Integrated access control solutions help generate a clear view of your business’s potential vulnerabilities by consolidating all your security systems into a single hub. Integrated security systems were once a luxury for big corporations, but as technology evolved, it has become more accessible for small and medium-sized businesses.
Installing CCTV cameras paired with real-time monitoring is a good start, but it is not enough. Integrating access control with CCTV allows for in-depth analysis and data, which is crucial to the security operations of a modern business.
A well designed integrated access control system utilises biometrics, CCTV cameras and card readers to regulate who or what can view or use resources in a secured environment.
There are many ways your business can benefit from implementing a proper integrated access control solution. In this article, we are going to look at the three key benefits.
Ease of use
Integrated access control provides a unified interface, allowing multiple systems to work together seamlessly. Instead of having to log in to multiple systems for one process, integrated access control allows businesses to retrieve real-time data such as attendance tracking, visitor logs and employee identity records from one interface, which reduces unnecessary duplication of work.
Managing all your business’s security operations from one interface makes it possible for your team to be proactive rather than reactive, which helps with reducing your response time to incidents. If your business does not have a security team, your integrated access control system can easily be monitored off-site by your contracted third party security company.
Integrated access control not only enhances security but also reduces overheads in the long run, as investing in a system is a one-off cost. The need for manpower reduces as technologies such as fingerprint, facial and number plate recognition does not require manual monitoring.
