Hosts are greeted with solutions capable of providing more convenient access through the smart device of their choice by expanding access control availability.

FREMONT, CA: Currently, robust access control solutions are critical for the security of medium and large businesses, assisting in eliminating security threats associated with access points. The safety and security of employees and visitors and the protection of sensitive properties are top priorities for any modern access control solution. When it is time to update the solution, here are a few features of access control to consider.

1. Distinctive Alarm Notifications

Different warning sounds can be programmed in the access control back-office to differentiate between urgent, non-urgent, and emergency incidents. For example, an alarm for "Door Held Open" and "Door Forced Open" will send different sounds to the back-office to alert the appropriate workers. Additionally, certain access control solutions may be programmed to automatically send an email to specific workers if an alarm has been activated. Security teams can be informed of events even while they are away from their department by configuring this environment.

2. Back-Office Accessibility

Access control has developed to become more open and user-friendly in response to increasing demand for smarter, more mobile-friendly solutions. These improvements were made primarily to aid organizations in their everyday operations and improve the ease with which back-offices can be accessed, both remotely and on-site. Hosts are greeted with solutions capable of providing more convenient access through the smart device of their choice by expanding access control availability.

3. Fast and Secure Hosting

The majority of current access control solutions can be deployed on-premises, on the cloud, or ass a hybrid (collaboration between on-premise and the cloud). While each of these hosting solutions has its own set of advantages, the cloud is far superior when choosing where to host the access control solution.

As cloud technology advances, there is an increasing expectation in the security technology community that more and more businesses will move from physical hosting to a SaaS-based alternative. Organizations can gain access to several advantages by hosting an access control solution on the cloud. Rapid deployment and installation, as well as global scalability, are not possible on-premises. When it comes to scaling, these benefits alone will help businesses save valuable time and money.
