Is Smart Access Control the Missing Link to Your Security System?
Our Commercial Access Control Solutions Offer Security-Enhancing Benefits that a Physical Key Can’t
Access control innovations have always been evolving. What started as a wooden pin lock some 6,000 years ago is now a multitude of solutions that don’t require a physical key at all, such as electronic keycards, PIN codes, facial recognition, and more.
If your Jacksonville, FL business is still using the traditional lock-and-key method for access control, you could be putting your staff and assets at risk. Smart access control solutions offered by our team at Atlantic Security feature security-enhancing benefits you simply can’t get from a physical key.
Read below to explore the benefits of integrated access control and why you should incorporate this solution into your commercial security system.

Control Who Has Entry Access & When
By using keycards or PIN codes for entry, you are in complete control of who has access to your building or other private rooms throughout your office. Restrict unauthorized access and reduce potential theft by keeping your entries secure and accessible only to those with active keycards or PIN codes.
Smart access control allows you to set up time schedules for staff and short-term access for visitors. If an employee or visitor loses their keycard, you can deactivate it right away and create a new one for them. If you prefer a keypad instead, you can create a guest PIN code that expires after a certain period of time. Never again will you have to loan out a key and hope it doesn’t get lost or fall into the wrong hands.
Remotely Lock and Unlock Entrances
Not sure if you or your staff locked up before leaving? You can remotely secure your property from the convenience of your smartphone. This feature is also beneficial in the event of an emergency, especially if your building has more than one entrance and needs to be locked up right away. Additionally, if you need to let someone into your building but aren’t there to do it, you can easily use your phone to let them in and lock the door behind them.
Receive Push Notifications
Smart access control keeps you up to date on the events you want to know about, such as when someone is arriving, leaving, or attempting to break in. You can customize how you receive alerts to your smartphone or desktop based on specific events. Want to know when a security breach occurs? Or perhaps you want to know when a certain authorized employee or visitor enters or leaves your property? Whatever the event is, you’ll instantly receive a notification when it occurs.
Integrate with Other Smart Solutions
For improved convenience and business security, you can integrate your access control solution with your surveillance system, fire and burglar alarms, HVAC system, lighting, and more. For example, your lights can turn off and thermostats can adjust to eco-mode when you lock up your building—all in one fell swoop. Additionally, if an anti-duress code is used to enter your building, the code can trigger your alarm and notify the authorities.
Our team at Atlantic Security can customize a security solution that’s perfect for you and your business so you can feel more confident about your staff’s safety and worry less about securing your assets. Take your commercial security system into the future with smart access control.
