Many access control manufacturers now offer web-based and mobile solutions to compete in an increasingly innovative security market. Before upgrading with a new access control company, look for manufacturers that provide a complete access control system, and companies that work with a trusted network of certified local installers. The top access control system manufacturers provide both hardware and software solutions, can scale to accommodate multiple doors, and centralize management of the entire system on a single easy-to-use interface.
With so many options of access control companies to choose from, a professional system integrator can evaluate your needs and help you select the best access control solution. A local access control company can provide a price quote for an access control system depending on the specific needs of the space. For commercial access control manufacturers, there are up-front costs, such as the control panels and reader hardware, installation costs, and usually a per-door and per-user fee to budget for. There are might also long-term costs associated with running an access control system, which will vary depending on the type of system installed. On-premise legacy systems require expensive software installed on local servers, which will require in-person maintenance. Many cloud-based access control companies use a subscription as a service (SaaS) model, giving businesses the flexibility to pay for their access control systems on a monthly or annual basis.
