Access Control: is the ability to permit or deny the use of a particular resource by a particular entity. In terms of physical security, the term access control refers to the practice of restricting entrance to a property, building, or location to authorized persons.
At Advanced Protection Services we are "physical security". Our highly trained officers will greet your residents and their guests with courtesy and professionalism. Their knowledge of the property and its activity forms an important vital link between property management/HOA, local law enforcement and our Agency. At Advanced Protection Services our officers don't just work on your property, they become valuable members of your community. Their field duties are supported by a mobile command staff and our operations center at all times.
Whether access is authorized through the use of an electronic gate keypad system or vehicle identification decal, by having an officer present you can control deliveries, direct guests or deny entry to unwanted subjects. Our officers will have the ability to log all vehicle traffic onto property to include license plate information, vehicle description, time, and destination.
Entrance gates by themselves cannot adequately keep unwanted parties from gaining access to your property. Residents and non-residents alike will "piggyback" through an open gate. This is added stress for the mechanics of the gate and increases maintenance costs over the long run. Similar scenarios are replayed when pedestrian/bicycle gates are added to the access control point. Placing an officer at the gate, who is making face to face contact with people, minimizes un-authorized access, allows for faster calls to maintenance, and provides your community with real physical security.
