Let’s take a look at why cloud-based access control systems are taking the world by storm.

Combining the latest technology with advanced software design makes web interfaces much more intuitive than traditional applications, creating a better user experience. In addition, logging into your cloud-based dashboard gives you and your chosen administrators access to all data and system controls for your one unit or multiple-unit business.
Access From Anywhere
Instead of limiting access to a single computer in the office, an administrator can manage cloud-based access control using a browser from any smartphone, tablet, or computer located anywhere in the world. This is particularly helpful if a new employee requires access while you or your administrator is on vacation or for immediately revoking access for a terminated employee.
If an employee leaves the office and forgets to lock the doors behind them or set the security system, you can also perform these functions through remote access.
Security measures include multi-factor authentication methods and encrypted communication through channels like SSL, HTTPS, and TLS. These systems also operate in extremely secure data centers.
Expanding businesses can also control all locations from one device, integrating and managing access control and security systems from any browser and limiting access to various administrative personnel. The system grants each person different levels of power, limiting any security issues while ensuring continuous operations.
Pricing models may be subscription-based, meaning an easy monthly or annual fee. Cloud advantages also mean you no longer require expensive rack storage and hardware servers on-site at every location, systems that can cost tens of thousands of dollars.
This type of hardware also requires regular maintenance, updates, and an IT member to track down malfunctions. For those without internal specialists, an off-site IT personnel may have to take a server down, run maintenance, and update the software in a process that can take hours, if not a full day, leading to lost productivity. Cloud-based systems automatically update every week.
When integrated with other security systems and smart automation, you can control video surveillance and other automated security features from one easy-to-use interface. These systems also provide for seamless integration with other could-based applications, enabling automated workflows.
One of the best features of cloud-based access control is that your company will no longer have to wait for help. Instead, our certified technicians can log in remotely and help with any issues with 24-hour tech support.
