Putting your community first means making them feel confident and secure at your facility. Your members depend on you to support them by creating a safe environment. By prioritizing your facility’s security, you give your members the peace of mind they need for a worry-free experience.
Safety is one of your top priorities at your facility, especially when you’re caring for children. In addition to running background checks and verifying authorized pickups, securing your entrances with door access technology can help keep those within your facility safe. Here are three ways door access technology makes it easy to keep your facility secure and your community safe.
Manage External Access
Establishing who has access to your facility is the first step to improving your security. By limiting access to your verified members, you can stay aware of who’s visiting your facility at all times.
By using key cards, you can manage which members have access to your facility without overcomplicating the check-in process. Digital access points keep your parking garage and external doors secure by verifying each member that visits your facility.
Control Internal Flow
When you have children in your care, your internal security is just as important as your external access. There are some areas within your facility that visitors shouldn’t have access to.
To keep children safe, you need to control the flow of movement. Restricting access to certain areas within your building is vital to maintaining a safe environment for children, members, and staff.
Custom access points can keep members from wandering into the wrong places. Do you need to keep unchaperoned children away from your pool? Instead of hanging up a sign, you can limit pool access with a key card scanner. Whether you’re securing your locker rooms based on age or directing members away from staff-only offices, internal access points create a safer environment within your walls.
Defend Against Theft
It isn’t just your members that benefit from security. Community centers can often be targets for theft, so it’s important to set up systems that can protect your members’ belongings.
You can use custom access points to limit access to storage areas and locker rooms. The additional layer of security within your facility can keep your equipment and belongings safe from sticky hands. When your members know their personal items are safe, they’ll feel more confident.
When it comes to serving your community, keeping them safe is one of your top priorities. With the help of tech, you can strengthen your security and give your members some peace of mind.
