  3. Easy access: The days of having to re-key locks are over. Once an employee is let go, their access can be removed with a couple keystrokes. If you are away on vacation and want a service person to have access you can allow them access without having to give them a key.
  4. Oversight: Do you want to know the date and time someone came into your building or went through a particular door? With managed access control that information is readily available as it is stored in either the control panel or remote database. This can be used for Time and Attendance at the office or just to see what time your kids got home from school.
  5. Remote Programming: All programming for your doors can be controlled by either you or by an administrator. All changes and data are updated in real time. If your business is closing unexpectedly for inclement weather you can lock all your doors with a simple schedule change. From your corporate office three states away, your HR person can add access for the new hire.
