FAQ

An access control point—also known as keyless entry— can be a door, a gate, a turnstile, an elevator, or another physical barrier where access is controlled by an electronic locking device instead of a manual key.

To gain entry, the user must present the appropriate credential—usually a card, key fob, or a numerical code, and in some cases, a fingerprint (known as biometric). The credential would be presented to a proximity reader, or the code would be entered, in order for access to be granted to the building or area.

Access control systems are popular in a number of industries, including banking, hotels, government, healthcare, retail, and residential high-rise buildings.

SPL is a trusted name throughout Southern Queensland and Northern New South Wales for access control and electronic door security.

Access control, using keyless entry, allows you to secure your property for specified use.

You could, for example, specify that certain personnel have access to areas not accessible to others. This would be the case where stock is locked away to all but authorised personnel.

SPL access control systems cater for every type of property—from residential complexes through to hotels, government buildings, banks and high-security areas.

We are highly regarded for the design, installation and maintenance of keyless entry systems. This is reflected by our involvement in some of the country’s largest projects. Find out more about our project involvement here.

Keyless access control offers the following benefits:

Convenience
Thanks to electronic locking systems, carrying bunches of keys is a thing of the past. In place of this, you can issue cards or codes to your employees to grant them access to various areas of your premises.

Cost-Effective
Being able to grant or remove access to an area through an electronic key card or by changing a numerical code is far more cost-effective. With keyless access control, you won’t be rushing to spend money to have the locks changed if an employee were to leave on bad terms. Their access can be deactivated immediately.

Restrict Specific Areas
Employees in many businesses do not have access to every office and floor. For instance, the HR department has its duty to protect the privacy of staff members, so sensitive documents would need to kept safe. Through individual settings, access control systems allow you to decide on exactly who goes where.

Track Employee Activity & Improve Accountability
When you have large numbers of employees, it’s not always practical to have say, reception staff, responsible for monitoring their coming and going. Access control can do this, even tracking what time staff enter and exit the building.

When employees know that their key access activities are being tracked, complying with policies and practices is generally improved.

Access control also means only authorised personnel can enter the building.

Keyless entry can also provide management with:

Comprehensive End User Management Software
In most instances, an end-user management software package can be installed, allowing access control credentials and permissions to be easily managed by the appropriate staff.

Along with the software, comes security control at your fingertips—the ability to lock and unlock doors, floors and security areas with the click of a mouse.

The keyless entry systems and electronic security equipment supplied, fitted, and upgraded by SPL Ballina Locksmiths are fully compliant with business insurance requirements and with Australian standards. For specific details, please check with your insurance policy provider.
Enhanced Security
With an access control system, you’ll have no worries about keys being copied and the security of your property being compromised. It is almost impossible to copy a key card from an SPL access control system.

Theft is common in the hospitality industry, whether by staff taking stock or guests wandering into off-limit areas and scoring free souvenirs. With keyless entry, you can ensure that the correct people are entering the correct areas.

Streamline Workflow
When a key card system is in use, check-in and check-out procedures become more streamlined for both the guest and the employer. The system can be used to monitor entry by hotel staff into guests’ rooms, such as cleaners.

Cost-Effective
The replacement cost of a key card is less expensive than the cost of replacing a traditional key. With a lost metal key, you have to assume that the privacy of the room or property is compromised. That means paying to re-key the lock for every lost key.

Key cards can be programmed so that access is granted only for a certain period. It’s also easy to remove a card from the system. This means you won’t have a problem when a guest doesn’t return their key card.

In most cases, yes. Whether you own an office complex or a hotel, having an access control system will generally reduce the amount you pay for insurance. Check with your insurer for details and confirmation.

Access control systems are commonly installed in residential apartment buildings, but installing them in homes is becoming very popular.

Carrying large bunches of keys has become a thing of the past and replacing lost keys seems to be an equally unpopular exercise, not to mention fraught with nightmarish repercussions.
