A door entry phone system is a great way to protect your business premises from unwanted visitors. With most offices containing high value IT equipment, business owners, facilities managers and building managers often install entry phone systems to protect assets and provide an extra layer of security for employees and visitors.
In addition, you can answer the door without leaving your location, which is important for busy reception staff, who are typically multi-tasking and don’t have the time to keep going to the door to let people in.
It’s not just large companies that benefit from entry phone or video entry phone systems, they also benefit small businesses and residential buildings.
A video entry phone access control system allows you to see your visitor and their ID before they enter the building, so you can ensure that they are who they say they are.
Factors to ConsiderThere are a number of factors to consider in choosing the best door entry access control system for your needs, which will include:-
- Size of the property
- Whether the visitor needs to be seen before they are allowed entry
- Number of offices or flats in the building
- Expected traffic (how many employees/residents/visitors will use the entry phone on a daily basis)
- Cabling needs and access points
