Whether you work for a small private business, a multinational corporation with several locations, a local high school, or a state-of-the-art hospital, security will always be a priority. Controlling access to your building, assets, and the individuals inside is one of the best ways to maintain security. A system should be robust and and flexible, scaling as your needs evolve. Avigilon access control solutions are recognized as being some of the best systems available.
An effective access control system has to accomplish three basic, yet extremely important, tasks.
Not only can you use your access control solution to see who is coming and going from your building, but these systems also serve as an active deterrent for criminals. Having visible cameras in place has been proven to prevent arson, vandalism, and burglary.
An access control system is also key in identifying intruders so that you may take appropriate action. After all, intruders come in many forms and not all of those are malicious. It may be that a guest has gotten lost and found themselves inadvertently in a sensitive area, but it is also a possible that someone is intentionally trying to gain unauthorized access. With access control, you have access to real-time information that enables swift decision-making.
Access control should be maintained in different ways, depending on the needs of your company. For example, different security protocols are necessary for a hospital than for an office building or apartment complex; your systems integrator should be well versed in how to adapt the system for your unique requirements.
In some cases, you must control the number of people entering a dangerous area. In some factories and warehouses, industrial accidents can be prevented simply through controlled access to hazardous areas, or during certain times of the day. By setting appropriate protocols for people accessing the building or specific areas, you can provide a more secure environment for everyone in or around your facilities.
As access control technology continues to evolve, there is a variety of solutions to that will serve the needs of your usiness.
