What is an access control system?

Access control systems regulate who can or cannot enter specific areas. They encompass a variety of software and devices for entry regulation—including data-containing credentials, credential readers at access points, electronic locks at access points, and on-site or remote control panels that make final access judgments.

These components work together to keep entrances locked until presented credentials are authenticated by readers and transmitted to control panels for confirmation of their access privileges.

How Access Control Installation Works

Here's a high-level overview of the Mammoth Security access control installation process:

Assessment: A professional access control installer begins with a thorough site survey to determine the best tools and strategies for the location’s specific layout, security posture, and access control needs.

Design: Our access control systems are designed and customized to ensure they’ll fit your premises perfectly and cover all your security vulnerabilities.

Installation: Our expert technicians handle the installation, focusing on both technical and aesthetic considerations.

Testing and Training: After installation, rigorous testing is conducted to make sure your system is optimized.

Training: Your staff will receive complimentary training to effectively use any system we install.

Why You Need Professionals to Install Access Control

Here's a deeper look into why opting for professionals is a smart idea when it comes to commercial-grade access control installation.

Electricity Risks

The installation of access control systems involves intricate electrical work. Professionals are trained to handle live wires, circuit boards, and other electrical components safely.

The expertise of the Mammoth Security team, in particular, ensures a smooth installation process that safeguards against potential electrical accidents that could have dire consequences.

Warranty Preservation

Access control systems are sophisticated pieces of technology that come with manufacturer warranties. However, these warranties often include stipulations that require installation by certified professionals.

An incorrect or amateur installation can void these warranties, leaving your business to shoulder the cost of repairs or replacements.

Regulatory Compliance

Commercial access control systems must adhere to local, state, and federal regulations, which can include building codes, fire safety standards, and data protection laws. Our installation team at Mammoth Security can help you comply with regulations in Connecticut to avoid heavy fines, legal action, or a tarnished reputation.

While Mammoth Security helps clients achieve regulatory compliance by steering them away from problematic installation ideas, Mammoth Security is not qualified to provide legal advice.

If you have questions about the law or its nuances, seek counsel from a qualified legal expert in your jurisdiction.

Security

Last but not least, the most compelling reason to opt for professional installation is the direct impact it will have on the security and integrity of your access control system.

DIY and amateur installations often lead to critical security vulnerabilities, including improper programming, unsecured access points, and flawed system configurations. Such vulnerabilities can then be exploited by unauthorized individuals to cause harm.

In contrast, the Mammoth Security team leverages its comprehensive understanding of security principles and access control technologies to make sure the systems they install are airtight.

Top 5 Access Control Installation Benefits
