1. Residential Access
The most important aspect to be maintained in any housing area or apartment is definitely the safety and security of its residents and tenants. In Malaysia, a reliable card access system will be able to make sure that only authorised individuals and residential tenants will have access to the building itself. This prevents intruders and therefore guarantees security and safety of the premises. Among the many different ways to use a card access system, this is definitely one of the most common one.
2. Office Buildings
Entrances to office buildings can be regulated with the use of a card access system. The system ensures that only authorised personnel and registered visitors will be able to gain access to the building. This ensures security of company personnel and properties in addition to reducing unwanted trespassers. In addition, a card access system allows employers to track movement of individuals such as period and frequency of access towards certain resources or facilities. This will make sure that resources in the company are safe from tamper and misuse.
3. Parking Lots
Another common way we use a card access system is in parking lots and spaces. As urban development brings considerable increase in the number of motor vehicles, it is important for parking lots and spaces to be properly regulated to ensure convenience and feasibility. With the use of a card access system, the number of cars entering and exiting the premises can be tracked and monitored. Premises with large movement of vehicles such as shopping malls and hotels benefit most from this.
4. Payment Card Integration
As this access system uses a card as credential identification, it can also be integrated as a payment card for a cash free transaction. As modern cards are often equipped with microchip technology, the cards can be used as a transactional medium. By eliminating the need to use cash, this type of payment is more secure as each transaction can be traced. This is also useful for employees or visitors to have meals at the cafeteria where they only require their card credentials.
5. Climate Control
A useful but often overlooked way to use a card access system in Malaysia is climate control. Many modern systems allow the integration of the access system with climate control to ensure maximum efficiency. The system can detect when all personnel have left the building and shuts down ventilation and air conditioning systems to avoid additional electrical wastage. With personnel identification, the climate system can also activate in occupied areas only to maximize electric efficiency.
