Traditional keys and locks have previously regulated entrance to buildings. Now, there are better alternatives, and access control is at the top of the list. Plus, access control is one of the best ways to manage access to your commercial building. However, selecting the ideal access control system for your commercial business can be challenging. Keep reading below to learn how FiberPlus can help you determine the best commercial building access control system.
What’s the Commercial Access Control System?
When considering a commercial keyless entry system, businesses are usually provided two alternatives: on-premise or cloud-based building access control systems. However, cloud computing has been common as technology is constantly changing. So, more businesses are selecting building entry systems that utilize this new technology. Overall, what’s the difference between both commercial building access control systems?
On-Premise Access Control
This particular solution might require an onsite computer server to access and perform the access control software. A corporation purchases a license that allows them to operate the necessary hardware and software on its local servers. Plus, they are responsible for maintaining those servers. Additionally, many companies pick these systems when they want to control all aspects of the system.
Since all software and hardware are installed on-site, they can configure the system to satisfy their needs. In fact, this is a significant benefit for many companies. This may be the ideal access control system for your commercial business because it doesn’t involve a third party. The organization can manage its security and data storage, leading to fewer data leaving the system.
Cloud-Based Access Control
In contrast, cloud-based access control systems operate on a network of remote servers via the Internet. This approach eliminates the need for a professional to maintain them and the requirement for each location’s own server. This service provider also provides customers a membership fee, including network server monitoring and supervision, 24-hour troubleshooting, information security, performance tests, and backup recovery. Since this cloud-based dashboard is accessible 24/7, this is the ideal access control system for your commercial business because it permits you to accept/deny access for visitors or employees without being physically present.
