With sustainable development, society is becoming more and more dependent on power and renewable energy. Securing every phase of the power supply chain has never been more crucial. However, the power industry is composed of a complex system with geographically diverse power stations and substations in rural locations, making it vulnerable to theft and vandalism. These incidents can lead to the interruption of power supply and severe loss of revenue. Moreover, when it comes to high- or medium-voltage equipment and cables, unauthorized entry can cause environmental damage and even fatal accidents.
While outsiders' access to places must be strictly limited, the passage of workers must be as quick and easy as possible. To protect flexibly against these threats, a cloud-based access management system is the perfect solution, not to mention the keyless entry solutions, which critical infrastructure utilities are adopting more and more instead of traditional mechanical systems. With simplified logistics and saving of costs and time, it provides the highest level of safety, control and operational efficiency for all aspects of the power industry, from generation to transmission and distribution.
Why should every power utility operator consider the possibilities of keyless locking? Let's look closer at the primary benefits of today's solutions.
