Why It’s Important to Protect your Building with Smart Access Control


With today’s prevalence of online shopping, package theft and burglaries has become more of a risk than ever before for residential buildings. If you’re a building manager, you may be wondering how to best ensure that your tenants and property is protected; the best measures that can possibly be taken to implement strong security at your Chicago residential property is to ensure that a smart access control system is installed. There’s myriad security benefits that smart access control systems can offer all forms of residential properties – here’s a guide from the access control installation experts here at Nonstop Locksmith and Security Solutions on exactly why it’s so important to protect your apartment building with access control.

Smart Access Control Minimizes the Security Risks and Cost of Lost Keys

When residents of your property lose their keys, or potentially move out without returning your keys, you will be responsible to tackle the security risks of having keys floating around the area, potentially falling in the hands of criminals. Additionally, you will be responsible for the cost of lock changes and procuring new keys – costs that can quickly snowball. However, with a smart electronic access control system, you will never have to worry about lost keys again! If a tenant moves out, simply remove their access capabilities from the system, and create a new access code for the new tenants! This provides amazing security benefits, peace of mind, as well as cost cutting capabilities.

Full Control of Who Can Enter Where and at What Times

If you have multiple building complexes or a large building, there’s likely many areas that you’d like to prevent residents from accessing, as well as communal areas that you’d like residents to have access to – potentially only at certain times. Access control systems allow you to create custom codes for certain areas like staff rooms, security rooms, boiler rooms, and storage areas that can only be used by management staff and code-holders. You can adjust codes to allow residents to access only certain areas, as well as ensuring that certain codes only work on certain areas at certain times. This creates a safe and secure environment, protecting all restricted areas from prying eyes and hands.

Bar Strangers from Building Access – Preventing Package Theft

With online packages from sources like Amazon and eBay being incredibly common these days, package theft has become the scourge of building managers everywhere. It can be really difficult, especially in larger residential complexes, to track who enters property and when – as well as ensuring that only residents and visitors with permission are coming into the property. This makes it easier for thieves and burglars to gain access to the property – trust us, they know this, which is why they are more brazen than ever with stealing packages. And the facts are that buildings that utilize traditional, old-school, mechanical locks and keys are at much greater risk of theft and crime – due to how much easier it is to pick these locks, as well as the possibility of strangers simply walking into the building when doors are left open. Smart access control systems allow you to get an audited report on who uses their access control cards, and when – as well as effectively preventing the possibility of any sort of stranger simply walking into the building. Not only does this keep your residents – and their packages – safe from potential thieves, but it also fosters an environment of peace of mind for your tenants, who will know that they and their property is protected from the risk of strangers skulking around the building and potentially running off with their packages.

Non-Stop sent Chuck to do my door. I had to change keys because my abusive boyfriend finally moved out. He was very friendly and very professional. He even arrived about 5 minutes before the time he was supposed to be! He told me that he has worked for this company since they opened. It took him only about 20 minutes to do everything. The price is reasonable: $65 flat rate and $35 per door. I work on a customer service-oriented job and I can definitely say that this company excels in that part. If you need a locksmith in the Logan Square, Avondale area, don’t waste your time with other companies. Just call Non-Stop! Thanks, Chuck!

Had a car lockout and needed an ignition key. Went to the Infiniti and Nissan dealership (Berman’s Infiniti) to “try” and get stuff sorted out but was met with bad service and tons of misinformation which left a bad impression. One person said one thing and the tech said another. I lost a lot of time and wasted effort trying to get stuff from the dealer’s service center. Then I got a referral to Non-Stop locksmith to get the job done. Quote was accurate had a great job done, courteous service and fast quality work. Dude made keys on the spot! My tech Robert went up and beyond my expectations to help me out of a jam.

My husband and I just bought our first place and needed the locks changed. Being that we needed it done quickly and after business hours (right after closing), I took a chance on going with the first place on Yelp. I couldn’t be happier!! CHRIS came out and was fantastic. He’s very knowledgeable on his craft and super friendly. He got the job done fast and the locks/keys work great. I’m actually about to call again, right now, to change another lock we didn’t know to change that night (for a storage room). Now, I’ve never needed locks changed, but I thought the prices to be reasonable. They charge by the item, not the hour, and gave me pricing right over the phone.
