When to Upgrade Your Access Control System Technology

It may be time to upgrade your access control technology to something more reliable and efficient.

Any commercial, government, or private facility requires reliable security. As those facilities grow, so do their security needs. If your company doesn’t have an access control system in place or has one that is repeatedly failing you, it is time to explore better options. An access control system run on a fiber-optic network can offer more reliability and faster service. This ensures no delays in your business, as well as no need to sacrifice your security. If you have experienced any of the following situations, it’s an excellent time to upgrade your access control system technology. 

Your Facility Is Experiencing Rapid Growth

If your company is hiring as many as three to ten new employees each month, you have likely outgrown your current security system. Relying on an older system may mean waiting for a locksmith or the creation of new key cards so these new employees can access the building. Modern access control system technology can allow you to quickly onboard new employees and provide them with the individualized access they require, without waiting for external service. 

Your Current System Is Often Inefficient

If every employee needs to find appropriate keys, keep track of key cards, or keep the cards in excellent condition just to access the facility, your security system is not running as efficiently as it could. If you are still relying on keys, this can be particularly inefficient. When employees require several different keys for different rooms, this can become quite unruly. Additionally, keys can easily be lost, stolen, or copied, which can put your entire facility at risk. 

You Have Experienced a Break-In

If someone has broken into your facility and stolen company property, it can be challenging to find the person or people at fault. If your facility is without a CCTV system with modern fiber technology, you may not have any kind of evidence to use to find the culprit. Additionally, if you’re using a lock-and-key security system, someone may have left doors unlocked or copied a key without company knowledge. However, without advanced access control system technology, there is no easy way to discover the gaps in your security system or the untrustworthy employees. 

You’re Ready to Innovate

If you’re eager to improve your office technology, this should include your security technology as well. Access control systems are adaptable as much as any other technology and are always an excellent investment for your company’s future. Upgrading your access control technology before you suffer a significant break-in or loss will help you immensely.
