The demand for access control security systems in the Tampa Bay area and nationally is at an all time high partly due to advanced technology and the response to increased security and safety threats. At STI, we believe in creating safe environments by applying the latest technology in our access control systems. Here’s a closer look at why access control could be a vital component to your home, business, or organization.
What is access control?
Access control is a security system that enables an authority or business to control access at specific dates and time to certain areas of a community, building, or residence.
Why is access control so important?
Having the ability to control who comes into your building at any point in time is critically important for the security, safety, and health of those who work or spend time in a facility. Any business or organization with heavy foot traffic will particularly benefit from access control.
How does access control work?
There are three factors that authenticate information with access control devices: something the user knows (password, pass-phrase, PIN), something the user has (smart card of key fob), and something the user is (fingerprint). This access control technology is applied to the products and quality installations offered at STI that include card readers, biometric readers, video door phone, electric door locks, gate entry systems, magnetic locks, and exit buttons.
Who is a candidate for access control?
If you answer yes to any of the following questions, then one of our access control systems is an investment you may want to consider.
1. Do I need audit control, i.e. records of the time and dates of every opening or attempted opening of a door?
2. Should certain employees have different access privileges based on time and day they work?
3. Does a lost or stolen key result in an immediate and costly security threat to my home or facility?
We’ve had the pleasure to supply and install access control systems to a wide range of clientele in Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg and across the country including residential, commercial, and government applications.
