ASK TO VENDOR
Perhaps you are currently planning to install access control systems only. However, there is no harm in providing time to discuss with vendors to find out their opinions and their solutions about your plan so they understand the things you focus on and your goals for setting up. In addition, by discussing, you will gain new knowledge useful for your needs either for now or in the future.
2. CREATE NOTES / ARCHIVES
Access control systems are growing rapidly and complex. That is why it is important in having archive records for each element in the built system. Starting from card readers to power supply and network cable. Make sure your vendor makes a record that will make it easier for you if at any time there is a problem or when you want to upgrade / update the security system in the future. If possible, request a copy of the note as your archive.
3. PRECIOUS SECURITY FACTORS
If the job is directly related to the network, ask the vendor to propose an alternative solution to keep the unwanted things related to your company’s data.
4. ASSUME ALTERNATIVE USE OF DEVICES
Many are thinking of using an access control software with a standard device for a cost reason rather than investing in a device supported by the firmware. It looks cheaper in the beginning, but when there is a problem, the costs incurred can actually be more expensive. Ask for an alternative technology-based device to your vendor that they think can meet your needs and wants but with an affordable budget.
5. ALWAYS THINK TO AHEAD
Consider the possibility in the future whether you will update or improve your current security system. Is there a possibility in the future that your business will need a more sophisticated or integrated security system? Make sure you always use tools and systems that are easy to combine, add and interact.
