SAY GOODBYE TO KEYS… AND HELLO TO KEYCARDS.
Have you ever forgotten your keys to the office? Have you had to replace your building’s locks because of misplaced keys? Do you ever worry about getting the keys back from a terminated employee?
As much trouble as a little piece of metal can cause, a little piece of plastic can really save the day!
There are a multitude of reasons for your business to go keyless, and it’s easier than you may think! By enlisting an access control system, you save time and peace of mind by tracking who has access to your building by a simple keycard.
CONTROL WHO COMES AND GOES
Access control systems give you the ability to grant access to those who need it. No more getting keys made–just activate keycards for your employees.
Trying to track down past employees’ keys that no longer need access? No more. With keycard access, you can deactivate access for personnel whenever you need to, temporarily or permanently.
NEVER CHANGE THE LOCKS AGAIN
Your employee comes to you at the end of the work day with a face like they saw a ghost…
“I can’t find my keys anywhere, Boss.”
Just like that, you no longer know who has access to your building, your business. With one innocent mistake, you’ve lost control of your assets and safety.
They may have dropped the keys on their way to lunch. They may have knocked them in the trash. They may be sitting in a drawer to be found tomorrow. Or… they may have been swiped by someone who should not have them.
Regardless of how, who, or why… you now have to change all of the locks.
This is a great reason to switch to keycards, avoiding this scenario all together! If a keycard is lost, it can be frozen or deactivated to stop unwanted entrances.
INSTANTLY CHANGE CLEARANCE LEVELS
Your building has many rooms – and not everyone needs access to everywhere. By setting up strategic clearance levels, you can grant access to certain points of entry to only those who need it.
The best part of clearances through a switch to keycard access is the ability to change them as often as necessary. If someone needs temporary access, you can do so instantly without making a new key that you have to later collect. Just log in, grant access, and remove it when it’s time.
YOU CAN’T COPY A KEYCARD
…at least, not easily.
Have you ever worried about a disgruntled ex-employee getting back into the office? Concerned that someone may want to get back in to access sensitive information? With traditional keys, anyone can make a copy with little effort and you may never know.
Keys can be copied and held on to. An electronic key, for the average person, cannot be duplicated. Once a keycard is deactivated, it’s useless.
Your business and employees are too valuable to run the risk of an unwanted entrance. Don’t waste another day on security risks due to keys in the wrong hands. By switching to keycards through an access control system, you can maintain control over your business’ points of access at all times.
