In the event an access credential is lost, stolen, or renounced, each modification in the users/residents of the homes will revoke their right to access in real time without restricting the rights of the other users. This prevents expensive key and lock changes, in real time, with no delays and ensuring protection against external attacks or possible attempts to sabotage the system from the Internet.
Our clients' experience (more than 1,000 Homeowner Associations throughout Spain) shows that potential criminals choose to attack areas that are not equipped with security systems, whether single-family homes or neighbourhood associations. Both the installation of security cameras as well as access control systems for vehicles and/or pedestrians deter criminals in 90% of cases, preventing robberies and acts of vandalism from occurring inside the buildings belonging to the neighbourhood associations, as well as in the common areas inside the buildings.
The most common security weak spot is the door of the communal parking area or garage. This is an example that we have found on a locksmith's website:
“We can copy more than 90% of the remote controls for garages, parking areas and alarms on the market in our establishment, both those with a fixed code and those with changing codes. We can supply both the original remote as well as a compatible copy. We have a wide variety of long distance remote controls from the most prestigious brands on the market. They all comply with European regulations".
This obvious and frequently-used competitive advantage puts the legitimate residents of the neighbourhood association at a clear disadvantage. This can lead to a lack of security in the parking area, storage spaces or gates. Anyone can rent a parking spot in a garage for two months and copy the remote and thieves will then have direct access to the parking area whenever they want with total impunity. They can enter and scope out the luxury cars for instance, which are then robbed by organised gangs. They can also keep tabs on individuals as they enter and leave home, learn the location of storage units, and so on.
We protect the parking access points with security cameras but we do not know if the person entering with a key and acting normally is really an owner or resident or just someone who has a key but shouldn't. If a homeowner association wants to have truly secure access points to the garage they should reinforce the security camera system by implementing mechanisms in the access doors that are only responsive to an access credential that identifies a truly authorised user, ones that save the date and time of access and leave a record in the event of forced entry. These mechanisms also need to be able to deny or allow access, send an alarm signal to the video surveillance camera system and activate the recording or send a warning to an alarm centre. Only then can we consider the access to the buildings in the homeowner association secure.
ACCESS CONTROL PROXIMITY CARDS
The Access Control card readers for Neighbourhood Associations work with proximity cards, remote controls and mobile phones among other devices. These devices always use encrypted and changing codes, offering a high level of security. These high-security smart cards offer contactless activation for the vehicle access control system, which enables the cards to be read at a distance. This prevents wear and tear on the card due to contact with the reader, thereby guaranteeing long-term durability and effectiveness. Each card has its own unique code that identifies each individual user.
