Why is an Access Control System Needed
Access control systems can be used for all entrances to your building or internally to limit access of certain areas to those staff members who don’t need access. With access control, you must have the appropriate security clearance to enter restricted areas. Not only do these systems keep unauthorized personnel out of the building or secure areas, but they also provide a logs of who has entered and left the building. If a theft or other problem occurs, you will know who was most likely involved based off of access reports.
Security is top priority for your building and business, access control provides an extra layer of security in addition to camera systems and alarm systems. If you are lucky enough to have all 3, your site is safer and more secure than most are probably aware.

Example of an Access Control System that is used to lock doors:
Imagine a park that has public restrooms. The restroom doors would have to be manually locked every morning and every night by staff. By using an access control system on a schedule, you could unlock the doors first thing in the morning and lock the doors in the evening. This eliminates a staff member from having to manually lock and unlock the doors. In the event someone is in the restroom when the doors lock, the system would allow free Egress for the person to exit and the door would lock behind them when they exit. If the doors happen to get propped open, the Access Control Systems could send notifications or set a local alarm off.
Door Access Control Systems are very beneficial to companies and people that use them, once you have an access control system installed, you will wonder how you made it this far without one.

At i-Tech Security and Network Solutions, we not only work on doors, we provide installation for new Electronically Controller Gates, Gate Barriers and Man Gates that are managed by Access Control Systems. Gates are used for a wide range of reasons, some are used to keep people out, some are used because they are required by the Federal Trade Zone.
Gates and Access Control provide an extra layer of security for businesses and commercial properties when someone may not be around to lock a door, close a gate or allow someone in the building. With most Access Control System, you can utilize the mobile app for mobile access, use a browser or Cloud Based Systems to grant access, open doors, lock doors and monitor activity logs.
Gates come in many different shapes and sizes, one common gate we install for a lot of customers are cantilever gates. Cantilever Gates are a slide gate that opens with a motor that is controlled with an Access Control System or Stand Alone Keypad System. We don’t typically recommend the keypad solution since it is easy to share codes, and there is no log of users entering the gate. i-Tech Security provides design and installation for Gates, Gate Motors, Sensors, Knox Boxes, Underground Pathways, Bollards and anything else required to ensure a solid gate solution for our customers.
