Access Control is a secure and easy way for property management companies to manage access to business or rental properties. Designed to work with the alarm.com platforms used by Johns Brother Security, Access Control allows designated users to access smart door locks, surveillance cameras, thermostats, and more on every property in your portfolio from the convenience of your smartphone. Here are a few of the incredible features it allows you to control:
– Entry and exit: Access Control allows you to provide different key codes to each member of your staff, including cleaning services contractors or your maintenance workers. It keeps track of what code was entered on each lock and measures the amount of time between when the lock was accessed and when the door was relocked. This can be helpful for assessing job performance, and it can let you know if a rental unit is still occupied before providing access to incoming guests.
– Remote access: For people who do not have a key code and need to enter a unit—for example, if new furniture is being delivered—you can access security cameras to see they have arrived, remotely unlock the door to let the movers in, then relock it when they leave. For new personnel on your team who will need key code access, you can use Access Control to assign codes remotely. If an employee leaves your company, you can quickly delete their access code. You can even set various degrees of access if you only want certain employees to be able to use their code during regular business hours.
– System reset: In the case of vacation rentals, you can assign new codes for each renter, then delete the code after the rental time is over. You can also remotely check that the door was locked when the renters leave, as well as setting the thermostat to an energy-efficient level, and arm the security system.
Access Control is an amazing tool to help increase property rental efficiency and expand sales opportunities. Contact Johns Brothers Security to learn more about the full range of services Access Control can provide, and how it can help your business work smarter.
