As with any type of technology, there are many rumours floating around about access control cards and systems, many of which are myths. The truth is that having a good system in place has great benefits for your business, so it's best to get the real facts before taking the plunge into a system of your own. To help you with that, we'll take a look at three of the most common myths about these systems and why they are absolutely not true.
1. The cost is crazy
Of course the first thing you always hear is how much it will cost, and immediately you question if it will be affordable or not. The fact is that, even though the initial costs of setup can be a little on the high side, you'll save far more money than you spend. Having a good system and access control cards can keep high risk areas much more secure and cut company theft drastically. That means more money in your pocket because less is walking out the door.
2. They are too complicated to comprehend
Another common misconception about access control cards and systems is that it's hard to understand how the whole thing works and it's a complicated process to deal with. This is also false. The processes are quite easy to learn, and once you have a good grasp of the basics, you can begin to move towards a more complex understanding. Either way, a good professional provider will be able to get your system installed and get you up to speed on how everything works.
3. They don't play well with others
The third myth we tackle today is the big one surrounding integration. Many rumors circulate about access control cards and systems suggesting that you can't use them with what you already have and that you instead have to scrap your old system and start from scratch. This is a complete fabrication. Access control systems do work just fine with existing infrastructures. Choose a good professional installer, and they will be able to analyse your current setup and figure out how best to incorporate the access control features into it.
