Hello there, I’m Zach Palmquist, the director of engineering at Safe and Sound Security. Today, let’s dive into the realm of access control installation. Get ready for a friendly and informative session where we’ll unravel some of the most common questions surrounding access control.

Securing Against Unauthorized Access

When it comes to guarding against access codes and entry cards being shared, we’ve got a solution. We recommend moving away from traditional entry codes. Instead, consider implementing readers with keypads. To enhance security, opt for dual authentication. This means individuals need to input their PIN and present a secondary credential, such as a badge, phone, or fingerprint. It’s an extra layer of protection against unauthorized sharing.

Seamless Transition to a New Location

Migrating your existing access control system to a new building is absolutely possible. We’ll efficiently pull out the necessary hardware, including readers, access control panels, and lock hardware. When you move to the new site, we’ll re-run cables and set up new lock hardware if needed. It’s a smooth hardware transfer from one location to another.

Efficient Management Across Multiple Locations

For businesses managing access control across multiple locations, cloud-based systems are the way to go. With a cloud-based solution, you can oversee all your systems, regardless of their geographical spread, from a single interface. Whether you’re accessing it through a web browser or a mobile application, the cloud streamlines your management tasks.

Cloud-Based Access Control: The Advantages

Embracing cloud-based access control offers numerous benefits. It enables remote management, automatic firmware updates, and reduces the need for an extensive IT team. You can even utilize mobile credentials, allowing you to add, delete, and modify privileges from anywhere in the world.

Exploring Biometric Credentials

Biometric credentials have evolved, and facial recognition is a standout option. Our advanced systems can detect multiple faces simultaneously, distinguishing between valid users and unauthorized individuals. Additionally, fingerprint-based access control is widely used and reliable. You can even combine these biometric methods for enhanced security.

Tailoring Access Control for Multi-Tenant Buildings

For multi-tenant buildings, a video intercom system is a smart choice. Our Swift Lane system offers the perfect blend of a video intercom and access control. You can have video intercoms at entry points, while also deploying badge readers throughout the facility for areas where video response isn’t necessary.
