If you want to increase the security and protection of your business and the elements therein, upgrading your current lock to an alarm lock system could be the right decision. Having an alarm lock installed means you won’t have to worry about key duplication or lock rekeying as the system makes use of programmable pin codes and ID badges for access control.
With such a lock in place, managing your employee’s details and restricted access locations becomes easier as well.
But if you’re wondering how the alarm lock system could be the right choice for your home or business, here are four features of the lock system and how useful those features are.
Before getting to that, don’t forget to get in touch with the experts at 843 Locksmith for a prompt service appointment if you want an alarm lock installed in your commercial or residential building.
Prox cards and access codes
An alarm lock has a feature that allows you to utilize either a proximity card or access codes for entry. Depending on your need, however, both the card and pin can be used for areas requiring an additional layer of security. Combining the card and pin will help prevent someone from using a stolen card to gain entry into a premise since verification from the other credential – pin code – would be required.
Toggle Codes or Cards
With toggle codes or card, you can keep an alarm lock in the open or closed state. You can use this function to keep your door unlocked for as long as you want when moving items in and out of a room. The toggle feature will keep your door unlocked, which means you won’t have to re-enter the access codes every now and then. The feature also gives you an option to lock your lock at an earlier time. Let’s say your alarm lock is programmed to lock at 6:00pm, your toggle card or pin can be used to restrict access before the scheduled time when necessary to do so.
One-Time Access Codes
Another feature of the alarm lock system is the capability to set entry codes that can be used once. One-time codes can be given to contractors or vendors who need temporary access to your facility or residence. With this smart solution, you don’t have to worry about the service person using the assigned code at some other time. Also, because one-time codes destroy automatically after use, you will not need to go back home just to revoke entry codes assigned to a visitor or service person.
You can pull reports, including granted and denied entries from an alarm lock system. Being armed with this information can be helpful when making decisions about ways to make your business or residence more safe and secure. The audit trail will help you identify and address any security breach before it becomes a bigger issue.
