Safety is an important consideration for homeowners everywhere. We all want our homes safe, after all.
Electronic access control systems provide an unmatched level of protection for your home and family. Not only that, but the technology makes your home security much more convenient and easy to use.
Here are all the benefits of installing electronic access control for your home.
Features and benefits of electronic access control
Installing electronic access control systems in your home has the potential to improve your security, your lifestyle, and save you money on your insurance.
The main focus of access control systems is a range of features which improve home security. Electronic door locks allow you to give temporary access to guests and tradespeople so you don't have to worry about someone making a copy of your keys.
You can keep track of everyone coming and going, motor your home remotely, view live camera footage, and more.
We expect the very best technology in our phones, computers, and even TVs. So why not your home as well? Home automation systems allow you to change the colour of your lights with your smartphone and your washing machine can send you a text message when it finishes a load. Pretty cool, right?
Internet connected devices and appliances, also known as the Internet of Things, is becoming more and popular. Electronic access control is becoming an essential part of the connected lifestyle of many people. For example, your electronic door locks can communicate with the rest of your house and turn off lights and air conditioning when you leave the house.
One of the best advantages of installing access control systems is that insurance providers recognise the increased security and reduced risk burglary. This means that you may be able to get a lower premium.
Insurers all have their own policies, so always check with them to find out how you can save money on your premiums. Find out more about how to reduce your premiums with access control.
Demand has never been higher
According to research by Persistence Market Research, the global electronic access control industry will be worth $41 billion ($31 billion US) by 2019 with an annual growth rate of 12.6%.
The report also identifies the Asia-Pacific region as having the highest growth rate of 16.7%. This shows that there is very strong demand for these systems in Australia.
Having electronic access control systems installed in your home will be an important factor when it comes time to sell. More and more buyers will be looking for these systems as par of their "must haves" list. Being ahead of the game could increase the interest in your property and add a little more competition at the auction.
