Card Access Systems

Comparison of new technology vs old

physical security card access control systems

  With the increased development in the technological sphere, security and its method have also gone digital with the employment of technology by security outfits. Over the years, the conventional method of access control was usually a simple lock and a key but today, such method is finally phasing out for more sophisticated methods. With the introduction of electronic controlled doors or computerized doors, the term “card access system or access control system” has been redefined. It is more likely to be referred to as the electronic or computerized card access system. This system makes use of certain electronic access cards in order to gain entrance into a building, place either physically or logically. The focus of this article is on the present electronic or computerized card access system as against the conventional lock and key.
 

Security experts have proven the preference of the electronic access card system over the conventional lock and key system used in the past.

Business Security: Burglar-Proof Your Windows and Doors

 BusinessWindowsDoorsIMAGE

While you can't always predict supply and demand, ensuring the protection of your business is one investment that will always pay off. And according to the FBI, businesses are four times as likely to be burglarized as homes. It only makes sense to safeguard yourself from being a part of that statistic.

Burglars are usually looking for one key feature in any business they "case" — simplicity. The more complicated the target, the higher the risk, and therefore the less attractive the target becomes. Which is why properly securing your doors and windows — the most likely and visible means of entry into your business — is so important.

Here are some business security measures that can help burglar-proof your windows and doors.


Securing your windows

Newer windows made of hard-to-break glass or clear plastic is the best place to start. Laminated glass or clear acrylic plastic are good options. Laminated glass has plastic sheets between layers of glass. This glass looks a lot like safety glass, but without the easy shatter; it can handle repeated blows. Clear acrylic plastic is also shatterproof but susceptible to scratching.

Your windows should also have locking mechanisms that close securely and don't need to be "forced.” Don’t rely solely on the locks supplied with your windows, though. It’s likely they aren’t enough, and extra protection will be needed.

If possible, add a security bar on side or rear windows, and other windows out of view of passersby that a burglar might try to break to enter your business. Make sure the retaining bolts can’t be removed from the outside. (But do keep in mind that bars must comply with Fire Code requirements for inside release to allow escape in the case of a fire.)
