Traditional locks have done a good job in protecting buildings and restricting access to unauthorized persons, but in the business scenario, it gets more complicated.
This is because business areas are accessible to the public, making them vulnerable to burglary and other crimes. As the capacity of the business increases, so does the number of locks and keys, which in turn leads to a higher rate of misplaced keys, lockouts, and burglary. Also, if employees are laid off, there's no guarantee they will duly return the keys.
The solution to most of the issues lies in keyless entry systems and smart technologies. The keyless entry system eliminates the need for a physical key, allowing you to keep track of those who access the building at specific times and offers more convenience and security.
However, various keyless entry systems in the market could confuse consumers, but we will be looking at the best keyless entry options for your business.
Keypads operate by demanding a set of codes from the person trying to access the building. If the codes are correct, access is granted. This eliminates the need to move around with physical keys and only grants access to those with the code. Also, some products allow the keypad to light up in the dark, providing enough illumination to enter the code correctly. This is particularly helpful to late-night workers needing access in the dark.
One major drawback to keypads is that ex-employees will still have access to your business areas unless the codes are changed. So, you'd have to change your codes every time an employee leaves. If you have a high turnover, then a keypad may not be the best option for your business.
A keyfob is an electronic device scanned by a reader when placed close to it. Once the central server has confirmed the keyfob's data, access is granted. Also, you can program the key fobs to have access to certain building sections and restrict access from other parts. This keyless entry option allows you to give authorized access to those deserving of it. By comparison, it is better than the keypad locks.
Biometric keyless entry systems use human biological features such as a fingerprint to grant access. It usually uses two-step verification; the first is the fingerprint, and the second is a set of pins. Once the fingerprint is authorized, you will input the pin before access is granted. The biometric option is super secure and ideal for small businesses as it can take up to 100 fingerprints. You can add and remove an employee's fingerprint from the server when their services are no longer needed.
Intercom is specifically helpful for children's centers that must verify a person's identity before granting access. This option uses a video recording software that captures the face of the person at the door and sends it back to the chief security or anyone in charge of access. Once the identity of the individual is confirmed, the chief security pushes a button, and the door is automatically unlocked.
The intercom records videos of everyone who accessed the building, which helps keep track of past visitors.
Installing the right keyless entry system requires expertise from the end of the locksmith. So, ensure that any locksmith you'd be working with is experienced with keyless entry systems for businesses.
