At Sonitrol Security, we know that keeping your students and staff safe is your top priority – it’s ours too. This is why we have set out to create security systems that will ensure the safety of your school no matter your location, size, or budget. Our managed access control system is budget-friendly and easy to install, making it the perfect solution for quick results when it comes to safety.
The bottom line is, you need to make your school a safe place for students and faculty to feel protected from the time they arrive on campus to when they leave. Don’t let your school fall short of top security measures, as it can put everyone involved at risk. Today we want to share all of the benefits of managed access control and how this system can impact schools just like yours.
The Benefits of Managed Access Control
We have discussed our managed access control system previously in this blog, but the benefits only continue to get better for what this system has to offer. For starters, one of the main benefits of access control is simply controlling and monitoring any visitors, employees, and students who enter/exit your school facility at any given time. Any and all access will be monitored 24-hours a day from our central station by our team of security professionals.
Managed access control will save your school the hassle of depending on a lock-key system to secure the entries and exits of your building. Locks can be picked or left unlocked, and keys can be copied. The managed access control system works through both key-card access and a buzzer system in which school officials can control who is able to come inside the building.
Additionally, you are able to restrict access to certain areas of the school building by time of day/location, etc. This easily allows you to prevent students from accessing areas that only school officials and staff should be able to get into. Lastly, our access control system will give you reports of any entry into the building, restricted areas, or reports of employees attendance/time – making it efficient to keep your building and everyone inside of it safe.
Our managed access system can be easily integrated with all of the other systems we offer here at Sonitrol. Whether you need to add in video monitoring combined with audio detection to both hear and see all activity inside of your school in real-time, or you want to incorporate fire detection into your security plan for early detection to minimize losses – all of our plans work cohesively together and when combined make a comprehensive overall plan for maximum safety.
How Managed Access Control Can Impact Schools
Although our managed access control system can positively impact businesses and organizations across a wide variety of industries, we are particularly proud of the ways in which it benefits schools. Aside from the benefits we mentioned above, having access control allows you to track all visitors, employees, and even contractors who use and have access to your school’s grounds. The system documents time entries, attendance, and a timeclock of hours for visitors and staff members which can easily be referenced for future use.
In addition, access control can manage your school’s HVAC, elevators, and lighting systems. The goal of the managed access control system is to have all of your school’s security measures easily accessible, able to be managed from one central location, and all monitored the same way.
All in all, Sonitrol strives to ease the overall process of securing your school. Implementing a system such as managed access control will boost your student’s and staff’s confidence and sense of safety when they are on school grounds.
