Why Use Door Entry Systems?
Whether it be for commercial or residential purposes, a door entry system is vital to a multi-tenant building. Door entry systems increase security by keeping unauthorised personnel out of the building, thus reducing the opportunity for theft and vandalism.
Should the access system stop working, it may keep tenants or employees from entering, or trespassers may be allowed in. Subsequently, AST London details the benefits of door entry systems, and why it is vital to employ proper maintenance strategies for your security.
Improved Surveillance and Visitor Log whilst door entry systems are designed to deter criminal activity and prevent crime in the building, they also provide a surveillance purpose for any emergencies that do occur. An electronic trail of who accessed what, when and where is created even in a criminal crisis for you to review at a later stage. Video surveillance cameras can be integrated with your door entry systems to create a seamlessly secure environment.

Maintenance of Door Entry Systems
It is important to remember that door entry systems are heavily used points of your security setup. Some doors can be accessed hundreds of times a day, and the resulting wear and tear on the system can cause it to be compromised.
Door entry systems protect tenants from unauthorised personnel and therefore cannot fall into disrepair, unless a hazardous situation occur. Regular maintenance is therefore very important for a reliable security system. Door access systems should be checked at least once a year to keep your security at a maximum. AST offers a range of comprehensive maintenance plans to keep you covered!
