Top Trends in Access Control 2013

By Brian Rhodes, Published Apr 16, 2013, 12:00am EDT (Info+)

All of a sudden, Access Control has momentum? After a long period of apparent stagnation and staleness, new technologies and devoted marketing campaigns have breathed life into the segment. Indeed, while the recent ISC West show was thin on new video releases, a myriad of new access platforms and related technologies made their debut.

While the noise surrounding access has increased, what general trends worth keeping an eye on? To make this task easier, we hosted a "Trends in Access Control" seminar at our ISC West event and discussed the following points:

  • The RISE of Mobile Credentials
  • The RACE to 'Control the Uncontrolled'
  • The FUSION of VMS and Access
  • The STANDARDIZATION of Credentials
  • The CLAMOR for Interoperability

thank you for following through to look at infinias... we have been using the product since its pelco days... i look forward to your review on the controller and software...

We had many Intellium (now Infinias) installations, before switching to S2. Those systems still run rock-solid. The thing that blew me away was that the core software for a large amount of controllers was a set price of < $500.
