Why is Access Control Important?

20 Apr 2022

Access control is all about controlling who can access a physical location and when. In most cases, these systems are electronic with a system of identification e.g. a card, or biometrics and a physical barrier such as a door or gate. High-level security systems include a mix of CCTV cameras, intruder alarms and identification systems that can be installed as part of any existing building or integrated into a new project from the beginning.


High-security access control systems have several advantages over mechanical keys: 

Access control systems allow easy control over who has access to any given location. 
Safety of employees, customers and equipment is ensured. 
Managers can easily update or change any individual’s level of access at any time.
Creates an audit trail to easily see who enters or exits a location at any given time.
No more lost keys mean locks do not have to be replaced should someone lose their key, cards can be remotely deactivated at any time.
