Having control of who enters and leaves your business is an important aspect of the safety of your employees and visitors. So, it’s vital to regularly review your system and check whether an upgrade is due.
With the ever-changing world around us, it’s important to stay ahead of security trends so that you are a step ahead of criminals. Finding the right security systems Melbourne businesses can use, can take some time but in the end it will be worth it. Trusting the security experts at Australian Security can make this task even easier.
Security systems can range from the simplest access control measures to the installation of CCTV cameras all around your premises. The size of your business and what you need will determine what you will install. Let’s have a look at a couple of security measures you can install and why it’s the investment your business needs.
Systems to Consider
Access control systems are about controlling the flow of people and vehicles into, out of and inside your premises. When you understand the entry and exit of vehicles and people are in your building, you can better control and prevent unfortunate incidents such as criminals gaining access to your merchandise and valuable assets.
Access control systems come in several different setups. They are as simple as having your security personnel at the main gates checking drivers’ licenses and having them sign a register, ranging all the way to card, code and biometric recognition systems.
The security system can be advanced by using biometrics or it can be basic, using individually allocated tags for your employees and visitors moving within the building. The purpose is to control the flow on the premises or in certain areas and only grant access to authorised individuals.
With the advancement of technology, the team at reception are no longer required to be fully responsible to making sure they see and remember every face that enters your building. The introduction of closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras means you can have eyes and ears in all parts of your building 24/7, in addition to an access control system.
CCTV is a video system in which cameras record video images and transmit these to a monitor. Now your security team can see any possible issues before they occur and stop them before they affect the business, its people and visitors.
Benefits of Access Control and Visitor Management Systems
The benefits of a security system will always outweigh any reasons why you would consider not to have one. Making sure that you create a safe environment for your people, will yield greater results from them, such as higher productivity.
A security system is also an investment into keeping your equipment safe, such as computers and machinery. Should these get stolen with no one seeing when and how it happened, a lot more money will be spent replacing these then installing cameras. The access control system will also allow you to monitor who entered and exited a room, narrowing possibilities of who was in the room at that time.
Some other benefits of installing a modern access control security system are:
- Security for important information
- Can restrict access to secure a particular area or sector
- Can track the movement of individuals with the collected data
- Easily integrate with other security and safety systems
- Helps to prevent crime that may be affecting your bottom line
- Provide information for auditing, time and attendance
- Manage and control access remotely
