How Managed Access Protects Your Business When You Are WFH
The pandemic has changed a lot about our daily lives, including how we work. No matter the industry, we have to keep adapting to our new situations to be able to remain successful. At Sonitrol, this means protecting businesses whether they’re working from home or the office. Our security systems can help give you the peace of mind you need when you’re out of the office.
What Is a Managed Access Control System?
A managed access control system is a way to have more control over your building and your security. You can see what’s going on in your building, restrict access to certain areas, and so much more.
Managed access can save you the trouble and expense of locks, help you to track movement throughout your facility, and allow you to restrict access by location and/or time of day. Activity is monitored at all times, with security professionals able to track employees and visitors in your building. Not only that, but access control can also manage HVAC, elevators and lighting systems, as well as help protect your company’s data.
Traditional lock and key systems are not fail-safe. Locks can be picked or left unlocked, and keys can be copied. Not to mention, these systems can be a hassle to work with and expensive to replace. A managed access control system can work with both key-card access and a buzzer system to ensure that unwanted visitors are not permitted in your building.
Managed access systems can also be easily integrated with all of the other systems we offer here at Sonitrol. Whether you need to add in video monitoring and audio detection or want to incorporate fire detection into your security plan, all of our systems work cohesively together and when combined make a comprehensive overall plan for maximum safety.
How Managed Access Can Help Your Business when Employees Work from Home
Managed access is a great security solution for businesses in any situation, but as we have seen since the start of the pandemic, the way we work is constantly changing. Remote work options are now more popular than ever, and that popularity is continuing to rise as more people change their views on in-office working.
Did you know that 55% of companies globally offer remote opportunities in some capacity, with 16% of companies operating fully remotely? That’s a lot of people working from home. And a lot of office spaces with fewer-than-normal in-person employees.
Whether your office is fully or partially staffed, managed access control can help you keep your building, products, data, and more safe from theft. In short, managed access can:
Save you time by decreasing the need for you to constantly be at the office to check who is there or let people in.
Save you money by eliminating keys and reducing the risk of needing to change the locks if keys get lost or an employee leaves.
Give you control by allowing you to restrict access to your building, or even just parts of your building, by the day/time or person.
Give you peace of mind by monitoring movement within your building at all times.
At Sonitrol, our goal is to protect your business whether you have one or one hundred employees in your building. Learn more about managed access here to see how we can help your business.
