Which Access Control Line To Go With: Paxton Or ICT

We are looking to expand our Access control options. Two lines that we are looking at are ICT and Paxton.

We are trying to decide which to go with. So far the only comparison we found is from the manufacturers literature. Those that have used both, which do you like better and why?

Protege ** is a web-based unified alarm and access control system that does 128 doors, 512 alarm zones, 32 alarm areas/partitions, 10000 Users (cards/codes). There is no software with WX, the web-based UI is built directly into the main system controller. You do not need to be certified to install WX, although certification (done online, takes about 3-4 hours with a 1 hour exam) will unlock a number of advanced functions (elevator control, automation functions, video verification, more) for your installations once it is completed. WX is an extremely simple system to set-up and program.
