Business owners are now very security conscious. People who run retail shops have to worry that both employees and customers could steal from them. Even businesses that are not open to the public have to be concerned about former employees entering the office and harming current workers. Every business has confidential records that they want to protect. Access Control Systems allow businesses to easily control who has access to their business and areas within the business.
Keypads can be placed on exterior doors to control who enters the building. They can also be placed on important doors within the business. These include stockrooms, personnel offices, and cash rooms. Workers can be required to punch numerical codes into a keypad or swipe a badge with a magnetic strip through a reader. This is much more convenient than replacing keys lost by employees. It used to be necessary for the business owner to call a locksmith to change the locks on the door, every time an employee left. Access Control Systems let the business owner just change the code to the keypad. A person’s badge can easily be revoked. Computers can store the information typed or swiped into the access system. It lets the business owner know which employees were in a specific area at a specific time. Because it is possible to have a badge or code stolen, security cameras are often used to confirm the activity in an area. Managers can also use these systems to confirm when employees arrive and leave and monitor how much time they spend away from their desks. Having these systems in place can silently remind employees that they are expected to follow the rules. Home owners who want to ensure that their home is secure are also installing keypads at their front door. If they hire a nanny to watch their children, they just give her a code. When she leaves, they can easily change it. Interior keypads can prevent her from accessing their bedroom or home office.
