Have You Ever Thought About Going Keyless?

Maybe you have grown tired of rekeying your locks every time an employee loses a key or leaves the company. Or perhaps you simply want to take your business to a new security level. Whatever your situation, keyless entry systems give you an easy way to make your office, warehouse, restaurant, or apartment complex safer than ever.

If you still do not feel convinced, have a look at the list below. This list shows you the advantages that come with having keyless entry locks on your building’s doors.

1. You and Your Employees Do Not Have to Worry About Losing Keys

Even if you employ the world’s most trustworthy workers, they may have a temporary judgment slip and leave their keys behind at a restaurant, on a bench at a local park, or on their car’s hood while they run in for groceries. Human error happens. However, keyless entry locks eliminate the consequences of this particular error.

Additionally, should you have disgruntled employees who sell or lose their keys on purpose, keyless systems prevent the repercussions from that decision as well. You do not have to make every access code or access keycard identical—you can make them unique to each person who visits your place of business.

2. Keys Will Not Break or Jam in the Lock

Sometimes, even if your employees do not lose their keys, they accidentally break the key in the lock or jam the lock instead. As a result, nobody can use the affected door, whether your employees need to enter or leave. You will have to call a locksmith to repair the lock before anyone can come to work or go home.

However, if you have a keyless entry system, you will not have to worry about this problem happening ever again. When keyless locks malfunction, their problems usually arise because of IT-related issues, not hardware ones. Your own IT team can fix the problem quickly and efficiently, and you will not have to pay locksmith fees.

3. You Can Easily Find the Lock Even in Low Visibility

Your business likely has exterior lights. However, while these lights may illuminate the entryway, they may not illuminate the keyhole on your locks, so you and your employees may fumble with the locks in low visibility. On the other hand, most keyless locks have lighted keypads or reader strips, so you will not have to struggle to find the right groove in the door.

4. Every Employee Has a Unique Access Code—So You Can See Who Comes and Goes

As mentioned above, you do not have to give every employee an identical access code or keycard when you have a keyless system. You can give everyone a unique code instead. A unique code allows you to track who enters and exits a building at different times. So, if a crime occurs during any of those times, you know who to track down to get explanations.

Additionally, if you use unique cards or codes and someone accidentally loses his or hers or gives it to someone else, you do not have to rekey your entire business. You simply reset the one code or card, and your business becomes 100% protected again.

5. The Locks Do Not Have Keyholes, So You Avoid Lock Picking

Only the world’s most advanced burglars can pick a keyless entry lock. After all, these locks no longer have a keyhole, so burglars cannot pick the lock with traditional lock picks. They will either need advanced technical training or a stolen code or keycard to get in.

 

The information in the list above represents only a few benefits you could reap when you go keyless. If you would like to learn more, or if you would like to install this technology at your office, call a local locksmith today.
