An access control system is a system which supervises and restricts who and when someone enters a building. From military facilities to daycare centers, a door access control system is widely relied upon everywhere. At Coastal Contract Hardware we specialize in commercial security solutions. Our Myrtle Beach commercial access control technologies can be customized and utilized to ensure the best protection for you and your business.
Components of Commercial Access Control
Our Myrtle Beach commercial access control systems consist of two main components. The first one is the device which is installed on the door or on the wall next to the entrance point. This device is what communicates with a locking mechanism. There are many different types of commercial access control devices depending on the method of entry they use.
One of the simplest access control mechanisms is a mechanical or a digital pushbutton lock. This lock, which can be installed and ready to use in 30 minutes, unlocks the door by manually entering a previously programmed code. More complicated access control devices may use a card swipe or a key fob as the method of entry.
No matter what the method of entry, the first component of a system controls the second component, which is the locking mechanism itself. For example wooden and metal doors often use electric strikes as their locking mechanism.
Why Use our Myrtle Beach Commercial Access Control System
If you walked in your office this morning and realized your computer is gone how would that affect your business? Giving owners control over the safety and security of their facilities is one of the many benefits of installing a Myrtle Beach commercial access control system.
Our Myrtle Beach commercial access control system allows you to track who and when someone enters and leaves your facility. Depending on the system you choose, once a person enters a building you can then track their moves around the facility. An access control system in place encourages employees to be more efficient with their time. Additionally, because of the personal identification aspect of an access control system, an employee will be less likely to give their access code or card to someone else since the information will always point to them.
As an owner or security manager in a facility with an access control system in place, you have the power of who is and who is not allowed to enter. Have you recently fired an employee? You can easily erase his access credentials. Do you want to make sure your employee only enters the office during the day? Limit his access to daytime hours only.
Access Control and Security System Integration
Your Myrtle Beach commercial access control system can be easily integrated with a security system such as video surveillance.
