How can you modernise your Business Security?

Building Security, Newsletter

When it comes to business buildings, they often have a large footfall, so protecting and securing your building is vital. Moving away from the old-fashioned methods of building access is the way to take control of security at the points of access.  

One2Call’s access control systems allow every door to become a virtual security guard, with a range of checks being made before access is granted depending on what best suits your business. This can include the need for fobs, cards, fingerprints, facial recognition &/or QR codes to allow people to pass through a particular entry point. Additionally, alternative access protocols can include human fever screening to detect early sign of illness to help prevent the spread in working environments, protecting your staff and business.  

ID Verification

When it comes to ID verification there are an array of different methods that can be incorporated into building access. Moving away from traditional keys to Fobs &/or Cards offers your business more flexibility as access can be given and taken away, when necessary, in a matter of seconds. 

Likewise, the same flexibility is present with Facial and Fingerprint Recognition. However, these have the added security as they can’t be lost, stolen, or traded. Access is given via a 3D Map of a users face. 

Emergency Controls

The integration of Security and Safety Systems with Building Access can include Fire Alarms, Intruder Alarms and can also be integrated with the added aid of CCTV. In the design process of all Access Control Systems, Safety, in case of Emergency, is paramount.  

The integration of fire alarms into your building access means that all doors default to open automatically when the fire alarm is triggered, allowing for easy exist of the building by everyone, whilst also triggering an alert to emergency services and a roll call of people in the building to Fire Marshall’s and Managers to ensure that everyone is Safe. However, an Intruder Alarm may react differently, setting all doors to Lock when the Intruder Alarm is triggered, alerting the relevant people, triggering the CCTV to record and even sending photos of the intruders via email to on call personnel. Other eventualities can be aligned with your security as requested to improve your building access overall.   

Fever Screening

Since the COVID Pandemic, more business to become aware of the impact of staff illness on a company and its day-to-day operation. This has caused more businesses to incorporate fever screening and sickness precautions into their access control. This includes touch free access, which uses visual readers like Facial Recognition, also eliminating the need for Fobs and Cards which can be lost or forgotten.  

Fever Screening controls can also include Pre-Entry checkpoints to enforce Health and Safety guidance and protect staff and user well-being by preventing access to the building, or specific areas of a building, to reduce the spread of illness.
