What are access control keypads?
A keypad access control system is one that has numeric keys, similar to a telephone. In order for a person to gain access to your commercial property, they will need to enter the right numeric code which will be issued by the business owner or manager as a primary keyholder. This way, only staff and personnel that are permitted to enter the property can gain access.
These systems can be used alongside card readers or intercom systems to provide two layers of security. Of course, they can also be used on their own to provide reassurance that your office or workplace is secure.
What are the benefits of installing an access control keypad?
Improve the security of your business
Your code keypad for access control can be installed on any door – not just the main entrance. This gives you the ability to secure any vulnerable on-site locations, as well as sensitive stock and information. You can have full control over who has access to certain areas of your business.
Keypads are a lot more reliable than traditional lock and key. You don’t need to worry about the locks breaking or the keys being lost or stolen. This can save you a lot of money and a lot of hassle too.
Workplace keypads are also effective at deterring crime. If a criminal notices an access keypad, he or she is going to be much less likely to target your business.
Best practices for creating and distributing codes amongst staff
It is important to determine who is going to have access to certain areas of your business premises. You may, for example, grant everyone access to the staff room. However, only a handful of people may be allowed access to the stock room or admin office where sensitive documents and precious stock is kept. Once you have installed your door security keypad, you’ll need to choose codes that are relatively easy to remember, but aren’t easy to guess.
For sensitive workplace areas, selecting codes carefully is crucial. Don’t opt for the likes of ‘1234’ or ‘9999’ which can be easily guessed by a potential intruder. You can also change codes every so often to maintain high levels of security; particularly if you have regular on-site visitors or rotating staff. If you’re looking to improve the security to the main entrance of your business, you can also explore our options to install intercom systems for your business.
