Access controls enable you to see who is coming and going from your home and when. This alleviates worry and guesswork when it comes to the safety of your family and property.  Below we outline how access controls work and how they can be applied to your daily life.

Two Types of Access Control

There are two primary types of access control: unique and temporary codes.

Unique Codes

Unique codes are great for households with multiple residents, or those who use caregivers or other service professionals on a regular basis.  Each person you designate to have access receives a unique code. Then, every time they use their codes to activate or deactivate the system, the activity is archived in an access log. This allows you to see who has entered your home and when.

Temporary Codes

A slight variation, temporary codes are unique codes that expire on a designated date. These codes are useful for babysitters, house sitters or other temporary service providers.  Temporary codes give you peace of mind. If anything goes wrong, those left in charge have access to the security panel. However, after their duties are complete, access is revoked.
