Care Home Security: Why Access Control Systems Are Key

By admin

Access control systems are crucial to a vast array of businesses and organisations – irrespective of their size or sector.

Access control systems, especially from a digital perspective, enable an organisation to manage access to a certain place or resource – ensuring enhanced security, greater protocols and a far more comprehensive and robust approach than the traditional lock and key/sign in process.

This clearly has a number of benefits, particularly from a security and safety perspective. While access control systems are not a new thing, their importance and sophistication continues to grow in the wake of ever-evolving digital technology.

Of course, the world of physical and digital are moving closer and closer together and from an access control perspective, this can be a positive game-changer for industries such as the care sector.

Care homes, specifically, can be a prime target for criminals or those seeking to do damage as an ineffective (or non-existent) access control system can expose vulnerable people – and as such this can make such places an attractive proposition.

Of course in this day and age, an access control system for a care home can range from a secure login procedure for staff, residents and visitors to something far more wide-ranging and comprehensive – whatever approach is needed, a reputable expert will be able to offer tailored, bespoke solutions to match the need of any given client.

Here are just three reasons why prioritising a digital access control system in a care home situation creates real benefits:

All-encompassing

Wouldn’t it be great to have something that brings all of your potential access security issues together in one place where it can be monitored by the right people from a variety of sources and locations and, importantly, whenever you need it? Modern technology means that today, access control systems can do just that.

Why care home security is key

Peace of mind

In an age of GDPR and increased scrutiny on both physical and digital security, can you afford not to demonstrate that your business adheres to stringent and robust processes backed up by modern and proven technology? Such options can also be very discreet, meaning that residents and staff don’t feel like they are living and working in a high-security environment, while still feeling safe and secure.

Reputation

Residents are not just customers, they are fully invested in you and rely on the care home to ensure and maintain a good quality of life. For family members too, the reputation of a potential care home for their loved ones is crucial and choosing the right one is a decision that ranks up there with the most important they will ever make. Reputation is pivotal and a strong access control system is often front-and-centre on their minds as they assess the safety and wellbeing of their loved ones. It’s also one of the first things they will experience when they walk through the doors – first impressions are everything.
