What is Access Control?
It’s vital for all businesses large and small to have a safe and secure working environment, to protect both staff, assets and your premises. A Chiltern Access system gives you that security and enables you to record, monitor and control movement around your building.
Access control gives you the ability to control firstly, who has access to your premises. Secondly, where in your premises certain people are allowed to access and finally when they are allowed to access these areas.
Say for example, your cleaning staff arrive at 05:00am every Tuesday and need to access every room except the server room. In this scenario these staff members can be issued a swipe card, key fob, access code or even use bio-metrics (finger print or retinal scan) to grant them access to these locations between say 05:00am and 06:00am on Tuesday mornings. These access methods would be programmed to deny access outside of these times.
Meanwhile, your admin staff may need access to the main office but no other areas between Monday to Friday, 09:00am to 17:00pm. These select staff members can be issued tokens or codes to facilitate this.
In short, everyone can have bespoke access rights, that can be amended and monitored at the click of a button.
