Access control is the mechanism of managing access through authorization to assets in an organization. To provide access to authorized people while keeping anyone unauthorized out of a small office, you don’t need large networked systems for multiple buildings. For random guests, you don’t even need to issue a card pass or a key fob. Locking and unlocking the doors can be done remotely from a single software point of control run by a single person.
This is a big time saver. Instead of having your colleague run up and down the building to unlock the door for everyone, you can spend those hours in a more productive way and cloud-based access control solutions can allow you to integrate the software with your current visitor management software.
In this way, apart from the regular benefits of electronic access control systems, you also get a cost-effective office security solution that will work on just one door and can scale up indefinitely.
