Do you need to secure your office spaces more effectively? Are accurate records required of staff and visitors accessing a particular site or area within it? If the answer is yes then it may be worth considering one of the access control solutions that Ecl-ips can offer.
In a busy office building or industrial complex knowing who is coming in and out and whether they are authorised to have access could be a difficult exercise. You do not want to have to check everyone manually and you also do not want to have lots of people carrying keys but some areas do need to be kept locked and secure.
This is why electronic access control systems have become so important. With access control, each staff member, or visitor, is issued with one token or card to gain access through any door, gate or barrier. They simply present their token at a reader and access is permitted or denied, as appropriate. There is no need to change locks if someone loses their token.
Access control systems mean that you can restrict areas of your site just to certain individuals, or just provide access at specific times. Meanwhile the control of access can be carried out via a PC or a mobile device. This control means that you can create a record of who is in a building or area, times that they entered and also a record if a door is forced.
Additionally, you can link the access control system to your emergency alarms and in an incident like a fire when staff need to evacuate it will also create a roll call report, telling you who was in the building when the alarm went off.
To improve security further you can link your CCTV footage directly to your access control system. Once your CCTV and access control are working together, you only have to manage one piece of software.
