Owning a domestic or commercial property comes with a variety of challenges, from day to day maintenance to security considerations. Access control systems are arguably the strongest and most sophisticated form of security you can implement to protect a property.

This is especially true of commercial buildings, which have greater security needs due to the larger amount of people accessing the premises (staff, clients/customers, partners and other guests) and the valuable assets they can hold from cash to expensive equipment. Access control systems are incredibly reliable for protecting your building without disrupting day to day activities.

Keyless Access

Twenty First Security Access Control Systems offer extremely high security to businesses requiring authorised access to restricted areas.

Today's comprehensive business environment demands uncompromising levels of security efficiency and sophistication. Limiting access, building management and high security solutions are of paramount importance when considering the options to safeguard your business.

Not only can you restrict access to staff and visitors, you can also keep track of who enters what area, when and how long they are there via means of a computer log or instantaneous computer printout. This coupled with a Twenty First Security Alarm System offers a virtually impenetrable barrier to unwanted intruders. These systems are both affordable and simple to use.

A totally integrated building and energy management system also decreases running costs. A safe and secure working environment means higher productivity and reduced losses, which of course means higher profits.

A Twenty First Security Access Control System is the complete solution that provides everything you could expect from a high technology security and building management system, while keeping foremost the simplicity of operation. Future building management requirements are easily met by the unprecedented innovations incorporated in the modular and expandable design, which allows your security management solution to expand and grow with your business needs.

Flexibility and versatility means a Twenty First Security Access Control System can meet the most demanding requirements with minimal associated costs.

What to Consider When Choosing an Access Control System

Over the years, there have been major advancements in biometric and digital access control technology, allowing them to better combat potential security threats. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that the best security system for your property is not always going to be the most advanced system.

That’s why we offer flexible solutions to suit your particular needs and budget. To choose the right system, a careful assessment of those security needs will be required to help you select a set up that best matches your needs. This is something the team at Twenty First Security can help with. Below are some key considerations.

What Do You Want Out of Your System?

Access control systems can be as simple or as complex as required. It’s essential that you understand what you want to get out of your system. For example, if you are installing a system in your home, you might also want to remotely control things like door locking or have the ability to monitor your home from a mobile device while you’re away. Other features you can get with access control panels include an intercom system, electronic lock, keyless door lock, digital door lock or even a fingerprint lock.

If you’re installing a system for your business, the main focus may be keeping track of which employees can access different areas of the premises. You might have some areas of the building that are “off limits” to certain employees. Or you might want vendors to access the building without being buzzed in while also not having the ability to access certain areas. Maybe you want your system to work as an employee time card verification as well as an access system.

Determining Your Security Needs

Of course, you also need to establish what level of security you want to achieve. Asking experts to assess your premises and make security recommendations is a good way to start this process. Once you decide these factors, you can make decisions about what kind of features you want from key cards to keypads.

The type of property and its location are two of the most important things to consider. Buildings located near high traffic areas, transportation, tourist attractions and cultural centres tend to have an inherently higher risk of crime and may require extra security measures.

Your security needs will also depend on what type of business you are. While all businesses have security concerns, companies in certain industries such as chemical production, finance and banking or government administration may require additional security precautions such as fingerprint door locks.

An organisation in the retail or healthcare industry with a large number of walk-in visitors face risks related to high traffic and may also require a plan for handling traffic and avoiding or limiting congestion in lobbies as well as a having a high quality physical security system.

How Many Areas Do You Want to Secure?

Properties are as diverse as the families and businesses that occupy them, thus the security system that protects them must reflect this. Solutions range from a simple, standalone one door solution all the way to a fully integrated building-wide access control system that allows you to restrict access to certain areas to certain individuals with the right clearances as well as monitor access and time spent in those areas.

Of course, there are also plenty of options in between. When choosing an access control system, you should consider what level of security you require as well as how many areas you want to secure and what kind of areas they are, from rooms to cabinets and lockers.

What is the Reputation of the Manufacturer?

Implementing an access control system is costly and to ensure it’s effective, you should ensure it is manufactured by a reputable company. System maturity, numerous clients and a strong track record are key indicators of how much end user feedback has contributed to its development, how much it’s been reviewed and tested and ultimately how effective, robust and scalable the system is.

Look for real examples of where the manufacturer’s system is being used to manage the traffic flow and/or security of a premises. Look for other end users that are similar in size and scope to your company to get a better idea of how well they might meet your needs.

There’s a good chance a reputable access control systems manufacturer will have clients that are of a similar size, scope and business type to yours, allowing you a certain level of comfort that the system will suit your needs.

Twenty First Security are experts when it comes to recommending a high quality security system to suit your needs and budget. From businesses to family homes, we’re here to help you.

How Reliable and Cost Effective is the System?

Consider the cost and useful life of the system. Security solutions like biometrics are usually more on the expensive side while smart cards and keypads are some of the most affordable solutions. Most businesses want a system that is both effective and affordable but remember that it’s often worth investing more in a system that will be reliable over the long term and offers the capacity for upgrades and integrations.

Rather than immediately looking for the smallest upfront costs, do a breakdown of the costs over a five year period and decide what kind of system will give you the best value. This includes all costs related to installation, operation, training, maintenance, repairs and upgrades.

The ability to upgrade and scale your security solution is important as your business may grow or expand into new areas and security technology will continue to advance, with more cost effective and improved systems coming onto the market over time.

How Does it Integrate With Other Technology?

Software is a key component of access control systems, particularly when you include monitoring capabilities. You should ensure the system you choose to use will run well on the operating system that your organisation uses for any computers that are on site.

If you want to create a custom security solution that integrates with other systems such as CCTV or remote monitoring, ensure you have the right technology in place to do so. You should also consider things such as whether you want web based connectivity to your access control system. This allows you to manage users, system devices and view reports from any device that has access to the internet.
