Access control systems are an important and integral element of security systems to protect property, people and resources. Door access control systems determine who is authorized to enter a property or a restricted area within a property and provide various techniques to manage and control access.

Access control security is used in many different types of building, including campuses, office blocks, commercial buildings, multi-tenant apartment buildings, industrial complexes, condos, gated communities, schools and colleges, airports, stadiums, and government buildings.

Why Access Control Security Is Important
In short, replacing traditional locks and keys with electronic security and access control strengthens security. Traditional locks have many drawbacks, including management challenges, lack of audit trails and the fact that metal keys are easily lost, stolen and copied.

A commercial access control system is important at building entrances, where the system provides convenient access for employees, residents or other occupants, while preventing intruders or unauthorized individuals from entering. Within a building, access security protects areas where entry must be restricted by only allowing users with the right credentials to enter. In an office block, this might apply to server rooms or spaces where confidential data is stored. In a multifamily residential complex, the access security system might limit access to resident-only facilities such as gyms or mail rooms.

A door access control system also provides security teams with important information on all entry activities. This can provide useful evidence in the event of an incident or suspicious activity.

Getting the Best Access Control
System for Your Building

To gain full benefit from security access control, it’s important to plan the solution carefully by assessing vulnerabilities and access requirements throughout the building. A professional security system installer can provide advice and guidance on the most appropriate solution for different areas of the building and prepare detailed installation plans. Security specialists can also recommend integration opportunities to ensure the system forms part of a holistic solution for building security and management.

On-Premise Or Cloud-Based?

It’s important to weigh the pros and cons of a cloud-based vs. on-premise access control system before investing in new technology. If you have an on-prem solution, some providers now offer remote capabilities and hybrid cloud deployments to make management more flexible.

Your challenges are complex, but your security shouldn’t be. The Avigilon security suite is built with simplicity in mind, creating an effortless user experience that is intuitive and innovative.
