In today’s uncertain economic climate, many homeowners and businesses are concerned about the chance of a rise in crimes. Due to this, they are trying to ensure safety of their property: a crucial facet of this is installation of a door entry system.
Door entry systems refers to mechanical or electronic methods that control access to a house: They can also be called door safety systems or door access methods. Some time back, they were commonly installed by big businesses or in large-scale residential but improvements in technology combined with increased efficiency in mass production methods now ensure that a homeowner with a modest income can use some kind of door entry system, resulting in a more sense of security.
A door entry system can be installed in buildings or building complexes of various sizes. The simplest form are the intercom systems which can be set up for protection of single properties: these allow the homeowner to permit access after either talking to the visitor through an intercom, viewing them through a video display, or a combination of the two. Next, low rise systems are used in low rise blocks of domestic properties, or medium-sized firm buildings with numerous entry points or offices. Lastly, high rise systems are complicated systems that permit access management for full-scale high rise housing developments along with large business buildings with many offices and entrance points, as well as sites with several company structures that are close to one another.
Regardless of the size of property being protected, there are a wide variety of door entry systems which could be installed. The most basic is a simple intercom system: that allows the resident to talk to the visitor through an intercom. Video entry systems are an extension of intercom systems that add the function of letting the resident see the visitor, through a conveniently placed video monitor.
For large businesses, keycard or Keypad systems might be more suitable since they give more freedom for your visitor: instead of relying upon the resident to grant entrance, access might be obtained from putting a number into a keypad or swiping a card through a card reader. This lets the resident be free to do other things instead of monitoring access and the latter may allow varying levels of access to a building. In this manner, different kinds of people or employees could be controlled in their movement with minimal fuss.
A new evolution is the higher implementation of proximity detectors. Here, visitors only carry an object that enables access. When the visitor or employee comes close to the proximity detector, it automatically detects the object being carried and opens the door. This method is especially beneficial in loading bays where it’s desirable that motorists gain entry without leaving their vehicles, for instance in high-security places.
