Wireless access control systems are quickly moving past the early adopter stage and becoming a popular choice for access control solutions. In fact in some cases, they may be the only choice. Where implementation of wired access control was difficult if not impossible, wireless access control can go with ease. Learn more about the advantages of wireless access control systems in this week’s blog.
The Advantages of Wireless Access Control Systems
Hardwired access control systems are notorious for their high price. Installation of wired systems involves labor intensive work necessary to route the wires through areas of the building which are difficult to access. This increases both installation time and price. The installation of wireless systems is not nearly as intensive, which makes it faster and more affordable.
New Areas of Control
Another downside of wired access control systems is that they simply can’t be installed in some cases. It may be that installation would involve running wire through an area in the ceiling where there is asbestos, if the building is old. Elevator shafts are also difficult locations for wired access control, though elevator access control is an essential in some facilities. Wireless access control permits the installation and use of access control systems in locations that traditional could not accommodate wired access control.
Wireless systems can easily integrate with most access control systems in use today. This does several things. First, it eliminates a number of start up issues due to incompatibility. Second, it cuts costs by eliminating the need for another complete system. And third, it reduces the inevitable confusion that comes with using separate but co-existing access control systems.
