What is an Access Control System?


At Lock, Stock & Barrel Locksmiths, we’re a family-owned and operated business in Sydney’s North Shore area. We have been keeping homes and businesses safe and secure for over 25 years. Over this period, we have also advised on a wide variety of security systems, including the popular access control systems.

What is an Access Control System?

Essentially, an access control system helps you to control the access into your premises with the use of digital technology. Only those with either a password, FOB or card can gain entry. More advanced systems use facial recognition or fingerprint identification technologies – depending on your needs, this may or may not be suitable for you. With an access control system installed in your home or office, you can choose the most appropriate way of facilitating entry. Gone are the days of keys!

An access control system can be integrated into a variety of other home automation devices, which might include your lighting and other household appliances such as heaters, air-conditioning units or even your entertainment system.

From your smartphone or tablet, you can turn your access control system on or off as well as check the status of your home alarm. It’s the era of smart homes. If it’s beginning to sound all too sci-fi for you, take a look at the list of benefits below.

1. Get Rid of the Keys!

When they are misplaced or stolen, there’s the chance they may land on the wrong hands. Access control systems can mean that there is no longer a need for keys – although, at Lock, Stock & Barrel Locksmiths, we always recommend keeping a spare just in case!

2. Control Access

Giving the relevant people the access to your home of commercial premises will give greater peace of mind. Whether you use the FOB, card or password, you can easily limit access to a select few.

3. Keeping an Entry Record

This is a nice feature which allows you to check who has been coming and going. It can be extremely valuable in a commercial workplace, or even at home, and while you may not have to refer to it very often, the data is available for when you need it.
