1.    Evaluate the installation place – The first step to start with is to evaluate the place where you plan to install. Where will it be installed? On how many floors will it be installed? What is the material of door on which it will be installed? Which type of access locks can be installed on your door material? The mechanism and material of the access control system you choose should be sturdy enough to withstand the extreme weather conditions. Evaluate all these pointers to identify your exact need.    

2.    Chart down your access policies – Every company has a different working system norms guideline. To select an access system, you must know how frequently your firm recruits new people. If the access rules differ as per the job roles, your system must take that in consideration as well. 

3.    Define the path of installation – It is really important to set a timeframe in which you expect the access control system. This will assure that the system gets in place from the start, which will help your employees adapt to it faster. Have a proper plan of which type of access system you want, from which brand, which type of material should it be made of and other details. Make the needed arrangements in your infrastructure to ease the installation process.

4.    Types of access control system –Discuss what type of features are need in the access control system and how many employees have to be registered in the system. Also how you want the employess to have access for example – Card only access, finger print access or pincode access  

5.    Select a vendor – Selecting a vendor is as important as selecting which access control system you are buying. A right vendor will not only help you to choose and understand the access control system for your company but will also be useful to get after sales service. Having installed an access control system is a long-term investment and so you must research well about the vendor options available before deciding.

6.    Get a quote – Getting a quote is a step that people usually prefer to consider as the first step. Although, we strongly believe that it should be the last one for the reason that buying an access control system merely because it is cheap can land you in greater expenses in future. Consider the requirement of your premises, access policies, and other important factors discussed above while deciding. This will help you to get a system that will prove to be beneficiary in a long run.

Having an access control system will surely help you ease a lot of processes but for that first you need to have a right access control system. And following these steps will simplify the process of finding the right system.
