Tips to Buying Access Control Systems for Your Business

Posted by provilink // in

There is a growing demand for access control systems in Dubai, with advances being made in all types of security technologies to help you keep your business secure from unwelcome visitors.  

You have choices in biometric scanners, or you could go with a hard to beat fingerprint lock. Time attendance systems are also popular as they help to ensure the right people have access only during their allotted shift times. 

The system that is right for your business will depend a lot on the type of business, the hours of operation, and your budget. Here are just a few of the considerations you will need to make when figuring out what system is right for you.

1.    Who Needs Access?

Does your business need access for after-hours deliveries? How about cleaners who need to enter the premises after the day staff have left for home? The frequency of visitors and how long they can stay will also factor in as you need to know when after-hours workers have overstayed their welcome. 

Whatever your choice it will need to be a system that can be carefully monitored and provide appropriate alerts at any time of the day or night. 

2.    How many Locations are Being Secured?

Most access control systems can monitor multiple locations at the same time, but with more points of access comes increased risk. 

A system that also includes stock rooms, offices, and employee areas will possibly need more high-end security monitoring. 

3.    What Sort of Reporting Capabilities Will You Need? 

Will you need standard, custom, or real-time reporting capabilities? 

Reports can often look like a garbled mess to the non-initiated so make sure your system can create reports that are easily readable and don’t require extensive training to translate. 

A system also needs to make it easy to generate a report as and when they are needed. 

4.     Does the System Provide Real Time Notifications?

A security system isn’t much good if it doesn’t notify you immediately about maintenance needs, system processes, intrusions, and other alerts. 

There are so many options available in security systems that it can be challenging to make sense of it all. However, security for your business is important so your best course of action is to get professionals to advise you on the best system for your business, and install it as well.
