Electronic card readers enable management and office personnel to easily control access to their facility. An electronic user database provides more security than physical keys and means that locks will never need to be changed. If a keycard is lost or an employee no longer needs access rights, the card information can be immediately deleted from the database. Electronic keys are very difficult to duplicate and new cards can be promptly issued when necessary.
Electronic access can be customized for every user and will set access rights that are specific to individual doors and times of the day. Customization minimizes risks by granting the site access that is appropriate for each user. Every entry is logged, creating a valuable tool for any investigations of vandalism, unauthorized access, or theft. Activity logging can also be useful for tracking response times or monitoring internal technical activities.
