Today’s access control systems rely on modern technology to function at their highest capabilities, and this technology can offer a lot of benefits. However, without routine access control system maintenance the technology will be of little consequence. Preventive access control system maintenance is the routine servicing of a door access system carried out on a scheduled basis to ensure that the system is in full working order as it should be. This access control system maintenance is a thorough check to prove that all components in the system are working perfectly and maintain the good performance as it was originally installed. However it is important as well managing central system processes and maintain database and other similar factors.
Central systems maintain a database of those people which is used to control the access of authorized people into buildings or into specific areas within the building. It is very important to update the database with current information. Because employee’s information who leave the company must be deleted from the system in order to prevent them from gaining access later.
With large database in an access control system, sometimes it might be difficult to keep track of all the changes so there is a possibility that some changes may slip by. So, you should have preventive access control system maintenance to make sure that all employees’ information in the database is up to date.
It is also important to keep up the backup of the database so that if there is any system failure and information is lost, the backed up data can be restored to assign staff to reenter data for all employees.
Back up should be done on monthly basis but those large companies that have a higher turnover are suggested a weekly backup to avoid any risk. In either case, it is an important way to prevent the loss of database information and keep a facility working properly.
