24 7 Key Card Access

A quality entry control system Is vital for monitoring and reporting facility traffic.

A Key Card System Is the First Line of Defense

A key card access system gives you control over which employees and others can access certain areas of your property. It denies individuals access to sensitive areas.  Your key card access system can be installed and monitored at a single entrance or numerous locations throughout your facility.

You’ll see the benefits of your key card system the moment installation is complete whether you’re looking to reduce the chance of theft or improve employee safety.

Access Control Systems

Locations that need to limit access to certain areas use access control. Schools, banks, warehouses, and offices rely heavily on them. They combine with other types of controls to create a more secure environment. First, an employee using a key fob is identified using a door. Next, their activity reports into a network log.  Lastly, the door is locked/unlocked with an electric strike without the need of anyone else being onsite.

Even more, our award-winning, monitoring station watches over your system 24 7.

Benefits of Access Control

  • Limit employee and customer access to certain areas of your business
  • Monitor when employees enter and exit the facility and received detailed reports
  • Elevate employee safety
  • Immediately restrict access for former employees
  • Eliminate misplaced or duplicated keys

System administrators can view open and close reports online. Managed access control is a great way to solve lost or stolen key issues. 24 7 key card access combined with video cameras adds a more secure method of door entry. Interior and exterior door readers can be accessed using a badge, key card, or fob.
