Coworking managers are responsible for creating a clean, professional and accessible environment for members, but they shouldn’t sacrifice security to do so. Coworking spaces may need to be accessed after typical workday hours to give members the workspace they need to be productive and to give third-parties the ability to maintain the coworking office.
With more and more companies offering remote positions and with the coworking concept becoming more popular, coworking businesses need to make the most of their space. An access control system lets coworking managers track and measure usage, beyond just available desks and offices.
Coworking spaces often clear out after 5:00 PM when the typical work day is over. Coworking space managers may want to find ways to use the space during non-peak hours or weekends and bring in additional revenue.
Keyless entry and smart lock systems offer security and convenience for coworking spaces that you don’t get with traditional lock and key systems. Although smart lock systems are reliable there comes a time, as with any electronic device, that the power source begins to die. There are easy ways to ensure you or your members are never locked out of your coworking space.
Electronic access control is the modern way to gain entry to a building and to restricted areas within it. These systems are ideal for commercial spaces that have lots of people coming and going, especially if added security is needed once you’re inside.
It’s definitely not hard to unlock and open a single door. But consider the magnitude of entry points into an office building. Now consider the number of entryways a coworking space may have. Suddenly the task of managing access is a little more daunting. There’s a number of options available for managing entry into a coworking space.
Coworking spaces provide many perks for members. From flexible schedules to clean facilities, there’s little that members have to worry about. What makes coworking spaces great for members can also be a nightmare for managers and owners. Granting and managing temporary access to a coworking space can be a tedious task — there’s lots of opportunity for error.
