Almiria specializes in the field of access control systems. This type of system let you control who can unlock doors to gain entry to specific locations by person, day of the week, and time of day. Almiria access control systems are affordable for even the smallest companies, yet scalable to large organizations with multiple locations.
Whether your system uses turnstiles, proximity readers (also known as card access systems), or biometric devices, Almiria security’s consultants and installers specialize in minimizing their impact on a location’s design without sacrificing security. The resulting system is effective, convenient, and discrete.
Some of the many benefits of installing access control over keyed locks are:
- With keys, access is all or nothing. If an employee has a key, he can open a door any time of day or night. With access control, you control when the doors can be used and by whom. And if a key is lost or an employee leaves, your security is severely compromised unless you re-key all of your locks. With card access, simply tell the system to disable the card in question. All other cards continue to work properly.
- Keys can be duplicated where access cards cannot. As well as you have no way of tracking who has a key. Where access control systems create a detailed audit trail so you know exactly whose card opened a door and when. Your employees know this, too, which discourages inappropriate behavior.
- If an employee’s access needs change, the access cards can be quickly reprogrammed.
- No more rings of keys. With access control, one card unlocks every door the employee is allowed to open. There’s no need for separate keys for each lock.
