No matter what industry you are in or the size of your business, it is essential that measures are taken to maximise your security. Criminals target business premises as they know that there will be valuable items on site, and they also are aware that the premises are usually empty overnight too. Most businesses will also find that their current security and surveillance systems are out of date, as there have been many excellent advances in recent years which can help to improve your security and stop criminals in their tracks. These systems make it very easy to monitor your entire site, and the image quality on CCTV systems is now crystal clear and can be used in court if need be.

Lots of businesses could benefit from having access control throughout their building, as this is an excellent way to have greater control over who can enter the property. Access control enables you to manage entry and exit to your site and building with doors, gates and barriers, and turnstiles. This is usually either through entering a key code, presenting a key fob or token, or by swiping a card. These brilliant systems can even be implemented with other security solutions, such as CCTV and voice access systems so that visual or password verification controls access to areas of the building. There are many different types of access control available, and for the best results it is worth discussing your options with a specialist company as they will be able to offer you a bespoke solution.

With Paxton access control systems, you can opt for a few different options. This includes stand alone systems, which can be used to control access on one of several independent doors. There are also compact systems, and these are cost effective as they are stand alone and fitted on a per door basis, with the potential to expand. Finally, there are then PC based access control systems, with these enabling you to control multiple doors from one central control system off of your network. All of these systems will offer you fantastic protection and ensure that only those who you authorise will have access to the building or certain areas of the building.

Access control is a great way to have greater control over who can and cannot enter the building, but it should be part of a much bigger security solution which includes CCTV, intruder alarms and plenty more. In order to maximise your security, you need to ensure that you have all the latest and best surveillance equipment, and for this you will need to speak to specialists who will be able to deliver a tailor made solution for you.
