Why Invest in Access Control Systems for Your Business?

Access Control Systems  — Des Moines, IA — A Tech

Security should be a top priority for any company, regardless of size. You cannot afford to take chances regarding the safety of your employees, customers, and physical assets.

Investing in an access control system is a sure way to increase security. Access control allows you to monitor and control who enters and exits your premises. Discover more about access control and how the investment can benefit your business.

Enhances Security

Use the access control system to monitor and restrict entry to certain areas of your premises. This feature is handy if you have sensitive data or materials you want to protect from theft or damage.

For example, you can use an access control system to restrict access to your server room. This step will prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining access to your network.

Eliminates the Need for Keys

If you use a traditional key and lock system, you know how easy losing a key can be. If you lose the key, you compromise the security of your premises. In addition, the key can get into the wrong hands to gain unauthorized access to your property.

Additionally, traditional keys are easy to duplicate. So, if you give a key to an employee, contractor, or vendor, you have no guarantee that they will not make a copy of the key and use it to gain access to your premises without your permission.

An access control system eliminates the need for keys. Instead, the system uses a variety of credentials such as ID cards, fingerprints, and iris scanners to grant or deny access. And in case of lost credentials, you can quickly deactivate them and issue new ones.

Improve Workers’ Experience

First, access control allows workers to enter and exit the premises. The workers don’t have to fumble with keys or remember codes. Furthermore, since the access keys give workers an extra sense of security, the employees can be more comfortable working in the company. When workers are happy and satisfied, they are likely to work harder and be more productive.

Saves You Money

The initial investment in an access control system may be higher than a traditional system. However, the system will save you money in the long run.

For example, if you use traditional keys, you often have to replace them frequently, especially if they get lost or stolen. You also have to change the locks periodically to prevent unauthorized duplication of keys. These replacement and maintenance costs can add up over time.

An access control system is a one-time investment that doesn’t require frequent replacements or maintenance. Furthermore, the system might even help you save on insurance premiums. When your business is more secure, the insurance company will offer a discount on your premium.

Helps You Comply With Industry Regulations

Depending on your industry, you might be required to comply with specific security standards. For example, the HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) security rule requires healthcare organizations to have physical safeguards to protect patient health information.

In the same way, if you own an e-commerce business, you must comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). This requires companies that agree to take credit card payments to have proper security measures in place to protect customer data. Again, an access control system can help you meet these requirements and avoid hefty fines.

An access control system is a smart investment for any business. The system gives you peace of mind and will help you meet your bottom line.

    Todd at A Tech did an awesome job setting up all the electronics in our basement. We have surround sound and all of the electronics are hidden in a closet with only 1 remote. My husband is techy so he worked with A Tech more than I did but my only request to Todd was that I needed to be able to watch tv and play a dvd without asking for help (I am not techy!) One fabulous remote runs everything and has pictures and an easy menu! They also fixed the internet issue in our house! Very Happy Customers!

    Todd designed a whole house audio system with separate controls for every room with one receiver. He was extremely knowledgeable about speaker placement, size and quality. The end product is amazing. He also recommended a remote that controls everything. This is one of my favorite features. I have also purchased several items for my garage organization that I love. They have everything from home audio, garage organization to kitchen items in the store. Will continue to do business with them as I still need closet organization.

    We have had our Beam Central Vac for over 15 years and absolutely love it! It is convenient, easy to use and best of all - keeps the 'dust' out of the home!. We have had very good service when we needed it, we replaced the motor in the unit once (very reasonable) and had replaced the power brush handle once. Pretty good for a unit that is over 15 years old! The folks at A Tech Easy Living Store are knowledgeable and very willing to assist in any way they can. Highly recommend visiting the store! They have LOTS of items that can make your life easier in your home!

    Great products! Exceptional Service! I was out of idea for what to buy my wife. I stopped at The Easy Living Store and they had all I needed to make her happy. I would have never thought of a self opening garbage can as a great gift idea, but they said she would love it and she did! I was amazed at everything the store had to offer and how helpful the staff was there. I will go back.

    Todd did an awesome job getting all the components into our basement home theater system that my techy husband wanted plus making it easy for me to run with only one remote. We are very happy! The guys that came to install the systems were polite and patient with me and took time to explain how to work it all!

    I have hard wood floors and Beam has a attachment I bought it at the store and it is a God send I simply love it, it is a dry mop on the vac! Amazing! I'm buying a spare mop when I go back! I bought my vac at Van Berkum's in Pella (Where I live) never will I go back there, they sent my head out for as a loaner and gave me some one elses. How is that for doing business! We argued for a long time about this and was getting no where she kept saying that it was my head, I will never go back there to buy anything! I'm 60 minutes from Des Moines and I will take my vac to be serviced at the Easy Living Store anytime!

    wish every home repair could be this easy!!! My central vacuum was having issues, burned out motor, poor connection and an outlet issue. The technician called me a bit early and said he was ahead of schedule, perfect! He was waiting when i got there, diagnosed it in about 10 minutes, I asked how long it would take to get the parts, he said he had them on the truck! I thought maybe they were generic, but when they made the appt they asked what model. He made the right diagnosis and fixed in about 20 minutes! Couldn't really ask for much more!!! The only remote downside was when I called on saturday the lady asked me to call back on monday. Great service and a great experience!

    I live in a 50's home. I had A Tech come and redo my closets for me. They had great ideas, listened to my input and now I have great closets, even though I live in an older home!
