Access Control Lines Gaining and Losing Ground

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 04, 2014

IPVM survey results of 100 integrators show which access control manufacturers are gaining and losing ground in 2014.

Integrators answered 2 questions:

"Added: This year, in 2014, what new product lines have you added? Why?"

"Dropped: This year, in 2014, what new product lines have you dropped? Why?"

They described what access product lines they are adding and dropping, including their reasons for their moves. We examine the results in this update.

Key Themes

Three distinct but common themes emerged for being the reason integrators dropped or added access lines:

**** ****** ******* ** *** *********** **** ***** ****** ******* manufacturers *** ******* *** ****** ****** ** ****.
