4 Benefits To Having Access Control To Your Home

April 10, 2018

When it comes to home security, access control is your first line of defense. It also provides a great convenience for home and business owners. Access control can help you determine who has access to your property and when.

ICU Protection offers top-of-the-line access control technology in the Little Rock metro area. We can give you control over how your home is accessed, how the gate around your property is accessed, and even how your garage is accessed.

Here are a few benefits to having access control at access points, and even from the palm of your hand.

1. Convenience.

There are so many conveniences to having access control technology on your home or business. It makes it easier to give contractors temporary access while you are renovating. If you arrive home with a bag full of groceries, proximity technology can unlock the door for you.

It can be in the form of a keypad, fingerprint recognition technology, or proximity. While it is usually not recommended to install proximity access control on residential properties, it is very convenient for large businesses.

Keypads are the most common and the most affordable methods of access control. It is easy to change the code.

2. A rescue for when you forget.

Have you ever found yourself a few hours into a road trip thinking did I remember to lock the front door? It happens to all of us. There are so many things going on in our busy lives, even the simplest things can go unnoticed. Locking your front door is so routine. It is easy to do it without thinking, and not be able to remember doing it later on.

Access control is there to help when you forget or if you forget if you forgot.

3. Safety.

It’s not just about securing doors and other access points to your home or business. The technology can let you know who has accessed your home or place of business.

How do you usually know when you have visitors to your home? Door bells? Barking dogs? Some models of access control technology will even provide video of your front door so you know who is trying to access your home. Check who is at your door from your phone or computer.

4. You save energy.

Like most smart home technology, it will help you save energy. If you know when the building is empty, you can be selective about powering up your HVAC system.
