How Access Control Keeps You and Your Building Safe
Now more than ever, it is important to feel safe and secure in your home during the Stay at Home orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those living in a gated community or multi-dwelling unit (MDU) such as an apartment or condominium complex, should be familiar with identification-type devices used to enter the neighborhood or building — either a code that needs to be inputted manually or a fob that needs to be scanned to safely enter a gate, elevator, or door. Whether you manage a building, or are a resident of a building, your safety matters.
If you’re a facility manager and looking to increase safety in a building or residential community, our access control technology can help keep residents safe by only allowing those with the proper credentials or permissions to enter the building. Our new entrant, the Linear® Entry Pro telephone-entry system, is browser-based and features an intuitive user interface with crystal clear two-way audio and multi-door access all in one system.
A telephone-entry system provides peace of mind to residents while they stay home and reassures the notion that they can still get the things they need, for example groceries, food, and other essentials, while staying safe. Telephone-entry systems make it simple for building residents to communicate with a delivery worker and eliminates the need to provide personal information such as your phone number or unit number. In just a few minutes, a delivery person can scroll through the names listed in the system and select the person they are delivering to, which will then connect them together and allow the resident to grant that person access into the gate or door. This is just another example showing how telephone-entry systems are simple, safe and reliable!
We understand the challenges of staying home and the effects it can have on someone from a personal and professional standpoint. Staying social and engaging with friends, team members, and other companies is beneficial during these times.
