed locally. Opening a door remotely with, for example, a mobile phone was not included. Nowadays the software limitations of the past have been solved and the access control software is cloud based so that no software installations are required locally.
The advantages of access control
The main advantages of a good access control system are:
- Access control: You can determine exactly who can enter when
- No costs in case of loss of keys: Loss of keys no longer means that you have to replace all locks, you simply remove the access control cards and tags in the access control software
- Ease of use for yourself, your customers and your employees
- Less chance of internal fraud by staff and visitors
If the customer still wants to run a system in their own environment, for example on their own computer or server, a web-based system is certainly recommended. A web-based access control system can be accessed through a web browser such as Safari, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer. People who are involved in setting the access rights of different users have fewer rights in the software than, for example, a system administrator. Any manager can make changes to the system at any location. In the video below we tell you about the cloud based access control system.
