Many people consider access control systems to be beneficial only in a business environment – but access control can be a useful security tool in the home as well. You can utilize access control solutions to help keep the main entry and exit points of your home secure. And you can even tailor an access control system to control various parts of your home. For example, if you have a safe in your closet that you would like to restrict access to, installing an access control terminal in that room can be beneficial. Similarly, if there are rooms of your home that you’d want to keep children out of, such as your home office, access control terminals can help here as well.
Additionally, access control systems could make it easy for a friend or neighbor who is watching your home for you when you go out of town. Instead of needing to give them a key to your home and worrying about them duplicating the key, you can give them their own temporary access code, which automatically expires when you return home from your business trip or vacation, at a predetermined time that you specify.
