New Access Control Systems Offer Convenience, Peace-of-Mind

DENVER, CO -- Fumbling for keys with an armload of shopping bags is no fun, and lost or stolen office keys can be a major security concern. That’s why many commercial property managers, apartment complex operators and even homeowners are turning to electronic access control systems.

Magnetic and infrared cards and key fobs can be designed so that doors and gates will open automatically when the “key” is simply waved near the lock sensor or when a button is pressed on a fob, much like the keyless entry systems on cars. Other types use a magnetic code on a card that is swiped through a reader like those used in hotels. Both can be combined with a keypad that offers a secondary means of access if the key card or fob is misplaced or stolen. And many systems allow for a single “key” to be de-activated, eliminating the need to change locks and re-issue new keys as is the case with lock-and-key devices in the event a “key” is lost or stolen, an employee is terminated, or an apartment is vacated.

Access systems can even be designed to tie into alarm systems to de-activate alarms them when the proper card or fob is detected, or equipped with a panic button to call for help in an emergency.
