However possible, what is the probability?
This has been a major selling point for many Mercury based EAC systems. Replacing legacy and expensive Lenel systems, for example, at a fraction of the cost with great RoI, in the matter of months in some applications. This seems to be a growing trend with a lot of newer EAC platforms entering the PhySec space.
- Is this a positive trend?
- Is there real value to the end-user?
- Is this a sustainable approach for the EAC market?
- If Mercury is the only major, "open platform" controller manufacture, could this potentially create a major bottle neck in the industry?
I have a lot of thoughts on this, would love to see how others perceive this growing trend. What are the issues with open platform vs. proprietary systems.
Also.. can one legitimately market "Upgrade your Security System over the Weekend".
