Access Control Systems for Retail Stores

Access Control Systems for Retail Stores

Access control systems have been around for quite some time, and many large retail stores will include these on their ‘staff only’ doors. There are various types of these systems available, including digital keypads, proximity readers, swipe card readers and finger print recognition systems among others.

All of which offer a good degree of security, whilst digital keypads tend to be the most common. The only issue with these is that you will regularly have to change the codes when your personnel changes, so you have to keep up to date.

Key fobs are ideal because they offer quick access, whilst fingerprint recognition systems can take a few attempts, depending on the quality of the access control system. Swipe card readers can be just as useful as key fobs, but both of these can go ‘missing’ so you will need to deactivate fobs and cards when they become ‘lost’ or ‘misplaced’.
