Access Control Integration Statistics 2016

Author: Brian Rhodes, Published on Dec 13, 2016

When it comes to connecting access control with other security systems, integrator survey results clearly show it is not common for most.  However, when they are integrated, the brands being integrated make a big difference.

We look deeper at survey results and integrator color comments inside.

Response Breakdowns

We asked integrators:

"What percentage of your access systems are integrated with another security system? Which other systems are most commonly integrated?"

Here is the breakdown of those percentages:
