What are the benefits of using access card readers?
June 15, 2022
One of the core security requirements of any business is to control who can access its buildings and assets. Card readers are one of the most popular options for access control. Previously only within enterprise security budgets, new, low-cost access control systems are increasingly becoming the preferred option for enterprises of all sizes.
The use of on-site security personnel for access control is usually cost-effective only in the short term, for example for special events with temporary boundaries. In a more stable business environment, having a security officer at each access point is often too costly and actually more error prone.
Security personnel will eventually make mistakes. Someone could accidentally be waved through, or the key ring could be lost. If the lost key is a master key or an associate master key, the cost of re-keys caused by a simple error can quickly accumulate.
