A vast number of businesses need to control access to their property. Although that can be done with a guard shack and 24/7 security personnel, that can be a costly solution in terms of labor costs. Gate access control systems make sense in a variety of situations. In addition to avoiding the labor of a manned gate, here are a few more benefits you can experience with gate access control systems.
- You can choose the level of security enhancement you desire. Gate access control systems can be activated in a variety of ways, including vehicle sticker, keypad input, smartcard reader, intercom, and even biometric readers.
- You will have a record of every admittance and departure. You can use this information when determining who might have been present during a crime, as well as to make various business decisions related to delivery schedules. You’ll also know if your salaried employees are arriving on time or leaving early.
- Gate access control systems offer ease of access so there is less chance of a bottleneck at your gate. When you have a manned gate, conversations can slow things down.
- Having a gate access control system in place adds value to your property, especially if it is state-of-the-art. It is a capital expenditure that can yield a high return on investment.
