An access control system gives you the most control over who has access to your business. These systems allow you to provide the highest level of protection for your employees and assets.
Many business owners are intimidated by these systems, particularly small business owners who may only have one entry access point.
However, one of the remarkable features of an access control system is that it's completely scalable, and can work with any size business.
Access controller systems come in different forms and with varying ease of use. Some require a thumb imprint or a retinal scan like you see in the movies.

Others just ask for a four-digit combination code to enable access to a facility. Whichever access control method you prefer, make sure it is tailor-fit to the environment in which it will be used. Consider whether authorized individuals can gain entry without tripping the alarm all the time.
Another point to consider is the actual size of the area you want to secure. Size comes into play especially in big businesses with a lot of spaces that need different levels of security.
Determine who is supposed to have access to what as well as which areas need heavier security. Data centers, safe rooms, and document storage sections normally need added security.
Security systems with keypad entry are ideal for those who want to secure their homes or apartments. However, this might not be the best option for a business or organization with a substantial workforce as employees would need constant ingress and egress throughout company premises. In addition, keypad access codes may be shared, written down, or even misplaced, leaving the premises vulnerable to unauthorized entry.
