What are the benefits of Access Control Systems?

Comprehensive access control systems provide numerous benefits to businesses, including:

Improved Security

Access control systems allow businesses to restrict access to their premises or systems to authorised individuals only, making it more difficult for unauthorised people to gain access to sensitive information or assets.

Increased Productivity

Access control systems provide businesses with an efficient and automated way to manage employee access. This reduces the amount of time and effort required to manage access rights, allowing employees to focus on their work and increasing overall productivity.

Reduced Risk

With access control systems, businesses can create a detailed audit trail of who accessed what and when, reducing the risk of theft, fraud, or other types of security breaches.


Access control systems can be customised to fit a business’s specific needs, allowing them to define access levels based on roles, departments or specific tasks.

Remote Access

Many access control systems allow businesses to manage access remotely, providing them with the flexibility to manage access rights from any location and at any time.


Access control systems can be more cost-effective than traditional security methods like physical keys or security guards. They reduce the need for additional staff to manage security and can be easily scaled as a business grows.

General questions about CCTV services

What is access control, and how does it work?

Access control is a security technique used by businesses to control who can enter their premises or access their systems, applications and data.

It works by using electronic devices, such as key cards, biometric readers or pin codes, to verify the identity of individuals attempting to gain access. Once verified, the system can either grant or deny access based on the permissions assigned to that individual.

There are different types of access control systems available, and we offer a selection of systems here at ClearView, explore our range of solutions here. The best type of access control system for your business depends on factors like your business size, security needs, and budget.
