Learn more about access control systems in Nexudus.
Access control systems are a safe and convenient way to remotely control who can access your space and use its amenities.
Door locks in your space are linked to the access control system in which you create access groups. Access groups define a selection of doors that customers can unlock if they are part of the group. Each access group you create should include all the doors customers need to unlock in order to access an area of your space or a specific resource.
Access groups are then linked to Nexudus items such as passes, desks, offices or resources. Customers are automatically added to the linked access groups when they purchase a pass, book a resource, or rent a desk.
Advantages of Access Control Systems
Access control systems can improve your space's operations in several ways:
- Extend your opening hours
Customers can access different areas of your space and unlock doors autonomously, including when you don't have staff physically in the space.
- Increase security
Customers can only access areas and unlock doors if they're part of an access group that includes the doors they're trying to unlock.
- Get accurate occupancy reports
Customers are checked in and out as they unlock doors in your space which improves the accuracy of occupancy reports of resources, desks, and offices. This feature is only available with some of the available access control systems.
