There are many technological wonders in the world today. Not the least among these wonders is the new technologies that exist to allow families and employees to feel a little bit safer within the confines of their homes and workplaces. This is accomplished through a new technology that allows people to unlock a door by entering a key. Well, this is not exactly new technology though it is newly implemented in the average market. For perhaps the first time, this is an affordable option for use as another home or business security measure, even for the smallest of businesses.
More than offering another layer of security for keeping intruders out, there is an added security layer for allowing family members and/or employees in quickly, even when keys are not easily found. Parents will never need to worry about teens forgetting their keys and being locked out. More importantly, families will no longer need to implement a hiding place for keys in this unfortunate event. Cold weather, rain, and panic (because of noises in the night) will no longer mitigate the ability to find keys in the bottoms of purses, handbags, and backpacks-a simple key code is all that will be needed to gain entry.
In addition to this benefit, however, many of these interesting door locks also have the technology to read a card to unlock and a device attached to key fobs. You can also avoid fumbling around in the dark, trying to force the key actually to fit into the lock. This will be taken care of automatically. No more lost time, broken nails, or dropped groceries to gain entry into the home. This home and/or business security feature can eliminate these issues.
For employers who own businesses, this adds another layer of security, as it can be a requirement for entry into the building. Pass out cards to all employees with a unique identifying number, and at any given time, there should be a clear record of who was in the building after hours or who gained early entry into the building. If anything is amiss, there is a record of who came and went when (of course, this isn’t infallible, but it will help if there is a need for this information).
Security is important to all of us in this day and age. In fact, security is probably a greater concern for most at this point than during the height of the Cuban missile crisis. No longer are the unseen enemies far away, but now they can work in the same office or live next door. The bad guys do not always wear black hats, and, unfortunately, they most often do not carry signs around proclaiming their evil intentions. We need to protect our families, our employees, and ourselves from the potential evil within as much as the evil that exists outside our borders. This device allows business owners to closely monitor who comes and goes within their business closely, which isn’t necessarily bad in the modern world.
The technology exists and is now more affordable than at any other time in the past. As a matter of fact, it isn’t much more expensive to obtain this technology than it would be to purchase one of the higher end door locks and deadbolts that are on the market today. For this reason alone, it is a good idea to keep this technology in mind and consider incorporating it into both your home and your business as an added security protocol.
If you consider a security upgrade for your home or business, an electronic entry system is well worth looking into. The benefits go far beyond the typical security measure of keeping those who aren’t exactly invited in and allows record-keeping of those that come and go in businesses and much easier access for homes.
