The Right Size
Make sure that the automation system fits the size of your main entrance. This is crucial because a lot of business owners actually buy the smallest automation system they can find. They think that as long as their door is working properly they can immensely lean on the security features and save money by essentially buying fairly light automation system. This is a serious mistake because if you get a lot of foot traffic, you need an opening system that can have a long enough product life to maximize your total use value.
You have to understand the concept of total use value – you take the price of the product and you divide it by how many times you get to successfully use the product – the lower the per use cost, the better the value of the product. On the other hand, if the system breaks down rather quickly, this means that you already operated it a few times and it’s per use value cost is actually quite high. Pay attention to the impact of durability because this goes a long way in your ability to get every red cent of value out of your door entry system purchase.
