Integrators told us their average door count of their access control projects, and their answers reveal key drivers in the market.
In this note, we analyze their responses, and look at the whether typical projects are getting larger or smaller.
Average Project Sizes
There are two distinct 'typical' project sizes:
- Small: 4 to 16 doors represented almost 50% of responses. This size encompasses most commercial systems.
- Large: Systems with more than 16 doors represented over 40% of responses, with 10% reporting more than 64 doors representing 'very large' institutional and enterprise systems.
The chart below displays how the answers were distributed:
This distribution shows peaks at 4 - 8 doors, typically smaller systems controlling a few security-critical doors in a single commercial property, and another jump at 32 - 64 doors, for enterprises and larger facilities that make heavy use of access control throughout their campuses.
