Choosing the right security doors is the first step to providing the necessary protection to keep people safe within your building. However, there are additional steps you can take to provide an extra layer of protection. Keeping harmful elements and external threats out is the main purpose of security doors, but it is equally important to consider access and who walks in and out of your building. Buildings that do not have security systems are 300% more likely to be burglarized, and implementing a robust commercial building security system can prevent security breaches and ensure that only authorized individuals are able to access your building. Openpath offers a range of security devices for doors that meet all types of security needs. The system is versatile and can be applied for various uses, from commercial and enterprise to residential. The devices also have built-in features and can work as a complete access control solution, so the hassle of extra wiring and purchasing separate hardware is eliminated. Here are some security elements you can add to your doors to enhance security:
Commercial door entry systems
For secure commercial access control, consider installing a door entry system that supports a wide range of access options. Openpath’s multi-technology Smart Readers support mobile credentials, as well as physical credentials such as low- and high-frequency key cards and fobs.It is important to consider what type of lock mechanisms, such as magnetic locks versus electric strikes, you’d like to install for your doorsas a less-than-secure lock can render your investment in a security door ineffectual. For fast and reliable access, Openpath’s patented Triple Unlock technology is rated at 99.9% reliability, and races Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and cellular signals simultaneously. Access is always granted to authorized users, even when power is out or the internet is down. Plus, the Smart Readers come in compact devices, making it effortless to find a space to mount the readers. With a snap-in mechanism, installation is quick and easy.
Video surveillance and intercom systems
In some cases, businesses want to provide an added layer of security on top of having a secure door entry system. Business video camera systems can provide strengthened security through visual verification. This technology allows you to see exactly who is attempting access to your building and the entry activities that take place at your door. A high-definition camera in your video surveillance system can provide the clearest identification, and a wide viewing angle ensures that every corner where access events take place is clearly displayed without any obstructions.
Openpath’s Video Intercom Reader Pro features a super high-definition 5MP camera with 136-degree viewing angle for the clearest visual verification. The all-in-one device not only provides visuals, but also serves as a doorbell, smart intercom, and multi-technology reader that supports a wide range of access options. The Video Intercom Reader Pro also features innovative voice AI call routing, a technology that streamlines security procedures and visitors access. It is a particularly useful tool for commercial buildings with heavy traffic.
Keyless entry for convenience and safety
Hands-free access and keyless door entry methods have become a must in access procedures, especially in recent years, when a tactile form of access can be unsafe. This access method is also convenient and allows for a more frictionless access experience. Openpath’s Wave to Unlock feature provides a touchless experience that complements your security doors. With a simple wave of the hand or smartphone to an Openpath reader, access is immediately granted. There is no need to take out your phone and open an app, or even have the phone in active mode.
Finding the right security door for your business takes a lot of research, and there are many factors to weigh in before making a purchase. When you have made ample investments to find the right security door, think of adding security components like video surveillance, commercial intercom system, and multi-technology readers as a way to protect your investment and add an extra layer of security.
