Simply put, physical access control is a system that regulates who can enter a property by authorizing or restricting entry at control points. Usually used as a gate entry system or the entry to a doorway, many access control systems can also be used to monitor how many people enter a property, and control when they’re allowed access.
Access control systems used to control access to physical property, including residential access control systems and commercial access control systems are available in various types, depending on the level of access control required and the available budget.
Gate access control is an essential element to many properties, for both residential and site access control, due to the range of key benefits a modern and advanced physical access control system brings, which include:
Your gate is often the main access point of your property, therefore your first line of defence against unwanted visitors or intruders. With state-of-the-art access control installed, you or your security team can automate your security strategy at your gate, to help improve effectiveness and efficiency.
Employing a manned security team at your gate can be expensive, particularly if it’s 24/7/365, and when you factor in expenses, such as holiday pay and insurance etc.
With the relevant physical access control system installed, you’re able to reduce the number of manned security operatives required at the gate or remove the need entirely.
If you run a business with multiple employees, or you own or run a residential property of multiple occupancies, manually controlling access at your gate can be a time-consuming task. With a physical access control solution, each tenant or employee will have the convenience of their means of access, allowing them to enter via the gate when required.
Locking your gate with an old-fashioned key or keys can be a tedious and risky process, especially if your gate is a long distance from the property, and situated in a dimly-lit area. With an advanced access control system however, you’ll be able to lock your gate remotely, and any means of access ex-employees have, can be deactivated instantly.
