Your business is growing, and you are moving into a larger facility. That’s fantastic news and a huge step forward. But as you’ve probably already discovered (or are about to discover), there’s an entire host of protocols that need to be met, including installing an access control system. Four employees with a front door key just won’t cut it any more.
“I can probably do that myself,” you might say. Or “I know a guy.” Not so fast. There are a lot of questions to be answered, and a majority of the answers should be left to professionals in access control system installation.
Small Questions, Big Impacts
Let’s start simple. Do you know the laws and licenses involved with access control system installation in your state? Your county? Your city? What about state building codes? Are you meeting those? Do you need a permit? What kind? You need to know the answers to all of these questions before you get started with the installation.
There’s also a general safety concern. Improperly installing locks in a public space, for example, could endanger lives. If the power goes out or there’s a fire and the work has been done improperly, you could be looking at a disaster. Do you have a battery backup in place? How often should you check it to make sure it’s functional?
Choosing an Access Control System Installation Professional
So what should you look for in a professional installer? Make sure to get the answers to these questions before you make your decision:
If any of these questions can’t be answered to your satisfaction, find someone else. Access control is a serious matter for any business. Don’t leave this in the hands of someone who could put your facility and livelihood at risk.
