Do you know who is coming into your building? This might seem like a silly question, but when you think about it, what is preventing someone who isn’t an employee from entering your Aurora, Elgin, Rockford, Schaumburg, Northbrook, Vernon Hills, or surrounding area building? Maybe they don’t have any malicious intent, but you don’t know that, and do you really want to take that chance? This is why more and more businesses are turning to access control for their buildings, and Network Technology Innovations can provide you with the latest in access control.
What Is Access Control?
Access control secures your building and restricts entrance to only those you allow. There are a variety of ways to accomplish this, including key fobs, key cards, access codes, biometrics, or other options. Options can be set up with the front door of the building you are in, and also for other areas in the building. For example, if you have servers on-site in your building, you only want certain people to have access to that area. You can control access to this space to minimize who has access, which helps to prevent unwanted negative actions from happening.
Why Use Access Control?
You may be wondering if implementing access control to your building and/or other areas of your building is worth the effort. There are several important benefits to having an access control system. The first of these is that you will no longer have any undetected activity. The more employees you have, the less likely it is that you will recognize those people who should be there and those who shouldn’t be there. By implementing access control, you will help to ensure that only employees are in the building. Anyone else who isn’t an employee needs to have a reason to be there, and you will likely have visitors wear a badge to indicate to everyone that they are a visitor.
With this measure of control at your main entrance doors, it also makes your building safer. By keeping other people out who shouldn’t be there, you are reducing the odds of theft, damage, or other criminal behaviors from non-employees. A safe environment is one that employees appreciate. You can also control when employees are allowed to be in the building as well. Most employees will likely only need to be in the building during daylight hours. There are only a few employees that will need to have 24/7 access to the building, and the rest can be locked out outside of normal business hours for the building.
Keeping you, your employees and your business safe in Aurora, Elgin, Rockford, Schaumburg, Northbrook, Vernon Hills, and the surrounding areas is important, and Network Technology Innovations is ready to help secure your building and business.
