As a company this has been in the space for 20 years sort of expected a bit more in the form of enhanced security. A device with network connection as well as all other door peripherals on the unsecure side of the door is not very secure even with tampers. Big question is how do they treat Cyber Security, are you willing to punch a hole in your firewall to install a PoE reader? I sure hope they support enhanced security like 802.1x EAP-TLS Certs.

Are you ok with a sacrifice in network security for the ease of deployment convenience using a PoE device on the perimeter? Think about external IP cameras, same deal.....

Food for thought!
