Whether yours is a commercial or residential property, security should always be a key concern. Entry phone systems offer a range of benefits, particularly for large apartment buildings, offices, schools, care homes, factories and hotels. Controlling access to the property can help to protect the people that live or work in the building as well as any property stored on the premises.
The benefits of entry phone systems include:
- The ability to ‘screen’ visitors. You will know who is trying to enter the building, allowing you to refuse entry if you wish to do so or buying you time to prepare for the guest’s arrival if necessary. This is particularly useful for secure properties such as care homes and schools, where it is imperative that every visitor is screened. Entry phone systems ensure that the visitor’s identity can be confirmed audibly and by video in some cases.
- Improving security. Instead of having just one door between the occupant and the visitor, entry phone systems typically add an extra layer of security, which may also reduce your building’s or business’ insurance premiums. Improved security is particularly important if late-night entry is required, as certain entrances or codes can be restricted after hours.
- Saving time and effort. If your property is on the eighth floor, it is impractical to have to open the door in person every time someone turns up. Using a phone system ensures that the visitor makes a connection with the person he or she has come to see.
- Cutting out the need for keys. Subject to clearance, people will be able to access the building without relying on keys. This also means that there is no need to change the locks if a set of keys is lost or stolen, as the device can easily be reconfigured. This also means that doors cannot be unintentionally left unlocked.
