4 Indicators You’re in Need of a New Access Control System

Access Control

Is your facility in need of a new access control system? There are 4 telltale signs.

As any government or commercial entity grows, their security needs expand as well. Some companies may not have access control systems at all, or just in need of an upgrade, but either way there are some telltale signs that you need to take a better approach to access control security. If your business is experiencing any of the following four difficulties, it may just be time to invest in a conversation with a qualified security professional and discuss some new access control measures.

1. You’re Experiencing Rapid Growth

If your company is on the steady track to accelerated growth, meaning hiring between 3 to 10 employees per month, this is a good sign you’ve likely outgrown your current system. An older system—or a lack thereof—means waiting around for locksmiths so you can onboard new employees, or waiting for key cards so they can get into their own office. A modern access control system will allow you to quickly and intuitively onboard new employees and get them where they need to be without external services.

2. You’re Experiencing Inefficiencies

If every employee has to fiddle with a keychain for a few minutes a day just to get where they’re going, this is a sign that you’re not doing things as efficiently as you could be. Accessing a facility shouldn’t be any more difficult than it needs to be, and in the case of having too many keys, the right security system can make traditional lock and key systems outdated.

3. You’ve Had a Break In

In the instance that someone breaks in and company property is stolen, it can sometimes be hard to determine who is at fault. This is especially true if the company is without a commercial grade CCTV system. Still, with a traditional lock and key based system, it can be unclear of who left doors unlocked or if someone copied a key without company knowledge. All of this confusion and frustration points to one thing: your current security system isn’t working for you.

4. You Want to Innovate

Companies that are on the cutting edge of technology, equipped with the latest 3D printers and brand-new computers, should also innovate when it comes to their office security. Access control systems are adaptable to new needs, making them a solid investment for the future. Getting involved early means being at the forefront of office security.


If any of these four items causes you to think even a little bit, you might want to arrange for that conversation and see what’s possible and where it might be of help to you!
