What Is Access Control?
So, what is an access control system, and why is it so crucial for your business’ security? Whether you run a bustling restaurant, clothing store, or a fast-paced office, who is coming in and out of your building is of your concern.
An access control system makes it easy and efficient to monitor, check, and decide who is allowed in and out around the clock. This solution takes the standard lock-and-key system to the modern age, letting you manage access across a variety of smart devices and all through a centralized system.
Take a look below to learn about two different types of access control systems and to figure out which one is best for your business.
Avigilon System Features
With an Avigilon access control system, you can bring security to a small business or a large company. There are two main systems from Avigilon to choose from depending on which size your business is, and both are easy to use and browser-based – meaning there is no lengthy software installation involved at all.
The first Avigilon system offered is the Access Control Manager. This one is designed for enterprise-level companies, giving you a scalable security solution and a constant peace of mind. Using the Avigilon Control Center video platform, your system will verify who is at the door or building entrance and utilize an expansive database and directory to identify who it is and if you’ve determined they're allowed in or not.
The accompanying Bosch alarm panels and wireless locks from Allegion and ASSA ABLOY ensure that your company building remains secured and closed off to any unwanted guests and will sound off if an intruder tries to make their way in.
The second Avigilon system offered is the ACM Embedded Controller. This entry-level system is for smaller businesses and makes it a breeze to set up and secure your company with zero hassle. An automatic configuration feature saves time and makes it simple to set up your doors, entrances, inputs, and outputs after your interface panels and screens are installed.
Managing this access control system is easy; operate from a tablet or other smart device through the internet and have the control over who comes in and when in the power of your hands.
CyberLock System Solutions
A CyberLock access control system takes things back to the basic lock-and-key– but now as an advanced solution. With programmable smart keys and cylinders, doors are not the only spaces where access control can be utilized.
Now you can use your system on company entry gates, shipping containers outside your store, and trucks and vehicles. These access points will not only monitor who enters your building, but also other locations that are significantly important to the overall safety of your commercial space.
CyberLock is a cost-effective choice, with no wiring or cabling installation required. The smart keys’ batteries power the cylinders, meaning you won’t need to deal with installing an expensive wired system.
Managing these smart keys is easy as well. If a key is lost, you can deactivate it before it ends up in the wrong hands. It’s just as simple to change which keys have access where and when. Once you upload access privileges and schedules to a key’s audit trail, you can view and customize it depending on any changes that need to be made down the line.
Your employees will also have to update their keys frequently, or they will expire and not work. This keeps your system running securely without any slips in the process.
Depending on your business’ size, Avigilon has an access controlsystem for you. Or if you’re looking to bring a robustlock-and-key setup to your company, then CyberLock is both a smart and cost-effective choice. Our team at Insight Automation can help you choose and install the system that best fits your business’ needs.
