Electronic Access Control systems have become the most important aspect of many companies' security measures in the last decade.  Improvements and cost reductions in the microprocessor have made access control affordable for large and small businesses alike, whilst improving systems performance.



Electronic Access Control provides an extremely effective means of granting entry to personnel who need it, whilst maintaining the security of the building.  Access control systems can often reduce costs of guard services and re-keying locksets, while providing a higher level of security.  Access control systems offer the following advantages:



If an access card is lost or when an employee leaves the company the card can be removed from the system database and would no longer provide access to the cardholder.  Unlike keys; if cards are not retrieved the security of a site can still be maintained.  Installation of card access saves the periodic costs of changing locksets and re-distributing keys to each employee



Unique cards are issued for each employee for individual control, accountability, and tracking of activity



Flexible control can be accomplished by allowing each person access to different areas and only at certain times



Employees who have left can be removed from the system.  Once they are removed the employee no longer has access even though they may still have the access card.



An audit trail can be provided for management tracking and reporting of who entered and/or left a particular area at a particular time. Tracking of invalid attempts at entry is also provided in many systems to allow management to determine if employees are attempting to enter areas they are not permitted into; or whether employees are attempting to get into areas at the wrong time.
