Card Access Control System:
Generally defined, a card access system is a type of security system which enables you to be able to access doors electronically via a key card as opposed to a more traditional type of key.
Perhaps one of the biggest, yet least known, facts about this type of system is that installing it will save you both money and time, and furthermore, a card access system will also allow for much easier access management while, at the same time, increasing facility security wherever the system itself may be installed.
Here are five of the main advantages when it comes to having a card access system installed.
*Perhaps one of the biggest advantages regarding this type of system is that employees won’t have to worry about having to memorize any kind of a PIN number. This is because card access systems do not require any kind of a keypad that require users to enter any kind of a number each and every time they want to obtain access to a door. As long as you remember to keep your card in your possession at all times, you will have nothing to worry about.
*Another main advantage regarding a card access system is that if the need arises, you will be able to deny access for a key that you’ve given out without actually having to ask that the key be returned to you. While it’s always more convenient to change a lock as opposed to changing a key, when it comes to card access systems, it costs nothing but a small amount of time to have someone make a small change in the system so that access for a specific key card will be denied.
*One other main advantage when it comes to card access systems is that you will never have to worry about any lost keys ending up into the hands of those who shouldn’t actually have them. This means that in the event a card for your access system were to end up somehow getting lost, stolen, etc., you will be able to simply deactivate the card itself until it is found. Alternatively, you can also choose to leave the card itself deactivated when you replace the lost card with a brand new one.
*Another great advantage of card access systems is that it is practically impossible for anyone to copy the types of cards that are used with these specific systems. While more traditional keys are able to be cut and copied at places such as grocery and department stores, the electronics that are contained within the cards for access control systems cannot be.
*One other great advantage of card access systems is that you will be able to issue a brand new card that allows access to multiple doors in a matter of minutes. This means that if you were to hire a new employee or if an existing card ends up wearing out or breaking, you can simply establish and issue a brand new one all with the same access if the employee had access previously, as well as without all of the issues regarding determining which specific doors they should be permitted to access again.
