ISC West 2018 Access Control Rundown

By: Brian Rhodes, Published on Apr 06, 2018

For ISC West 2018, what is new and interesting in access control? 

This rundown will bring you up to speed on the exhibitors, what they are releasing, and give you an idea of what is new.

Notable Trends

In terms of marketwide trends, three themes are featured as prominent among exhibitors:

  • Mobile Access: Multiple access management and credential companies have announced products that combine smartphones with contactless cards, using BLE, NFC, or Apps and user management portals.
  • Biometrics: While seemingly a perpetual source of 'next big thing' marketing and despite market disinterest, there are several new potentially disruptive releases.
  • Residential Access: Interestingly, products and platforms built for residential access control, often including lock types like padlocks not used in commercial access is a growing segment as well.

In the company breakout sections that follow we include the new entrants in each of these macro-trends.
