Top 5 Benefits of Electronic Access Control

The purpose of electronic access control is to grant authorized access to the appropriate personnel and keep everyone else out. This protects sensitive areas of your building from theft and data breaches and keeps your employees safe. In short, access control enhances the way you protect your facility, people, and assets.

Allegiance Security Integration provides electronic access control services to commercial, industrial, educational, federal, and military organizations in the Washington, DC area. To learn more, contact us online today!

What Are the Benefits of Electronic Access Control?

The benefits of access control can save you money or even your life. Here’s what you can expect.

1. Implement the System with Ease

Installing electronic access control is a seamless process. Assigning access to certain areas of your building is easy and automatic with a system that leverages your existing employee demographic data. Of course, you can enter data manually as well to customize authorized access exactly the way you want.

As for obtaining access to secure areas, your employees can use an authorized credential (like a proximity reader, pin code reader, or biometric reader, for example) for identification, access control, time and attendance tracking, and other applications.

2. Deter Criminals at Various Access Points

Most criminals look for opportunities with little risk and high reward. With an effective access control system, you eliminate the possibility of an easy entry, helping to reduce the overall risk of theft and vandalism. Access control lets you secure various access points in your building, including:

  • Primary entry and exit points
  • Build perimeters
  • Access ramps
  • Tarmacs
  • Parking garages
  • Building departments
  • Elevators
  • Closets
  • Networks and workstations

You can create individual settings for each employee and control access to secure areas based on the day, time, and other changing factors. You can also completely revoke access in the case of lost or stolen credentials, if necessary.

3. Reduce Employee Theft

Working in isolation without supervision is a major contributing factor to employee theft and fraud. Electronic access control lets you monitor who enters which areas and when. If you have a theft or data breach issue, you can easily change access levels while an investigation is underway. You can also set up alerts to find out if someone attempts to access an area when their permission has been revoked.

4. Protect Secure Data

Physical theft is obviously an issue, but so is the potential for a data breach. That’s why you should implement electronic access control for servers and data rooms. You can even require an access credential to log into networks and workstations to help protect any secure employee and client data.

5. Enjoy Cloud Access

Not all access control systems are based in the cloud, but the solutions available from ASI certainly are. A cloud-hosted server provides the additional benefit of remote access, allowing you to view and make changes to the system from anywhere with an internet connection. Change access levels, temporarily unlock doors for trusted vendors or suppliers, add or remove credentials, and print security reports, all without having to visit your office and log into the internal system.

Cloud-based electronic access control also decreases equipment and maintenance costs by eliminating the need to purchase a dedicated server, pay license fees, and arrange software update agreements. A cloud-hosted server—complete with IT support, automatic updates, and data backups—are all yours for a small monthly fee.
