Arming your access control system’s alarm is an important and necessary feature that works to protect your space. When a home has a security system, for example, the system is not always on — it’s only armed when the owner is gone. This logic can easily be applied to your own security system. During a normal work day, you might not need to have your alarm armed because you and your team will be present.
At other times, though, it’s necessary to have your system’s alarms ready to go. During the evening or on days with high foot traffic, you should consider arming your alarm, which will immediately alert your entire operations team with a message or email as soon as someone attempts to access one of those spaces without the proper security clearance. You’ll be able to protect your restricted amenities even when you’re not around, which is an incredibly powerful tool for protecting your office’s assets.
