A beginner’s guide to access control and building site security
All companies, whether they are small,
medium of large all face security concerns in various forms. For one, employee theft in small businesses
has risen by an alarming 15% year on year.
While many large corporations hire security personnel to help prevent
this type of theft from occurring, the security of assets owned by many small
and medium businesses is often left to the office manager or an admin assistant
To enhance the security measures which are
suitable for small and medium businesses, there are various electronic devices
available that can help to control access to the building or construction site-
such as building site
CCTV and even scaffold
alarms. These construction
site security measures not only allow only authorised personnel onto your
property, they also protect your site from the threat posed by external
Some of these site security systems work by
alerting security staff if a door is forced open, as well as raising the alarm
for internal threats such as if a door
has been propped open- leaving your building or site vulnerable.
If you have valuable equipment or other
items that you wish that your employees not to have access to, some electronic
systems raise the alarm if someone if trying to gain access to this particular
room- keeping your property safe. Some
of the most basic and easy to use access systems are operated using a pin code,
or other access equipment such as key cards or tags so that only authorised
people are able to gain access to a site.
Often access control systems are made up of
the following components;
Some certain access control systems also
need a computer to be operated- browser based systems are usually recommended
by the use of small and medium businesses. This is because these systems are
often easier for people to use as most people are comfortable using a standard
internet browser. Systems which use a
browser to operate also have an added advantage that they can be controlled by any
computer which is connected to the security network.
