Cloud-Based Access Control


San Francisco Bay Area

The Best Cloud-Based Access Control Systems in the San Francisco Bay Area

Access control systems are an indispensable part of commercial security systems and a simple, time-tested concept—for centuries, deadbolt locks and keys were used for this purpose. However, today, modern technology has substantially improved how these systems operate. Enhanced smart cards and “frictionless” security methods, such as biometric authentication and mobile phone-based access, have improved overall safety and user convenience. Additionally, the ability to connect to the cloud has advanced how system frameworks operate.

In busy cities like San Jose, Oakland and San Francisco, cloud-based access control systems are critical, as they enable local companies to operate their security measures in a more centralized and cost-effective manner than many traditional systems could allow. Security 101’s Bay Area office offers expert design, installation, and maintenance of cutting edge, cloud-based access control systems that can greatly benefit any San Francisco Bay Area organization, no matter the industry.

Enjoy reliable security with cloud-based access control

In principle, cloud-based access control systems work much in the same way that conventional server-based systems do—a central framework controls the entryways throughout a facility and a log within the framework maintains who is permitted access. That could be through registered mobile phones—the preferred option for most cloud-based system users—or smart cards or fobs. Once these credentials are presented in the entryway, the system allows the individual to enter.

The advantage of a cloud-based access control system over a traditional one lies in where the framework resides—the former being in an outside data center, while the latter is housed inside the facility. Having the system reside in a remote location assures the cloud-based system is hosted by some of the most fortified data centers available today and that the access control system remains secure.

Intuitive control for both employees and managers

Cloud-based access control systems make security simple for everyone involved:

  • Employees with mobile access don’t have to keep track of a card or fob. By simply opening an app on their phone, they can enter their place of work.
  • Security directors can use a portal on either a computer or mobile device to:
    • Add or remove users’ credentials
    • Enact a lockdown in the event of an emergency
    • Verify that the system is operational
    • Customize users’ credentials so that they can access certain facilities
    • Export access logs
