Understanding High-Security Locks & Card Access Solutions

Let’s face it. Security is pretty important in today’s world, especially if we're talking about the Tampa, Wesley Chapel or Brandon areas. Whether you're looking to secure a bank vault or your front door, a whole lot goes into the design and installation process of any high-security system. So how do you know what’s right for you? Let’s break it down.

What Can An Electronic Access Control System Do For Me?

Great question! First, it’s important to understand how an Electronic Access Control System (EACS) actually works. Unlike a traditional mechanical lock system which comes with a whole slew of weaknesses- which we won’t get into here, EACS is a security solution we can provide that gives you full control over the physical security of your business. You can restrict access based on a variety of guidelines and limitations, like who, what, where, and when. Most EACS offer an audit trail or detailed report for every time the door is accessed or denied, and by whom. This allows for greater accountability and security so that if an incident occurs, you have an accurate account of the who, what, and when. You can even delete or assign credentials, making this EACS perfect for larger offices and companies with many employees.

Time for Installation!

Our EACS's have a broad range of customizable and integratable hardware when it comes time to install. Hardware comes in many styles and colors to match your office or home décor. You can get a standalone lock for one or more locks to be programmed, or fully integrated wireless for the programming of every lock in a facility or residential property.

What Are My Options?

Electronic Access Control Systems are high-security locks that come with a great variety of security options.

  • Keypad Access: Requires users to have a designated PIN for access.
  • Magnetic Strip Cards: These require an access card to be swiped through a reader, similar to a credit card.
  • Prox Readers: Allow users to wave a specified credential (such as a card) in front of the lock-mounted reader.
  • Biometrics: You’ve probably seen these in action-packed films. They require a programmed template based on fingerprints, retinal scans, or other biometrics. Super secure, and pretty neat too!

You can even use a combination of these and also allow credentials to be valid at multiple locations. Now that you know a little bit more about your options, let Cheap Lock & Key make a seamless installation of the best security for you or your business.
