If you own a daycare, you need to be sure that the children that you care for can be as safe as possible at all times. Having an access control system installed at the entrance to the daycare can be a great way to ensure that all of the children and your staff are safe. The guide below walks you through a few things you should know about having an access control system installed at your daycare (by professionals such as those from Complete Cabling Solutions Inc.).  

The System Does Not Cause Major Damage to the Building

When an access control system is installed in your daycare, the company will not need to damage your facility. Many of the access control systems work wirelessly so that no wires need to be run through the walls of the facility.

The System Can Be Operated a Few Different Ways

Many of the access control systems that are on the market can be operated through access cards or through passcodes that can be pressed on the keypad of the system that is located near the door to the facility. A unique code or card can be assigned to each family to allow you to track who is coming in and out of the facility at any time.

The System May Work Even if the Power Goes Out

Many of the systems that are available now have battery backup power supplies to ensure that the system will work even if the power goes out. This can be a very good feature to have because you want to be sure that the facility is secure at all times.  

Having the System Could Lower Your Insurance Costs

Having the system installed in your facility could lower the insurance costs that you have to pay for your business. Insurance companies look at an access control system as an added security measure that will decrease the chances of any child being taken from the facility by someone that should not have possession of them.

Once the system is in place, the access control company will send an associate to explain how the system works to you. You can then set up all of the parents with an access card or a passcode to use to enter the building safely. Knowing that their children are safe when they are in the facility will give many parents peace of mind and could boost your business once the word gets out to other parents.
